What is the cost of contact lenses?
Hi, it’s Dr. Chotiner from Memorial Eye Institute. In this video, I’ll address the common question “What is the cost of contact lenses?”.
Laser vision correction does seem like an expensive option to correct your vision problems over the short term. Still, most patients will find that they pay much less for laser vision correction than what they would do for buying contact lenses over the course of their lifetime.
One easy way to assess this is to go to our website. This will give you some sign of how much you’re likely to pay for contact lenses over your lifetime.
After you consider the cost of contact lenses, as well as refilling prescriptions, contact lens solutions, and the amount of time you can waste fiddling with your contact lenses, you’ll be excited to stop renting your vision and start owning it.
Typically, a LASIK patient spends a fraction of what they might do on contact lenses over a lifetime. For many, this can exceed tens of thousands of dollars.
When it comes to cost, the reality is that you’re spending the money anyway; you might as well have the benefits of laser eye surgery to go with it.
In addition, for those people that don’t have the full laser eye surgery cost at hand, it is possible in most cases to spread the payment of laser treatment out. We offer a payment period of between 1-2 years – interest-free.
But before even considering cost, the most important thing you need to know is whether you’re a candidate for one of the procedures we offer.
To learn if you’re a good candidate for eye surgery, please book online for a free virtual vision assessment with our eye doctor.
