SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Those eager to ditch their contacts or glasses and undergo LASIK eye surgery often start with one question: How much does LASIK cost?
It’s not a simple answer. Many people considering the procedure don’t initially realize there are different types of LASIK – and, in fact, LASIK itself is just one of several laser-based procedures designed to reshape the eye’s surface for better vision. Prices can vary based on the type of procedure, the technology used by the surgeon, and the difficulty of the prescription being corrected. And, of course, each surgeon sets their own fees.
To help those considering vision surgery understand the different procedures and the range of costs, AllAboutVision.com has published an exclusive vision surgery price report. The report, which includes detailed cost information provided by a leading refractive industry analyst for full-year 2013, can be accessed at http://www.allaboutvision.com/visionsurgery/cost.htm.
“Our new report shows that the average cost of laser vision correction is $2,073 per eye,” says Liz Segre, AllAboutVision.com editorial director. “When people hear advertisements for prices way lower than that, they should ask plenty of questions about what that price includes. Look out for additional charges that may not be included in the quoted price.” For a complete list of tips on how to compare LASIK costs, visit http://www.allaboutvision.com/visionsurgery/understand-cost.htm.
