How much could laser eye surgery cost?
Visible results can be seen within twenty four hours and are permanent. This procedure has become quite popular as a solution for vision correction worldwide. A representative from the Braverman eye center for Lasik in Florida stated, The surgery is performed on the cornea (It provides most of the focusing power when light enters the eye) using a topical anesthetic (drops in the eye). The procedure involves creating and folding back a thin layer of corneal tissue (corneal flap) with a Femtosecond Laser microkeratome (a laser surgical instrument much like a carpenter's plane).

However, you will probably be asked to pay a deposit against the total laser eye surgery cost either just before, or just after the appointment. This deposit is usually around 30 but it can be 100 per eye for some types of treatment. What do different types of laser eye surgery cost? PRK photorefractive keratectomy is a well established technique that has been around for nearly 30 years. An ablative laser that uses ultraviolet light is used to reshape the surface of the cornea to help focus light and images coming into the eye directly onto the cornea. This can correct the problems that lead to both long and short sightedness. PRK tends to have a lower laser eye surgery cost than LASIK surgery, and you can expect to pay between 700 and 1000 per eye.

Is Lasik Laser Eye Surgery Worth the Money?
Financial: You could literally do the maths and work out if having laser eye surgery makes financial sense. For example if you spend $500 on glasses and contact lenses each year and the total cost for your laser eye surgery is $2000 then you could say that you will have paid for the cost of your laser eye treatment in 4 years which to most people would make sense! In summary, the value of laser eye surgery really does depend on what your motives are for having the treatment. Remember this is a surgical procedure and is not a decision you should rush into without fully doing your research. It is fair to say that most people who have successfully had their vision corrected with laser eye surgery, never wish they had spent their money elsewhere.
