Many of our patients that we see here at Wellish Vision institute have questions regarding the LASIK procedure. We are here to answer them.
Is LASIK Safe?
LASIK is one of the most commonly performed elective procedures in North America, and there’s little question as to why it is rated so highly. It is safe and effective, provides almost immediate results, is virtually painless, and has a speedy recovery time. One of the other main positives is that the procedure itself typically takes less than 10 minutes. Combined with the rapid recovery, LASIK is an excellent option for active, on-the-go patient lifestyles. If you are suffering from any vision issues or problems, LASIK may be an ideal solution for you.
Can Everyone Have LASIK Eye Surgery?
The vast majority of people who need or want LASIK are candidates. However, certain restrictions may exist, including chronic dry eye, which affects many people in Las Vegas. In order to determine if you are a good candidate you will need to come into one of our Las Vegas offices for a preliminary exam – we have locations serving the Westside, Eastside and Henderson.
How Much does LASIK Cost in Las Vegas?
In Las Vegas, LASIK eye surgery typically costs anywhere from $1,000-$2,500 per eye. This can be a barrier, but if you currently wear glasses or contact lenses then you know that the costs associated with them add up very quickly – in fact, you will end up spending many time the cost of LASIK on glasses or contacts over the course of your life. Many people are turning to LASIK for this reason, as in the long run it’s the much cheaper option.
At Wellish Vision Institute, we pride ourselves on making clear vision achievable for people on almost any budget through our LASIK financing programs. Check out our financing page for more details on how we can help you make LASIK affordable.
