Lasik Cost

How Much Is Laser Eye Surgery?

One of the first questions prospective LASIK patients ask is, “How much does LASIK cost?”

The simple answer is that the average LASIK cost in Nevada is between $1,999 and $3,000 or more per eye. The cost can vary depending on your surgeon’s technology and how complicated the procedure will be.

Those numbers may inspire some sticker-shock but remember that LASIK is a one-time cost. The procedure is permanent and getting laser vision correction can save you money in the long run.

LASIK could save you

on glasses & contacts
over your lifetime
*Calculation includes $50 for contact lens solution, glasses case, and other miscellaneous items per year; $130 (per year) for a pair of prescription readers for anyone 45 years or older. Annual exams are not included in the calculation. We have factored in the average US lifespan of 79 years. Your numbers may vary.

Is LASIK Worth It?

The high out-of-pocket cost of LASIK eye surgery is one factor that often makes many people hesitate to undergo laser vision correction. While that concern is valid, most people who have had LASIK feel that it was worth the cost. More than 90% of people who have had LASIK report being satisfied with their results.

LASIK’s high success and satisfaction rates are strong evidence that it’s a worthwhile investment. The procedure can correct common refractive errors, including astigmatism and nearsightedness. Getting LASIK greatly enhances your vision, and better vision significantly impacts your overall well-being and quality of life.

Benefits of LASIK Vision Correction

After LASIK, you’ll be able to get up in the morning and have clear vision without reaching for glasses or putting in contact lenses. You won’t have to worry about misplacing your glasses or packing enough contact lens supplies when you travel. You can enjoy swimming, sports, and other activities without thinking about how well you’ll be able to see or whether your glasses will get damaged.

The financial investment in LASIK is a one-time expense that often pays for itself within a few years. You won’t need to pay for contact lenses and prescription glasses every year. Over the long term, those costs can add up to tens of thousands of dollars, which exceeds the cost of LASIK.

Don’t Be Fooled by Discount LASIK Providers

You may have run across ads for the best LASIK deals for the cheapest LASIK services.

Some national chains advertise the procedure for as little as a few hundred dollars per eye. This may seem like a smart way to save on laser eye surgery costs, but there are usually extra fees that aren’t mentioned in the ads.

These LASIK centers advertise a low base cost for the procedure alone. What they don’t say in the ads is that their advertised offer covers the LASIK surgery pricing. They charge extra fees for appointments and follow-up care. You may find yourself paying for the following on top of the base cost:

  • Higher procedure fees if you have a higher vision correction prescription or eye conditions like astigmatism or dry eye
  • Pre- and post-op appointment fees
  • Additional fees for more advanced technology options
  • Extra fees for a customized treatment plan
  • Prescription eye drops expenses to prevent post-operative infection
  • Facility use fees
  • Financing fees

When you calculate these additional LASIK surgery costs, you may end up with a bill that’s comparable to getting care at a highly regarded LASIK clinic. Unlike the care you would get at the Wellish Vision Institute, discount LASIK centers often have outdated, low-cost LASIK technology and don’t offer a full range of vision correction options.

At the Wellish Vision Institute, we won’t surprise you with hidden fees. All of our services are included in the cost of your procedure. We also offer multiple vision correction options, including LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and refractive lens exchange (RLE).

Covering the LASIK Eye Surgery Cost

LASIK is usually considered an elective procedure so health insurance doesn’t cover it. However, it’s worth checking your insurance plan details to see if they might help pay for the procedure. There may be some circumstances where expenses for vision correction surgery can be covered.

Some employers offer flexible spending accounts that allow employees to set aside pre-tax money to be used for qualified medical expenses. LASIK is a qualified expense, so an FSA is a way to save for the procedure.

At Wellish Eye Institute, we partner with Care Credit to offer financing for LASIK surgery and other vision correction procedures. Our care counselors can share the details of LASIK financing plans to help you pay for the cost of care.

Insurance eligibility and paying out-of-pocket

The LASIK procedure is often considered an elective or cosmetic surgery, which means many insurance companies may not cover LASIK. Most patients end up paying for the majority (if not all) of the procedure out of pocket. It’s still very much worth asking your insurance company about your options and if your policy includes a benefit for advanced vision correction. Each person’s needs and circumstances are different.

Flexible Spending Accounts (Tax-Free Dollars)

Many employers offer flexible spending accounts to help offset medical expenses. These accounts may allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars for certain medical costs, including procedures like LASIK.

LASIK Eye Surgery Price in Nevada

At our VIP Laser Center, we feel that quality, technology, and service are far more important than price when it comes to your vision surgery. However, we do also understand that many potential patients need to be sensitive to the cost of a procedure. That’s why we offer various packages and financing to assist you in your quest to see better now.

We do urge all patients to be cautious when shopping just by price. Many advertised prices are “teasers” designed to bring people into a clinic only to find out they don’t qualify for the advertised price. On top of that, they get charged for many additional add-on items that should be included in the quoted price. They also might not even meet the surgeon ahead of time and so might not know anything about the surgeon’s experience.

Schedule a Free LASIK Consultation

The first step of the LASIK process doesn’t cost anything at all! Wellish Vision Institute offers complimentary LASIK consultations. During these appointments, one of our experienced vision care specialists will:

Conduct a complete medical history review, including prior surgeries

  • Ask about lifestyle, career, and goals for surgery
  • Conduct a vision test
  • Perform corneal mapping
  • Check eye pressure
  • Evaluate the tear film coating

The doctor may determine during the consultation that LASIK is not the best vision correction option for you. If that’s the case, they can suggest alternative vision correction procedures, such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or refractive lens exchange (RLE). The goal is to provide the safest, most effective procedure for vision correction based on your individual needs.
