Are LASIK Deals A Good Thing? Making LASIK More Affordable

If you Google “LASIK deals” online, you’ll find dozens of coupons offering hundreds of dollars in discount off the price of the surgery. But are LASIK deals a good thing? When you consider that having LASIK surgery can cost between $4,000-$5,000, finding a way to make it cheaper can seem like a good idea.

But there’s a big difference between getting a good deal on a car and choosing to have LASIK performed simply based on price. Your investment in vision correction should reflect how much you value your health and vision. So, instead of looking for LASIK deals with a discount LASIK provider, your vision is best served by choosing a highly qualified surgeon who works with the most advanced LASIK technologies available to improve your vision.

The saying “you get what you pay for” is certainly true when deciding who should perform your vision correction procedure. A highly-qualified surgeon, one with extensive training and the expertise that comes with performing many surgeries – and who has invested in and uses the latest technologies – isn’t likely to offer significant discounts or LASIK deals.

However, there are ways to help make LASIK more affordable that don’t impact your ability to choose the right surgeon for your needs:

While it pays to be cost-conscious, when it comes to your health and vision it is worth it to make the investment in quality care.  The most important factors for choosing to have a procedure like LASIK eye surgery are selecting a highly qualified surgeon, making sure you are a good or even excellent candidate for the procedure, and taking the time to research it so you are well informed about the risks and benefits.
