Americans like to haggle. No one wants to find out they could have saved a significant amount of money after leaving a car dealership!
Shopping for the best deal for you and your family makes sense, except when it comes to LASIK. We’re talking about your eyes here. Do you really want to trust a practice that’s advertising rock bottom pricing?
Keep reading to learn why you should choose a LASIK practice based on experience instead of the cost!
Price Should Not Be The Deciding Factor
You saw an ad that sounds great! LASIK surgery averaged about $2,088 per eye in 2017. You’d like to learn more about the practice that’s advertising LASIK for “as little as $299 per eye”.
Stop and think about this. Do you want to make price the deciding factor for who reshapes your cornea? Your sense of sight is crucial for understanding the world around you.
In this case, saving a lot of money should not be your end goal. Instead, take some time to research a practice. Look at their online reviews, and ask others who have had LASIK with them.
Do they seem satisfied with their vision results? When it comes to the well-being of your eyes, you’re better off picking a practice that cares about you!
We know that the cost of LASIK can be intimidating. That’s why Loden Vision Centers offers individualized financing options for patients! Don’t risk your vision for a bargain deal! With a financing plan, any patient should be able to afford LASIK!
Read The Fine Print
Remember the $299 per eye ad you looked at? There’s more to it than that.
Whenever you see ads that seem too good to be true, look at the fine print. By saying “as little as” the ad makes you think you’ll be getting LASIK for only $600 but that’s not the case.
This price is what LASIK will cost someone who has very few refractive errors to correct. Even the patient with minor vision problems will pay more than this! If you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you’re going to pay more.
The reason is that many LASIK surgeons base the cost of LASIK on the degree of correction needed. If you suffer from nearsightedness or farsightedness, more corneal tissue is removed.
If you are planning on getting LASIK, make sure to base your decision on how you feel about the practice. If it doesn’t feel like a good fit, go somewhere else! LASIK is a popular surgery but it’s best to have it performed by an experienced LASIK surgeon you trust.
At Loden Vision Centers, we treat every patient with respect. At your consultation, your surgeon will determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK. Not every patient is a good candidate. Be wary of a LASIK surgeon that performs LASIK on people who may not be the best candidates.
