Ocular science has improved tremendously over the past few years with the development of contact lenses and glasses. These tools are used to enhance your vision and give you a chance to lead a normal life, however those who utilize these tools are more limited than they think.
One procedure that has grown to be the most widely performed operation in the world is LASIK surgery. This modern and precise way to correct your vision yields permanent results for those that choose to invest in this procedure. However, not everyone chooses to invest in it because of the cost.
The Cost of LASIK Surgery Compared to Contacts and Glasses
Typically the price for LASIK surgery is approximately $5,000 for both eyes (this also includes pre, during and post surgical care). Though the cost covers more than just one expense, it’s still causes reluctance among those that want to permanently correct their vision. However, what if the cost of LASIK surgery and contacts and/or glasses were the same?
Dr. Guy Kezirian, a board certified ophthalmologist and founder of Refractive Surgery Alliance, claims that this procedure is for nearly everyone and in the long run is cheaper than glasses and contact lenses. By investing $5,000 for this procedure, you will save $15,000 to $20,000 over your lifetime by not settling for contacts or glasses for the rest of your life.
The concept of parity financing allows many eye centers to provide LASIK surgery at the same cost as monthly expenditures for contacts and glasses.
When is the Right Time to Pursue this Procedure
If you’re considering this procedure, the best time to schedule an appointment is when your eyes have reached ocular maturity. This simply means that before the age of 18, your eyes are still changing. Usually once you reach the age of 18, your eyes have reached their full size.
