LASIK eye surgery is a popular procedure that has helped nearly 15 million people in the U.S. say goodbye to their glasses and contact lenses. While you don’t have to look far to find discount offers on LASIK, there are some serious reasons to avoid cutting corners on your vision care.
When a Discount Isn’t Worth It
We have all heard the old adage “you get what you pay for.” Many providers advertise too-good-to-be-true discounts, but taking advantage of these discounts can prove quite costly. Keep these three facts in mind as you evaluate whether a low-price deal is in your best interests.
1. A La Carte Pricing.
Bargain-priced LASIK is not typically all-inclusive. You may be charged separately for your initial visit, and the price may not include pre and post-op LASIK appointments. Always ask for a written cost estimate that itemizes every service you’ll receive and read the fine print. At Cutarelli Vision, we offer all-inclusive pricing for our LASIK procedures.
2. Services, Packages, and Technology Vary.
The discount may be attractive, but your procedure may not include the most advanced LASIK technologies. While some people are perfectly suited to conventional LASIK, today’s modern LASIK offers a more precise procedure, a lower risk of complications, and a vision correction treatment that’s tailored to your eyes and vision.
3. Your Vision is Unique.
Discount pricing usually covers those people with low nearsightedness, which requires the most basic and least expensive LASIK procedure – often referred to as conventional LASIK. People with farsightedness and astigmatism are not good candidates for this procedure, so if you fall in those categories, you wind up paying much more than those who pay the “discount” price.
Your Vision is Worth It
LASIK is an investment and the decision to have the procedure should not be based solely on price.
