LASIK Eye Surgery Cost
How Much Does LASIK Cost in Indianapolis?
Because LASIK is a customized procedure based on each patient’s unique vision correction needs, an exact price can’t be determined without a comprehensive evaluation first. On average, LASIK eye surgery costs $1,800-2,900 per eye in Indianapolis, but the price varies depending on the LASIK facility, the technology utilized,, the experience of the surgeon, and the procedure variations required.
Like other health procedures you may be considering, understanding cost could be a top priority. While cost is no doubt an important factor, the overall quality of the care and provider, and visual outcomes should also be at the forefront when deciding whether LASIK is right for you.
Can I Afford LASIK?
We like to think of LASIK as an investment that can actually save money over time. When considering that LASIK may allow you to live without contact lenses and eyeglasses for many years, the cost of LASIK is actually cheaper in the long-term.
In addition, there are many different available options to afford the procedure. Eye Surgeons of Indiana LASIK Center offers financing options that can help make LASIK affordable.
One thing is certain, not only are the long-term benefits of LASIK worth the cost, but it will also be more cost-effective over the long-term!
Is LASIK Covered by Insurance?
Although many of our patients consider LASIK eye surgery a necessary and overall life-changing procedure, it is typically not covered by insurance since it is regarded as an elective procedure. However, there are many vision plans that offer a discount on LASIK. We will help determine if your benefits include any discounts or coverage for the procedure.
Can Medical Savings Accounts Help Pay for LASIK?
Employers usually sponsor Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). LASIK is typically covered under these plans, among other vision correction procedures. Patients participating in Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts are able to set aside tax-free funds from their earnings for Vision Correction Procedures, such as LASIK. A maximum contribution of $2,750 is allowed per year for FSAs.
Is LASIK Tax Deductible?
Tax-deductible medical expenses such as LASIK and vision correction surgery can be deducted by the IRS. We recommend talking with your tax consultant to see if you qualify for a tax deduction.
