LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser vision correction or eye surgery, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.
LASIK is most similar to another surgical corrective procedure, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and both represent advances over radial keratotomy in the surgical treatment of refractive errors of vision.
Wavefront-guided LASIK is a variation of LASIK surgery in which a computer maps out the surface of the eye, this mapping helps the surgeon reshape the eye with a bladeless laser to change the way the cornea reflects light. The goal is to achieve a more optically perfect eye.
Lasik Eye Costs
Laser eye surgery for both eyes costs from $2500 to $6000 and as with most elective surgeries the cost of LASIK eye surgery can vary from one provider to another. The actual cost will depend on location, what technology the surgeon suggests, how much vision correction is required, and how difficult your procedure may be.
Lasik Eye Surgery and Insurance Coverage
Unfortunately, most insurance companies will not cover LASIK eye surgery because laser eye surgery is nearly always considered an elective or cosmetic surgery. However, please consult with your eye specialist to enquire in detail about your medical condition and possible coverage.
If your health insurance plan does not cover LASIK eye surgery, you may decide to pay for the surgery yourself. This is where we come in - Credit Medical can provide you with the credit you deserve.
