When it comes to your vision, looking for the cheapest option is not in your best interest. The cost of LASIK differs greatly based on a large number of factors including: location of the center, the degree of your refractive error, the experience of the surgeon you choose, the type of technology employed, additional fees that are included.
You should expect to pay somewhere between $1500 and $3000 per eye for this procedure. Make sure you fully understand whether the fee quoted by the surgeon is all inclusive or should you expect additional fees to be added on. The cost you are given should include standard medication (eye drops, anesthesia, pain medications), pre-op diagnostic testing, all facility fees, the LASIK surgeon fee, post-surgical consultations and followup care.
The type of the equipment used - either IntraLase or WaveFront - will be reflected in the fee. Most centers offer good payment plans such as no money down payments or interest free payments. Beware of refractive centers that advertise LASIK surgery at bargain prices as it usually does not mean you will actually get low fees. These ads look great on the surface yet they typically don't include any extra costs and you might end up paying much more than you'd expect.
