Lehi, Utah -
Located in Lehi, UT, Waite Vision recently released an article discussing the costs of LASIK in their area, which is available on their website’s blog space, ‘How Much Does LASIK Cost in Utah’ explores the various cost elements of LASIK and considerations to keep in mind when choosing a vision correction surgeon.
While better vision and the freedom from contact lenses and glasses is priceless, Waite Vision understands people have a budget to consider as well, which is why it is beneficial for people to understand the various considerations that go into LASIK costs. The article estimates laser eye surgery may cost between $2000 to $9000 (per eye) across the US, depending on a variety of factors that include the individual services provided, location of the clinic, technology used, the surgeons’ experience with each surgery, and the degree of vision correction required by each patient.
The location may stand out to some since it seems to have no direct link to the procedure itself. The article points out, as with most things, location may affect the cost of LASIK eye surgery and all vision correction procedures. Laser vision correction often costs more in highly populated locations like New York City than in a smaller town where costs of living, such as food, housing, and taxes, may be lower. In Utah, the average LASIK cost is around $2,500 - $3,000 per eye.
The article goes on to suggest when thinking about something as crucial as your eyesight, Waite Vision does not advise finding the best deal for LASIK eye surgery or other vision correction procedures. They advise you to consider your LASIK surgeon and their training, expertise, equipment, and quality of service. You will often discover that the price of LASIK is closely correlated with the quality of care.
While LASIK is deemed an elective procedure (which means insurance plans tend not to cover it), a patient may choose to utilize funds from their health savings accounts (HSAs) or flexible spending accounts (FSAs) for their laser eye surgery.
Another important factor patients will want to consider is the expertise of the surgeon and their team. Regular training for medical professionals and surgeons will result in greater expenses associated with offering top-notch treatment at vision clinics. If a vision correction procedure's cost looks particularly low or discounted, it's conceivable that not as much money has been spent on finding, retaining, and developing qualified professionals.
“The amount of time your refractive surgeon spends before, during and after your procedure also affects the price,” says the article. “Instead of a medical professional or surgeon doing the examination, some vision clinics choose to use sales employees. You may not get to see your surgeon until just before the treatment since they could employ visiting or outside surgeons to do surgeries. The quality of care may be compromised as a result of cost-cutting measures.”
LASIK is an investment that can save far more in the long run than it costs today. Waite Vision estimates an individual who undergoes LASIK at the age of 18 may save more than $40,000 in vision-related expenses over the next two decades, and the freedom gained by undergoing vision correction surgery and not being reliant on glasses or contact lenses is priceless. Waite Vision has witnessed the life-changing impact such procedures have had on their own patients on countless occasions.
Considered to be one of the top providers of LASIK in Utah, Waite Vision is committed to helping patients understand their vision correction options, including the associated costs with the services they offer. Waite Vision is also committed to their ongoing investment in technology, diagnostics, dedicated employees and more, and welcome the opportunity to show you why Waite Vision is different from other vision correction facilities.
