What you need to know about investing in your vision
The price of LASIK eye surgery varies quite a bit, depending on where you have the procedure done and which Los Angeles LASIK surgeon performs the surgery. The following factors make a substantial difference when determining the final cost of LASIK in Los Angeles:
The level of vision correction required. The cost of your procedure will depend on how poor your eyesight is. If your vision is very poor, you will pay more than someone with a milder problem.
The technology. The newer and more advanced the technology used during your procedure, the most expensive it will be. At the Benjamin Eye Institute, we leverage the latest advancements in the field to ensure our patients have access to the highest-quality version of the procedure available. When evaluating practices for LASIK, be sure to request a breakdown of the technologies used and how they impact your final cost.
The surgeon’s skill. The final factor that plays a large part in determining the cost of your procedure is the skill level of your surgeon. If you select a very experienced surgeon, (which we recommend), you can expect to pay for that expertise.
Because the factors that contribute to the cost of your procedure will also impact its effectiveness and safety, we strongly advise against looking for a heavily discounted version of LASIK. The procedure involves eliminating tissue and cannot be undone, so it’s critical that you choose an experienced surgeon with a high level of expertise, along with a safe and well-regarded facility. Selecting a practice for your procedure is an extremely important decision, one in which quality – not cost – should be the primary deciding factor
