Affording LASIK


In 2011, the average fee paid for LASIK across the USA was $2,146 per eye. LASIK options at Buckley Chang Eye Institute range from $1,200 to $2,400 per eye, depending on the specific technologies used and if you take advantage of our 20/20 Money Back Guarantee.

Beware of cut-rate LASIK options, like those advertised for $499. Your eyes are nothing to skimp on; make sure you are first and foremost signing on with a reputable, experienced surgeon. And make sure you know exactly what is included in the overall price of your LASIK procedure. The LASIK fee at Buckley Chang Eye Institute includes:

  • Initial evaluation
  • Pre-operative exam, including in-depth evaluations of your eyes
  • Laser vision correction procedure
  • Post-operative care for a minimum of 3 months

Cut-rate operations may provide substandard service like outdated technology by inexperienced surgeons (yikes!) and often have “hidden” charges for major and minor steps in the process. In fact, you will probably end up paying the same amount when the process is all said-and-done…but the end results will be inferior.

Financing & Flex Plan Options

Many insurance plans cover LASIK, so be sure to analyze your benefits to find out what may be covered.

To help you afford LASIK, Buckley Chang Eye Institute is proud to offer financing options through CareCredit® with 0%-interest financing for up to 24 months and low-interest extended payment options for up to 60 months. Our LASIK Finance Coordinator can help you with every step in this process.

Another way to save money on your LASIK procedure is by taking advantage of your company’s Flexible Spending Account or Cafeteria Plan. These allow you to allocate pre-tax dollars to use for your LASIK procedure. There is a catch: You must make sure you are a good candidate for LASIK before entering the program; if you put money into the account and find out you cannot have LASIK, you will lose that money. You must also use the Flex dollars within a specific time period.
