Is the cost of laser eye surgery putting you off?

Published on 9th October 2013

Laser eye correction may initially seem like an expensive option, but when you weigh up the ongoing costs of glasses and contact lenses over a lifetime, then it is good financial sense to consider having the treatment.

Glasses or Contacts versus Eye Surgery?

When you weigh the cost of a lifetime of contact lenses or glasses, you may even find that you spend much less on a laser eye treatment. It's important to consider that this is a one-time expense and the cost of glasses or lenses will be ongoing.

What is the cost of laser eye surgery?

Not all ophthalmologists will charge the same rate for laser eye surgery. Some will charge more because they are very experienced and have enough clients that they are able to raise the price without losing patients. It's not really a good idea to have treatment with a doctor who has little or no experience but our ophthalmologists have a wealth of experience having performed over 50,000 procedures between them. The prices here are fixed too so you will know before you attend your consultation exactly what the price of the treatment will be. You see your surgeon – not a salesperson and there will be no surprise price increasing once we have assessed your suitability.

Does where I have the eye surgery done impact cost?

Geographical location might have something to do with the price of procedures. You might find that a little bit of travel outside of the major urban areas could reduce the cost of laser eye surgery enough to make it affordable.
