One of the most common things we hear from our patients after LASIK is, “I wish I had done this sooner.” So what held them back? Too often, it’s finances. Can I afford it? How will I pay for it? Is it worth it? With so many questions, it’s easy to see how misconceptions can form. Think you can’t afford LASIK? Think again. We asked Brian Thuringer, Durrie Vision’s Lead Counselor, to outline the common financial obstacles our patients face and how we can help overcome them.
1. “I don’t have the money to pay for a procedure up front.”
For many, the up front cost of a procedure can make laser vision correction feel out of reach. Fortunately, Durrie Vision has financing options to fit any budget, including 0 down and 0% interest for 24 months. During a consultation you’ll have the opportunity to review a number of options to help make a decision that works for you.
2. “My insurance covers glasses and contacts, why not LASIK?”
The procedures at Durrie Vision are considered elective, which are not covered by insurance. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use your other benefits to better your vision. Many employers offer Health Savings or Flex Spending plans, which allow you to set aside tax-free dollars to pay for eligible medical expenses – including LASIK.
3. “Staying in glasses and contacts is cheaper anyway.”
Do you know what you’re already spending on your vision? Check out our online Cost Comparison Calculator to see how expenses related to contacts and glasses can really add up. Once you understand what you’re already spending, you can see how laser vision correction can help save both time and money in the long run. Instead of worrying about getting a new prescription each year or ordering a new box of expensive contacts every few months, you can be free of both those worries and the many inconveniences of glasses and contacts.
When considering a vision correction procedure, financial considerations should not be an obstacle in obtaining the care you deserve. At Durrie Vision, our goal is to make vision correction procedures affordable while providing world-renowned surgeons, the most up-to-date technology, and the best possible outcomes for your vision.
