How Much Does LASIK Cost?
Though prices vary across the country, LASIK can cost between $2,000 and $4,000 per eye. You may see ads for procedures under $1,000 per eye, but those are often bait and switch tactics.
They are meant to lure in a patient, who is charged much more than the advertised price.
For a safe LASIK procedure, you should go to a board-certified and fellowship trained ophthalmologist. They should have ample experience performing LASIK surgery successfully.
All the physicians at Huffman & Huffman, P.S.C. are board certified. We’re also trained in the latest LASIK technology. This is to ensure our patients get their desired results.
