What you may not realize is that LASIK can actually save you thousands of dollars when you consider how much money you currently spend on corrective lenses, contact solutions. For example, did you know that the average contact lens wearer spends $6,000 in maintenance costs over the course of 10 years? Just one LASIK procedure can save you significant money over time.
At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, our goal is to provide each of our patients with the highest quality of eye care at a fair price. We’ve taken some time to compile this information on the cost of LASIK to help make your decision to undergo vision correction surgery a little bit easier.

Our patient coordinators will make sure you make a fully informed decision about paying for LASIK, so please feel free to come to us with any questions you may have.
Paying for LASIK
Because LASIK is a non-essential, elective procedure, medical insurance does not cover the cost. Still, there are many resources that can help bring LASIK into your budget:
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
A medical spending account like a FSA or HSA includes pre-tax funds that you may be able to use to pay for LASIK. To learn more about using your medical spending account for LASIK, contact your plan administrator.
Financing for LASIK
We are pleased to offer our patients LASIK financing options through CareCredit®. CareCredit makes it possible to undergo treatment now, then pay for it in affordable monthly payments over time. They offer low minimum payments, no-interest financing if paid within 6 months, and no up-front costs, prepayment penalties, or annual fees.
Can You Afford LASIK?
This is a question so many patients ask. In truth, however, you should be asking yourself if you can afford not to have LASIK. At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, the cost of LASIK is less than buying a cup of coffee every day, or a year of cable bills for most of our patients.
1 cable bill per month
1 cup of coffee per day
1 dinner out per week
