LASIK Eye Surgery Cost & Financing

Berkeley Eye Center strives to make quality LASIK affordable for everyone.

At Berkeley Eye Center, we offer one LASIK price, regardless of your correction needs. We are not the lowest price provider of LASIK, nor are we the highest price provider of LASIK. We attempt to provide the best value for LASIK. That means continued investment in the latest technology and equipment, proper maintenance of equipment and extensive diagnostic testing. This means we can help you achieve the best visual outcome possible.

With the utilization of patient financing or a small down payment, patients are able to get the cost of LASIK down to as low as 3 dollars per day. *

*This assumes a 25% down payment or financing the entire amount for 60 months.

What Factors Can Influence Your LASIK Eye Surgery Cost?

  • Current Quality Of Vision: Some eye surgeons charge more for people with worse visual acuity. At Berkeley Eye Center, we give you the same price as every patient for your Laser Vision Correction procedure, regardless of the severity of your prescription.
  • Insurance And Vision Plans: Most medical/vision plans consider Laser Vision Correction an elective procedure.  However, some vision plans may offer a discount on LASIK.
  • Experience: Surgeons with the most experience tend to charge a bit more because they bring lots of expertise to the table. Newer surgeons may have lower prices to help them compete with the more experienced surgeons, such as our doctors who have helped more than 60,000 patients.
  • Technology: Vision centers that invest in the latest, safest technology often charge slightly more to cover the costs of new lasers. Berkeley Eye Center continually strives to offer our patients the advantages of the most advanced technology available.

What Is Included In The Cost Of LASIK Eye Surgery?

The initial screening and preliminary testing is free.

If it appears you are a candidate, a thorough dilated eye exam and additional testing will be performed. If you are not a candidate for LASIK, this exam will provide you with an updated prescription for glasses or contacts.

Once it is determined you are a good candidate for LASIK , the LASIK procedure will be scheduled when you are ready. The cost for the procedure includes post-operative visits for 6 months after the procedure and any potential additional treatments required within the first 2 years.
