Making the Cost of LASIK Eye Surgery Affordable

Your eyes are precious. You use them every single day from the moment you wake up in the morning until the minute you close your eyes to rest at night. Our goal is to make San Diego LASIK surgery affordable for you! We continually study the competition to make sure we offer the best value. We will do everything in our power to make LASIK surgery in San Diego affordable for you.

Below are some of the different ways we can work to make this dream come true for you.


How can we make LASIK surgery in San Diego affordable?

Financing is a popular method for handling the cost of LASIK eye surgery in San Diego. We work with several different financing companies. We are able to offer LASIK financing through CareCredit, Chase, Unicorn, and Capitol One Healthcare financing. We will fill out the application for you and let you know at the time of your office visit if you have been approved. We are able to offer financing for up to 94% of our LASIK patients. We actually pay a part of the interest charge for you when we offer 0% financing.

Why finance?

  • Payments as low as $79 a month
  • 0% Financing options
  • $0 Down options
  • 0 payments for 12 months options
  • Extended terms for almost any budget
  • We will do everything in our power to make this affordable for you!
  • LASIK for the cost of a cup of coffee a day!
  • Financing Available with Chase Health Advance or CareCredit Financing.

*Subject to approval.

How do you determine the price? What is included in the price?

The main thing that determines the cost of LASIK in San Diego is the kind of advanced technology used. In order to get the best results, we will never compromise on the technology that we employ. We continually price shop the competition to make sure our prices are among the lowest. Sometimes you may see a marketing gimmick for super low-priced LASIK. These practices often have tiered pricing schemes in which the price of the procedure quickly increases. Other centers may use old and outdated lasers. Every time we use our VISX and Intralase lasers we are charged royalty fees by the laser manufacturers. Also, there is a cash discount.

The cost of glasses and contacts may range from $10,000 - $16,000 over 10-20 years. When you consider the costs of eye examinations, frames, contact lenses, solutions, and the time to maintain glasses and contacts, LASIK eye surgery may be a good alternative financially

What is included in the price?

  • All follow-up and postoperative care related to your LASIK for 12 months
  • Enhancements if necessary depending on the plan
  • Punctal plugs ($250 value each) if necessary
  • No tiered pricing or hidden costs

Does insurance pay for LASIK surgery?

The only type of health care insurance that may cover this is your flexible spending account. Unfortunately, LASIK surgery is an elective procedure and is not usually covered by insurance. Some insurance plans rarely offer some coverage. We would be happy to check your insurance plan for you.

What are flexible spending accounts?

A flexible spending account (FSA) and a flex plan (FP) may be used to pay for your LASIK procedure. This is extremely popular and effective way to pay for your LASIK procedure. Both the FP and FSA plan allows you to have flexibility in your health care choices. Either directly or through your employer, you can make pretax contributions to your plan to spend for LASIK in San Diego. These contributions are taken directly from your paycheck prior to tax deductions. FP and FSA plans are tax sheltered. However, if you do not use your FP and FSA plans you will lose them.

  • Flexible spending accounts allow pre-taxed dollars to be spent for healthcare including LASIK!
  • If you do not use your plan dollars you will lose them!
  • Please contact us if you have any questions.
