Discount LASIK: Don't Believe the Hype
If you're considering LASIK, perhaps you've seen ads for low-cost procedures. While
affordability is a major question for anybody thinking about laser eye surgery, it's important to
examine the fine print before making the price point your primary concern.
For example, a LASIK doctor might run a promotion that says he can correct your vision for the
low price of $1,500 for each eye. If this deal sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is.
Most patients aren't candidates for this kind of cut-rate LASIK because a number of restrictions
apply. At that price, the surgeon will likely require a patient's vision prescription to be near the
ideal strength with no astigmatism.
If you fail to meet these very specific criteria, the cost of the LASIK procedure will begin to climb.
More sophisticated technology will be needed to achieve your vision correction goals, and the
provider will pass the cost on to you, the consumer.
At Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center, we believe in being honest with our patients. Before
discussing how much LASIK might cost, Dr. Wilmarth will perform an evaluation of your vision at
our Greater Sacramento area office. This consultation is available free of charge, and will
enable our laser eye surgeon to assess your suitability for LASIK and discuss what might be
involved in the procedure, as well as the investment necessary to achieve your goals.
To schedule your free vision consultation at our Sacramento LASIK facility, please call Wilmarth
Eye and Laser Center at 916-850-3060 today.
