Frequently Asked Questions about LASIK

Is LASIK Painful?

No. The anesthetic eye drops applied before the surgery begins ensures that there is no pain during the procedure. You might feel a sensation of pressure or experience dimming of your vision at various points in the procedure.

How Much Does LASIK Cost?

The cost of LASIK depends on several factors such as whether one or both eyes are being treated, what technology is used, etc. Laser vision correction may be more affordable than you think. When you consider the cost of glasses, contacts, and cleaning solutions, LASIK is a long-term investment that can actually save you money while improving your quality of life. Our goal is to make LASIK affordable for everyone, so we offer flexible financing options as well.  

Will My Insurance Cover LASIK?

Most medical and vision insurance plans do not cover LASIK, as it is an elective procedure. However, flex spending accounts (FSAs) may be utilized to pay for the surgery using pre-tax dollars.

Can I Drive After LASIK?

Arrange for transportation to and from your surgery and your first follow-up visit. You will be asked to keep your eyes closed for the ride home after your procedure. We recommend having a driver for the one-day follow-up visit in case you still feel you have watery or hazy vision the next day.

Are Patients Satisfied With the Results?

Yes. LASIK has a satisfaction rate of up to 98%.¹
