Methodology

Our prices are the estimated costs you can expect to pay for LASIK surgery. Prices shown include all applicable "cash-pay" and uninsured discounts. The primary source of our cost data is from first-hand surveys with ophthalmologists in the United States.  The data is further supplemented by publicly available claims data and provider websites. When going for your laser eye surgery evaluation, there are also additional potential costs to consider. For instance, always ask if your initial consultation is free. Some centers may charge a fee (commonly $100-$150) that will be applied to the surgery. We also suggest that you always ask about LASIK enhancements (necessary touch-ups to re-treat an eye if the eye is not satisfactory). Most quality practitioners offer this protection in their base price.
