Your Goal: Affordability Without Compromising On Quality
Understanding Lasik pricing and interpreting the various claims made by different Lasik centers can be a challenge for even the most sophisticated shopper.
Which claims are genuine? Which ones have hidden quality or care issues? How do I get the best value? Do I have to juggle Cost Vs. Quality of Technology? What does it all mean?
The clues to understanding this mystery can actually be simple by just keeping a few basic marketing principals in mind when evaluating these ads:
“Official Eye Doctor of your Favorite sports team” – Sounds great but you need to know two things; 1) The Lasik practice and doctor is paying for this title and these sponsorships are expensive. 2) the cost of this designation is being passed along to you in higher Lasik fees.
“Lasik starting at only $299 per eye” – what a deal until you find out that no one really qualifies for this price and this procedure uses old outdated technology that can lead to complications and poor results for a lifetime. The low prices advertised by some centers usually mean the surgeon will not use the most advanced technology available for your procedure.
“If it sounds too good to be true, it usually isn’t! – When you hear about big discounts for special study groups you can assume that it’s not really true and your price can actually be higher than others with more advanced technology.
Bottom line – when you compare the cost of a Lasik procedure at different centers make sure you are really comparing apples and apples:
- Is it an all laser procedure?
- What is the technology being used? Know your options?
- How much experience does the surgeon have doing all laser procedures?
- What is the plan for your care, what happens if your vision changes after say 10 years?
- Finally, don’t compare the discount, compare your final cost.
Newer technology solves the problems that older technology couldn’t address, so this is really a choice between the best possible outcome or something that could involve unwanted compromises or complications. In other words, instead of the best procedure with the most modern equipment, you’ll receive a watered down version and pay accordingly.
