How Lasik Can Save You Money

Wondering whether you could benefit from getting LASIK eye treatment?

Have you been thinking about whether you could benefit from LASIK? Perhaps you love the idea of being able to wake up and see everything clearly or you would rather not have to fiddle with contacts anymore. Whatever the reason might be, you may be a bit hesitant about taking the plunge, especially if you’re thinking about the upfront cost. However, turning to our board-certified, New York ophthalmologist, Dr. Christopher Coad for LASIK could actually save you money in the long run! As a leader in laser vision correction, Dr. Coad is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.) and affiliated with the renowned medical center, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York City. We offer patients the entire spectrum of vision correction technology and highly personalized care. We continue to care for your eyes long after vision correction treatment is complete. Read on to find out how LASIK can help you put more money into the piggy bank and not into more glasses and contact lenses!

Save Money with LASIK

While the cost of LASIK may seem like a lot, once you get LASIK you may never need to worry about getting contacts or glasses again! Contact lens wearers in particular can save quite a bit over the years by getting LASIK. Think about how much you spend on your contact lens supply or how much it costs to get prescription eyewear. Or what about those regular doctor visits for glasses prescriptions or to get new contact lens fittings? It all adds up quickly! Once you get LASIK, you won’t have to worry about all these expenses, which can really add up every year.

Save Time, Too

Along with money, getting LASIK can also save you time. Think about all those times you had to go hunting for your glasses because you weren’t sure where you placed them or you had to remove your contacts because there was something on them. Your time is just as valuable and your money! LASIK can help you make sure that you are never left dealing with uncomfortable contacts or having to find where you put your glasses.

Good Candidates for LASIK

If you believe that LASIK is a good investment for you then the next step is to schedule a consultation at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology to see if you are an ideal candidate for treatment. LASIK can be a great option for adults who are nearsighted, farsighted or dealing with astigmatism and whose prescription has stayed the same for at least one year.

Covering the Cost of LASIK

If you have a health savings account (HSA/FSA) this can also help you save on LASIK. If you have an HSA account, we would be happy to discuss how you could use those funds towards LASIK. If you are still concerned about your finances, ask us about our interest-free financing and how it could help make LASIK more affordable for you.

Testimonials

  • "Cannot recommend Dr Coad & his lasik coordinator Nicole enough. They are wonderfully supportive and gentle that even if you are nervous it will be difficult to stay that way around this supportive duo! Without a doubt recommend going to see them, they are worth the additional care and cost for a full-service experience that are there just to help you & give you the best vision possible. Thank you Dr Coad & Nicole."

  • "Dr. Coad and his staff made the experience of having a cataract removed the best it could possibly be, from evaluation to discussing options to being reassuring when the surgery began, to follow-up. The evaluation process was efficient, yet at no time did I feel as if it was anything but personal. His staff at all times were both professional and welcoming. Vace, the surgical coordinator, did everything to make sure the surgical process went smoothly.
    As to Dr. Coad himself, I can't say enough. His skill is absolutely top-notch, but it was the concern that he took in making sure that I understood all of my options, and his reassuring manner before, during and after the surgery which makes it easy to recommend him to the fullest to anyone who needs ophthalmic care."

  • "Had a five star experience at Chelsea Eye! I went to Dr Yoon for an eye exam and she was extremely friendly, helpful and down to earth! I have met all the staff and they are very friendly and easy to talk to. Hugo in particular was wonderful to work with during the exam. It was a breathe of fresh air coming to this practice and I highly recommend going here for an Optometry appointment or Opthalmology appointment with Dr Coad."

  • "Can I please take a moment and talk about how awesome Dr. Jay Yoon is?!

    I would be friends with this woman! I went in freaked out about a blood vessel on my eye and in total hypochondriac mode (is it a stroke? Is this connected to my brain? Is it gonna spread?). She laughed and calmly said "looks like you've always had this and it's fine and here are some drops cause your eyes are dry and here's my great primary doctor who I recommend since you don't have one."

    She was very funny and relatable and cool - she didn't try to rush me away and she was honest about everything too and so helpful.

    I've already started recommending her and now I'll do it on here: book an appt and be treated so warmly."

  • "Dr Coad and Nicole were both absolutely wonderful. After my brother had LASIK surgery, I decided to go ahead and do the same.

    Both Nicole and Dr. Coad are very proficient in their work. They answered any and all questions that I had, and calmed every nervous feeling that arose from the start, up until the surgery.

    Going through the surgery I was EXTREMELY nervous and Dr. Coad walked me through the entire procedure (before and during) and made my whole LASIK experience a breeze.

    I can not recommend them enough. If you are interested in LASIK Dr. Coad is the only doctor I would trust."

  • "This team is the absolute best. Christine is a gift from the gods and makes you feel comfortable supported and amazing. She really got me through my anxieties about my recent lasik surgery - which went great! Dr Coad is the best. A fantastic team, a simple process - I highly recommend this team - if you've ever considered lasik (like I have for the last 20 years) make an appt with this great group. You'll be happy you did."
