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.
