A brown-eyed woman with clear visionMany patients in the RGV and beyond have turned to Dr. Raul Peña to enhance their vision. One of the best options for improving the overall clarity of your vision is LASIK. Custom LASIK treats refractive errors and eliminates or reduces your dependence on corrective lenses.

Many patients have questions about the cost of custom LASIK and how they can pay for surgery. Right now we'd like to consider these matters so that you can understand what to expect from laser vision correction.

What is the average cost of custom LASIK?

The cost of custom LASIK surgery can vary to some degree based on a number of factors. Because of this, providing a general price range or even an average cost may not be indicative of the cost of your custom LASIK surgery. For this reason, it's important that you come into the practice for a personal consultation so we can provide a personalized price quote based on your situation and individual needs.

Factors That Determine the Cost of custom LASIK

The following factors will often affect the total cost of the custom LASIK procedure:

  • The geographic location of the practice
  • The expertise of the surgeons at the practice
  • The technology used at the practice
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • Special deals/promotions unique to an individual practice

Will insurance cover the cost of custom LASIK surgery?

Generally, medical insurance will not cover custom LASIK surgery and other refractive procedures. Insurance will only cover LASIK in very rare and specific circumstances, such as cases of injury or deformity in which it is not possible for patients to wear glasses or contact lenses. Be sure to check with your insurance provider about the nature of your coverage.

Will flex spending accounts (FSAs) cover custom LASIK surgery?

Custom LASIK surgery is an approved procedure that is covered by flex spending accounts (FSAs). Be sure to check with your employer to learn more setting up an FSA and how it can benefit you over the course of the year and when you file your income tax.

Financing Plans for LASIK Custom Surgery

Another option to consider for payment is monthly financing. This operates much like a traditional credit card or loan. A trusted third-party lender will cover the total cost of custom LASIK treatment, and the patient will be responsible for paying the lender back on a monthly basis. At Peña Eye Institute we offer 24 month, no interest through Care Credit.

Making the Best Choices for You and Your Needs

As you can see, there are many different payment options to consider for IntraLASIK, and the number of payment methods allows patients to pick the right option for their needs.

During the consultation process, we will be sure to cover all of these matters in full detail so that you can make a choice with which you are comfortable. This allows you to be as well-informed as possible about multiple facets of LASIK surgery.
