New Mexico Bladeless LASIK Surgery

Bladeless LASIK surgery is a non-invasive medical procedure that is designed to correct a variety of vision problems. Astigmatisms, nearsightedness and farsightedness are all vision problems that can be corrected with this type of surgery. The basics behind the procedure are relatively simple. The eye surgeon will create a small incision along the cornea of the eye. This incision will create a flap that can be gently lifted up. Once the flap is lifted the eye surgeon will administer gentle, pulsating energy from a laser to reshape the cornea.

This non-invasive surgical procedure is often preferred over other vision correction alternatives, such as eyeglasses, contact lenses and traditional bladed LASIK. The main reason patients choose to have this vision correction surgery performed is because the recovery time is fairly quick. The recovery time of bladeless LASIK surgery, such as the Interlase procedure, is anywhere from four to seven days. Traditional bladed LASIK surgery has a recovery time of approximately two weeks. Another popular reason for choosing this vision correction surgery option over the alternatives is because of the hassle-free nature of it. Patients no longer have to deal with clunky eyeglasses or painful contact lenses once this procedure has been performed.

Individuals who are interested in receiving bladeless LASIK surgery will need to attend a consultation with a local New Mexico eye surgeon. This consultation will allow the eye surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and how extensive the procedure may be. Eye surgeons during the consultation period may require that patients undergo several eye tests to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are considered a good candidate then you may proceed with the surgery.

The average cost of bladeless LASIK surgery in New Mexico is approximately $1,700-$2,100 per eye. This cost includes the actual procedure and any follow-up care that patient may need to receive. It is important to remember that most medical insurance companies will not cover the cost of bladeless LASIK surgery. Medical insurance companies consider bladeless LASIK surgery to be an elective surgery and therefore will not cover it. Some vision centers may try to work with an insurance company to get some items covered such as medical supplies, anesthesiologist fees and the consultation covered, but the majority of the cost of the procedure will need to be covered by the patient. Most vision centers are willing to work with patients to help them find financing for this type of procedure.
