Cost of LASEK Surgery in Arizona

LASEK is a type of surgery that is performed to fix problems in a personís vision. These problems include nearsightedness, farsightedness as well as astigmatism. The cornea is reshaped during this procedure to allow better vision to occur. A very thin layer of the cornea is taken off, while the laser reshapes the cornea. The layer is replaced after the cornea is shaped properly. This is very similar to LASIK surgery, except in LASIK surgery the thin layer is not put back after reshaping the cornea. In Arizona, the cost of LASEK surgery can vary according to many issues. Each doctor charges different rates, and location where the surgery takes place can increase the price.

These factors can cause the price of this surgery to vary, but the average cost is in the range of $2,150 per eye. LASEK surgery is not usually covered under insurance plans, because it is an elective surgery. Most doctors and eye surgery centers offer payment plans that can help with the cost of this surgery. LASEK surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in a surgery center or hospital. The whole procedure takes only 15 minutes for each eye.

LASEK takes longer for the eyes to heal than is the case with other eye surgeries, but the results can be better than other laser eye surgeries for someone who is a good candidate. Not everyone is a candidate for this type of laser eye correction, and it is best for each patient to check with their eye doctor to decide if this is the right surgery for them. A local anesthetic is given to the patient in the form of eye drops right before the surgery takes place. This numbs the eye and surrounding area. Some doctors can prescribe a mild sedative for patients who feel anxious about the procedure. This can be given before the surgery as well. General anesthetic is not normally given for this type of procedure.

The cost of LASEK surgery in Arizona typically includes pre and post-operative doctor visits. Seeing the eye doctor before surgery is an important part of the process. It is during this time that the doctor will determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for LASEK surgery. The doctor will go over what to expect and prepare the person for surgery. Following the surgery the doctor will want to see the patient to check on the healing process and any discomfort.
