Cost of LASEK Surgery in Colorado Getting Your LASEK Surgery

If you have are near-sighted, far-sighted, or have an astigmatism, you have no doubt heard about LASIK surgery. However, there is now a newer type of laser correction eye surgery called LASEK, which stands for laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis. LASEK surgery combines the great benefits from two different kinds of laser eye surgeries: LASIK and PRK. The way it works is that the eye surgeon reshapes the cornea by using an excimer laser. When the cornea is reshaped by the laser, it corrects the vision problem. The difference between LASEK and LASIK is that there is no flap created on the eye that needs to be healed and the difference between LASEK and PRK surgery is that the cornea is not removed and discarded.

Now that you have a pretty good idea of what LASEK eye surgery is, let's take a little look at the cost. Depending on where you live and the doctor doing the surgery, LASEK surgery can cost about the same as it does to get LASIK, which is a little over $2,000 per eye. That is not bad considering all of the benefits you can get from having LASEK surgery done. However, it needs to be pointed out that LASEK surgery is considered to be elective as none of the conditions it corrects are life-threatening. That means you will have to pay all of the cost of having the LASEK surgery done. And that can be too much for a lot of people.

If you need help paying for your LASEK surgery, you have some options. There are financing programs like Care Credit that you can use especially for procedures like LASEK. You can also take out a loan from a bank, which is the better option since it will likely have a lower interest rate than something like Care Credit, which is essentially a health-related credit card.

Before deciding if LASEK eye surgery is the right choice for you, you need to consider a few things. First of all, there is the cost. If you do not have a lot of expendable income, cost is the most important thing to look at. You have to consider if getting the surgery is worth the amount of debt it will put you into. Then you also have to look at the eye surgeons who do LASEK surgery in your area. You want to find a qualified surgeon who has plenty of experience performing the procedure so you are less likely to have complications.
