LASEK Surgery in Florida - The Average Cost of LASEK Surgery in Florida

No, we didn't misspell LASIK. LASEK is actually a variation of the LASIK procedure. In the traditional procedure LASIK, the surgeon uses an incision to make a flap of the outer surface of the eye, and then utilizes lasers to shape the surface underneath in order to improve vision. This flap is relatively thick, so people with thin corneas were unable to improve their vision with LASIK. LASEK technology creates a much thinner flap of epithelial cells. An alcohol solution is introduced to separate them from the eye surface below and suspend them (floating) while the lasers reshape the eye surface for improved vision.

LASEK is one of several forms of laser surgery available in Florida. To have LASEK surgery in Florida, you can go to a national chain, statewide vision surgery centers, or independent eye surgeons. There are many options, especially in metropolitan areas, like Orlando, St. Petersburg, and Miami. An eye doctor will need to help you determine if LASEK surgery is right for you, or if another procedure is a better solution to your vision problems. When considering any laser vision correction surgery, it is wise to research the eye surgeon's credentials, references, and experience levels with the procedure you are thinking of having performed.

The average costs of laser vision correction in Florida are around $1,500 to $3,000 per eye. The type of laser vision correction surgery you choose will determine the costs of your surgery, with basic LASIK being between $1,500 and $1,700. The average cost of LASEK in Florida is approximately $2,000 per eye. These types of surgeries are elective (or not medically necessary), so they are usually not covered by medical insurance. Also, more advanced types of surgeries cost more than a basic vision correction surgery. Widely advertised 'bargain' LASIK procedures are usually a ploy, with additional fees and hidden costs that become apparent on further investigation.

Some people may think that as the technology has matured, the cost of laser vision correction surgeries may have gone down. In fact, the costs of LASIK and related surgeries have risen steadily since the late nineties. However, your financial investment in laser vision correction is minor compared to the value of your eyes. Sacrificing surgeon skill and dependability for a few hundred dollars is not usually the wisest decision, especially when you are entrusting the future of your vision to his or her hands. Doing a little research can save a world of heartache for years to come.
