Cost of LASEK Surgery in Illinois

You've probably heard of LASIK eye surgery, but you may not be as familiar with the option of LASEK. The two procedures are very similar, but there are some differences that may make you better suited to LASEK than LASIK. In both types of surgery, the top layer of the cornea is pulled back. A laser is the applied to the eye to gently reshape it, thus correcting your vision. The difference between LASIK and LASEK is the layer that is pulled back from the eye. With LASEK surgery, only the very uppermost layer is pulled back. This is an ideal option for patients with a thin cornea.

LASEK is a simple outpatient procedure so the cost of LASEK surgery in Illinois will not include any kind of long term hospital stay. You will need to have someone drive you home after the procedure, but you should be able to resume all your normal activities shortly thereafter. Small changes in your routine are necessary in the first few weeks, such as keeping water out of your eyes when you shower and wearing an eye shield to bed so you do not rub your eyes inadvertently while you are sleeping. You will usually have a follow up at one day, one week, three weeks, and six weeks.

LASEK is considered to be an elective procedure by most insurance companies so you may be paying for the cost of LASEK surgery in Illinois out of pocket. The costs that you need to consider include both preoperative and postoperative visits, the surgeon's fee, the cost to use the facility, the cost of anesthesia, and the price of eye drops and other equipment needed for postsurgical care. Some locations will include all of these costs in your price quote. Make sure you understand exactly what you're being quoted and remember costs are usually given per eye.

The cost of LASEK surgery in Illinois is about $2,150 per eye. This can vary greatly depending upon the patient's individual needs. When you're comparing different providers, keep in mind that the lowest price isn't always best. Surgeons who are less experienced may have a lower price, but they won't always have the skill to do the job as well as a higher priced doctor. Many eye care centers offer financing for LASEK surgery that will make this procedure much easier to pay for. At your initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss financing options as well as the exact cost with your preferred provider.
