Cost of LASEK Surgery in Kansas Finding Out How to Pay for LASEK

These days everyone has heard about LASEK eye surgery. It is very popular even in Kansas, where there are a lot of eye surgeons in practice. Just because you have heard of it, does not mean that you really know what it is. I mean, sure, you likely get the basics of the procedure: it helps people who used to require glasses or contacts see well without them. It is a surgical procedure that is done with a laser. LASEK eye surgery helps to correct astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia. The short answer to how the procedure is performed is that a flap is created in the eye with a metal blade and a laser. Then the surgeon uses the laser to remodel the corneal stroma of the eye. After that is finished, the surgeon folds the flap back down and it naturally adheres to the area for healing.

When it comes to paying for the cost of LASEK surgery in Kansas, the idea can be overwhelming especially without any insurance. Some vision plans do not even cover this type of eye surgery since it is not medically necessary. So, you need to be sure that your vision plan covers the procedure or you will find yourself paying for the whole thing yourself. If that happens, you can count on spending at least $1,000 and it could be as high as $5,000, depending on the type of procedure and where you live.

After you have the procedure done, your post-operative care is very important. Your doctor will give you anti-inflammatory eye drops and antibiotic eye drops to help with the pain in the eye and also to keep infection away. One thing you do not want to happen is to get an eye infection after LASEK surgery. Talk about painful and dangerous to the eye. It is also important not to rub your eyes and to wear the eye mask that the doctor gives you so that your eye(s) heal well.

One thing to keep in mind is that LASEK eye surgery does not always turn out well for some people. Hopefully your doctor will explain the statistics to you so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not to go through with the surgical procedure. It would really stink to have to pay for the surgery and then not get any good benefits from it at all. So go into it with your eyes wide open (pardon the pun).
