Cost of LASEK Surgery in New York How You Can Pay for LASEK in New York

There have been many advances in eye vision correction surgeries in the past decade or two. One of those advances is called LASEK surgery. LASEK is when the eye surgeon uses a laser to create a thin flap in the cornea so they can dissolve some of the tissue with alcohol and then reshape the cornea in order to correct the vision. It sounds a little like LASIK, but it is slightly different because LASEK does not require the eye to actually be cut or scraped during the surgery. LASEK is done on those patients in New York who have astigmatism or are farsighted or nearsighted.

Since LASEK is not necessary for health reasons, insurance will not pay for any of the costs associated with it. This means that the patient has to cover every single bit of it before they can have the LASEK surgery performed. The average cost for LASEK surgery in New York is between $2,000 and $5,000 per eye. Since you want to get both eyes done, that makes your procedure bill very high anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000 when everything is all said and done.

Looking at that figure, it is easy to guess that not many people can afford to pay that amount in one lump sum. One way it can be done is if the patient waits for a year or more and saves every penny they can and put it towards getting LASEK surgery. This method will take longer for some than it will for others. You just have to look at your own finances and figure out how much you can put towards getting LASEK every month or even if you can save up the money for the procedure.

There are options for those who do not want to wait or can't save up for LASEK. One avenue to take is to go to a bank and take out a personal loan. If you have good credit and a job, then you can likely get a loan to cover the entire cost of the LASEK surgical procedure. If you do not have stellar credit, you can get a co-signer. Another option is to apply for a financing program just for medical related procedures. One such program is called Care Credit. Just about anyone can get approved for a certain amount, as long as they have steady monthly income. It may not cover all of the cost, but it will help out tremendously and make it easier for you to get LASEK.
