Cost of LASIK

In Dallas Fort Worth

If you’re considering LASIK, you’re probably thinking about benefits like the freedom that comes with being able to get up and go without worrying about glasses or contacts. You’re probably also thinking about the cost of LASIK and wondering whether you can afford laser vision correction.

We know that educating our Dallas and Ft. Worth patients about the cost of LASIK is the best way to show them how they, too, can fit premium vision correction into their budgets.

How Much Does LASIK Cost?

At Alliance Vision Institute, we customize every vision correction procedure to fit our patients’ individual needs, which affects how much their LASIK eye surgery will cost. During your consultation, you will be given a detailed cost breakdown and will never be surprised by extra charges, or hidden fees.

Our LASIK consultations are FREE, and our LASIK price includes everything: preoperative exams and counseling, the procedure itself, and all of the postoperative care our patients need (including prescription eye drops).

At Alliance Vision Institute, what you see is what you get. And what you get is clear, crisp vision.

Is LASIK Covered By Insurance?

LASIK is considered an elective (not medically necessary) procedure, which means that it’s not covered by most of our patients’ insurance plans. Fortunately, at Alliance Vision Institute we offer a number of options to help our patients fit LASIK into their budgets.

Can I Afford LASIK?

It’s normal for patients to wonder whether they can fit the cost of LASIK into their budgets. What many of our patients don’t realize, though, is that over the long term LASIK can actually be more affordable than glasses and contacts. When you think about LASIK this way, the question really is, “Can I afford not to have LASIK?”

Did you know that the average person spends at least $6,000 on traditional vision expenses over the course of ten years? And that’s only the financial ramifications of glasses and contacts: it doesn’t account for the inconvenience of repairing or replacing broken glasses, keeping up with a supply of contact lenses, or the need to schedule yearly vision exams to make sure their prescription is up-to-date.

LASIK Financing Options

Alphaeon Credit Card

Alphaeon offers a credit card that makes it easy for our patients to pay for LASIK and other ophthalmology expenses.


CareCredit is a leading medical lender, and offers a number of convenient payment plans for our patients.

Can I Use My HSA or FSA For LASIK?

Yes. Even if LASIK is not covered by your insurance plan, you can still use tax-advantaged funds from your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to cover the cost of LASIK. The best way to learn more about this option is to get in touch with your insurance policy administrator.

LASIK Cost Comparisons

When they pay for LASIK, our patients are investing in their visual freedom. Many of our patients feel that the cost of LASIK is well worthwhile in light of the benefits they enjoy. But it’s also helpful to look at the cost of LASIK in comparison to other regular expenses our patient’s don’t think twice about. For example, did you know that over the course of two years, our patients’ LASIK costs are about the same as:
