LASIK eye surgery (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) - LASIK involves the use of an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct a patient’s vision error. By having LASIK you can reduce and sometimes eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses.
Before the LASIK surgery starts, topical anesthetic drops are used to numb the eyes to prevent any discomfort. Medication may also be approved to help the patient relax. After the drops are used, a lid speculum is used to keep the eyes from closing and a femtosecond laser creates a thin flap over the cornea. Some corneal tissue is removed using a specialized excimer laser. After the laser treatment the flap is then gently repositioned and eye drops are used to start the healing process.
With so many advertisements about LASIK price we can understand why patients may be confused. How can a Virginia LASIK center offer $299 per eye for LASIK and another charge $3000 per eye? The answer is simple; $299 is a means to attract patients to the office. The criteria for someone to meet in order to qualify for the $299 per eye pricing is probably less than 1% of the population and the cost typically utilizes technology which is now considered out of date. The intention of the $299 price is to capture your attention and draw you in into the office. Typically these LASIK centers will recommend upgrades based on your eye prescription and technology recommended for your vision needs. In a sense these centers often tout “matching the technology to the patient” when in fact they are often matching the patient’s budget to the technology.
