The above figure is an estimate, based on your age and type of contacts, of what you will spend over your lifetime for your contacts.
*Your personal cost will vary. This estimate is provided for comparison to an average LASIK cost of $2100-$2250 per eye
When it comes to paying for LASIK, many people look short-term and decide that the more cost-effective choice is to stick with contact lenses and glasses.
Interestingly, although it may seem that a few hundred dollars here and there each year doesn’t add up to much, the truth is the real cost of contact lenses and glasses far exceeds that of LASIK.
The cost of your eye surgery will look different when you look more closely at how much you’re currently paying for your glasses or contacts. You’ll be amazed that in a few short years, you can pay off your procedure by saving on expenses you probably don’t even think about!
Laser eye surgery patients enjoy some non-monetary benefits, too. They may be able to lie down to read or watch TV without eye glasses poking their faces, buy more fashionable sunglasses, go to bed without removing contacts, and wake up any time of morning and read the alarm clock and shampoo bottle.
