The-Lasik-Directory.com Tip: Although LASIK cost should not be a primary factor in selecting a well- qualified LASIK surgeon, once a surgeon is selected the cost becomes an issue as the patient must determine whether or not he is financially able to undergo the procedure. However, evaluating LASIK cost can be somewhat tricky, especially if it is not immediately clear what is included in the cost quoted by the surgeon.
LASIK surgery should include a series of both pre-operative and post-operative visits. Some surgeons may include the cost of these visits in the price of the surgery, while other surgeons may not include the cost of these visits. This can have a significant impact on the overall cost of the procedure.
Another factor to consider when evaluating LASIK cost is the costs associated with follow up procedures or emergency appointments. Before selecting a surgeon, it is important to discuss potential problems, as well as the costs which will be associated with these potential problems. Ideally, the patient will not require additional procedures or emergency care, but in the event this type of care is required, it is important to fully understand the price implications of these situations.
