Useful LASIK Surgery Statistics

LASIK surgery statistics can prove to be an excellent source of information for patients who are considering the procedure. This is because statistical data can be used to support the patient's decision to undergo the procedure. Some of the LASIK surgery statistics a prospective patient may find useful include:

  • LASIK surgery was performed on approximately 1.3 million Americans in 2005
  • LASIK surgery takes approximately 10-15 minutes for both eyes
  • Custom, wavefront-guided procedures accounted for approximately 50 percent of all LASIK procedures performed in the United States in 2005
  • Bladeless, all-laser procedures accounted for approximately 25 percent of all LASIK procedures performed in the United States in 2005
  • In 2005, the average cost of LASIK surgery ranged from $2,200 to $2,400

Before committing to undergo a LASIK procedure, prospective patients should take the time to thoroughly research the LASIK surgery statistics which are most important to them specifically. Your eye surgeon may be able to provide a great deal of worthwhile statistical information but it is also important to do independent research on the subject, as well as relying on your surgeon to provide this type of data.
