Why does the price for lasik seem so variable?
It can get confusing as many factors impact the cost for lasik: the reputation and experience fo the surgeon, quality of care, technology, the type of vision correction, and where you live geographically. The cost for lasik can range anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 per eye. For blade-free all-laser lasik, the price will be closer to $2,500 per eye, whereas the average cost for Bladed (traditional) Lasik is around $1,600 per eye.
What’s the difference between traditional Lasik and All-Laser Lasik?
The only difference is in the way the cornea flap is created. All-Laser is bladeless, and uses a laser to create the flap whereas traditional Lasik uses a microkeratone. The benefit of All-Laser Lasik is more precise cornea flaps and a reduced risk of experiencing dry eyes after the operation.
