LASIK vs. Contact Lenses: Cost Savings

LASIK in Los Angeles, Orange County & the Inland Empire

The team at Laser Eye Center is steadfast in our belief that LASIK can enrich your life in countless ways. But as with any big decision, you must ask yourself if you can justify the expense.

If you are on the fence about getting LASIK to eliminate your dependence on contacts, you may want to do a cost analysis of the procedure versus what you currently pay for vision correction.

Cost Analysis

Depending on the type and brand of contacts you wear, you could be paying anywhere from $150 to $1,500 or more per year. The higher your refractive error or the more specialized your contacts are, the more you can expect to pay.

There are other variables to consider. For example, contact cleaning supplies are recurring costs that can add up over time. Also, you must factor in annual visits to an optometrist to keep your prescription up to date. If you have astigmatism or other specialty needs, you may need additional contact lens fittings, too.

Although the one-time cost of LASIK seems high relative to what you would pay for a box of contacts, in the long-term LASIK can save you large amounts of money. Permanently correcting your refractive error liberates you from the expense of contacts, cleaning and maintenance costs. (Not to mention, it gives you freedom from the nuisance and routine of contacts — e.g., regularly ordering new boxes of contacts, cleaning them every night and putting them in first thing in the morning.)

When you look at the big picture, LASIK is a cost-effective option. Over time, you will pay less for LASIK than what you would spend on 30+ years’ worth of contacts and their related expenses.
