The Myth of $299 LASIK
Dr. Jonathan Woolfson
Are you scouring the Internet reading every LASIK article you can find, looking for the best price? Like anyone, you want a good deal. Learn about the Myth of $299 LASIK.
LASIK is an elective procedure, and while it is affordable for most patients who are serious about improving their vision, it’s not exactly cheap. The question is, do you want to shop for the best price, just like you would if you were shopping for a car?
LASIK is not the same wherever you go. While it may be tempting to take advantage of one of the $299 or $499 per eye “deals” you’ve seen floating around the Internet, it might not be the best way to select an eye surgeon.
There’s a reason that you’ve never seen an advertisement like that from Woolfson Eye Institute, and you never will.
How can LASIK providers charge $299 LASIK? It turns out that they actually can’t.
The Satellite TV Advertising Strategy
You’ve seen the $29/month package that various satellite TV providers like to advertise. While it clearly works to get people to call and inquire about their service, most people discover that they’re not going to get that premium package of channels for anywhere even close to $29/month.
$299 LASIK works the same way. An unrealistic picture of the true costs associated with LASIK surgery are presented to coax you into a phone call, that results in someone politely offering you the upsell.
Typically, these low numbers do not include essential LASIK surgery costs, such as your pre-operative exam and consultation, as well as post-surgical follow-up care, and almost assuredly does not include the cost of future retreatments that might be needed.
Your vision is one of your most precious assets, so it’s important to beware when choosing a LASIK provider who thinks it’s acceptable to present deceptive pricing for something so important.
At Woolfson Eye Institute, our price includes your pre-operative evaluation, at least a full year of post-operative care, lubricant eye drops, and for most patients, free “touch-ups” via the Woolfson Lifetime Assurance Plan.
