It’s often touted as a 15-minute procedure, so some people wonder why laser eye surgery costs so much.
The diagnostic equipment alone for vision correction costs approximately 500 thousand dollars.
The laser used for the first step of the procedure, called the ZEISS VisuMax laser, costs approximately $1 million. Additionally, there are fees of $400-600 per use per eye.
The cost of an excimer laser (used to reshape the eye in LASIK eye surgery and SmartSurfACE – TransPRK) is another 800 thousand dollars.
It takes about 18 years to become a qualified eye surgeon, and the cost of that expertise is significant.
There are also ongoing costs associated with running a world class eye clinic, like the cost of premises, staff, insurance, and more.
