How Much Does Custom ASA Cost?Monday, September 28th, 2015, 5:04 pm
Your eyesight is precious, and the cost of laser vision correction should never be your primary concern when considering this procedure. However, at Dell Laser Consultants we understand price will likely be a factor in your decision. To help you plan for custom Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA), we have provided a general resource on the fees typically associated with this technique. Dr. Steven J. Dell and Dr. Divya M. Varu, our experienced ophthalmologist, can help you determine if this or another vision correction method may be right for you.
Many people believe that custom ASA will be less expensive than custom LASIK. LASIK utilizes two lasers to complete the procedure (one to create the flap and a second to reshape the cornea to enhance eyesight) while custom ASA, also called PRK, only employs one. However, there are more follow-up appointments needed with custom ASA than LASIK, which typically eliminates any difference in total cost. Keep in mind, you should select the procedure that will provide optimal results based on your needs and goals and not necessarily the price.
The cost of custom ASA will depend on several factors, including the surgeon’s fee, the technology used, and your unique treatment plan. In most cases, the price will range anywhere from about $2600 to $3600 per eye. Dr. Dell or Dr. Varu will take the time to explain the cost of your procedure and clarify any questions or concerns you may have before the surgery. At Dell Laser Consultants, we accept cash, checks, and major credit cards. If you would prefer flexible financing options, we work with CareCredit™, a reputable healthcare lending agency that offers low and no-interest payment plans to qualified applicants. Additionally, we accept flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Check with your employer to see if this option is available to you.
