How Much Does It Cost To Have PRK Eye Surgery
The cost of PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) depends on a few factors. For example, if you hold a complete vision insurance policy, your surgery should be covered. In this post, we’ll answer questions about PRK surgery, including financial considerations and payment options.
The cost of PRK eye surgery
At Dello Russo Laser Vision, PRK surgery will not break the bank. We offer special discounts for first responders.
Of course, it goes without saying that appointments to check on your vision progress after the surgery are free, too.
If paying the full cost is a daunting prospect, don’t worry, you have options available. Let’s take a look at those now.
Note that PRK is typically cheaper than LASIK.
Dello Russo Laser Vision offers several payment plans which can help you with financing the cost of PRK surgery. We have dedicated financial specialists who are on-hand to discuss the particulars of your care.
Before paying for your PRK, have a chat with your insurance provider. Many companies have programs available which allow you to defer all or part of the cost of PRK. We work with many general health and vision insurance providers so there’s a good chance this option is open to you.
Company managed flexible spending accounts
Flexible spending accounts are schemes set up by some employers. As you work, you can pay set amounts into the account. Using funds from a flexible spending account may save on both fees and taxes.
If you’re planning a PRK surgery for a future date, find out if this option is open to you. It’s often worth the wait in terms of your financial savings.
