Your Best Vision Is Within Reach
Quality of care and the best possible vision outcome are top priorities when considering eye surgery. We encourage you to research your options and decide for yourself if customized vision correction is right for you.
Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region is committed to providing an unmatched patient experience beginning with a state-of-the-art, in-depth ocular exam followed by a detailed discussion of your lifestyle, occupational requirements, goals, and expectations. Taking these factors into consideration, we recommend the treatment option we believe to be best suited to meet your personal vision goals. This may be LASIK, PRK, ICL implantation, refractive lens exchange (RLE) or other refractive solutions.
OCCR is the only provider in the Capital Region offering a full range of refractive vision solutions. Our focus in on quality. Our ophthalmologists use the newest technology, and the availability of LASIK alternatives best suited to provide you with a satisfactory outcome—such as ICL or refractive lens exchange. As with every other procedure offered by OCCR, we use the same advanced diagnostics, post-operative care, and patient satisfaction guarantees for refractive vision solutions.
When first considering the upfront costs of vision correction procedures, it is important to weigh these numbers against the cost of for example a decade or in some cases a lifetime of annually purchasing new glasses, frames, lenses, contact lenses, cleaning solutions, cases, and lens fittings. Over the course of a lifetime, these “traditional vision correction” approaches can cost multiples more than the cost of a LASIK or PRK procedure.
While LASIK is a significant upfront financial investment, it is estimated that those who undergo LASIK actually save tens of thousands of dollars in their lifetime.
Still, we recognize that an elective procedure must fit within your budget and is a substantial financial investment for most people.
Most insurance companies consider LASIK and other vision correction procedures to be elective and do not cover the cost. However, some insurance plans have laser vision benefits, so it’s worthwhile to consult your insurance company to determine any coverage eligibility.
To cover the costs of LASIK or alternative procedures, we are happy to work with you on utilizing funds from your health savings accounts (HSAs), medical savings accounts (MSAs), or flex spending account (FSA), avenues utilized by many of our patients to reduce the cost of their laser eye surgery. These options allow you to use pre-tax income to pay for medical costs, saving you upwards of 25 to 30 percent on your LASIK eye surgery.
OCCR also accepts CareCredit, our lending agency of choice, which provides monthly payment plan options that fit most budgets including Zero Down Payment and No Interest for 24 Month financing.
Furthermore, uninsured costs for refractive surgery are a deductible medical expense for personal income tax purposes (we advise verifying this with your accountant as your personal employment set up may negate this general truism).
