Paying for Care
For many people, LASIK is one of the most life-changing decisions they’ll ever make. Finances alone should not be an obstacle to obtaining the lifestyle that laser vision correction offers. Our goal is to make vision correction affordable for any budget. What we pledge to deliver is value to our patients. At Eye LASIK Austin, we know that price is an important factor. However, the surgeries that we perform here will determine your lifelong vision so our highest priority is using the best in technology and experience. We are not the lowest priced center in Austin. Low priced centers use inexperienced surgeons and outdated equipment to keep the costs lower. We combine Austin’s most experienced surgical team with the absolute latest in technology at a lower price than other centers with the same level in technology. This is the highest value for your hard earned dollars.
All Vision Service Plan members are eligible for a discount with your VSP. For those of you with an upgraded plan through your employer, you may also be eligible for an additional $1000 per eye insurance benefit! Eye LASIK Austin is one of only two VSP approved centers in Austin. Contact us to find out more today at (512) 346-3937.

Flexible Spending Accounts/Healthcare Savings Accounts
Around 90 percent of employees work for companies who offer a Flexible Spending Account (FSA, FLEX Account, HSA) to help lower net healthcare costs. HSAs/FSAs allow you to use pre-taxed income on medical expenses including deductibles, co-payments and medical expenses not normally covered by medical insurance like eyeglasses, refractive surgery, even aspirin and bandages. Using an HSA/FSA to pay for Laser Eye Surgery could save you significant money. Check with your benefits manager at work to find out if Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Spending Accounts are offered by your company.
When using your FSA/FLEX Account/HSA for surgery, please note that as a surgery facility our credit card terminals are coded as “medical” and not “vision”. It is important to check with your benefits office to determine the best way to complete the transaction for your specific plan.
Payment in Full
Payment is due on the day of your procedure and can be paid by cash, cashier’s check, money order or credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Discover).
Tax Deduction Benefit
If you itemize your tax return, LASIK can be tax deductible. Check with your tax expert for details.
Fees are all-inclusive covering your initial consultation, LASIK measurements, your procedure and all post-operative care for up to one year. Enhancement procedures (if needed) are provided at no charge for a period two years following your initial treatment for all eligible patients.
