Your health should always be your top priority, regardless of your financial situation. At Eye LASIK Austin, we firmly believe that everyone deserves to have great vision and we’ve worked hard to offer a wide variety of payment options that are guaranteed to fit any budget. Whether you’re a student, just getting your family started, or trying to get ahead in life, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether you’re seeing things properly.

Although LASIK can seem expensive at first, if you think that a lifetime of glasses and contacts is going to be cheaper, then you need to crunch the numbers. When you add up the cost of replacing your glasses and contacts on a regular basis over your lifetime, LASIK comes out on top in terms of affordability, comfort, and overall quality of life.

Years of contacts and glasses can add up to thousands and thousands of dollars after just a couple of decades – and that’s assuming you don’t lose either of those and have to buy more outside of your regular schedule! What a headache. With LASIK, you get your procedure done once and then never have to worry about it again – it’ll be like you never had vision problems to begin with! That experience is well worth the price of admission.

So, are you thinking about LASIK, but still intimidated by the cost? Take a look at our wide range of financing options that make paying for LASIK as painless as the procedure itself:


Our CareCredit option lets you pay off your procedure with an affordable and flexible monthly payment plan that will fit your lifestyle (and your bank account). Applications for CareCredit can be completed online and you’ll know whether you qualify or not in a matter of seconds!

  • 24 Month Plan: Low minimum monthly payments with no interest if the cost of your procedure is paid off within an arranged amount of time.
  • 48 Month Plan: Monthly payments starting at $25 for a $1,000 total!

If you’re on a student budget, the CareCredit program can be a fantastic way to fit your LASIK payments into your budget. Students have enough to worry about – with CareCredit, you can stay focused on your studies with the peace of mind that your LASIK payments are taken care of.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Most employers offer their employees access to a Flexible Spending Account to bring down their overall healthcare costs. Check with your manager or Human Resources department to see if you qualify for a Flexible Spending Account.

Discounts For Teachers And First Responders

Teachers and first responders dedicate their lives to serving our community, so we’re proud to offer them a discount on their LASIK procedures to help them do their jobs with greater ease. If you’re a teacher or first responder, contact us to learn more.
