What do other customers pay for LASIK in North America

The cost of laser vision correction has steadily risen in recent years due to increased use of more safer and advanced LASIK lasers like Wavefront-Guided technology (True Custom LASIK, and the BladeFree Intralase laser to create the corneal flap (IntraLASIK) instead of steel blades. In 2002, a leading industry survey (Marketscope) revealed an average price of around $1550 per eye, and by late 2005, the average price had risen to just over $1950 (all types of LASIK: bladed and blade-free). Please note that these are not Bense Vision’s prices.

About misleading LASIK prices

Laser Vision Correction (like LASIK and PRK) pricing can be confusing. Many facilities create this confusion with misleading or non-transparent advertisements, tiered fees based on prescription strength, add-ons for Lifetime Warranty, and extras for Custom LASIK, follow-up care and retreatments (if needed). If a facility requires you to attend a consultation before they will tell you the real fee, you should consider it a red flag.

A recent story on CBC Marketplace investigates a large Canadian franchised LASIK operation, with offices in St. John’s as well. Erica Johnson reports that only ~1% may get the low advertised fees.
