How Much Does Laser Eye Surgery Cost in Australia?
It is a lot more affordable than you might think!
One of the main reasons people don’t proceed with laser eye treatment is COST! You might have thought about getting rid of your glasses and/or contact lenses a thousand times. Every time you go on holiday, get an eye infection, go swimming, break or lose a pair of glasses, have to pay for new contact lens prescription or glasses and the list goes on. Rather than look into it, we just decide it’s too expensive and settle for whatever method we are currently using.
The average cost of laser eye treatment in WA, Australia is $6800 to $8000 for both eyes. This price is for the newest third generation SMILE laser eye treatment. A lot of clinics offer interest free finance between 6 months and 2 years to save you paying out thousands in one go. This allows the procedure to be much more affordable and achievable. That’s as little as $65 per week!
Check for Hidden Procedure Costs
When enquiring about the cost of laser eye treatment, it’s important to know that some clinics will only quote you the surgeons fee and not the hospital fee. This may lead you to believe that their’s is the most reasonable price you’ve found; but once you attend your consultation and start the process of arranging your procedure, the price can really mount up.
Ask the Following Questions When making Price Enquiries
1.Can I please have a quote for SMILE/LASIK surgery per eye?
2. Is that price inclusive of all hospital fees?
3. Does the quote include my aftercare appointments?
4. Does that include my post-operative eye drops?
5. Is there a cost for future enhancements should I require one?
