When it comes to LASIK surgery, many patients want the lowest cost in the Bay Area, but you should always beware of being “penny wise and pound foolish”.
There are several low cost LASIK providers that cut corners in order to provide bargain prices. However, many patients who have experienced these low cost LASIK centers felt they had to deal with a “bait and switch” mentality, with additional fees being tacked on to the original low rate. These fees matched or exceeded some of the other, more moderately priced LASIK procedures in the Bay Area.
At LaserVue, LASIK surgery is our forte, and we hire the most experienced LASIK practitioners in the Bay Area. Experience, technology, and doing the LASIK surgery correctly is worth its weight in gold.
Generally, LASIK surgery is not an inexpensive procedure. On average, you should expect at least $2000 per eye, if not more, for LASIK surgery in the San Francisco Bay Area. The most experienced surgeons and the best technology generally cost around $2500 per eye or more. If your price is a fraction of this (as are sometimes advertised in various markets), then there is a chance that your surgeon is cutting corners and providing a less safe and less accurate treatment.
