Payment Options and Financing


We are dedicated to staying at the forefront of vision correction. We focus on the latest advancements in laser, contact lens, diagnostic, and modern implant technology. Our vision correction pricing and Lasik costs reflects the value of our advanced technology, techniques, experience, expertise, and outcomes. We believe that a better life through improved vision is worth investing in and we are constantly investing in the newest technology to provide the best results. We provide a first class experience, personalized treatment, comprehensive post-operative care, including medications and milestone assurance, ensuring peace of mind during your vision correction journey. Comparing the long-term costs of glasses and contact lenses with the one-time cost of a vision correction procedure often reveals the procedure as the more economical option. We offer diverse payment and financing options to make care accessible.

Our goal is to make vision correction accessible and affordable. We offer a variety of payment options to accommodate different budgets, ensuring financial considerations do not hinder your access to quality care.

Health, Vision and Lasik Insurance

It is of utmost importance to us that you receive personalized advanced vision correction treatment tailored for your specific needs. Our cutting edge technology and techniques are beyond the standard basic techniques that are covered by insurance. Additionally, elective surgeries are not covered by health or vision insurance. To achieve the outcomes we expect for our patients, we ensure that third-party providers have no impact on our treatment decisions, and therefore are not in network with most commercial insurance providers. Though we are out of network with all commercial insurances, our surgeons do accept certain Medicare plans. In many instances a portion of your procedure, such as ambulatory surgical center facility costs, can be covered by your insurance. We advise checking with your insurance provider to understand your coverage and prepare for any out-of-pocket responsibilities. We will provide you with all codes, receipts, and a letter of medical necessity so you can submit the expenses to your insurance. Please contact us to discuss your specific coverage with one of our financial counselors.

How to Proceed with Evaluation and Treatment

Step 1: Complimentary Evaluation

During this visit, we will perform testing to determine if you are a good candidate and start to determine which procedure is best for you. We will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of surgery in your individual case. You will see one of our doctors to review the findings with you. Patients are requested to bring along their current and old glasses, contact lenses, and prescriptions.

Step 2: LASIK Measurements & Examination

If you are a candidate, the next step is to complete your full examination and measurements. If you have a busy schedule, we try to reserve time so you can complete this on the day of your complimentary evaluation, or we can schedule a day at your convenience. During this visit, extensive optical testing and a complete examination are performed. This includes a battery of specialized measurements, computerized mapping of your cornea, corneal biomechanical analysis, and wavefront testing. The pre-operative evaluation typically lasts two to three hours. Since your eyes will be dilated with drops which may make your vision blurry, please make necessary arrangements for transportation.

After LASIK measurements and examination, your procedure can be scheduled. We always reserve time during the week of your measurements or the week after so you can have your treatment done at your convenience. Remember, if you wear soft contact lenses, you will need to discontinue them at least one week before your procedure. For hard contact lenses, discontinue them at least two weeks before your procedure.

Before the Procedure

You should allow approximately three hours on the day of your treatment and arrange for someone to drive you home. Please follow any directions which we have given you regarding your preoperative care. Remember to leave your contact lenses out as discussed above.

The Day of Your Treatment

Please do not wear eye or face makeup on the day of the procedure. When you arrive at CLEI, drops will be placed in your eye. All LASIK and PRK/LASEK procedures are performed using topical numbing drops.

After Treatment

After your procedure, a clear protective shield or goggles (for LASIK) or contact lens bandage (for LASEK/PRK) will be placed over the operative eye. LASIK patients are generally quite comfortable but may have a dry eye or scratchy sensation for several hours. There may be some discomfort for the first 24 to 72 hours after LASIK/PRK. You will be given medications and drops to minimize any discomfort. Most patients can return to work within a day or two depending on their occupation. We will see you for follow up exams the day after your procedure (generally, a short visit) and 1 month later (a longer visit during which a number of examinations are done). Some patients may require additional visits. Please remember that these visits and the post-operative medications are very important to the long-term success of your treatment. Restrictions after treatment include (1) no eye makeup for 3 days, (2) no swimming for 2 weeks, and (3) no eye rubbing for 2 weeks. We also suggest using sports goggles for contact or ball sports for 1 month after the procedure.
