How Much is LASIK? Let’s Break Down the Average Cost of LASIK Eye Surgery
The average cost of LASIK in the United States is $2,246 per eye1, and there’s a lot to know about why prices can vary regionally and even within a given city like San Antonio. For point of comparison, you may know that the average cost of a college education is about $35,000 per year. College can obviously cost a lot more or a lot less depending on the location, academic reputation, likelihood of landing your dream job, room and board—all things that affect the value of the education.2 Getting LASIK is also an investment in your future at a small fraction of the cost. In fact, you can get LASIK for about the same cost as half a year of just the room and board part of college. Put another way, this is also about the same amount you would otherwise spend on glasses and contacts while working toward a four-year degree.
