When you’re considering LASIK, compare the one time cost of LASIK to the recurring costs of glasses or contacts.
Prescription eye glasses cost on average $320 every two years. The cost of contacts is about $300 per year. Add to these prices the costs of doctor visits, prescription sunglasses, and cleaning solutions, and the average person could easily spend up to $500 per year and still have the hassles of contacts or glasses. Over 10 years, this cost would be more than $5,000. On average, that is quite a bit more than having LASIK with Dr. Whitten and enjoying a lifetime of clear vision.
