Financing LASIK Surgery

Affordable LASIK surgery is available in San Antonio. Thanks to the advancements in technology and techniques, the cost of LASIK has decreased over the years. It is now affordable on almost any budget.

Furthermore, low cost monthly payment plans are available. You can have LASIK today, and pay for it tomorrow. We have partnered with two financing institutions to give you even more choices.

  • The Wells Fargo Health Advantage Credit Card. This revolving line of credit can be used over and over again.
  • Care Credit is a medical financing company that offers excellent benefits, including no prepayment penalty and 0 percent interest for 12 Months.

You can pay for LASIK with cash, check, and most major credit cards. Additionally, you can combine these methods with our financing options to suit your needs.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Many employers sponsor a government plan that allows you to set aside tax-free money for eligible health services, including LASIK. Since these dollars are deducted from gross salary before taxes, you can reduce your tax burden as you pay for your surgery.

Many patients take advantage of Flexible Savings Accounts to afford LASIK surgery as well as to pay for other healthcare services. Speak to your HR coordinator to determine your benefits and dates of eligibility.

Health Savings Accounts

Known as HSAs, these are tax-free savings accounts that you can use for health services with no deadlines. As of this date you are only eligible to sign up for an HSA if you have a high deductible insurance plan.
