LASIK eye surgery is a safe, effective solution that corrects refractive errors by using lasers to reshape the cornea – thus decreasing or even eliminating dependence on glasses or contacts. Although typically considered elective procedures not covered by insurance plans, first responders can qualify for discounts through certain providers.
Recent years have witnessed a drop in LASIK procedures, and some providers blame this decline on an economic downturn or consumer confidence issues. But price cuts alone have not been driving patient demand for refractive surgery – instead it has been inaccurate assumptions regarding what drives patient choice across markets, including refractive surgery.
Consumers have often been confused by the marketing techniques employed to promote LASIK. For instance, LCA-Vision frequently advertised teaser rates that most would not qualify for while also failing to inform call center operators of stringent requirements they must fulfill in order to qualify for these offers.
Wolfe Eye Clinic typically quotes its patients an all-inclusive LASIK fee that covers pre-operation testing and consultation to make sure you are suitable for the procedure. We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express as well as financing through trusted financial providers for those in need of financing solutions.
