If you want better vision, the team at Dakota Eye Institute doesn't want cost to stand in your way. LASIK vision correction is not typically covered by insurance because it is considered an elective procedure; however, we have several recommendations to help make this an attainable goal for your budget:
We offer 0% financing through Care Credit If you qualify, you can have your LASIK procedure with no money down and pay for it over time.
If you have access to a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, you may be able to set aside pre-tax earnings to save for LASIK and ultimately end up spending less on the overall cost. There are restrictions with these plans regarding the timeframe when the money must be used, so make sure you know all of the specific rules of your plan before enrolling. It is also advised to have a free LASIK Consultation with us prior to enrolling to ensure your eyes are right for the procedure and you know how much it will cost. You don't want to under- or over-save and end up losing money.
Applying your tax refund toward LASIK can be a smart use of this "found" money. Rather than spending it on vacations, electronics or shopping sprees, you will be putting that money toward improving your quality of life through vision correction.
At Dakota Eye Institute we accept the following credit cards for LASIK:
