LASIK Cost: Making LASIK Affordable
Dr. Arffa works together with the TLC Pittsburgh Eye Center to make LASIK affordable for everyone. We have a variety of ways for you to pay for your procedure.

Many compare the cost of Lasik with the cost of maintaining glasses or contacts over a ten-year period, and the savings speak for themselves. Lasik saves you more money in the long term, yet the convenience you can receive now is priceless. (click here for LASIK costs vs Contacts)

Health Insurance
Almost no medical insurance will cover the cost of LASIK. However, Dr. Arffa and TLC have made arrangements with some health insurance plans that could substantially reduce your cost for laser vision correction. For example if you have DavisVision, or Vision Benefits of America you can be eligible for a significant discount. Click here for a full list of LASIK Advantage Program Partners.

Flexible Spending Accounts
Many employers or insurance providers offer Flexible Spending Accounts, Health Spending Accounts, or Health Reimbursement Arrangements to help offset medical expenses. The accounts may allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars for procedures like LASIK. Ask your employer or insurance provider about deducting pre-tax dollars from your paycheck for potential savings on your laser vision correction procedure. Use this simple FSA Savings calculator and see how much you can save on LASIK by using a Flexible Spending Account.

LASIK Tax Benefits
LASIK may be tax deductible, depending on your filing status. Please consult your accountant. Many patients choose to use their tax refund to pay for LASIK, an investment that can last a lifetime.

Credit Cards for LASIK
Many patients opt to pay for their procedure using a personal credit card. This may be a good option, especially if you have a card that carries a low interest rate, offers points or other rewards.
