Clearview Eye and Laser Medical Center works hard to make our services affordable and within the reach of any budget. Insurance companies rarely cover LASIK as it's considered elective surgery.

We understand that not everyone can afford to pay for vision corrective surgery out of pocket. Therefore, Clearview offers financing options through CareCredit, who specializes in financing medical procedures with high approval rates.

Here are a number of options to make your care affordable:


Clearview Eye and Laser Medical Center has partnered with CareCredit to offer our patients convenient payment plans. CareCredit offers the following benefits:

  • Line of credit for current and future procedures
  • 100% financing with no down payment
  • Special financing on approved credit
  • Low monthly payments
  • No prepayment penalty
  • No annual fees

Flexible Spending Plans

Many employers offer a Flexible Spending Account as an employee benefit. Money is withheld from your paycheck and deposited pre-tax into a tax-sheltered savings account that you can use for medical expenses, including elective procedures such as LASIK. Because the money you deposit isn't taxed, you can save substantially on medical expenses for you and your dependents. The only catch is that these dollars are "use it or lose it." In other words, at the end of a specified time period, the IRS will take it. The money cannot be rolled and your employer cannot refund it. Ask your benefits manager for more information on your company's FSA plan.

Health Savings Accounts

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-sheltered savings account that can be opened by those individuals who choose a high deductible health plan. These accounts are individually owned - not company-owned. The money you deposit in a HSA is not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit and unlike a Flexible Spending Account, the funds are not "use it or lose it." If you don't spend what's in your account, the funds will simply accumulate. The only catch is that HSA dollars can only be used for "qualified medical expenses." Thankfully, LASIK is one of these qualified medical expenses.

Beware of "Cheap" LASIK

Beware of bargain prices. Some companies advertise for as low as $299 for LASIK but are full of hidden fees that can end up costing you a lot more. When it comes to LASIK, the old saying, "You get what you pay for," fits perfectly. If you pay very little, expect very little from your doctor, the equipment they use, and the end results of your LASIK procedure.

The quality and recency of the LASIK technology used is generally a substantial determining factor in the cost of your LASIK procedure. Using more advanced technology means improved safety, the ability to create thinner flaps during the procedure, and all-over higher accuracy. At Clearview, Dr. Sandy T. Feldman performs "True Custom" LASIK, which uses the technology approved even for the military!

Clearview Eye and Laser Medical Center always uses the latest proven technologies available for all of our procedures, and has a knowledgeable and caring staff who accompanies you through every step of your visit with us. Through financing with Care Credit, LASIK can become affordable on nearly any budget.
