At Cavanaugh Eye Center, our fees for refractive surgery are global fees meaning that they include everything associated with your procedure. We charge a fee for your pre-operative consultation that includes all the scans and measurements for surgery but this fee is credited back towards the cost of your surgery. The procedure fee includes the surgeon fee, operating room charges, surgical supplies and all of your post-operative visits related to the procedure for the first year. Office visits un-related to the procedure will be charged as usual. If you are in the 10-15% of patients who require a LASIK enhancement procedure, this is included in the first year and then provided for a discounted fee thereafter.
Refractive surgery is elective and is rarely ever covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for the fees and payment in full is required prior to the procedure or at check in at the front desk on the day of surgery.
We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We do not provide financing in house but financing arrangements can be made through CareCredit. Through this option, patients can opt for financing over 1, 2 or 3 years or the one year same as cash option. You apply via www.carecredit.com
and your specific rates will depend on your credit rating. The process is simple and you will have a credit determination quickly. Our surgical counselors can provide you information about Care Credit and help guide you through the process.
