The cost of laser eye surgery ranges from $500 to $4,000 per eye and varies based on personal, geographical and medical factors, according to Consumer Reports. Nationally, the average price per eye is $2,000.
Physicians may charge more or less based on a patient's vision, and whether they need PRK or LASIK, as TLC Laser Eye Centers states. In cities where the cost of living is higher, the cost of surgery is typically higher as well. Insurance providers do not usually cover the cost of laser eye surgery, causing patients to pay out of pocket. Surgeons with many years of experience or use advanced technology will usually charge more for their services.
