The average cost of LASIK eye surgery in 2014 varied depending on where it was performed, whether the patient had surgery on one or both eyes, and who the doctor was. However, for quality surgery in the United States, the rate was roughly $2,000 per eye.
LASIK advertisements generally quote the price for having surgery on only one eye, and patients should take this into consideration when considering options. Caution is suggested when dealing with providers who offer prices far below the $2,000 average, because this usually indicates lack of quality and a likelihood of prices increasing as the process continues. In general, patients who pay premium rates get the best quality, including pre-surgery consultation and post-surgery checkups.
