Laser eye surgery can be a cost-effective solution

What does laser eye surgery cost?

As a rough guide, the cost of laser eye surgery can range from around $2600 to $3400 per eye. When you compare this to a lifetime of purchasing, replacing and maintaining glasses and contact lenses, many people find that laser eye surgery is a cost-effective option.

Take the first step in finding out the cost

Your initial surgical consultation involves:

  • Comprehensive testing and examination of your eyes
  • A recommendation as to which is the most suitable procedure for you
  • An in-depth discussion with one of our highly experienced surgeons about the procedure, expected visual outcome, potential risks and expected recovery period
  • A detailed quote (interest-only payment plans available)

The cost of laser eye surgery with one of our surgeons is transparent and all-inclusive. Our price includes the cost of all consultations and follow-up appointments, surgeon and theatre fees, medications and any enhancement procedures within two years of the initial surgery.

Remember, there is no obligation to proceed with surgery if you decide it isn’t the right option for you. 

Does my health insurance cover laser eye surgery?

BUPA members with Ultimate Health cover receive 100% cover for a laser eye surgery procedure

The total cost for your procedure is billed directly to BUPA, so the only costs to you are consultation fees and diagnostic tests (subject to a 3-year waiting period). Call BUPA on 134 135 to find out if you’re eligible.

Medibank members with selected extras and packaged covers can receive a 15% reduction on surgical fees for a laser eye procedure.

This offer only applies to laser eye surgery performed at Vision Eye Institute (does not include consultation fees or diagnostic tests). Call Medibank on 132 331 to find out if you’re eligible.

 

If you’re with another health fund, contact them directly to see whether you’re covered for laser eye surgery. Please note that Medicare does not cover any of the cost of laser eye surgery.

We are dedicated to research

As a patient-focused company, Vision Eye Institute aims to deliver the best possible clinical outcomes. To achieve this, our practice must continue to evaluate and innovate. Vision Eye Institute’s doctors have created a culture that emphasises rigorous clinical review. Through regular, methodical and comprehensive review of all facets of clinical and surgical practice, our doctors can readily benchmark themselves against best-practice outcomes. The demand for our doctors to share their results and experiences at scientific conferences, both locally and overseas, is testament to our ability to deliver a consistently high standard of patient care and clinical outcomes. Due to the size of our organisation, we are able to support our doctors with a dedicated research team. This team is responsible for translating the data into peer-reviewed research articles and extending the group’s research interests.

During your initial consultation, you will receive a detailed, all-inclusive quote for your laser eye surgery procedure.
