Do you love the idea of waking up every morning with the kind of crisp, clear vision you’ve only dreamed about? You can make these dreams a reality with a permanent laser vision correction procedure like LASIK!
But how do you pay for LASIK and not break the bank? The answer may surprise you. Keep reading to discover why clear vision with LASIK can cost you as little as $8 a day!
Do you stop by your local coffee shop for a much-needed jolt of caffeine every morning? You might pick up a muffin, breakfast sandwich, or a drink for your work bestie if you’re feeling generous.
Sure, that iced caramel macchiato may taste incredible, but you’ve easily spent $10 to wake up. That can feel like a lot right now!
What about your happy hour habit? Do you love relaxing after work with a cocktail or two? You might grab a snack or two because you got hungry, and it’s not quite dinnertime, right?
Happy hour can be a fantastic treat, especially after a long and grueling day at the office. But what if you could permanently enjoy clear vision after making a few minor tweaks to your current budget?
Did you know that you could make LASIK realistically fit your budget for as little as $8 a day? As crazy as that sounds, it’s true.
Think about it. Do you need that order from your favorite coffee shop every morning?
Make Some Inexpensive at Home Switches
You could switch to buying an at-home coffee syrup, make a cold brew ahead of time that sits in your refrigerator, or switch to black coffee for something different. Consider finding easy breakfast options you can grab as you run out the door, saving you some funds in the morning.
Love muffins? Bake them on the weekends with local fruits or artisan chocolates to make them feel decadent and like you’re still treating yourself.
If you’re serious about making your visual freedom dreams a reality, cut back on your happy hour outings. See if your work colleagues want to gather at your house with a bottle or two of wine to encourage socializing without the increased costs.
Pick up some yummy appetizers from the grocery store to make sure nobody needs to order takeout, or make a casserole ahead of time that everyone chips in for with a few dollars.
The key here? Make sure you’re taking the money you saved and setting it aside to pay for LASIK in a separate savings account.
Show of hands here: do you know how many streaming services you currently subscribe to? Most people find that they barely use the ones they subscribe to, which is like stealing money from yourself.
If you’re trying to adhere to a stricter budget, take a good, hard look at your finances. Are there subscriptions that you don’t use anymore that you’re still paying for?
It may not sound like much, but if you’re paying for five different streaming services at around $10 a month, that can add up very quickly! Cancel the ones you don’t need, and see if you can bundle others together for a more cost-effective plan.
When you find these extras in your budget, you may also find that you have far more wiggle room for elective procedures like LASIK. With its one-time up-front cost, LASIK just makes sense.
Whether you love the idea of visual freedom or want more money to spend on things you care about, like your first business or a trip around the world, or you want to be fiscally savvy and save for a rainy day, getting LASIK means you can save up for the things that count most.
There’s a lot to love about LASIK. Many patients shy away from it because they think they can’t afford it. Here’s the thing: if you want LASIK and are a good candidate, cost shouldn’t be what stands in your way of getting it.
LASIK becomes far more affordable for almost anyone with options like financing on the table! Here at IQ Laser Vision, we offer numerous financing options and solutions. These include no-interest payment plans through CareCredit with low monthly payments of only $249.
You’re looking at about $8 a day when you do the math. Remember how you can save money by reducing your daily coffee habit and going out less for happy hour outings?
It all becomes worth it when you can use your savings to get LASIK! Not to worry, though, because we also offer financing options through Alphaeon Credit.
Other options you can explore are FSAs and HSAs. An FSA (flexible savings account) is an account that an employer can open for you as part of a benefits program. You can use your FSA to help pay for healthcare costs like copays and deductibles.
But you can also use an FSA to help pay for procedures like LASIK using pre-taxed income. Using an FSA to pay for LASIK will likely only cover part of the procedure. But with your FSA, you can make a significant dent in what you’d need to cover without it.
One caveat for FSAs: you must use them before the calendar year ends; otherwise, you forfeit the funds. Another option is an HSA (health savings account), which works similarly to an HSA, but an employer does not have to open one for you.
You can open an HSA for qualified healthcare expenses. These include paying for LASIK, but only if you have a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Health savings accounts allow for a higher contribution level than an FSA, but you may still need to cover the remaining cost of LASIK if you’re a single contributor.
Whether you choose a flexible monthly financing plan or an FSA or HSA, plenty of options are available to make your dreams of vision correction a reality!
So, what makes LASIK the ultimate investment? Consider a few things. First, did you know that, on average, most people spend $500 annually on glasses, contact lenses, and their required accessories?
Second, you may not realize that LASIK is a permanent procedure. Endless urban legends and myths are floating around claiming that LASIK wears off. This is false, as is true of most urban legends.
LASIK is permanent because it reshapes your cornea to correct refractive errors. These include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
An essential thing to remember is that you have to meet LASIK candidacy factors even to be considered for the procedure. If you’re not a good LASIK candidate, reshaping the cornea can lead to concerning complications for your vision. Only true LASIK candidates can have LASIK.
Third, most LASIK patients who finance their vision correction procedure end up paying off LASIK in as little as two years. Once you reach this point, it’s incredible because you’ll own your vision.
Imagine seeing clearly with the ability to see in high-definition constantly. You’ll have the best vision of your life from the moment you wake up until going to sleep.
That’s decades of incredible vision, which, by the way, is far superior to what you could have ever achieved when you wore visual aids. How is this possible?
When you have LASIK at IQ Laser Vision, your eyes are corrected beyond your original prescription when you wore visual aids. There’s a reason why most LASIK patients end up with 20/20 vision or better, along with improved depth perception and better ability to see contrast between colors. You’ve never seen a world like this before.
