Why trust Diamond Vision with your iLASIK Surgery Procedure
Why should you entrust us with such a precious thing as your vision? Well, when it comes to iLASIK surgery and other laser vision correction procedures, our experts at Diamond Vision have a proven track record and are highly experienced in their field. Our award-winning LASIK surgeons will do everything they can to correct your vision and address any eye problems you may have.
As a matter of fact, Diamond Vision is one of the leading physician group practices in the field. For example, Dr. Stetson, our Medical Director, has performed over 50,000 refractive surgeries and has been a vital member of our LASIK surgeon staff since 2004.
Each year, prescription glasses typically cost from $250-$550 and contacts often cost over $550 annually, and then there’s $200 or more in solutions and maintenance. These costs add up quickly over the years and can mean well over $5000 spent in the span of only 5 to 7 years.
A lot of people think that vision correction procedures like iLASIK are a lot more expensive than wearing traditional glasses or contacts. Well, when looking at the costs, that belief might not be true in the long run. On average, prescription eyewear can cost up to $263 and $325. Contacts cost around $240, with about $145 of additional supplies each year. These fees can add up to several thousand dollars throughout the years.
On the other hand, iLASIK is a one-time procedure that costs around $2000 to $3000 per eye.
Also, the odds are in your favor with iLASIK, as the procedure has an overall success rate of 90% to 95%.
Even with such an outstanding success rate, you should still know that all procedures carry some risks, and iLASIK surgery is, unfortunately, no exception. Complications with the corneal flap may occur, even though the chances of this happening are far less when the procedure is performed by an experienced professional.
With iLAsik, flap irregularity risks are reduced. As the Intralase LASIK laser is computer-guided, the procedure will ensure that the corneal flap won’t be too shallow or deep, with the edges remaining as smooth and straight as possible.
