To help you out, we’ve created this blog post to break down all the costs regarding laser eye surgery. Have a read!
At George St Eye Centre, we offer laser eye surgeries as a package. Depending on the package and type of laser surgery that you choose and are suitable for, the price of surgery can range from between:
Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover the cost of laser eye surgery unless indicated for certain eye diseases.
Some health funds cover the cost of laser eye surgery if you are on their top, premium cover. Below are some health funds that we know cover the partial or full cost of laser eye surgery.
It is always best to contact your health fund directly to find out if you are covered.
At George St Eye Centre, we offer ZipMoney as a payment option to help you fund your laser eye surgery. This allows you to pay the money later at your own pace, interest-free for up to 18 months. This is a great option if you cannot afford to pay for laser eye surgery in one lump sum.
We understand how important it is to be transparent and open about the costs involved in any procedure you get done, and we’re here to help. On the day of your laser consultation, a detailed and comprehensive quote will be provided to you by our friendly receptionists. Any questions you have will be answered.
Cost is important, but ultimately, clear vision and the safety of your eyes are the most important factors when considering laser eye surgery.
