Many people have a number of questions about LASIK – especially about how to pay for the surgery. The Nielsen Eye Center is dedicated to making LASIK eye surgery affordable for all interested patients. For this reason, we provide the very best financing options in vision correction.
Forms of Payment
At The Nielsen Eye Center, we are committed to offering only the safest and most effective procedures available, while constantly staying on the cutting edge of laser and lens implant technology.
Most insurance companies consider LASIK surgery an elective procedure, so it is often not covered under basic health or vision plans. Because we feel that finances shouldn’t stand in the way of clearer vision, The Nielsen Eye Center has developed many payment options available to assist in making corrective surgery as affordable as possible.
The Nielsen Eye Center is proud to honor the most beneficial discount available to our patients. Each patient is entitled to one discount benefit per procedure.
