PRK Cost: An Investment in Your Vision

The cost of PRK can vary depending on the technology used, the doctor's experience, and other factors. Dr. Jeffrey Minkovitz at Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.A. can fully explain PRK cost during a consultation at his Wilmington, DE, practice. He and his team have many years of experience and use the latest technology to ensure that patients achieve the best possible returns on their investment in PRK, LASIK, and other refractive surgery procedures. Call us today to schedule your consultation.

PRK Cost Factors

PRK surgery sharpens vision, minimizing or eliminating your reliance on glasses or contact lenses. While many patients have found PRK to be an excellent investment in their quality of life, the price tag varies from case to case depending on several factors, including: 

  • Your surgeon's experience: In general, a more experienced surgeon will charge higher fees than a less experienced surgeon. However, by choosing a more experienced surgeon, the likelihood of a successful procedure is much greater, and the risk of needing a costly revision surgery is greatly reduced.
  • Technology: Custom PRK incorporates wavefront technology to detect the most minute corneal imperfections, which can result in more precise results. While custom PRK can be more costly than traditional PRK, it can significantly reduce your risk of developing higher order aberrations such as glare and halos after surgery.
  • Insurance coverage: Some health insurance providers will cover a portion of refractive surgery costs, while others will not. We are happy to contact your insurance provider on your behalf to determine if you are eligible for any coverage.

The cost of PRK is usually comparable to LASIK surgery, since the procedures are similar. 

Cost Advantages

It is important to understand that many PRK patients experience greater freedom from the annual cost of glasses, contact lenses, disinfecting solutions, and other corrective eyewear-related expenses. Many patients who depend on corrective eyewear have suffered the hassle of being out of town and having to unexpectedly replace glasses or contacts, which can also involve a costly visit to a local eye doctor. With PRK, patients can save not only money, but also time. While the cost of PRK can be significant, it can provide invaluable benefits when properly performed by a reputable ophthalmologist.

Making PRK Affordable

PRK surgery can provide lifelong benefits, and most patients feel that sharper vision is well worth the cost. Our team wants to make clearer vision more accessible to every patient suffering from refractive errors. We offer no-interest financing plans to help you cover the cost of your laser eye surgery, and will take time to explain these options so you can select the best option for your budget.
