Are glasses and contacts cheaper than LASIK?

Myth: Glasses and contacts are cheaper than LASIK.

Fact: Not taking into consideration that seeing without a visual aid is priceless, LASIK can actually save you money.

When looking at the average eyecare cost over 10 years LASIK is not necessarily more expensive. Have you ever calculated how much you spend on glasses and contact lenses? For calculation purposes I worked on 10 years. Those younger than 30 may save even more. This is also why it is a good idea to have LASIK sooner rather than later.If you spend an average of R3 400 on your glasses every 2 years, you will spend R17 000 in the next 10 years, on your glasses alone.If you prefer the convenience of seeing without glasses and wear contact lenses, you probably spend at least R3 000 per year. That will amount to R30 000 in the next 10 years.Both your glasses and contact lenses may cost you around R47 000 in the next 10 years. It is common today for Refractive surgeons to offer payment options to make clear, effortless vision a reality for more people.Best decision ever.The medical content provided is not intended to replace a consultation with a health care provider.
