The focus is on you.
How Much Does LASIK Cost in Washington D.C.?
Because LASIK is a customized procedure based on each patient’s unique vision correction needs, an exact price can’t be determined without a LASIK consultation first. On average, LASIK costs $1,000 – $3,500 per eye in Washington D.C., but the price drastically varies depending on where you get your LASIK procedure done, what is included in the price (medication, surgery, postoperative care), the experience of the surgeon, and the procedure variations required.
At Envue, we believe in clear and transparent pricing. All of our laser vision correction procedures (LASIK, SMILE, PRK) are priced the same $2500 per eye, so you can pick the best procedure for you.
Can I Afford LASIK?
While the initial price of LASIK may seem steep at first, it is much more affordable than you think. If you use contact lenses to correct your vision, you may be surprised to find out that how much you pay for contact lenses every year is quite close to how much LASIK costs. This doesn’t take into consideration the cost of annual contact lens exams or the risks associated with contact lens wear. LASIK lets you live without contact lenses and eyeglasses for many years and is much cheaper long-term than contact lenses!
However, if the cost of LASIK still concerns you, there are many different available options to afford the procedure. Envue Eye & laser Center offers financing options that can help make LASIK more affordable, as low as $139 a month.

Is LASIK Covered By Insurance?
Although many of our patients consider LASIK eye surgery a necessary and overall life-changing procedure, it is typically not covered by insurance since it is regarded as an elective procedure. If your employer offers vision plans, be sure to review the outline of benefits since some plans may cover LASIK if certain conditions are met. If your company would like to join our corporate advantage plan, please contact SMILE@envueeye.com
Can Medical Savings Accounts Help Pay for LASIK?
Employers usually sponsor Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). LASIK is typically covered under these plans, among other vision correction procedures. Patients participating in Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts can set aside tax-free funds from their earnings for Vision Correction Procedures, such as LASIK.
Are There LASIK Payment Plans?
Financing companies offer a variety of plans for you to choose from, including one that allows you to complete payments within three months or one that extends monthly payments for three years. Paying overtime can be arranged by some companies with no extra charges.
Individual credit the financing company uses will determine the interest rates and deposits. If you’re interested in learning more about the LASIK payment plans, contact our office today to learn more about our financing options.
