No stranger to implementing programs for the betterment of North Carolinians, REC launched their “Best Price Guarantee” campaign on February 1st with the intent of helping bring the focus back to quality of care rather than price.
“Deciding to have vision correction procedures such as LASIK and PRK is a big step. While the surgeon that is selected should not be based on price, we understand that it is a consideration many have. We decided to remove this barrier to help prospective patients with the decision making process,” said James Kiley, MD, Refractive Surgeon at Raleigh Eye Center.
While the average price for LASIK has remained stable over the past few years, discounts and promotions are not uncommon. The most important factor when it comes to LASIK or PRK is the outcome. This can be affected by the skill of the surgeon and the technology that is used.
“There is a lot of confusing information out there with regard to price,” said Amanda Carey, LASIK Coordinator at Raleigh Eye Center. “Some facilities advertise a low price that is only applicable to a small fraction of patients. Our goal is to help take the question of price out of the equation so patients can focus on choosing the provider that is going to give them the best care and outcome,” added Carey.
LASIK, which stands for Laser Assisted Stromal In-situ Keratomileusis, is a surgical procedure that uses laser energy to reshape the eye’s cornea. By reshaping the cornea, vision is improved and the need for glasses or contact lenses is eliminated or reduced.
