Considering LASIK in St. Louis and worried about cost? Have you ever thought about how much it costs to maintain your glasses? Or keep changing out your contacts? Here’s a cost comparison between LASIK and glasses/contacts you might find helpful when deciding whether you can afford vision correction surgery:
We own all of our lasers and diagnostic equipment, which allows us to provide advanced diagnostic services to determine which options are best for you, right here in St. Louis. We are among only a handful of laser vision correction centers in the United States to offer LASIK plus all six modern variations, onsite and with surgeons whose only concern is your vision. We are not about quantity; we are about quality.
You can have crisp, clear vision. It is within your reach.
Everyone is family at Brinton Vision, and honesty and integrity are part of who we are and the relationships we build. Our pricing does not change based on how or when you are treated, and we do not offer cash discounts, coupons or specials to select patients and not to others. In fact, we bring whole new meaning to the phrase, “What you see is what you get.”
When determining whether LASIK or any of the six modern LASIK alternatives is best for you, quality care and outcome should be your top priority. Still, we recognize that vision correction must fit into your budget. We take all standard forms of payment (cash, check, credit card, etc.), and we are able to work with health savings accounts (HSA) and medical savings accounts (MSA). Most laser vision correction procedures are tax-deductible. We also work with multiple financing companies to provide monthly payment options to fit most budgets to make LASIK in St. Louis possible for you. Our most popular monthly payment options are:

If LASIK in St. Louis is right for you, covering the cost of the procedure should not jeopardize your ability to seek the quality of care you desire. Brinton Vision is committed to making our vision correction procedures affordable and offers various payment options that help work within your budget.
Choose from the following forms of payment:
Monthly payment plan options:
Many employers sponsor Flexible Spending and Health Savings Accounts (FSA or HSA). Vision Correction procedures such as LASIK are approved under most of these plans. Patients participating in either FSA or HSA plans through their workplace can set aside tax-free money for a vision correction procedure. You can put up to $2,500 annually into an FSA. Check with your employer about your FSA open enrollment period.

Insurance companies do not cover the costs associated with vision correction procedures, such as LASIK, as they are considered elective. The cost of laser eye surgery can vary greatly among the multiple providers in the marketplace. Prices advertised by these providers may or may not include usage of new technology, post-operative care and patient satisfaction guarantees. The differences can be confusing. Brinton Vision encourages you to research your options and decide for yourself if customized vision correction is right for you.
