LASIK in Columbia, Missouri
LASIK in Springfield
LASIK in St. Louis

For most people, half the battle of getting LASIK is finding a surgeon you trust. The second half is figuring out how to pay for it. In fact, two of the most common phrases people search when they’re looking for the best LASIK surgeon in Columbia, Springfield, or St. Louis, Missouri are “cost of LASIK” and “cheapest LASIK.”

Truth is, paying for LASIK may not be as hard as you think. Since you already spend money each month on glasses, contacts, and supplies, it’s a simple matter of switching that investment to a permanent vision correction solution that can actually save you money in the long run.

We think everyone should have access to clear, natural vision. That’s why, in addition to cash, checks, and credit cards, we offer options you may not have considered.

FSAs and HSAs

Flexible Spending Accounts and/or Health Savings Accounts (FSAs or HSAs) are on-the-job perks that let you set aside up to $2,500 in tax-free money for LASIK or other vision correction procedures. That means you can save hundreds of dollars you’d otherwise pay in taxes, and you’ll see the savings! (See what we did there?) Ask your employer about these options.

Monthly Payment Plans

Your LASIK eye surgery (or any of the seven options Dr. Brinton provides) may qualify for financing plans through Alphaeon or Care Credit. Many people qualify for options with no down payment and no interest for 24 months, or no money down and low monthly payments for 60 months.

Tax Deductions

We know reading tax code is probably not your idea of a fun afternoon, but Revenue Ruling 200 is one section we get excited about. It says that medical costs for LASIK, plus any of the six procedures Dr. Brinton provides, that are not covered by insurance can be deducted from your personal income tax. That means you may get a significant credit at tax time.

Does Insurance Cover LASIK and Other Procedures?

It isn’t that we don’t accept insurance; it’s that insurance companies don’t cover LASIK—even though LASIK transforms lives in dramatic ways. There are still plenty of options available.

At Brinton Vision, we are committed to providing safe, proven solutions. Our goal is to help you to see the world the way you want to see it, and to provide as many payment and treatment options as possible to make sure clear, natural vision is within your reach.
