Laser eye surgery is now more affordable than ever, with regular adverts on the television boasting prices as little as £400 per eye. Exact prices do of course vary considerably according to which surgeon or company you choose; as a general rule larger companies offer more competitive prices than smaller, privately run practices. The price you pay will be heavily dependent on your surgeons experience, qualifications and reputation; the best surgeons may charge thousands for their services. It is best to ascertain the exact cost of the treatment before you agree to have the surgery. As a rough guide, patients should expect to pay anywhere between £400 and £2000 per eye for laser eye surgery.
Some treatments are more expensive than others; for example, Wavefront and Intralase treatments are more expensive than conventional LASIK treatments.
