Renting vs Buying

The Lifetime Costs of Contacts vs. LASIK

LASIK is a little like buying a house vs. renting one. It’s a long-term investment that will pay for itself over time…not to mention the hassles and frustration it will also save you. When you ‘rent’ your vision with glasses & contacts, not only will you pay more, but in the end you will still be nearsighted or farsighted. And that Astigmatism of yours…will still be there as well.

Yet many people still think they can’t afford LASIK. What they may not realize is that in reality, they really can’t afford NOT to have LASIK. While it may seem like contacts are the most affordable option, LASIK will actually save you thousands of dollars over the next 10-15 years compared to contact lenses and eyewear.

Obviously, the younger you are when you have LASIK, the more you can save. The average cost of contact lens wear is approximately $45 – $75 per month, depending on how compliant a person is with their contact lens regimen and the number of contact lens fittings or eye exams they have each year. Multiply this out by the average number of years a person wears contact lenses (15 – 20 years on average), and you’re going to spend $5000-$10,000 more than the cost of LASIK…and you will still have your nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism.
