Articles Educate Patients About Costs, Variations of LASIK
San Diego, Calif., April 14, 2014 AllAboutVision.com has updated its "LASIK Eye Surgery Prices" article with new information based on fees during calendar 2013.
"Some patients have unrealistic ideas about LASIK prices based on advertising they've seen or heard," says Gary Heiting, OD, AllAboutVision.com senior editor. "AllAboutVision.com's article helps ground patients with real-world information."
"LASIK Eye Surgery Prices" is the most popular article in the site's LASIK & Vision Surgery section. Over the past five years, the article has been viewed almost 2.5 million times.
The article update provides consumers with the latest statistics on:
- The overall average cost of LASIK in the U.S.
- Average costs for bladed and wavefront, bladeless LASIK
- Cost ranges charged by surgeons for various procedures
"Right up front, this article makes prospective patients aware of the variations of LASIK, which can help prepare them for a consultation about which refractive procedure may be best for their individual visual requirements," says Jay Bansal, MD, of Santa Rosa, Calif.
New for this year, an accompanying article, "How to Compare Laser Eye Surgery Costs," explains what goes into the cost of LASIK and why procedure prices differ.
The site's LASIK & Vision Surgery section comprises more than 30 pages of procedure details, explanations of outcomes and risks, FAQ pages and video.
