Why is laser eye surgery expensive?
We have to accept that laser treatment is expensive, but there are good reasons for this.
Firstly we want to provide the highest standard of care and that requires very high technology, which is expensive. At the end of the day, it comes down to whether patient feels it’s worthwhile for them to undergo such surgery.
