4 Tips To Make Better Vision More Affordable in Utah

When it comes to your eyes, safety, experience, and vision outcomes should be your top priority. However, if vision correction is right for you, we believe the cost of the procedure should not jeopardize your ability to receive the highest quality vision correction in northern Utah. It is never worth it to try to save a few dollars by choosing a doctor with whom that you are not completely comfortable.

However, the cost of your vision correction surgery is an important part of the equation when deciding if vision correction surgery is right for you. Many people are surprised to discover that vision correction surgery can actually save you money over time. A recent survey indicated that for most people LASIK surgery pays for itself within three years. Here are some additional tips to help ensure you get the highest quality vision correction procedure while making it affordable for nearly any budget.

Tip 1: Flex spending

Flex Spending Accounts are more common than ever and offer tax-free options for people to pay for medical expenses. With FSAs, employees decide on an amount to set aside from each paycheck that can be used for approved medical expenses. Because these funds are not taxed, it is a great way for your money to go 15-30% farther. Also, because the funds agreed to for FSAs are available at the beginning of your benefits period, you can use your full amount to pay for LASIK and not pay interest or financing charges.

Tip 2: Tax Refund

If you are among the nearly 8 out of 10 Americans that will receive a tax refund this year, this could be a great resource to pay for vision correction surgery. If you are expecting a refund this year, now is a perfect time to schedule your complimentary VIP Vision Correction Consultation. When you come in for your consultation, you will be able to find out all the details you need to know exactly what procedure will be right for you, what kind of results you can expect, and the exact cost of your surgery. Don’t waste your refund by spending it on something that you will quickly forget. By using your tax refund you will be investing in yourself and will be using your refund for something that you will be able to enjoy every day for years and years to come.

Tip 3: Financing
