LASIK treatments are surgical procedures which aim to restore full sight to people who suffer from near and far-sightedness, as well as those who have astigmatism. These procedures are highly sought after across the world, as it solves eyesight problems for at least 10 years (some even longer). These surgeries are (and should be) done by highly skilled optical surgeons with state-of-the-art equipment, involving computers and low-wattage lasers, which have to be used with great precision. This is why the cost of these treatments has to be somewhat high. The cost is, then, what influences people to search for LASIK solutions outside of their own borders, because, as we will see, prices vary from one country to another, significantly.
The prices of LASIK surgeries vary greatly across the world. The reasons for this are, of course, different overhead costs in different countries, but also some other things, like the cost of R&D of the machines used, or at least the cost of obtaining them. When it all adds up, you get the prices which vary in different countries. This is also a good thing, as it allows people to travel for these procedures and save money.
On average, the cost of an Eye/LASIK surgery across the world is $2,398. For people living in the developed countries, this is not a lot of money to get their perfect eyesight back. For those that are not from there, they may look at the cheaper options, as the prices start at just $38 for a glaucoma surgery in India. The cheapest proper LASIK surgery can be found in Egypt, for just $203.
