While October may seem a little early to start thinking about your HSA or flex account, most plan participants lose benefits at the first of the year, making now an ideal time to begin planning your procedure.
LASIK is not covered by insurance and, even with financing options such as CareCredit®, the cost of LASIK may seem prohibitive. If you have a flex account or a HSA, you can use the money you have set aside for uncovered healthcare expenses to cover costs related to laser vision correction. If you are uncertain if LASIK is eligible for payment through your HSA or flex account, talk to your plan administrator or HR department to find out. Then call Seeta Eye Centers at 845-454-1025 to schedule a consultation at our Fishkill or Poughkeepsie location and learn how our experienced eye surgeons can help you achieve crystal clear vision for years to come.
Are You a Good LASIK Candidate?
LASIK is a surgical procedure during which the cornea is reshaped to correct issues such as hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. The best candidates for LASIK are men and women who have a refractive vision disorder and are looking for a lasting alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses.
LASIK candidacy requires stable vision for at least 12 months and specific corneal thickness to reduce complications. In addition, you will need to be free of most eye diseases and disorders, including dry eyes, to be a good candidate for LASIK. If certain factors make you a poor LASIK candidate, our eye surgeons will be happy to discuss alternative options such as PRK or refractive lens exchange.
The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for LASIK is through a one-on-one consultation at our Poughkeepsie or Fishkill office. During this consultation, we can also discuss financing your LASIK procedure or covering costs with a flex plan or HSA. Call us at 845-454-1025 to set your appointment up and let us help you find lasting freedom from prescription eyewear.
