How Much Is PRK ?

How much does PRK cost in 2024?

The Cost of PRK Eye Surgery

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a well-regarded laser eye surgery that corrects vision by reshaping the cornea. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the PRK procedure is often preferred over LASIK for patients with thinner corneas or other specific conditions like dry eyes, or for those who have a very active lifestyle or job. Understanding the cost of PRK is essential for anyone considering this vision correction option.

Average Cost of PRK

The cost of PRK surgery can vary significantly based on several factors, including the surgeon’s experience, the location of the clinic, and the specific technology used.

On average, here’s what you can expect:

National Average: The average cost for PRK surgery ranges from $2,000 to $4,000 for both eyes.

Factors Influencing Cost: The type of laser technology, pre- and post-operative care, and geographic location can all affect the final price.

LasikPlus Cost: At LasikPlus, our primary objective is to offer each patient a tailored treatment plan that aligns with their vision correction needs. We take pride in providing affordable LASIK eye surgery to eligible candidates, with pricing typically ranging from $1,099 to just over $2,899 per eye. Our transparent pricing ensures that patients know exactly what to expect, with no hidden fees or surprises.

Beyond the Sticker Price: Additional Considerations


While the cost of PRK is a significant factor, there are other important considerations:

Insurance Coverage: PRK is generally considered an elective surgery, so most insurance plans won’t cover the entire cost. However, some plans might offer partial coverage for pre-operative evaluations.

Financing Options: Many eye surgery centers, including LasikPlus, offer financing plans to help spread the cost over manageable monthly payments. Explore these options to make PRK more financially accessible.
Consultation is Key: Scheduling a consultation with Lasikplus is the first step in determining if you’re a candidate for the procedure, receiving a firm price quote, vision correction options, and more.

If you get PRK and currently wear contacts, how much will you save over your lifetime?

††Estimated cost of your contacts over time:


††Based on the selected age and type of contact lenses costs are estimates provided for comparison purposes only. Contact lens cost estimate excludes the cost of an annual routine eye exam. Contact lens costs will vary.

When thinking about LASIK, you should consider the cost of not having LASIK. When you take into account the amount of money you will spend over time as a glasses and/or contact lens wearer, the one-time cost of LASIK may come into focus as the better option. Not to mention to the hassle of buying contacts and solutions, putting contacts in, or searching for your glasses every time you wake up. Think about what you could do with that long-term savings of money and your time! In addition to the monetary and time savings provided by having LASIK – you will be helping the environment. Contact lenses are microplastics which are very slow to degrade. About 20% of contact lens wearers simply flush their old lenses, sending these small plastics into our waterways. Considering a large number of contact lens wearers, this is about 9 million pairs or 18 million individual contacts placed into our waterways. You can read more about the environmental damages caused by contact lens disposal here.
