Frequently Asked questions

Albany LASIK Eye Surgery FAQ

LASIK can make patients a little nervous and confused so we took some of the most common questions our LASIK Surgeons in Albany most commonly get asked every day to help you make an informed decision about this life-changing procedure.

How Much Does LASIK Cost in Albany?

The  average price of LASIK Eye Surgery is $2,588* per eye (according to the most recent US analysis reported Market Scope in 2022). However, it’s important to note that this is just an estimate, and the actual cost can differ based on individual circumstances.

Does Insurance Cover LASIK Eye Surgery in Albany?

Insurance providers typically consider LASIK to be an elective surgery therefore it is typically not covered. However, most providers offer some kind of promotion or discount.

How Long is the Recovery for LASIK?

The recovery period for LASIK eye surgery is relatively short, with most patients experiencing improved vision within the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, though individual results may vary. While you may resume most normal activities within a few days, it’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions for the best and safest recovery outcome.

Is LASIK Eye Surgery Safe?

LASIK eye surgery is considered safe and has a high success rate for most patients, but like any surgical procedure, it carries potential risks and complications and the possibility of needing additional enhancements. It is crucial to consult with one of our qualified eye surgeon in our network to assess your individual suitability for LASIK and discuss any concerns you may have.

Who is a Candidate for LASIK in Albany?

LASIK candidates should have a stable prescription for at least one to two years and be in good overall health with healthy eyes. Additionally, corneal thickness, pupil size, and age are factors considered by eye care professionals. It’s essential to consult with an experienced, ophthalmologist or optometrist for a comprehensive examination to determine individual eligibility for LASIK.

What Vision Errors Does LASIK Correct?

LASIK is primarily used to correct common refractive errors, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. The procedure reshapes the cornea to improve the way light is focused onto the retina, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.

What people are saying in Albany

The staff was so helpful and eager to answer all questions and ease my mind. They were able to prepare me well for the procedure and made what could have been scary into an enjoyable experience. Best of all after the few hours of discomfort I cannot see without glasses!!!

My experience with TLC was great. I was always very averse to even considering laser eye surgery, but after having finally done it a few days ago, I only wish I did this a long time ago! The actual procedure was so fast and easy. All of the staff and doctors were great and very attentive. My vision at my post op follow up appointment was 20/15 and is more clear now than ever before…

I was very nervous on the day of treatment. Came in for my consult and saw Jim. By the time I left my consult he had me calm and ready for my procedure later that afternoon. Came back for the procedure, waited maybe 20 minutes and the whole process took 10 minutes. Quick and painless. The first few hours after were uncomfortable but not painful. After maybe 4 hours, my eyes felt ok and I…

These people were collectively the nicest kindest people that went the extra mile. I had a complication from surgery I had at a different company and they still took care of me. I was lost, in immense pain and sat in a ER all night not to be seen. They apologized even though they did nothing wrong and the doctors said " don't worry we will make you better. " And they did. I cannot…

I never thought I would be able to see this well. I was told I would never be able to have 20/20 vision even with glasses or lenses. I can now see better than 20/20 without having to go through any hassle for it. Words cannot express how grateful I am. Everyone was incredibly kind and helped me through the process from my assessment before I scheduled to my final appointment after the surgery. I…

My experience was amazing from start to finish, starting with my consult with Jim at the TLC Albany location. I felt 100% comfortable with the information I received about the procedure from Jim, Kate B. and Dr. Hunt. Any questions I asked about the procedure they answered and I was ready to book that day. On my surgery day again I was met with a great team of Kate ,Dr. Hunt, and Dr Schultze, eager…

The surgeon did a fantastic job! I want to give shout out to the staffs that work at the front desk they welcome me from the start to finish and it was one of the good experience I ever have.…

My Patient Care Coordinator, Tara was excellent, she explained the entire process in great detail and had me excited when I left my consult! Dr. Hunt was WONDERFUL to work with, very informative and made me feel comfortable before and after my procedure. The day of the procedure Kate was so…

The team at TLC is awesome! I went for my consultation and worked with Jayda, and she was so informative, and made me feel super comfortable. She answered all of my questions, and shared every single thing to expect for my consultation, as well as what to expect for the procedure. In addition, the eye exam they conducted to determine if I was a candidate was probably the most thorough eye exam I've ever had…

Reviews reflect individual experiences. As with all medical procedures, individual results will vary, and anyone considering LASIK should speak with a doctor.  A review of scientific articles published between 2008 and 2015 published in the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery found that 99.5% (59,503/59,833) of LASIK treated eyes addressed in the literature achieved post-operative acuity better than 20/40
