Frequently Asked questions

Chicago 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 Chicago most commonly get asked every day to help you make an informed decision about this life-changing procedure.

How Much Does LASIK Cost in Chicago?

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 Chicago?

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 Chicago?

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.

My experience at this location was great! My appointments followed at times said. Dr. Horn was very fast and to the point with instructions. Made me feel comfortable throughout the procedure and I am now able to see with out contacts/glasses! Still can’t believe how fast the procedure is! So glad I made this decision! Thank you Dr.Horn and Lasik Plus Team!

I enjoyed the entire experience! It was easy to schedule an in person appointment after having an online consultation in which I was able to ask all my questions. I made the appointment for LASIK and was given options for finance as well as a thorough review of my procedure. The staff were helpful throughout that day. The procedure was very quick and I am so pleased with the outcome.

It was incredibly easy to set up a free consultation online, and it was genuinely free. The team got me an appointment in two days. The operation was finished in 15 minutes, and there was no pain, just a little discomfort for a short time. Today is my first day with 20/20 vision and it will only get better as the eyes fully heal and stabilize! I opted for the interest free 12 month payment…

I had such a great experience! Everyone at this clinic was very kind and knowledgeable. My lasik surgery was so quick and easy and I was able to see better instantly! The recovery was also very fast and I had no complications. Dr. Probst and his team are truly the best and I can’t thank them enough for giving me better vision!!

I have had glasses since I was 11 years old. For many years I’ve been wanting to have lasik but have always been afraid. But as time has gone by it’s been such a pain to wear them. This year I got the courage to finally get it done. I have to say it was the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m so happy to finally get rid of those glasses. Now I don’t have…

Quick, informative, and overall good experience! From beginning to aftercare, they were so helpful. The surgery itself was super quick; the surgeon even gave me a foam football to hold when he could tell I was a bit nervous. And of course, my vision was corrected! Wonderful experience. Just know that they are closed on weekends, so any appointment will be during the work week.

Just had my post-op visit, great experience overall and came away with 20/15 vision. Dr. Probst and his team walked me through the whole process and settled my nerves during the procedure. Highly recommend, wish I had done this years ago!

I had the procedure done in November 2023 and am ready to share the result. I have worn contact lenses since I was 12 years old and glasses since I was 9 years old. Before the operation I had myopia -7. I hesitated for a long time to have the procedure because I was worried that something would go wrong. But everything went better than I ever could have imagined. I still find it hard…

Amazing team and straight forward procedure. Everyone was informative and helpful with any questions and concerns I had. Came in for a consultation on a Wednesday and was able to get LASIK done by Friday. I'm back to having perfect vision while having an active lifestyle outdoors. No more carrying around prescription glasses and sunglasses. No more dealing with foggy lenses if it’s cold and raining. Overall recommend this for anyone that just wants to…

This place is great!! Loved the staff, all so very friendly, had a great experience. Came in for my evaluation and didn’t think I’d be a candidate for LASIK. I was surprised to say the least, so when they said I could have the procedure done that same day, I wasn’t mentally prepared for it. Thankfully they’re very understanding and scheduled me for the week after. Now I’m here for my post appointment and what…

I had a great experience here. I came in on a Wednesday for my consultation on Wednesday and had the surgery on Friday. Dr. Person did a fantastic job. Honestly I was terrified the entire time, but I didn't feel any pain only pressure on my eyes and just some uncomfortableness due to the things they use to keep your eyes open. The entire process only took about 15 minutes even though it felt like…

Had a great experience at The LASIK Vision Institute! The process was very smooth and the staff members thoroughly answered all the questions I had. Doctor McGlothan was very friendly and calm, which made me feel comfortable during the surgery. Surgery was quick too, the technology is amazing! Update: Over one year later, my vision is still excellent (20/20) and I’m truly happy with the results. Thank you Doctor McGlothan and all the team members…

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
