Frequently Asked questions

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

How Much Does LASIK Cost in South Carolina?

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 South Carolina?

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 South Carolina?

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 South Carolina

The staff was friendly and helpful. Have thorough information about what to expect. I was fairly nervous during the procedure but the nurse held my hand and talked me through my anxiety. The procedure was quick and painless.. The healing time was minimal and I could see better immediately. I am thrilled I made the decision to get LASIK!

The LASIK Vision Institute was a great experience from beginning to end. The office personnel and technicians made us feel comfortable from our initial contact until our post op follow-up. Dr Carr was fantastic and made the surgery quick and painless. Looking forward to the continued improvements I am already experiencing. I would highly recommend them for your vision improvement surgery. -Alexa S.

I had such a wonderful experience here! The virtual consultation was done over Teams with no issue. My insurance was running a special for the month of April so they got me in quickly for an exam and then scheduled my surgery same day. Surgery was painless and honestly not even as uncomfortable as I was expecting. Healing is going great and I can SEE! Go here. You won’t regret it. Everyone was so nice…

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
