How much does LASIK eye surgery cost?

Expect to pay between $2,000 and $2,500 per eye for LASIK by a reputable surgeon.

You may have seen add for the LASIK as low as $299 per eye. Don't trust them. There are a number of unscrupulous LASIK provider who use 'bait and switch' tactics by advertise prices for packages that are designed to exclude almost all cases. In fact, this is issue had gotten so bad several years ago that it warranted a congressional investigation.

LASIK surgery varies in cost, and when it comes to your eyes, we would recommend considering multiple levels of pricing options. Research your surgeon options carefully and ask as many questions as it takes for you to feel comfortable with your choice. On average, a reputable LASIK procedure will cost approximately $2,000 per eye.

A few points to remember about LASIK pricing:

  • LASIK is typically quoted on a per-eye basis; each eye will typically need it's own degree of treatment.
  • Wavefront Surgery is more expensive, but also more accurate.
  • Beware of any promotions that claim LASIK for under $1,000 per eye; one day we may truly be there, but accuracy is obviously important to you - so pay for it! Also, ask probing questions to uncover any hidden costs.
  • Check with your insurance company to see if any of the procedure can be covered. Some insurance companies will contribute to it, however be mindful of your deductible before filing a claim.
  • Learn about the LASIK center; are the surgeon on-staff? If not, you will likely pay more since the surgeon is contracted.
  • Many - but not all - of the LASIK facilities in America offer a financing option. Check with your LASIK facility to understand their policy toward financing. If you need to get financing, look at financial companies that provide short pay-back periods (3 to 4 months ideally). The average payment will range $170 - $400 per month depending upon the amount you finance. Remember, you should be putting some money down if you are electing to go this route, similar to buying a car. Beware of financial institutions that offer 0% down payments, as their interest rates (23.99% or higher) will likely keep you in debt well past what the surgery costs were.

You should also check with your employer to determine if a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is available. With some "thinking ahead" planning on your part, you can begin saving money tax-free to dedicate toward this procedure. NOTE: Not all plans offer LASIK as an option for FSA, so check with your HR administrator for details.

Pain was not bad I just had it done and I had packing in for one day and really the most painful part was pulling out the packing.

Of course you cannot drink alcohol after surgery, the pain meds prescribed would cause havoc if alcohol is then introduced. It is not advisable to drink when taking pain medication.

However, once you have healed and are no longer on medications, it would be fine to drink some alcohol.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What are the major restrictions for 2 weeks after carpal tunnel surgery?

Main restrictions are - no heavy lifting & keep surgery location dry. I had surgery on both hands at the same time about 5 years ago and have never had any more problems/pain. Best thing I ever did for pain relief! I did have bandages on both hands but was still able to grasp and hold utensils for eating. I was back to work on 'light-duty' after 10 days and back to normal about a week after that. Hope this helped.

What happens if you bend after a scoliosis surgery?

As long as your movement isn't restricted anymore (after surgery, you'll have various post-operation restrictions that your surgeon gives you), nothing. Your spine will be solid bone where it was fused, so if you try to bend it, it's just like trying to bend your thigh in half - impossible. The muscles required to bend your spine are still there, though, so if you try to bend your vertebrae the muscles will strain to perform the impossible, and it sort of feels like trying to lift an insane amount of weight - impossible.

As long as you're not fused all the way to your tailbone, this shouldn't affect you too much. You can still bend over at the hips or kneel down to pick things up off the floor. You'll have great posture all the time. Most people don't have any problems living with fused spines; I was a varsity captain in tennis and had a fused spine all four seasons (fused T3-L3).

Who is Nataline Sarkisyan?

Nataline Sarkisyan was a 17-year-old from Northridge, CA diagnosed with leukemia. She died Thursday, December 20, 2007 hours after a nationwide protest caused her insurance company (CIGNA) to reverse its previous denial of coverage for a liver transplant.

CIGNA originally declined to pay for the liver transplant because the plan did not cover "experimental, investigational and unproven services."

Mark Geragos, attorney for Nataline's family, has stated that Cigna "maliciously killed her" and that her family is planning to press murder and/or manslaughter charges against Cigna HealthCare for their daughter's death.

How do you stand the smell in operation theater?

The smell of the operation room (theater), can vary vastly depending on the anapestic used to clean it, or due to the procedure going on inside. Most people who work in the operating room get used to the smells pretty quickly, though I do have to admit that some smells are easier to get used to than others.

What do Pediatric Surgeons major in?

First, at the undergraduate level there is no such thing as a degree in pre-med. It is a curriculum layout or sometimes referred to as a tract, which prepares students who intend to seek admission to medical schools. It includes activities such as prerequisite coursework, clinical experience, volunteer activities, and research.

While many individuals who pursue a career as a physician major in biology at the undergraduate level, many others come from a variety of other educational backgrounds. The best major should be based on a contingency plan. In other words, what happens if you do not go to medical school? What will you be able to do with the degree that you have, and will it provide you with a satisfying career or career path? You should meet with a career counselor at the college or university you attend for what options exist for you. Whichever major you choose, the critical issue is acquiring the appropriate prerequisite coursework required by medical schools. The student should have a strong background in the following areas.

  • Biology (cell biology, biology of the organism)
  • Chemistry (inorganic, organic)
  • Physics
  • Communication (written and oral)
  • Higher level math's (algebra, trigonometry, calculus)
  • Computer literacy
  • Development of good critical thinking skills.

Can you have a bladder transplant?

No. A bladder transplant would carry a risk of rejection and you'd have to take anti-rejection drugs all your life.

If you need to have your bladder removed, then a safer option is for the surgeon to create a replacement bladder from a section of bowel, or to live without a bladder and use a catheter to redirect urine into a collection bag worn on the thigh or leg.
