So you are considering in eye surgery and want to find out what eye surgery costs. Congratulations that you do research before going under the knife, or laser in this case…

The costs of eye surgery go beyond the money you have to put on the table. Prices range from $1,000 per eye with high turnover, mass-production surgeons, to around $5,000 for both eyes when you get an eye surgeon who knows what he is doing.

So, you either have the money to do that or you don't.

But What Are The Real Eye Surgery Costs?

Money is one thing, but do you understand what eye surgery costs long term? Did your eye surgeon explain to you everything you should consider?

How about an expected 3-6 months of red, dry, irritated, and itchy eyes. You'll need to drop your eyes every couple of hours or so for months, just to keep the lubricated.

Is it a rare side-effect? No, it's quite common, actually more common than not, because you have to keep your eyes open for an unnaturally long period. They do that with shiny, little metal clamps that stick under your eye lids that pull your eyes open for 15 - 30 minutes or longer, depending on how long the procedure takes on the day.

What Eye Surgery Costs Long-Term?

You see, if you don't get rid of the underlying root cause of your eye problems, your conditions are likely to return. It happens more often than eye surgeons and other official like to admit, but it's the exact reason why the FDA is actually investigating eye surgery again since 2008 in regards to its side-effects, and long-term effectiveness.

But why doesn't it last? Great question.

Eye Surgery Costs Long-Term

The reason is that we all have beliefs in our mind about what we should and what we shouldn't see, and how well our eyes function at what ago, time, etc.

These beliefs function much like a thermostat in an air-conditioning unit. If you have that one set to 68 degrees and open the windows on a hot summer day, the thermostat will pick up the difference and kick in action to cool the room down.

The same happens in your mind. We all have a "thermostat" installed in our mind that is set to "see blurry past 10 feet" or "can't read without glasses after 40", or something along those lines.
