At our laser eye surgery center, Black Hills Regional Eye Institute, we believe that everyone should be able to take advantage of the scientific breakthroughs that have revolutionized eye care. Millions of people around the globe have been able to free themselves from having to depend on glasses and contact lenses in their daily lives, and there is no reason that you can’t join them. If you have been hesitant to explore laser eye surgery because you think it’s not within your budget, you owe it to yourself to contact Black Hills Regional Eye Institute today. You may be surprised by just how affordable quality eye care can be.

Many people immediately think LASIK when they encounter the phrase “laser eye surgery”; however, LASIK is just one of the options available at our practice. An affordable alternative to LASIK, PRK produces similarly excellent results without the need to create a flap in the top layer of the cornea. This makes the procedure appropriate for many patients who aren’t good candidates for LASIK, as well as for those who wish to avoid the potential (albeit rare) complications that arise from the creation of a corneal flap.

At our laser eye surgery center in Rapid City, PRK costs are discussed in specific detail during an initial consultation at our state-of-the-art office. To schedule your initial consultation, please call or email Black Hills Regional Eye Institute today.

Paying for PRK

While we cannot quote the cost of your PRK without first meeting you and evaluating your candidacy for the procedure, we recognize that it represents a significant investment. At our laser eye surgery center, we do whatever we can to keep our costs as low as possible for our patients; however, we also stand by our pledge never to cut corners or compromise the quality of the care we offer. Patients who undergo custom PRK at our practice can expect that we will use only state-of-the-art technology which, combined with the extensive experience and training of our doctors, allows us to achieve consistently excellent results. Nevertheless, our prices are highly competitive.

Patients who wish to finance their PRK surgery may do so through CareCredit®. CareCredit®, part of the financial arm of General Electric, offers financing for elective healthcare procedures such as PRK. If you qualify for financing, you can pay for your procedure up front and then make low monthly payments to CareCredit®. You may qualify for low- or even no-interest payment plans, making PRK a possibility for nearly any budget.

Black Hills Regional Eye Institute also accepts cash, cashier’s checks, MasterCard®, Visa®, and Discover®. It is also possible to set up a Flex spending account to pay for PRK. Give us a call or shoot us an email, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about the various ways of paying for your PRK treatment.

The bottom line is that high-quality PRK surgery is within your reach, regardless of your budget. You don’t have to live with poor vision any longer. Contact our practice today.
