Cost and financing of a LASIK operation
Reduced costs of eye laser surgery at lasik germany®
Analysing the cost/benefit ratio for laser eye surgery, it quickly becomes clear that despite patients having to pay a higher excess, the benefit of laser eye surgery outweighs the cost for the surgery.
LASIK cost – a much discussed topic
The cost-saving measures of health insurance companies affect virtually all medical services. Laser eye surgery is also affected, as this is usually not paid for by the health insurers. But on comparing the cost/benefit ratio, it becomes clear that LASIK eye surgery is a good investment; the correction of shortsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism in particular pays off quickly. Each year thousands of patients who suffer from defective vision are successfully treated with high-tech laser surgery at the lasik germany® centres across Germany. After a short and almost pain-free procedure they can look forward to a life without glasses or contact lenses.
Why LASIK costs more than conventional eye surgery
The LASIK method uses costly laser technology, which makes it more expensive than conventional methods and only laser surgery centres like those of lasik germany® use the latest state-of-the-art equipment and can demonstrate remarkably high success rates.
The LASIK method is the most widely used treatment for the correction of vision defects, particularly shortsightedness and farsightedness. The extremely high treatment success, the short operating time and the quick, pain-free recovery of patients are good reasons for laser eye surgery, which is fast becoming a treatment of choice for people with vision defects.
Stop spending money on glasses and contact lenses
After successful laser eye treatment, expensive glasses and contact lenses become a thing of the past. This not only improves your quality of life but in the long run also the health of your wallet.

Costs deductable – Relief for your vision and your tax return?
Laser eye treatment is tax deductible: Costs for eradicating or alleviating an illness may be stated as an extraordinary burden in the tax return. Defective vision – whether short or far-sightedness – is classified as an illness whose treatment is considered as remedial treatment. This can be read about in a decision by the Koblenz Regional Tax Office of June 22, 2006, on page 2284 A – St. 32 3, which shows that the tax officers accept laser eye treatment as an extraordinary burden (even if no medical certificate has been issued by an ophthalmologist).
However, the tax relief is quite different. The own share that patients have to bear by themselves varies from tax office to tax office. Basically, if the patient has to shoulder a high extraordinary burden in the fiscal year, the laser eye treatment is presumably deductible.
