Falls Church, Virginia -
Brusco Vision, a vision correction practice based in Falls Church, VA, has published a blog post titled, “How Much Does EVO ICL Cost?” Dr. Michael Brusco explains in the article that there is no simple answer to the question because there are several vital factors to consider. EVO ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), which is an implantable contact lens, may be the best option to correct the vision of patients who aren’t good candidates for the other LASIK procedures.
Dr. Brusco says, “The cost of an EVO ICL procedure can vary greatly depending on the type of lens used, the experience and skill of the surgeon, the location of the procedure, the patient’s current eye prescription, and other medical factors. Most people will pay between $1,000 and $1,500 per eye just for UV-protective lenses. When you add up the surgeon’s time, other materials, facility fee, eye exam, and follow-up appointments, the total cost of an ICL procedure will be higher. As with most things, you get what you pay for, and if there are discounts or deals, you might want to think about where they might be cutting corners to save money.”
At Brusco Vision, they do what they can to make the eye surgery more affordable without taking shortcuts on expert levels of care and patient safety. They provide several ways to pay, such as interest-free payment plans. Patients can also pay with cash, credit card, or check. Furthermore, the experienced vision care professionals at Brusco Vision will never recommend a procedure that is not needed, and they will always be open and honest as to how much the procedure will cost. In other words, there will be no surprise or hidden charges.
With regards to health insurance, it doesn’t typically pay for the vision correction surgery because it is considered an elective procedure. However, there are ways a patient can use employee benefits to reduce the cost of the surgical procedure for an ICL in the DC area and Northern Virginia. Those who have a Medical Savings Account (MSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Health Savings Account (HSA), or Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) through their job can use the money in it to help pay for the EVO Visian ICLs.
It is also important to note that the EVO Visian ICL can save the patient money over time, because it is a one-time expense for a corrective lens compared to the thousands of dollars of contacts and eyeglasses over the course of their life. For those who are considering EVO ICL for astigmatism, near-sightedness (myopia), presbyopia, or another refractive issue, it is important to discuss with the eye surgeon what the price includes to find out if there are any extra costs, including eye drops, follow-up appointments, facility fees, or enhancements.
Brusco Vision also offers financing options for the EVO ICL procedure. A common way of paying for the EVO Visian ICL surgery at Brusco Vision is the option with no down payment and no interest, payable for 24 months. Another common option is no down payment and low monthly payments with a fixed interest rate, payable in 60 months.
