How much does laser eye treatment cost?

With the prospect of a significant improvement in your quality of sight, the incurred costs are more bearable. After treatment, you also save on expenses for glasses, lenses and contact lenses.

When will a health insurance provider assume the costs for laser eye treatment?

A health insurance provider will only assume the costs for laser eye treatment in the following exceptional circumstances:

  1. Cataract surgery
  2. Intolerance of glasses and contact lenses
  3. Treatment of severe visual impairment (over 10 dioptres) with proven contact lens intolerance
  4. Severe variation in the visual acuity of your eyes (more than 3 dioptres) with proven contact lens intolerance

The exceptions noted above can be ascertained and recorded in writing during the preliminary examination. However, it is worth seeking a discussion with your health insurance provider nonetheless. Should you be required to bear the costs of the intervention, this can be noted in your tax return.
