What Is LASIK?
LASIK is a surgical procedure to correct vision problems, such as
nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Laser
vision correction has been used since the 1980s to successfully correct
nearsightedness and astigmatism.
What Is My Cost?
The discounted cost of LASIK services, including a pre-operative vision exam,
the surgery itself and post-operative care, starts at $895 per eye. Financing is
available to patients for 100 percent of the cost upon approved credit.
A fully refundable deposit is required when booking your procedure.
How Do I Find a Provider?
Members may call 1-877-763-2020 toll free to locate a participating provider.
Currently, providers are located in Little Rock, Springdale and Memphis. TruVision contracts with board-certified
ophthalmologists using only FDA-approved equipment.
Is LASIK Right for Me?
LASIK offers quick visual recovery, low risk of discomfort after surgery, low
risk of infection and effective treatment for a wide range of vision
deficiencies. LASIK, however, does not correct all vision deficiencies. Since
not everyone is a candidate for LASIK surgery, a series of pre-operative
screening questions and a physician examination will determine who is eligible
for treatment. Members may call 1-877-763-2020 and be screened to determine
