We will review all of our affordable financing options with you during your initial consultation. Most types of credit are accepted, and you can be qualified in just a few minutes.
Wells Fargo Health Advantage
Patients who prefer to finance their surgery through a third-party lender can apply for the Wells Fargo Health Advantage credit card. Among the benefits of this service are the easy online payment portal and a revolving line of credit to use on future medical expenses.
CareCredit is also a third-party lender which offers flexible financing terms and low-interest payment for patients. CareCredit allows you to make payments online and access your account easily.
Depending on your filing status, vision correction may be a legitimate tax deduction. You can consult your tax professional for more information. Additionally, a tax refund is an excellent opportunity to invest in your vision, reduce your need for corrective eyewear, and improve your quality of life.
For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards. This is the preferred payment option for many patients who are rewarded with miles, points, or low-interest rates each time they spend.
At Columbus LASIK Vision, we want every patient to have access to corrective eye surgery and begin enjoying a life without glasses or contacts!
