Why does laser eye surgery cost so much?

The diagnostic equipment alone costs around €50,000–100,000.

Then there’s the laser (femtosecond laser) for the first step of the procedure, which costs around €500,000, with usage fees ranging from €350 to €450 per use per eye.

On top of that, there’s the typical cost of the excimer laser (which shapes the eye), which is €150,000 at the low end and close to €300,000 at the high end (and we are certainly at the high end).

The cost of training an ophthalmic surgeon is also considerable, as this usually takes about 18 years – most of it after graduation.

Finally, there are the costs of premises, support staff, insurance and other ancillary costs associated with running a world-class clinic in a major city centre.

Insurance pricing & tax deduction

The cost of laser eye surgery if you have health insurance

At present, the cost is not covered by basic insurance. However, the costs may be partially covered by supplementary insurance. We recommend checking the conditions of your supplementary insurance policy and/or clarifying this with your own health insurance provider.

Tax deductibility is regulated differently in each canton, so it varies. It depends on your excess. We recommend that patients to check their personal deductibility. In most cases, the websites of the cantonal tax authorities can provide you with the information you need.

How much do our patients love us?

95.89% to be precise. But don’t take our word for it…

I had been wearing contact lenses for 35 years. As I got older, the lenses bothered me more and more, especially in the summer months because of the increasing dryness in my eyes. As I’m very sporty, I was looking for another solution to avoid having to wear glasses. I was very scared and sceptical about this eye laser correction option.

EyeLaser Zurich gave me the feeling of being in the right place from the very first moment. The explanation was understandable and explained in detail. Everyone always took enough time for me. The consultations and the follow-up checks were excellent.

The result is a dream. It’s incredible to get up in the morning and see everything immediately without having to go to the bathroom first to put my lenses in. I am so grateful :-)

Top support, top service, top work!

That’s all I can say. I’m so grateful to have found my way to you. I’m extremely satisfied and will always be happy to recommend you. Everything is just great. Thank you so much!

I was initially unsure about laser eye surgery.

These worries were allayed during the very first information session. The whole team is very friendly and explained everything in detail. The operation went very quickly and I was able to see perfectly clearly again after just a few hours. The feeling of being able to see properly again is overwhelming and I recommend it to everyone! At EyeLaser in Zurich you are in the best of hands. Thank you very much.

Serious advice, good care, great success.
I no longer need glasses after the laser treatment.

Very competent consultation and super results following the operation. Since the first day after the operation, I can see perfectly without glasses. This has also been confirmed today, a little more than a year later, in the follow-up check-up.
