    Most vision care insurance plans offer discounts on the cost of LASIK surgery (laser surgery to correct vision). Discounts vary from plan to plan and may not be offered by every doctor who does the surgery in your area. Read the plan’s fine print carefully before you have the surgery.

    Some vision care insurance plans cover the cost or a discount on refractive surgery such as LASIK. LASIK is a procedure used for astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. Review your plan's policy to find out if it covers refractive surgery.
