Payment Options (Vision Correction Financing)

If you’re like most people, you probably have a number of questions about how to pay for your procedure. That’s why Monterey Bay Eye Center offers the following easy payment options to make your vision correction experience as smooth and affordable as possible.

At Monterey Bay Eye Center, we are committed to offering only the safest and most effective procedures available, while constantly staying on the cutting edge of laser and implant technology. As a result, the cost of our procedures may sometimes be greater than that of other centers not investing in the latest methods and technological advances.

Most insurance companies consider many eye procedures such as lens replacements and refractive surgery to be an elective procedure, so it is often not covered under basic health or vision plans. Because we feel that finances shouldn’t stand in the way of clearer vision, Monterey Bay Eye Center has developed the following payment options to assist in making corrective surgery as affordable as possible.

CareCredit is here to help you pay for treatments and procedures. CareCredit, North America’s leading financing resource for healthcare expenses, lets you begin your treatment immediately – then pay for it over time with low monthly payments that fit easily into your monthly budget. Now you don’t have to save up for years to finally get the vision you’ve always wanted.
