Monterey Bay Eye Center believes vision correction greatly enhances our patient’s lives! Can you hike through Big Sur and see the amazing beauty and soaring vistas in all of Mother Nature’s glory? How about traveling the world and taking in the architectural detail of the Taj Mahal or Eifel Tower? Monterey Bay Eye Center is vested in improving your life through vision correction.
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 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.

- Flex Spending Plans: Flexible spending plans can be used to cover the costs of vision correction. Talk to your employer about setting aside money for you to put toward the costs of your surgery. It is a good idea to find out if you are a candidate before making such an election. We offer consultation appointments to make sure you are candidate and get a better idea of how much to set aside.
- Vision Insurance: Some vision plans will cover some or all aspects of your laser eye surgery. Monterey Bay Eye Center can explore specific coverage options for you. Contact our office for details.
- Tax Deductions: The IRS has declared laser eye surgery to be a valid medical expense, thus making it tax deductible.
It is our sincere hope that corrective surgery can be an affordable option for all candidates. Please contact us or feel free to call Christina at: #831.372.1500 with any questions or concerns regarding the payment options at Monterey Bay Eye Center.
