Patient Financing

Laser Eye Surgery & Vision Correction Financing for our Patients.

Advancements in laser eye surgery (LASIK) allow surgeons greater precision in fine-tuning a patient's vision. Dr. Balin performs vision corrective eye surgery at her state-of-the-art laser suite in Northampton. Most insurances do not cover laser eye surgery.

At Balin Eye & Laser Center we aim to make LASIK possibility for all people of our region. If LASIK pricing and the costs of LASIK have you frustrated please come to talk with us about how we can help. At your LASIK consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss the cost of your procedure and go over a variety of financing and payment options to find the solution that works best for your budget. Our practice is dedicated to bringing improved vision to as many people as we can. That is why we work to make vision correction feasible at our Western, Massachusetts area practice in Northampton. Contact Nancy Balin, MD, FACS, today to learn more.

Flex Spending - LASIK FSA information

Many patients choose to use their Flexible Spending Account (FSA or FLEX PAY) for their LASIK or other vision correction procedures. Please call and speak to one of our pricing specialists about using your FSA/FLEX plan for the procedure.

  • Around 90 percent of US employees work for companies who offer a Flexible Spending Account that allows you to use pretax income on medical expenses not normally covered by medical insurance. Flex Spending Accounts can be used for both traditional LASIK and Wavefront enhanced Custom LASIK.
  • If you are interested in using Flex Spending for LASIK we encourage you to come in for a free consultation with our practice

Please note that the IRS allows pre-tax dollars to be used to pay for refractive surgery, either through a flex care spending account or itemizations on certain individual tax returns. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.

Balin Eye & Laser Center also accepts major credit cards, cash, check, and money orders for payment.  Many patients do choose one of our flexible financing options. So if you are seeking LASIK eye surgery in Massachusetts contact Dr. Balin's LASIK counselors for more information regarding LASIK.
