Cost for keratoconus treatment can vary greatly depending on the best option for the individual patient. Since treatments range from glasses and contact lenses (several hundred dollars) to a corneal transplant (many thousands of dollars) it is difficult to suggest one cost for keratoconus treatment. While cost is certainly an important factor in each person’s decision, as with all vision treatments, it is more important to seek the best possible treatment.
The first step is to undergo a complete eye exam from a corneal specialist, such as Dr. Stephen Turner. This doctor can then advise which treatments offer the highest likelihood for success and which stand the best chance of providing comfortable and usable vision.
Once the best treatment has been determined, the patient can be advised of the cost for keratoconus treatment. Turner Eye Institute has been serving San Francisco and the Bay Area for over 30 years and offers a reasonable cost for keratoconus treatment as well as other forms of refractive surgery, such as LASIK and PRK as well as cataract surgery.
