My driver's license will be up for renewal next January and I am certain I will not pass the eyesight test without glasses or Lasik surgery. Just before my previous renewal exam in 2008, I had some driving glasses made up as a precaution, and while I barely passed it in 2008 without using them, I am certain I would not pass it this time. I see in some older threads here that other forum members have paid $3,000 to $4,000 for Lasik surgery, but I often hear much lower prices advertised on the radio, so I'm not expecting to pay any more than $2,000, but when I started to search for the lowest local prices, I carne across several comments warning that during the pre-op analysis, many people are told that they do not qualify for the advertised rate and get "upsold" to a more expensive operation. Regrettably, I will probably be legitimately diagnosed to need something more involved than the standard operation because my right eye has developed a slight double image that I only notice when reading small type on my computer screen. I am inclined to go to the same doctor who had checked my sight back in 1998 when it was still 20-20 and see what his prognosis is, and then see if I can use what I learn from that visit to get the best price on that procedure elsewhere. Has anyone here had any experience with a pre-op determining that they would need something more expensive than the standard, commonly discount priced Lasik surgery?
