Lasik eye surgery is done with laser to correct refractive errors, and improve vision. Treatments are done by highly specialized eye surgeons and helps to reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses. This surgery is done all over but cost varies. In Europe this procedure might cost you around $ 5000 while in USA it might cost you $9000. In India this surgery, some private hospitals do Lasik surgery for below INR 30000 or $500. The Zyoptix or the customized LASIK procedure would cost a double the standard LASIK.
