Like Free Money

Think of it as a Lasik Groupon that you don't need to pay to get! The nonprofit USAEyes is providing $1,500 toward Lasik for select individuals. The funds are a grant, not a loan. The recipient is not required to repay the funds. The money is applied to the first $1,500 of charges for services related to Lasik, including exams and testing.

General Requirements

Some grant recipients will be asked to complete the USAEyes Competence Opinion Relative to Expectation (CORE) patient survey after their Lasik recovery. Funds apply only to procedures required for bilateral blade-free all-Laser wavefront Lasik including evaluative tests and exams. A recipient who starts the process and is later determined to not be an appropriate surgery candidate, or elects to not have Lasik, will not be required to repay the portion of the grant already applied. Not all applicants will receive the grant. USAEyes is the final arbiter of who is provided grant funds. The offer may be withdrawn at any time without prior notification.
