Discounts with Lasik MD?

Hi , I plan on getting Lasik procedure done at LasikMD in February. The procedure is close to $4000 (“advanced custom wavefront”) minus any applicable discount. I asked the folks there to give me a list of affiliates they give discounts to and they were very tight lipped about it. So far I found Bluecross BlueShield to give you the best discount, which is 10% off or $200 off per eye. I am wondering if anyone know of any other affiliations that will give me a better discount with LasikMD than BlueCross? If you know of any , please post or IM . Thanks!

Just so you are aware, they will probably ask for proof that you do infact work there.

I know Roger's Corporate get a discount at Focus Eye Center. Other than that, I have no idea.

When I got my Lasik done, they were doing a study with their newest technology (zyoptic). Same laser just a different algorithm. So they had a special rate at that time.

Don't do "field tests" on my body for non-critical applications...

Yea, for something I require and use pretty much all the time, I'd rather go with the tried & true method than be on the 'cutting edge' and have to deal with all the kinks they haven't worked out yet.

Hi,

This is a referral discount for 10% off.
How it works is that I need your first and last name and contact phone number. Lasik will call you within 3 days and set an appointment (if you have already done the assessment that is fine) to set up an assessment/surgery date.

Let me know if you need a referral.

Thanks,

Jade, My current membership with GreenSheild will give me 10% off (max $400) but it is soon due for renewal and I am wondering if i want to extend it or not. Does your referral discount have a max? Ie: If my procedure comes out to $5,000 , will i get $500 off?

I wouldn't count out the referral post from thnh_jade. I've had a few friends who've had their surgeries through Lasik MD. They've been told that if they could get referrals then they would get 10% off their procedure along with the other person who the original person referred.
