Affording Better Vision 

If you want better vision, our team at Great Plains Eye Specialistsdoesn’t want cost to stand in your way. Some vision correction surgeries are not covered by insurance because they are considered elective surgeries; however, we have several recommendations to help make better vision an attainable goal for your budget: 

  • Financing
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Tax refunds
  • Credit cards


We offer 0% financing through CareCredit® and ALPHEON® Credit. If you qualify, you can have your surgery with no money down and pay for it over time. We can help you fill out and submit your credit request and have an answer in minutes without affecting your credit report in any way.

  • 0% interest financing
  • Longer term financing options with low interest rates
  • Low monthly payments 
  • No pre-payment penalties

Flexible Spending Accounts

If you have access to a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, you may be able to set aside pre-tax earnings to save for your surgery and ultimately end up spending less on the overall cost. There are restrictions with these plans regarding the timeframe when the money must be used, so make sure you know all of the specific rules of your plan before enrolling. It is also advised to have a Consultation or Evaluation with us prior to enrolling to ensure your eyes are right for the surgery and you know how much it will cost. You don’t want to under- or over-save and end up losing money. 

Tax Refunds

Applying your tax refund toward your surgery can be a smart use of this “found” money. Rather than spending it on vacations, electronics or shopping sprees, you will be putting that money toward improving your quality of life through vision correction.  

Credit Cards

We accept the following credit cards: 

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover

We also accept cash, cashier’s checks and personal checks.
