Lifetime of Care Policy
At Joffe Custom LASIK, we are committed to providing safe and effective technology to every patient. Additionally, we want to educate our patients about LASIK, the process and our technology so they feel comfortable in taking the next step with Custom LASIK.
At Joffe, we are proud to offer our patients advanced Custom LASIK technology and experienced doctors. We are honored to have had the chance to transform thousands of lives through Custom LASIK and proud to “stand behind our work” through the Joffe Lifetime of Care Plan.
Our customers always come first, and this policy ensures that Joffe will be with you every step of the way after treatment. Our Lifetime of Care Policy includes:
Multiple follow-up visits with our experienced doctors come standard with every treatment, there is no additional cost. This allows us to closely monitor the healing process and get you on your way to enjoying your new LASIK vision.
On-going access for vision issues related to your Joffe treatment
If you have an issue with your vision related to your Joffe LASIK eye surgery, said simply, “we are with you”. Even following your successful release of care, you can call our medical staff and they will help you understand the best course of action. We know and sincerely appreciate that you trusted us with an important investment in your eyes, and we are committed to you.
When reviewing enhancement plans, it is important to understand the chance you will need an enhancement and what you are actually paying for.
- Generally speaking, 5% to 10% of LASIK patients need an enhancement, and 90% of those are done within the first 3 to 6 months after initial treatment. That means that your chance of having an enhancement outside of the first 6 month period is about .5% to 1%. Also, the chance of you having two enhancements is very, very small.
At Joffe, we are proud to cover every patient for the first 18 months after treatment provided they have their annual exam (12 months after treatment). This gives our patients the benefit of absolutely free enhancements during that time period! As you will note above, the 18 month period should cover 99% of patients who should ever need an enhancement. In the off-chance you should need an enhancement after the first 18 months, we will work with you to develop that plan with a cost of only $495.
Many other LASIK clinics will offer a “lifetime” enhancement plan as an added benefit of having treatment with them for over $2,000 per eye. Remember, a wise man once said, “there is no such thing as a free lunch”, and we believe him.
Essentially, they are including the cost of their “lifetime enhancement plans” in every patients’ cost of treatment (even though there is about a 1% chance you will need an enhancement after one year).
At Joffe, we won’t make you purchase an extended enhancement plan that you will most likely never use. That is why we cover you for 18 months, and only charge a minimal cost to the very few who need one after. That is part of our commitment to providing the best value in the market for Custom LASIK and keeping our costs as low as possible.
