Why does laser eye surgery cost what it does?

Despite the fact that laser eye surgery can cost the equivalent of 2 pints of beer (8.00 € /day) for a year, some people wonder why it costs what it does.

The diagnostic equipment alone costs around 150-300K to set up.

Then, the laser for the first step of the procedure (the femtosecond laser) costs about 500K, with per-use fees ranging between 350-450 per eye.

Then, there is the typical cost range for the excimer laser (that shapes the eye) between 150.000 at the low end to nearly 450.000 at the high end (we’re on the high end of that for sure).

Then, there is the cost of training an eye surgeon for the job, which usually takes about 18 years – most of it post-graduate.

Then there is the cost of the premisessupport staffinsurance, and other incidentals involved in running a world-class clinic in a major urban centre.

Insurance pricing & tax deduction

The cost of laser eye surgery if you have health insurance

Does my health insurance cover the costs of laser eye surgery at EyeLaser?

The official health insurances like the GKK or SVA do generally not assume the costs of laser eye surgery or lens implants. These insurances only grant medically necessary treatments. This is because they are only obliged to reimburse the costs of medically necessary services.

Except for:

  • Correction of cataracts with a monofocal lens (paid by insurance)
  • Treatment for combined intolerance of spectacles and contact lenses (in some cases)
  • The treatment of very strong visual impairment greater than 10 dioptres and proven contact lens intolerance (in some cases)
  • Treatment in a big difference of more than 3 dioptres in both eyes and proven contact lens intolerance (in some cases)

We can check for these criteria in the ophthalmologic examination and can issue a clinical report.

If the procedure is not or only partially covered by your health insurance, the cost of treatment can normally be deducted as an exceptional expense as part of your income tax return.

Please note that EyeLaser is a private practice (with private doctors) and thus does not provide any treatments covered by medical insurance. However, many private health insurance companies partially or completely cover the costs of treatment. Please liaise with your insurance company about the terms of your coverage before surgery.

Can I write off the taxes of laser eye surgery at EyeLaser?

Yes. The cost of laser eye surgery or lens implants is the same as the cost of spectacles or contact lenses and is deductible as a medical expense.

Current income tax guidelines state: “If an illness is present, visual aids, including laser treatments, are necessary to enhance vision and are tax-deductible.”

In patients undergoing such an operation, there is a defect in vision, and thus an illness is present. Therefore, these costs are usually recognized, even without a medical certificate confirming the procedure’s medical necessity, as an exceptional expense.

Deducting laser eye surgery from the tax

Here’s how: Enter the cost of the eye operation in the column of “medical expenses” in the annual employee tax assessment. You can specify the total cost. But, there is an excess of 6 to 12% of your annual income depending on how high this is. This percentage is reduced by approx. 1% under certain circumstances (single income, single parents etc.).

The Ministry of Finance calculates your excess. The rest of the treatment costs affect tax deductibility.

Exception: If the operation was professionally conditioned and you have a certificate to prove it, you can deduct the full amount.

Find out more about exceptional costs (§ 33 EStG) at the Ministry of Finance. If you are in doubt, please inform yourself about the tax-deductibility of your operating costs.
