Hello and thanks for your question. Many contact lens wearers such as yourself are interested in LASIK to be able to get out of the contact lenses. LASIK surgery, depending on what surgeon you go to, can cost anywhere from approximately $1000 to several thousand per eye, so it is not for the financially faint of heart. Here are a couple of LASIK surgeons in Flagstaff, AZ you can contact:

However, I think it is important to know that if you are having dry eyes with contact lenses, this dry eye problem can also make it difficult to have a successful outcome with LASIK surgery, and often times can get worse with the surgery. It would be important to have a thorough evaluation with a refractive surgeon who would address this issue to make sure you are an appropriate candidate, and if you are, to make sure this was thoroughly and appropriately treated prior to the surgery.

Does that make sense and does that help address your concerns?
