The femtosecond laser
When it comes to starting laser-assisted cataract surgery, the laser itself in the most expensive cost. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars all at once – or dedicating the next five years to paying it off – you can access the laser through Sightpath and start earning a profit immediately.
The maintenance costs
Although the femtosecond laser itself might be the priciest purchase, the costs associated with maintaining the laser are not insignificant. An article in the journal Review of Optometry cites that the laser maintenance costs as anywhere between 25,000 and 50,000 thousand dollars per year. Sightpath Medical is responsible for all maintenance fees and repairs.
