Financing options and fiscal deductibility

Utilize medipay: From now on, it is possible to pay treatment costs comfortably and with low interest in monthly instalments – with the Medipay patient´s partial payment! According to your individual possibilities you yourself can chose duration and monthly instalments.

If you pay for example for a SMILE intervention in six monthly instalments, financing is free of interests and free of charge.
Click on the Medipay – button for viewing the application form for a non-binding financial offer.

Use the possibility of fiscal deductibility
Eye laser treatment or eye surgery is fiscally deductible as extraordinary burden. In 2006 the financial administration voted regarding fiscal treatment of expenses for interventions in the field of refractive surgery. Starting point for this decision was the question if for fiscal consideration a doctor´s certificate, issued prior to surgery, should be requested. The decision is unequivocal: taxpayers that undergo refractive eye surgery always suffer from a defective vision and therefore from a disease.


Thus surgery constitutes a therapy with a scientifically proven surgical method.
Costs for this surgery should be regarded as an extraordinary burden without the presentation of a doctor´s certificate. (Source: Oberfinanzdirektion Koblenz, 22.06.2006 (S 2284 A – St 32 3).

The above explanation constitutes a non-binding notice and does not replace legal or fiscal consultation.
