CareCredit Logo

Associated Eye Care offers 0% financing for 6, 12, 18 or 24 months*

*On qualifying purchases of $300 or more made with your CareCredit health, wellness and beauty credit card account. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional purchase is not paid in full within the promotional period.

Get great vision today. Pay tomorrow.

Imagine living a full and active life with reduced dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Associated Eye Care offers 0% financing for 6, 12, 18 or 24 months on all elective procedures such as LASIK & Advanced Technology lenses through CareCredit. Financing is also available for longer terms if required.

*Under the No Interest Plans, each month you are required to pay the required minimum monthly payment in the column to the left and to avoid interest, the promotional purchase must be paid in full within the promotional period. The amounts in these columns are the amount to be paid if you choose to make equal monthly payments and take advantage of the promotion.

**Estimated monthly payments include interest.
