ICON LASIK is the first known eye care, sunglass store, and surgery center to take Bitcoin for payment for products and services. ICON LASIK prides itself in leading the way with the latest FDA approved lasers including the VICTUS, the Allegretto, the NIDEK, and the VISX laser platforms. Now, ICON LASIK is setting the path to alternative payments systems to make getting surgery or buying sunglasses at ICON easier than ever.
The benefits of using Bitcoin include low transactional fees, high protection against fraud, and accounting transparency. Accepting Bitcoin at Icon’s locations helps ICON keep costs low ensuring that surgery, even on the most advanced lasers, is still affordable and within reach of many people. For sunglasses purchases it makes more routine transactions easier for consumers that favor Bitcoin.
