Making Cataract Surgery Affordable

You may be wondering about the cost of cataract eye surgery – it’s a consideration for all cataract patients. Regardless of cost, cataract surgery is important because it prevents vision loss. And because cataracts cannot be prevented, medical insurance, including Medicare, typically does cover cataract surgery, though there are some important considerations:

  • Timing

    When choosing to undergo cataract surgery, your insurer considers the status, or maturity, of your cataracts. It’s important to know if your insurance policy covers costs any time or just when cataracts interfere with your ability to work or perform daily tasks.

  • Lens Choice

    Insurance coverage and the cataract surgery cost depends on the type of intraocular lens (IOL) you choose. There are numerous options of IOL and your choice can depend on your vision goals following surgery.

  • Surgical Technique

    Insurance companies may not cover techniques such as laser incisions. These advanced techniques can offer improved intraoperative precision and quicker recovery times but do come at an increased fee that is not always covered by insurance.
