How Much Does Cataract Surgery Cost?
What you should expect to pay for cataract surgery depends on your insurance, the type of lens implant that you choose, and the complexity of your vision problems.
There are major differences between health insurance systems and policies around the world. Many countries have universal healthcare policies in place. In countries without universal healthcare coverage, health insurance is commonly included in employer benefit packages. Contact your insurance company for more information about your healthcare coverage for the treatment of cataract.
Also, the type of lens implant influences the costs of cataract treatment. There are two basic categories of lenses: standard monofocal lenses and premium toric and multifocal lenses. If you would like to be less dependent on glasses after cataract surgery, you can choose to have surgery with premium lenses. In many cases, you will have to pay an added cost yourself for premium lenses.
Your ophthalmologist will help you to decide on the best lens model, based on pre-op measurements and your personal vision objectives.
