Home Cataracts Cost of Cataract Surgery

Making Cataract Surgery Affordable

The average cost of cataract surgery will vary. The majority of patients who require cataract surgery will be covered by either private insurance or Medicare coverage. Of course, in both cases, you’ll need to have met both your deductible and copay for the insurance to kick in so there may be an out of pocket cost. There are three main factors to consider when planning for cataract surgery:

  • Clock with check mark
    Symptom Severity

    When considering cataract surgery, your insurer evaluates 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.

    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.

    Advanced techniques like laser cataract surgery (also called laser-assisted cataract surgery) can offer more customized treatment and improve visual outcomes, though they may not be covered by insurance.
