Cataract cost is usually predetermined by Medicare or other insurance allowance.
Medicare and commercial insurance companies cover the fee for cataract surgery with intraocular lens implants. Patients are responsible for their standard co-pays & deductibles. Also, patients are responsible for the additional cost of upgrading to a lifestyle lens implant. Check with your accountant for tax deductions for the additional cost.
The fee for astigmatism correcting TORIC lens implant is $1200 per eye. The fee for advanced technology lifestyle (presbyopia correcting) lens implant is $2250 per eye.
Payment in full is due on the day of your procedure and can be paid by cash, cashier’s check, money order or credit card. No personal checks please.
