Some people feel more confident about a task ahead once they make a plan. Here are some steps to consider before surgery to help make you feel as comfortable as possible with your next steps.
Cataract surgery costs can depend on many things, like where you live, who performs your surgery, and the type of replacement lens you and your surgeon choose.
Medicare and private insurance often cover some of the costs of a standard lens. Advanced-technology lenses—like astigmatism-correcting lenses (toric IOLs) or multifocal toric lenses—are not covered by insurance.
Choosing a lens for cataract surgery is an important decision. Your new lens will change the way you see the world around you, so you'll want to choose something that's right for you.
Because of this, many people feel that paying extra for an advanced-technology lens is a wise investment. If you’d like to improve your vision and have the chance to see without your glasses but are unsure about costs, talk to your surgeon about payment plans that may be available.
