A number of variables play into the final cost of cataract surgery. These factors include the severity of your cataracts, the type of lens being used, geographic location, surgeon, length of post-surgery care, insurance coverage, and more. On average though, you can plan on your cataract surgery costing around $3,500 to $3,900 per eye before insurance. With insurance, the cost will vary slightly depending on your provider, but generally, the out of pocket costs are nominal.
At Broberg Eye Care, it is important for us to provide excellent services that are accessible to everyone. Because of this, you will find that the cost of cataract surgery at Broberg Eye Care is in line with the average cost you will find at other ophthalmology practices.
Insurance Coverage for Cataract Surgery
For most individuals, cataract surgery is covered by insurance; however, there are always exceptions. Oftentimes, insurance covers the surgery itself, but it does not cover other services, such as screening tests, eye exams, anesthesia, post-op care, prescription glasses, etc. At Broberg Eye Care, we are committed to working with you to find the best payment plan for your cataract surgery. We will help you find out how much and what insurance covers, what your out-of-pocket total will be and what payment options you have.
Types of Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) for Cataract Surgery
The type of lens used to treat cataracts will also affect the cost of surgery. Monofocal IOLs are the traditional choice for cataract surgery. Multifocal IOLs are typically more expensive than monofocals, but they allow many patients to go without glasses or contacts after surgery. Finally, toric IOLs are specifically for patients with astigmatism. As an advanced IOL, they typically cost the most. Learn more about the different types of intraocular lenses.
