How Much Does Cataract Surgery Cost?

We understand insurance coverage can be confusing, and we are here to help. We’ve outlined insurance coverages for cataract surgery costs below, and will discuss your personal Medicare or private health insurance coverage with you during your Cataract Evaluation. Dr. Lalin and Dr. Shah will also talk with you to clearly understand your lifestyle & hobbies to recommend the best lens implant choice for you.

The average out-of-pocket cost for cataract surgery can vary based on the recommended treatment plan, so it’s important that you visit us for a consultation. After a thorough exam, and discussion about your personal vision needs, our doctors will recommend the lens implant option(s) best suited for you, with a full breakdown of the costs involved.

Is Cataract Surgery Covered by Insurance?

The short answer is, Yes! If left untreated, cataracts can lead to blindness, therefore cataract eye surgery is a medically necessary procedure, and typically covered by health insurance. Medicare and most private insurance plans will help cover much of your cataract surgery cost. You will be responsible for any co-pay and deductible as determined by your insurance.

A standard, single-focus-point correction will generally be covered by insurance. If you choose presbyopic correction (for fuller range vision after surgery), or astigmatism-correction (to correct the cataract and the out-of-round condition of your eye), you will be responsible for the additional cost associated with that correction. We will discuss these fees with you during your evaluation.
