How Much Does Cataract Surgery Cost?

While your vision is invaluable, cost is an important factor when considering cataract surgery. As a patient, you deserve to have every bit of information about the expenses involved in your treatment so that you can make the most educated decisions possible regarding your ocular health. At Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists, surgeons Jeffrey A. Sheridan and Craig D. Fishman will gladly answer any questions you have about cataract surgery cost. After a consultation at one of our convenient locations in Eustis, Clermont, and Leesburg, FL, we can provide a personalized cost estimate based on your unique needs. The final cost of cataract surgery depends on a range of factors, including your insurance plan and the technology used to perform your procedure.

Understanding Your Out-of-Pocket Expenses

For most patients, Medicare or their private medical insurance will cover the basic costs of cataract surgery. However, advanced technology such as premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) or laser-assisted surgery may not be covered.

Generally, any aspect of your procedure that is not considered medically necessary will probably not be covered by your insurance plan. The definition of "medically necessary" may vary between insurance providers. There are a variety of factors that can affect your out-of-pocket expenses.

Your Choice of IOL

There is a wide range of intraocular lenses available. For most patients, a standard monofocal IOL is sufficient to replace your natural lens and restore your sight after cataract surgery. This type of IOL typically provides good distance vision. However, you will most likely need reading glasses. In addition, monofocal IOLs do not correct for astigmatism. If you are struggling with cataracts, our team can help you regain focus.

At Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists, we offer many other types of IOLs that can minimize or eliminate the need for glasses. These more advanced lenses can allow for clearer sight. Multifocal intraocular lens as well as intraocular lens to correct astigmatism are available. However, insurance rarely covers the entire cost of premium IOLs.

Other Factors That Affect Cost

In addition to the technology used, other factors can affect your final cost of treatment, such as:

  • Where your procedure is performed: Most of our procedures are performed in local ambulatory eye surgery centers, saving you on hospital fees and making your procedure more convenient.
  • Your surgeon’s skill: Each of our doctors has been practicing for over 20 years. They have the skills and training to perform effective cataract surgery. While less experienced doctors may offer lower prices, you are much more likely to achieve the results you desire under the care of one of our highly trained professionals.
  • Pre- and post-operative visits: The number of times you visit our office before your procedure and during recovery will depend on your health and your ability to heal after surgery.
  • Post-op medication: We may provide medication after your procedure to reduce your risk of infection and control pain. These prescriptions may affect the final cost of your treatment.

Our staff can discuss all the factors that impact cataract surgery cost with you during a consultation and provide you with a customized estimate based on your preferences and ocular health.
