Home Cataracts Cost of Cataract Surgery

How Much Is Cataract Surgery?

The average cost of this procedure will vary. The majority of patients who require cataract surgery will be covered by either private insurance or Medicare coverage. Of course, in both cases, you’ll need to have met both your deductible and copay for the insurance to kick in so there may be an out of pocket cost. When private insurance and Medicare are not options, employer insurance (usually a flexible spending account) may help you pay for your cataract surgery.

Cataract eye surgery can correct vision problems like a refractive error (near and farsightedness) and reduce the need for contact lenses or glasses. This surgical procedure helps restore clear vision for cataract patients. Cataract surgery is influenced by three main factors:

  • Symptom Severity Timing
    Symptom Severity

    Some insurance companies may decline coverage if the cataracts have not fully developed. It’s important to know if your insurance covers costs any time or just when cataracts interfere with your ability to work or perform daily tasks.

    Insurance coverage and the cataract surgery cost depends on the type of intraocular lens (IOL) you choose. There are numerous options of IOL and your choice can depend on your vision goals following surgery.

    Advanced techniques like laser cataract surgery (also called laser-assisted cataract surgery) can offer more customized treatment and improve visual outcomes, though they may not be covered by insurance.

The Vision You Deserve

Because the cost of cataract surgery depends on your insurance plan, copays, and deductibles, it’s difficult to provide an accurate range. At Kleiman Evangelista out-of-pocket upgrade costs can range from $1,950/eye to $4,200/eye. Kleiman Evangelista’s team of highly-skilled surgeons uses the latest technology to ensure your safety, comfort, and results.

The team at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers of Texas is committed to helping everyone achieve the vision they deserve. If your insurance doesn’t cover the full balance of your procedure, we’ll work with you to craft a payment plan that fits your monthly budget.  To do that, we offer financing (subject to credit approval) through CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit. We also accepts HSAs and FSAs. You can learn more about our payment plans and options here. During your consultation, our team of surgical counselors will help you figure out what your insurance policy covers, what payment options are available, and how to make cataract surgery as affordable as possible.
