WHAT IS THE COST OF CATARACT SURGERY?
Cataracts are the clouding of the natural lens inside your eye, resulting in blurred vision. Having Cataract Surgery will ensure you see cleary again, often without the need for glasses.
Understanding the investment required for your new clear vision is an important and necessary part of the informed consent process.
The total cost of cataract surgery can be confusing at times and varies on a number of factors that are unique to each person, for example;
- Pre-operative consultations
- Ophthalmic Surgeons fee
- Anaesthetist fee
- Day Hospital theatre
- Recovery fee
- Intraoccular Lens & viscoelastic fee
- Additional technology based on on any special eye health issues such as Glaucoma or Retinal disease and finally
- For insured patients; health fund possible hospital access fee.
