How Much Does Cataract Surgery Cost?
In most cases, the cost of cataract surgery is covered by Medicare or private medical insurance. However, if you choose a premium IOL or laser-assisted cataract surgery, it's likely there will be out-of-pocket expenses as well.
If you are not eligible for Medicare and you don't have private medical insurance, the cost of cataract surgery can vary depending on where you live, what type of procedure you get and the technology you and your surgeon choose.
According to recent research commissioned by AllAboutVision.com, the average cost of cataract surgery performed in the United States is about $3,450 per eye. If you choose a premium multifocal IOL and/or laser-assisted cataract surgery, however, the cost can be closer to $4,600 per eye.3
Many cataract surgeons offer financing options for expenses not covered by your insurance.
