Understanding Insurance Coverage for Cataract Surgery
If your medical or vision insurance covers cataract surgery, the costs may be limited to a specific type of replacement lens. If you choose a different type of lens, your out-of-pocket costs will be higher.
What are the Advantages of Multifocal Lenses?
Cataract surgery that is covered under insurance includes the cost of a standard replacement lens. The lens will restore your vision that has been lost due to clouding and loss of flexibility in the natural lens. If you want to combine your cataract surgery with a procedure for vision correction that will eliminate the need for eyeglasses, you may want to consider multifocal lenses. The lenses will cost more out-of-pocket as they are not covered by insurance, but you realize a savings in eyeglasses, reading glasses and contact lenses.
