What are the options for financing my cataract surgery?
Medicare pays for basic cataract surgery that includes a simple lens replacement but that is pretty much it. If your cataract surgeon recommends a different lens that has an additional cost, such as one that fixes astigmatism or vision problems, you’ll be responsible for the charges. Medicare does cover a pair of eyeglasses after the surgery, but you may want to enhance your vision to the point that you won’t require glasses anymore, especially if your vision problems were extreme and can be fixed.
You can put off cataract surgery, but cataract only gets worse over time and are the biggest culprit for vision loss according to the CDC. Besides, don’t you want to get back to enjoying your life as soon as possible – watching movies, playing golf, driving easily at night, spending quality time with loved ones and more? Recovery from cataract surgery is relatively quick and is one of the safest surgeries available.
