As of 2013, the cost of a cataract surgery ranges between $3,230 to $4,350 per eye, states AllAboutVision.com. The cost depends on several factors, including the type of procedure and the intraocular lens a patient gets.
Fortunately, many patients enjoy reduced out-of-pocket costs because health insurance plans such as Medicare cover some parts of the surgery, notes AllAboutVision.com. For example, implantation of a standard monofocal IOL is medically necessary, so many policies pay for it. Patients who need a presbyopia-correcting lens and other premium services are likely to have high out-of-pocket costs. Typically, the overall cost of the procedure depends on the services that a patient wants.
