Custom Cataract Surgery
Many patients qualify for custom cataract surgery with access to several additional options if they wish to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Custom cataract surgery includes advanced testing and technology, and provides additional benefits by using advanced technology IOLs. These specialty IOLs enhance vision and usually decrease dependence on glasses (see table above). Custom cataract surgery helps to reduce or eliminate astigmatism and presbyopia, the conditions, or refractive errors, that remain following standard cataract surgery. Custom cataract surgery is also a great option for those who have had previous LASIK, PRK, or RK surgery. It is important to note that Medicare and most major insurance companies will cover the cataract surgery, but they do not cover the additional expense of advanced technology IOLs or premium testing for custom cataract surgery. Our surgical coordinators can review a patient’s insurance coverage, out of pocket expenses, and review financing options if they are found to be a good candidate for custom cataract surgery.
