Cataract Surgery in Florida - The Average Cost of Cataract Surgery in Florida

According to the National Eye Institute, more than half of all Americans age 80 and above either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Cataracts are far more common in older people than in younger. Since Florida's population of people over the age of 65 is higher than the national average (17.6% as opposed to 13.3%), there is a higher concentration of cataract sufferers in this state. A cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, obscuring vision. The cost of cataract surgery Florida eye surgeons offer will vary according the specific procedure and practice. Cataracts are also partially covered by Medicare and some health insurance policies.

Cataracts are treated in a number of ways initially, eye drops, specialized glasses, etc., but eventually most cataracts sufferers will have to have surgery. Cataract surgery in Florida involves the removal of the cloudy lens and the implantation of an artificial lens. This procedure, called intraocular lens replacement, safely restores vision to the patient and is very commonly performed. The most basic form of this cataract surgery is monofocal intraocular lens replacement. After this surgery, you may still have to wear reading glasses, but your general vision should be very good. This is the form of cataract surgery that is typically covered by Medicare and other health insurance policies. If you must pay out of pocket, monofocal IOL surgery will likely set you back $1,500 to $3,000 per eye.

In addition to monofocal cataract surgery in Florida, there are also premium presbyopia correcting intraocular lens (PC-IOL) replacement surgery options, which remove the need for any eyeglasses at all. The average cost of cataract surgery Florida surgeons perform in this way is from $3,500 to $5,000 per eye. This procedure is usually not covered by Medicare and other health insurance providers, so this would be entirely out of pocket expense.

There can be a number of extra fees that exist as hidden costs with PC-IOL procedures. When receiving price quotes, it is important to ask what the cost covers and if there are additional expenses. Premium cataract surgery in Florida is not limited or regulated in the same way as monofocal IOL surgery, because it is an elective surgery rather than one covered by insurance (medically necessary). It is wise to ask a number of questions before committing to have the surgery completed at a specific practice. The larger metro areas, such as St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Miami, and Jacksonville, can have lower priced options, because there are more choices and competition.
