The Cost of Lens Implant Surgery in Connecticut

A lens implant is done to replace the natural lens that sit behind the iris in your eye. The job of the lens is to refract light rays into the back of the eye onto the retina. When the lens can no longer perform this function as it needs to, surgery may be in order. The lens doctors' place inside the eye is usually made of acrylic or silicone and last the entirety of your life. There are many different types of lenses and your doctor will help you determine which lens is right for you, including whether the lens will be standard or premium.

The standard lens makes correction for only one vision range, either far off or near, but not for both. While improving upon your vision, patients may still need to use eyeglasses in some instances. Premium lens implants, on the other hand will correct for better vision in both the long and near ranges, requiring less, if any, use of eyeglasses in the future. Bifocal lens implants are available for those who are eligible and provide excellent all around vision for both distant and near sight, making activities that were once impossible possible again. It also provides freedom from the glasses and contacts you are tired of wearing.

When it comes to the cost of lens implant surgery in Connecticut, prices may vary from clinic to clinic, based on varied charges by individual surgeons, and other charges beyond the actual surgery itself. However, in general, the cost of lens implant surgery can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000 per eye. Standard lenses, cataract surgery, and anesthesia are all covered by most insurances, but should you want or need the premium lens implant, it will not be covered by Medicare or any other health insurance and becomes an expense the patient must cover on their own. It's important to talk with several clinics to find out what they charge and what additional fees may add up, if additional procedures are required.

Some clinics will give patients 0% interest rates, base payments on your monthly income, or require no money down. If you do decide on premium lenses, you can consult with your doctor to decide which lens suits your needs. Factors include eye health and your lifestyle, and your daily activities. Some lenses will reduce or eliminate the need for using eyeglasses, such as for reading. A lens like ReSTOR actually brings the near vision focal point up 16 inches to your eye, typically known as "reading vision". No matter which IOL you end up with, the improved vision will be well worth the surgery and short recovery time you need to have it.
