Lens Implant Surgery in Florida - Average Cost of Lens Implant Surgery in Florida

Though the most widely known corrective surgery for vision is LASIK, many people do better with lens implant surgery. This procedure is used for two main reasons. The first is to treat cataracts, and the second is to improve nearsightedness (myopia). Lens implant surgery in Florida is available throughout the state, though it is more readily accessible in larger cities. The average cost of lens implant surgery in Florida is $3,500 per eye. However, costs of lens implants vary according to the type of corrective surgery is being done and the type of lens used.

If you need lens implant surgery in Florida because you have cataracts, the natural crystalline lens of your eye has become cloudy. This cloudiness makes it difficult, if not impossible, to see. During lens replacement surgery, the crystalline lens is removed. An artificial lens, called a pseudophakic lens is implanted, even with the surface of the eye. This procedure is an outpatient surgery that only requires local anesthetic. The patient stays awake, but the eye is numbed so there is no pain during the procedure. It does not even take a half an hour to perform, and the recovery time is two to three weeks.

For basic cataract lens replacement surgery, the average cost of lens implant surgery in Florida is $2,300 to $3,100 per eye. These figures are for basic monofocal lenses to be implanted. If the patient needs special lenses, like Toric for astigmatism or multifocal lenses for presbyopia, the costs will be $1,000 to $3,000 more expensive per eye. However, cataracts are a medical condition. As such, they can be covered by medical insurance, including Medicare. The figures quoted above are for out-of-pocket costs, if a patient does not have insurance. Lens implant surgery in Florida for vision correction is not a medically necessary surgery. As an elective surgery, it is typically not covered by medical insurance or Medicare.

Since there is nothing wrong with the transparency of the natural lens of the eye in nearsighted patients, the artificial lens (a phakic lens in this case) is applied over the natural lens. This changes the eye's optic power, improving vision significantly. The elective intraocular lens (IOL) lens implant involves about $1,500 to $3,000 in cost. Naturally, if you have to have specialized lenses for astigmatism or presbyopia, the cost will be higher in this case as well. Finding reliable lens implant surgery in Florida requires a little bit of research on the doctor credentials and experience in addition to the costs.
