Cost of Lens Implant Surgery in Illinois

Lens implant surgery can be performed for various purposes. A lens implant is like a contact lens that is permanently inserted into the eye rather than temporarily placed on top of it. Lens implants are most commonly used for cataract surgery patients. Cataracts cause cloudiness on the lens of the eye that makes it difficult to see clearly. Cataract surgery usually involves removal of the clouded lens and insertion of a lens implant that will improve the patient's vision. There are many different types of lens implants. Some must still be used with glasses while others completely correct vision.

Lens implant surgery can also be done electively as a way to correct one's vision. Patients who are not eligible for LASIK surgery, or are not interested in this form of laser vision correction, may opt for a lens implant that is like a permanent contact lens. When you're considering the cost of lens implant surgery in Illinois it's important to make the distinction between implants that are medically necessary as part of cataract surgery and those that are elective. Elective lens implants will not be covered by insurance companies, so the patient must pay for these out of pocket.

The cost of basic lens implant surgery in Illinois for patients who are electing to have an implant for vision correction is between $1,500 and $3,000. This is the price per eye. The exact cost will depend upon the patient's vision and the specific type of implant that is used. Premium lens implants can be much more expensive, in the range of $4,000 to $5,000 per eye. Patients who are having a lens implant done as part of cataract surgery may have the entire cost of the procedure covered by their insurance plan. It's important to consult with your insurance provider and find out what is covered.

Lens implant surgery in Illinois is an outpatient procedure. A small incision is made in the side of the eye and the lens is inserted. Though patients should experience minimal discomfort and a quick recovery, they must have someone available to drive them home from the procedure. Lens implants are usually done one eye at a time so the patient has time to adjust to each lens individually. It can take a few weeks for the eye to adjust to the change in vision completely. Your ophthalmologist will probably want to wait and schedule the second eye after assessing how quickly you're able to adjust to the first implant.
