Cost of Lens Implant Surgery in Indiana

Today's surgical options for treatment of cataracts or myopia are exceptional, both in their variety and in their efficacy. One of the newest methods is lens implant surgery. This surgery replaces the faulty lens in the eye that is either clouded over or an incorrect shape, and replaces it with a customized and man-made lens that will correct vision. This procedure can be done with either outpatient or hospitalization, and can be under general or local anesthesia. Typically, a patient will have good vision within thirty minutes after surgery, although it may take up to two weeks for a full recovery.

Unfortunately, there are some higher risks associated with lens implant surgery. Infection is the primary concern, since the patient basically will have a foreign object placed in the eye. The lens may rotate, break loose and travel within the eye, or the patient may see halos around objects and lights. However, studies have indicated that, although the risks may be a bit more severe, there are far fewer chances of developing complications when compared with other types of eye correction surgery. The success rate is fairly good, with only 40% of patients needing reading glasses after surgery.

The greatest benefit for those with myopia who have opted for lens implants is that distance vision is typically 20-20 after surgery. Again, the close range vision may require mild reading glasses, but the surgery is generally quite successful. In addition, many types of insurance will help cover the cost of this procedure for cataract treatment. The cost of lens implant surgery in Indiana will vary according to what problem is being treated, the severity of vision impairment and the clinic's prices. A general price range of intraocular lenses usually stays between $1,500 and $3,000 per eye. Vision correction is not usually covered by insurance, however.

Although this may be a very expensive treatment for myopia, people with severe vision impairment may find that it will save them money in the long run. The cost for eyeglasses and contact lenses for those with severe myopia are often very expensive. The surgery options will actually reduce the eventual cost of eye care. For those patients without insurance coverage can usually make payment arrangements with the clinic. It is advised to contact several clinics and set up consultations to discuss cost, risks, procedures and recovery. Indiana has many clinics that are certified to perfume lens implants.
