Lens Implant Surgery in Tennessee - Cost of Lens Implant Surgery in Tennessee

There are two main types of lens implant surgery in Tennessee, medically necessary and elective. Lens implants performed for cataract patients who have lost vision due to the disease are typically considered medically necessary. Because of this, they are covered by most medical insurance policies, including Medicare and private health insurance plans. However, lens implant surgery is also performed as an elective vision correction surgery, especially in patients who are not good candidates for LASIK or other laser vision correction procedures. In these cases, it is not covered by Medicare, and it is usually not covered by private health insurance policies.

When you choose to have lens implant surgery in Tennessee for cataracts without insurance coverage, you should expect to pay around $5,000 to $10,000 per eye. The wide range is usually due to the facility fees. Lens implant surgery can be performed in outpatient facilities (at a much cheaper cost) or in the hospital (doubling the price). However, with insurance coverage, patients typically have to pay only ten to twenty percent of the entire cost, making the average patient responsibility $1,000. Another factor which greatly impacts the cost of a lens implant procedure is the type of lens implanted.

When you have lens implant surgery in Tennessee for vision correction, it is also called an intraocular lens (IOL) implant. IOL implant surgery is much less expensive, ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 per eye. However, there are basic monofocal IOL's and, there are custom lens available. The price goes up dramatically for custom IOL's, such as those which have multifocal points to correct presbyopia or those with UV protection. The common brand names for these lenses include ReSTOR, ReZoom and CrystaLens

During lens replacement surgery, the patient is awake and aware, but the eyes are numbed with anesthetic eye drops. The surgery only requires a very small incision site and stitches are not necessary. The recovery period is a few weeks, typically, and a follow up visit is required to check healing. When comparing the cost of lens implant surgery in Tennessee, there will be more choices in the larger towns and cities, such as Nashville, Knoxville, and Memphis. Each price quote may include or leave out certain items. It is a good idea to ask about surgeon fees, facility fees, nursing care, medications, after care, and anesthesia fees so the comparison is more accurate between the different costs of IOL replacement.
