How Much Should I Expect the Cost of Cataract Surgery to Be?

Reviewed by: Jason Jacobs, M.D. and Leslie Doctor, M.D.

Most private insurance as well as Medicare cover the cost of Cataract Surgery including the Cataract Surgeon’s fee, the fee for the use of the surgery facility-or “facility fee”, the cost of a basic monofocal lens implant and the necessary follow up care that you will need within 3 months or so after your surgery. They do not cover deductibles, copayments or the cost of many of the advanced technology lens implants used to correct astigmatism or near vision after Cataract Surgery.
