Without private insurance or Medicare, you can expect an out-of-pocket expense anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000 per eye. In most cases, insurance covers cataract surgery.

Patients are always relieved to find out that our cataract surgeons, the anesthesiologist, and the eye surgery center are all covered. We have a series of options to make the cost of Cataract Surgery less burdensome. When to have your vision procedure should be the question, not how to pay for it.

If you are interested in having Cataract surgery we will need to schedule you for a complete eye exam which may require a combination of tests to gauge not only if you have cataracts, but the severity of the cataracts. Doctors may use further testing beyond this to determine what type of cataract you have. We’re dedicated to making your experience getting Cataract surgery in Suffolk County & Nassau County warm, friendly, and professional.
