Cost of Cataract Surgery
How much does cataract surgery cost?
The cost of private cataract surgery depends on the type of lens replacement treatment you have. The cost of the operation varies from £2591 to £3527 depending on the type of lens that you prefer.
Rest assured, all of the lenses are excellent quality lenses. But different lenses have different functions. Lenses may be monofocal, mutifocal or toric lenses and just as one shoe doesn't fit us all, different people have different lens replacement requirements. At your cataract surgery consultation with Mr Wevill, he'll discuss the different options with you, explain which one is best, and why. Together you can decide which lens you prefer.
Here are some of the different types of lens, their advantages and the reasons why one lens may be better suited to you than another:
Monofocal lenses: The least expensive lenses and are good, simple lenses for giving you good distance vision. They are also usually the best lenses for people who have other eye problems such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and problems with the surface of their eyes.
Toric lenses: The best lenses for people who have astigmatism, also known as "rugby ball" shaped eyes.
Multifocal lenses: The best lenses for people who don't want to wear glasses after their cataract surgery, but the health of your eyes is very important if you are to benefit from cataract lens replacement with these lenses. These are more expensive lenses.
Together we'll decide on the best, personalised treatment plan for your eyes to achieve the best quality of life we can for you.
