Multifocal IOL Costs
For the best visual outcomes with multifocal IOLs, the exact placement of the lens inside the eye is critical — even more critical than when a standard monofocal IOL is used.
For this reason, for multifocal and Toric IOL, we use technology that helps us take full advantage of the design of the lens for optimal vision at all distances.We find that using the laser-assisted procedure in addition to the ORA intraoperative aberrometer is the best way to achieve most favorable results. It's also important to understand that Medicare and most vision insurance plans generally will only cover the cost of standard monofocal intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery.
If you choose to upgrade to a multifocal intraocular lens or other advanced technology IOL, you will need to pay the extra costs associated with these premium lenses with your own money. This added "out-of-pocket" expense for advanced cataract surgery can range from $1,500 to $4,000.
