Matthew Russell provides an overview of laser cataract surgery costs
The cost of laser cataract surgery in Australia is dependent on your location and your level of health cover.
The good news is, Medicare coverage and payment for cataract surgery are the same irrespective of whether we perform the surgery using conventional surgical techniques or a bladeless laser approach. Under either method, Medicare will cover and pay for the cataract removal and insertion of a conventional intraocular lens.
For premium lenses that provide a greater range of vision, you will incur further expenses. We call these out-of-pocket expenses.
At OKKO, out-of-pocket expenses are between $1300 and $1700, depending on your health fund. The price excludes the anaesthetist’s fee but includes follow-up for six months.
