At NeoVision Eye Center, we believe the fairest approach is to offer cataract surgery for one Flat Fee. That is why we offer one global comprehensive fee, which includes all pre-operative, surgical, and post-operative care. A price estimate will be given at your consultation for cataract surgery. Fees reflect the specific problem that you have and the extent of surgery to correct it
Cataract surgery is a highly successful procedure. Over 95% of patients experience improved vision, unless there is a problem with the cornea, retina, optic nerve or other structures.
We see all surgery patients one day after the surgery. Further follow-up will depend upon your individual condition and schedule. Dr. Tandon will be available to see you in the office, if necessary. There is no charge for future visits after surgery.
You can quickly return to many everyday activities, but your vision may be blurry. The healing eye needs time to adjust so that it can focus properly with the other eye, especially if the other eye has a cataract. Ask your doctor when you can resume driving.
If you just received an IOL, you may notice that colors are very bright or have a blue tinge. Also, if you’ve been in bright sunlight, everything may be reddish for a few hours. If you see these color tinges, it is because your lens is clear and no longer cloudy. Within a few months after receiving an IOL, these colors should go away. And when you have healed, you will probably need new glasses.
Dr. Tandon will meet with you, examine you, and discuss all the possible complications, answer all of your questions, and perform the surgery. Dr. Tandon, MD, PhD is a trained eye physician and surgeon from Stanford University. She is a Certified by American Board of Ophthalmology.
Cataract surgery and lens implantation are intended to restore your vision to normal, minimizing your dependence on glasses / contacts. Although many patients are able to function without glasses, most patients will find that they need glasses for near vision (reading and close-up work), distant vision, or both after cataract surgery.
Most of these operations are covered by insurance. If cataract is interfering in your field of vision, the procedure may be covered as a “medically necessary” surgery and some insurance plans will pay for all or part of the surgery. You should check with your insurance carrier about the coverage.
Use Pre-Tax Dollars to Save Up to 30% Off the Cost of Cataract Surgery
Advanced Cataract Surgery fees can be covered by medical flex / cafeteria plans that allow pretax dollars to be set aside.
We encourage you to explore if a medical reimbursement account is offered through your employer. This is a popular way to help offset the costs of your procedure. Money set aside in a medical reimbursement account can often be a significant pre-tax savings. Laser vision correction fees are generally tax-deductible as a medical expense.
