Cataract Surgery Cost
You can make an enquiry to find out the expenses during such an intervention. Whether you’re a private patient or a subsidised patient will make a difference in price.
Depending on the private or public hospital, you will be charged from $1,300 to $4,000 per eye. And if you are enrolling for a premium lens, you will need to cough up anywhere between $4,500 and $6,000.
However, keep in mind that the final price will also include hospital stay, eye surgeon’s fee, and if such is necessary, pre and post-surgery visits, etc. Hence, when you are calculating the amount, you have to take all these factors into account.
Furthermore, medical complications are unlikely to arise, but each body is different and we can never predict its response with 100% certainty. If something like that happens, your treatment will probably take longer, not to mention that will add to the cost.
The amount will depend on the type of equipment used and the need for the involvement of another expert. There is no way to tell the full price upfront because there is no way to tell what will go wrong, if anything, during or after the operation.
