At The Eye Clinic of Texas our cataract surgeons can help you choose from a number of types of intraocular lens implants (IOL) to not only correct your vision but also provide the best results to match your lifestyle and activities after cataract surgery. The simplest of these different types of lens implants include monofocal lens implants which are the most basic type of lens implant and only correct distance vision and not arms length or close reading vision or even astigmatism. For most patients choosing a toric astigmatism correcting lens implant or even a near vision presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant such as the AcrySof® ReSTOR® can correct astigmatism as well as distance vision, arms’ length vision and close reading vision and help patients having cataract surgery achieve freedom from the hassle of being dependent on glasses all of the time.
f you are a good candidate for an astigmatism correcting toric lens implant or a near vision presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant, our staff will make sure to review your questions and fully explain any additional fees related to the lens implant that you might be responsible for. Medicare and most insurance plans cover the surgical facility fee for cataract surgery and the surgical fee for cataract surgery-but not the cost of additional testing and the actual cost of the advanced technology lens implants. In most cases, Medicare or the insurance provider asks The Eye Clinic of Texas to bill you for the additional cost of the necessary testing, the lens itself and its implantation. Our staff will be pleased to review any costs as well arrange easy affordable monthly payments to fit your budget, should you decide that this lens is your best choice.
