Traditional and Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery Available

Since 2011, Laser-assisted cataract surgery has been available in Australia. Envision Eye Centre is proud to offer this new technique which can provide more accuracy and reduce chances of infection. Still, this method may not be suitable for all surgeries and the traditional method is still a highly successful procedure.

Cataract Surgery Costs

Cataract surgery is considered a medically necessary surgical procedure and is covered, at least in part, by Medicare.

Most patients need to weigh up their options and consider if they are covered in a private health fund for the cataract number provided by medicare. Patients who decide to go as a private patient have the added advantages of being able to select their surgeon, facility, date of surgery, and the type of refractive lens they wish to proceed with, to allow optimum vision.

There is also the option of going as a public patient through the public health system. However, the wait time is typically 12-18 months and you don’t get access to premium lenses or get to choose your preferred surgeon or type of surgery.

In your first appointment, we will help you to weigh up the pros and cons of public vs private surgery and we can provide you with the costs of your surgery with Envision Eye Centre.
