Cost of Toric Lens Implants

Question: What is the cost of toric lens implants and do I need a pre cataract surgery exam?

Answer: It is important to understand the detail of the cost of Toric Lens Implants for Cataract Surgery as well as the actual cost itself. First, the cost of Toric Lens Implants is set by each individual Cataract Surgeon. The cost of a Toric Lens Implant should include the direct cost of the implant itself, but also all of the additional testing that might be required to obtain the necessary measurements for precise calculations, as well as to make certain that the Toric Lens Implant will produce the best possible results. The additional testing might include corneal topography, a tear film and dry eye evaluation, corneal thickness measurements, aberrometry and additional types of biometry to confirm measurement accuracy. For the additional services that your Cataract Surgeon will provide to render this care and provide the Toric Lens Implant itself, you should expect to pay an additional out of pocket $1,000-$1,500 per eye on average.
