Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery in Newark, DE
As the premier location for laser assisted cataract surgery in Newark, DE, Eye Care of Delaware has a strong focus on patient comfort, safety and satisfaction above all else.
Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery Procedure
Dr. Jeffrey Boyd implements laser assisted cataract surgery to create limbal relaxing incisions to reduce astigmatism and corneal imperfections. During the cataract evaluation, Dr. Boyd will create a custom vision plan that’s unique to each eye to achieve the best overall vision after cataract surgery. Either type of procedure can be effective when performed by a skilled surgeon like those at Eye Care of Delaware, but laser-assisted cataract surgery procedures are generally more predictable and precise. Laser cataract surgery technology can automate certain steps during the procedure with laser precision.
Cost of Laser Cataract Surgery
Laser cataract surgery costs depend on where you live, who performs your surgery, and the type of replacement lens, known as an intraocular lens (IOL), you choose. Medicare and private insurance often cover at least a portion of the costs when you choose a monofocal IOL. Advanced technology lenses — such as Tecnis Smyfony® depth of focus, AcrySof®IQ ReSTOR® multifocal IOLs and AcrySof® IQ Toric astigmatism-correcting IOLs— are typically not fully covered. However, the additional visual benefits that advanced technology lenses can provide make them worth the investment for many patients. Be sure to ask about your payment options.
