Insurance considers cataract surgery medically necessary and will provide coverage for surgery on visually significant cataracts with an implantation of a monofocal (single focus) intraocular lens (IOL) implant. Now there are lens options available that can provide more range of focus from distance to near (reading). These “elective” lens implant options are in addition to what insurance will cover with a traditional cataract removal surgery and typically have out-of-pocket fees associated with them.
In addition to a variety of lens options, Chu Vision offers Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery to further improve your vision.
