Preparing for Surgery

Questions for your doctor

Considerations when choosing where to have your cataract procedureMany people with cataracts unnecessarily delay a cataract procedure and better vision because of fear of the risks or of the procedure itself. The most common fear is of needles around the eyes. At Cataract Surgery SA we use very strong drops only - no needles - and sedation to make you relaxed and a little sleepy. Whilst all procedures have risks, modern cataract surgery is very safe.

Types of artificial lenses

When your cataract is removed it is replaced with a small clear plastic lens, without which you would need extremely strong glasses to focus. So all patients receive this plastic lens implant known as an intraocular lens or IOL. 

Cataract Surgery Cost

Cataract Surgery SA understands your eyes are very important to you.Medicare or private health insurance pays for most and sometimes all of the cost of cataract procedures with out of pocket expenses ranging from $0 - $370. If you don't have private health insurance Cataract Surgery SA also caters for self funded cataract surgery which can be discussed at the time of your consultation.There may be additional charges for higher technology tri-focal lens implants.
