SCHEDULING YOUR CATARACT PROCEDURE

How can I Arrange to have a Premium Procedure?

If your doctor discussed that you would be a good candidate for a Premium option, you will need to confirm your choice and arrange payment in full at least 3 business days prior to your scheduled procedure.  Please contact our Cataract Coordinator at 201-796-2020.

What does most Insurance cover?

Medicare and most major insurance companies cover the Basic Cataract Procedure, which includes the appropriate pre-cataract measurements, along with removal of your cataract and insertion of a standard monofocal implant.

What do Medicare and Insurance companies NOT cover?

  • Evaluation and correction of your astigmatism
  • The Femtosecond laser to correct your astigmatism
  • Lens implants that have a built-in reading or astigmatism prescription
  • Refractions, measuring of your eye prescription, ORA
  • Co-payments and deductibles, which are payable at time of service

After a thorough eye examination to evaluate the health of your eyes, our physicians and staff can help determine the best option for you considering your needs and budget.

Bring a Family Member or a Friend with you for your Cataract Evaluation

We strongly recommend that you have a family member or a friend accompany you for your initial consultation.  This can be a 3 hour comprehensive visit containing a considerable amount of information regarding the health of your eyes, the various treatment options, and financial considerations.

A Choice that will Last a Lifetime

You will be using your new eyesight every waking moment for the rest of your life.  Please take as much time as needed to consult with us as well as your family.  Our Physicians, Counselors and Coordinators are available to help you make the best decision.
