Many people associate cataract surgery with old age and, while getting cataracts are usually related to the amount of candles on our birthday cake, we still see things a little differently at Collins Vision. We also associate cataract surgery with FREEDOM. The potential freedom of a life without the hassle and expense of glasses or contact lenses!
Today’s advancements in cataract surgery allow surgeons to not only remove the cataract (the cloudy lens contributing to one’s blurry, dull vision) but also correct astigmatism, near-sightedness and far-sightedness at the same time using a Premium Intraocular Lens. This is known as Refractive Cataract Surgery, and for our active Southwest Florida residents, it’s a game-changer! Hitting the tennis court without having to worry about fogged-up glasses. Keeping score during a golf game without pulling out your readers. Enjoying an afternoon boat ride and fishing on the gulf spectacle-free. Sound spectacular? If so, now may be the most affordable time to have cataract surgery!
While premium lenses are considered an out-of-pocket expense, maximizing your insurance benefits can allow you to significantly keep your total costs down. As the year comes to an end most of us are either close to, or have already met our annual deductible obligation. Many times, once your deductible has been met, your cataract procedure will be covered by your insurance leaving you only responsible for premium lenses should you choose to be less dependable on glasses.
At Collins Vision, Dr. Collins’ training as a cataract and refractive specialist coupled with his expertise of Premium IOL’s gives him the unique ability to customize each patient’s cataract surgery. During a consultation with Dr. Collins, he will examine your eyes, review findings from a series of diagnostic tests, and discusses post-surgical expectations with you. Based on these factors, he then recommends a treatment plan that is for best for you and the health of your eyes.
We also believe financial considerations should not hinder your desire to obtain your best visual outcomes. If you want to reduce how often you wear eyeglasses but you worry about the affordability of advanced technology, here are some great payment options to keep in mind. Patient financing is a great option that offers you the freedom to budget for your surgery and pay over time. Many patients also use their tax refunds as a means of investing in their vision. And, with the holiday season approaching, experiences are often more valuable than things and the gift of vision is a priceless way to improve your life.
