Most health insurance plans will cover at least a part of the cost
of a cornea transplant; the amount varies depending on the health plan.
Charges for the preoperative exam and computerized corneal topography are not included in the surgical fee. As a courtesy we will bill your insurance. Any charges remaining after billing the insurance for vision benefits will be the patient’s responsibility.
Surgical fee includes the surgery and post-operative care for up to one year. Post-operative services include a 1-day check and assessments at 1-2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year. The fee does not cover the cost of glasses or contact lenses, the cost of punctal plugs, or the cost of certain medications. You will be responsible for paying the fee before services are provided.
Financing is available to most patients; please ask for details. Should
you require financing, please remember that authorization of financing
must be received in the office one day prior to your surgery.
