Drs. Fine, Hoffman & Sims Opthalmologists in Eugene Oregon

IMPLANTABLE COLLAMER LENS — FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Medicare and health insurance organizations do not pay for the Implantable Collamer Lens procedure. Neither do most insurance companies. Drs. Fine, Hoffman and Sims charge a single combined fee for their services.

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.

Commonly Asked Questions:
How soon after surgery will I see well?

Most ICL patients see quick, dramatic improvements in their eyesight, with 80 - 90% of their vision restored within the first 24 hours. Additional gradual improvements will continue during the first few weeks.

Will refractive surgery hurt?
During the procedure, a strong topical anesthetic is used to numb the eye. Generally, only pressure is felt during the procedure.

Will I still need my glasses or contacts?
The goal of refractive surgery is to reduce your dependence on glasses and/or contact lenses, but ICL patients still may benefit from reading glasses or distance glasses when they desire perfect near or distance vision.

Will my insurance cover ICL?
Most health care coverage
considers ICL surgery an elective surgical procedure and does not cover it.
