Cataract Lens Implants in Portland, Maine
Patients having cataract surgery and lens implants at Eyecare Medical Group in Portland, Maine will find that there are many types of cataract lens implants, or intraocular lens implants (IOL) that we can use in order to provide you with the best results to match your lifestyle and activities after cataract surgery. These different types of lens implants include: monofocal lens implants which are the most basic type of lens implant and only correct distance vision and not arms length or close reading vision; aspheric lens implants which offer a higher quality of distance vision but still do not correct arms’ length or close reading vision; toric lens implants for those patients with astigmatism; and near vision presbyopia correcting lens implants such as the Crystalens® accommodating lens implant and the Tecnis™ Multifocal lens implant which correct distance vision, as well as arms’ length vision and close reading vision for most patients.
If you decide to have an astigmatism correcting toric lens implant, a near vision presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant or near vision presbyopia correcting accommodating lens implant our staff will make sure to review your questions and fully explain any additional fees related to the lens implant or procedure that you might be responsible for. Medicare and most insurance plans cover the surgical facility fee for cataract surgery and the surgeon fee for cataract surgery, but not the cost of additional testing and the actual advanced technology lens implants. In most cases, Medicare or the insurance provider asks us to bill you for the additional cost of the necessary testing, the lens itself and its implantation. Our staff will be pleased to review any costs as well arrange easy affordable monthly payments to fit your budget, should you decide that these lenses are your best choice.
