How much does cataract surgery cost in Melbourne

Cataract surgery costs depend on your health insurance and the rebate from the health insurance for cataract surgery – that’s different for every health insurance. The best way to find out is to come in for an assessment, and we’ll see if you would benefit from cataract surgery. From here, we can work out exactly what your out of pocket costs will be.

If you’re uninsured, that’s fine too. Cataract surgery costs approximately three to three and a half thousand dollars per eye, depending on which intraocular lens you have. So if you have a multifocal lens or toric intraocular lens, they tend to be a little bit more expensive. However, the only way to find out the exact cost is if you come in for an assessment.
