Cataract Surgery Costs
Cataracts are common after the age of 65 but can develop earlier. The natural lens inside your eye ages & goes cloudy which blurs your vision & even glasses don’t clear your vision. Driving at night can become difficult because of so much glare from car headlights. You struggle to read & see the TV clearly even with glasses. And your blurred, dull vision can get you down. Cataracts can also affect your quality of life & enjoyment of life & worsen insomnia, depression & dementia.
The good news is that a quick, painless cataract surgery operation that is remarkably safe can correct the problems caused by cataracts. Cataract surgery can even rejuvenate your vision so that you don’t need glasses for driving or reading afterwards.
There are different types of intraocular lens implant (IOL). We perform standard cataract surgery with monofocal IOLs which improves your distance vision & you will need glasses to read & see nearby. And we do advanced cataract surgery with multifocal IOLs which can rejuvenate your vison to give you near & distant vision again. Or we can use toric lenses to correct astigmatism. The best lens for you depends on your specific circumstances.

For this fee you will receive:
- High tech lens IOLs chosen for you & considering your personal lifestyle & needs.

The cost of the cataract surgery may seem high, but the surgery is done by an experienced surgeon & team. And another important consideration is how much time you’ll spend with your surgeon. In most clinics, & especially in the NHS, most if not all of your assessment, preoperative consultation & follow up appointments will not be done by your surgeon. In fact very little of your journey will be with a surgeon or even with the same clinician.
With us, your preoperative consultation & follow up appointments will be with Dr Mark Wevill. He is a highly experienced lens replacement & cataract surgery surgeon who has done thousands of cataract surgeries, has achieved additional qualifications in vision correction surgery & has written textbook chapters & articles which other surgeons refer to. Many other surgeons, doctors, optometrists & nurses have also trusted him to do their surgery.
You can read about the different vision correction treatments we offer & we will discuss the best solution for you.
