If cataract disease is beginning to affect your everyday life, surgery offers the only effective cure. The cost of cataract surgery is affected by several factors. Fortunately, Dr. Thomas Byrd in Downriver Detroit, MI, has decades of experience performing these procedures and offers several different options to help make cataract surgery affordable.
Depending on your unique goals and financial needs, Dr. Byrd can utilize traditional or laser techniques to incise your cornea and remove your damaged lens. In addition, we offer a full suite of intraocular lenses (IOLs) to restore your eyesight. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Byrd, reach out to our practice today.
After performing a traditional cataract surgery, Dr. Thomas Byrd will replace your damaged crystalline lens with a monofocal IOL, which will allow you to focus at a single distance. The cost of this standard procedure is typically covered by insurance (subject to your copays and deductibles), making it our most affordable option.
Upgrading to laser cataract surgery has a cost of $995 per eye, and this includes the placement of a standard monofocal IOL. During this procedure, Dr. Byrd can also use advanced surgical techniques to correct astigmatism with the laser as well as treating cataracts.
Patients undergoing laser cataract surgery with Dr. Byrd have the option to select a premium multifocal or toric IOL for an additional cost on top of the $995 laser surgery fee. Unlike monofocal IOLs, multifocal types allow patients to see at a range of distances while toric IOLs are designed for those with higher amounts of astigmatism. We currently offer four different premium IOLs:
These prices are for a single eye. Dr. Byrd can explain the unique features of each type of premium IOL during a personal consultation.
