Understand Medicare Coverage for Cataract Surgery

June 22, 2018

Cataracts often come with age and can affect your vision. In fact, by age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. New eyeglasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses, or magnifying lenses may help your symptoms. If not, you may need surgery.

If you have cataracts and need cataract surgery, Medicare can help. And after surgery, Medicare helps pay for cataract glasses, contact lenses, or intraocular lenses you get from an ophthalmologist.

Find out more about Medicare cataract surgery coverage at Medicare.gov. And check out the National Eye Institute to learn more about cataracts and eye health.
