The best way to find out exactly what your price will be is to schedule an exam. After a comprehensive evaluation to determine what procedures you're a candidate for and what degree of correction you need, you may meet with Allison Alexander, our Refractive Coordinator, who will be able to give you a specific price.

A few insurance companies do pay for all or part of vision correction procedures. You can check with your plan administrator, or we will be happy to make a copy of your insurance card and check coverage for you. Many people have medical flex plans they use to save up to 50 percent on their procedure by using pre-tax dollars.

LENSX - With the use of a computerized laser,
cataract surgery just got better!

For patients who are candidates, the latest technology for cataract surgery allows our doctors to useLensx a surgical laser, called LENSX, for specific segments of the procedure to make cataract surgery more accurate than ever before. This laser system creates incisions without a blade so that the capsulotomy, primary incisions and even astigmatism incisions can be created more precisely.

Not everyone is a candidate for LENSX. Patients with small pupils, glaucoma, corneal disease and small eyes will not get satisfactory results. Dr. Branner, Dr. Vaziri and Dr. Whiteside are all certified LENSX surgeons and will be happy to examine your eyes to determine if this procedure is right for you.

This approach for cataract surgery costs more because of the costs of the laser and because of the additional operating room time and preoperative measurements required. And the additional costs are not covered by insurance so patients will have to pay more out of pocket for this technology. But for patients who want to improve their chances of 20/20 vision without glasses after cataract surgery, it may be worth the additional expense.
