  • What Is The Cost Of Cataract Surgery In India?

    Cataract surgery cost may range from Rs. 32,000 to Rs. 39,014. However, various factors can impact the cost of cataract surgery.

    Cataract surgery is also known as lens replacement surgery. During this surgical procedure, the eye specialist removes the affected original lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is typically recommended when the patient’s eye lens becomes cloudy and results in vision loss.

    According to the National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCS), there are over 22 million people that are blind in India. Out of the mentioned number, 80.1% are blind because of cataracts. They also reported that the annual incidence of cataract blindness is about 3.8 million.

    Cataract Eye Surgery Cost in India

    The following are different techniques that are determined by the eye doctor after assessing the severity of the opaqueness in the affected eye-

    • Phacoemulsification This technique is different compared to all the techniques mentioned above. During this procedure, an eye doctor uses an ultrasound probe to cut the affected lens in order to remove it. Then, the selected artificial lens is fixed to get a clear vision. The average cost of phacoemulsification for a cataract removal surgery in India may range from Rs. 32,000 to Rs. 39,014 (for one eye).
    • Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS)- This is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed to remove the damaged lens. This surgery is performed with precision that aids in restoring normal vision by replacing the affected lens with the best-suited artificial lens. The average cost of MICS for cataract removal in India may range from Rs. 32,000 to Rs. 39,014 (for one eye).
    • Intracapsular Cataract Surgery (ICCE)- This procedure for cataract removal surgery is conventional as compared to modern treatments of cataract. In this technique, the eye surgeon makes an incision in order to remove the lens completely along with the lens capsule. Once the lens is removed, the artificial lens is then placed and sealed with sutures in the anterior chamber of the affected eye. The average cost of intracapsular cataract surgery in India may range from Rs. 32,000 to Rs. 39,014 (for one eye).
    • Extracapsular Cataract Surgery (ECCE)- This technique is also traditional as compared to advanced surgical techniques for cataract removal. In this technique, the eye surgeon removes most of the lens part except the posterior capsule, also called the elastic lens capsule. Once the removal of the affected lens is done, the surgeon implants the artificial lens to restore the vision of the eye. The average cost of extracapsular cataract surgery in India may range from Rs. 32,000  to Rs. 39,014.
    • Femtosecond Laser-assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)- This is one of the modern techniques used for cataract removal surgery. During this procedure, an eye surgeon uses laser technology to make a tiny incision on the cornea flap in order to remove the affected lens. This surgical technique is considered safe and effective cataract-removal surgery. The average cost of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery in India may range from Rs. 32,000  to Rs. 39,014 (for one eye).

    Factors that affect Cataract Surgery Cost in India

    There are a few contributing factors that can affect the final cost of cataract surgery in India. Some of them are-

    • Type of Cataract- There are different types of cataracts, such as nuclear cataracts, posterior cataracts, or congenital cataracts that can lead to blurry vision.
    • Type of Technique– Depending on the type of cataract, the eye doctor will determine the best-suited technique for the removal of the affected lens. The cost range of one surgical technique may differ from another technique for cataract removal and will affect the final cost of the cataract treatment.
    • Type of IOL- There are different types of cataract lenses available in the market that may have different cost ranges from one lens to another. Cost of cataract lens is one of the major factors that affect the final cost of the treatment.
    • Medication- The eye specialist will prescribe a few medications along with the eye drops for pre and post-cataract surgery. The total cost of the medication will also add up to the final cost of cataract treatment.
    • City- The final cost of cataract surgery in India may also vary from one city to another.  

    Is cataract surgery covered under medical insurance in India?

    Yes. Most health insurance companies do provide cost coverage for cataract treatment in India. However, the coverage of the cataract surgery may differ from one patient to another depending on several factors, including the type of lens used for replacement, type of surgery performed for cataract removal, type of medical insurance policy you have taken, the company you have taken the insurance from, etc.
