Benefits,Costs and Management of Cataract and Refractive Surgery

Cataract and Refractive surgery has a tremendous impact on people’s lives. Benefits are apparent in many ways. Some problems cannot be corrected with conventional glasses or contact lenses. In other cases, corrective lenses can be worn but with extreme difficulty. For these people, refractive surgery provides a way to clear vision without battling with visual aids. Refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery costs more than conventional options. The laser itself can cost the surgeon approximately $300,000 to $500,000, and additional costs are associated with using and maintaining the device.One of the most significant challenges that ophthalmologists face when performing cataract surgery involves managing patient expectations. Patients are not concerned with phaco time, technique or technology, but rather intraoperative comfort and postoperative results. Most patients do not want stitches, pain or injections. In order to achieve better outcomes, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used for cataract surgery cases.
