This page at Consumer Health Ratings shows you where you can find the cost of eye surgery procedures. See the American Hospital Directory – Outpatient Charges for cataract and lens insert – a high-volume outpatient (ambulatory) surgery procedure. In addition, some state governments (e.g. Vermont and Utah) or hospital associations post the average charge for cataract surgery by hospital or surgery center name, with side-by-side facility comparisons. Medicare data in the General Costs for Ambulatory Surgery category may also give you a rough idea of the cost. Most cataract surgeries are done in an ambulatory surgery center, instead of a hospital. So it may be necessary to call the surgery center to get a current price quote.
