A Formula That Sustains Long-term Eye Care
The cost of treating a patient for cataract surgery, including the costs of the facilities (s)he stays in, as well as the cost of the surgeon and pre and post operative care is covered in a cost recovery program.
- 45% of patients that can afford to pay the full price are charged $120USD
- 20% of the patients pay a smaller amount based on what they are able to pay
- 35% receive full care for free
The cost recovery formula is designed to ensure that all poor patients receive cataract surgery for a minimal cost of $20USD.
