Cost Recovery

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 $25USD.
