hi

Dr. PG :

welcome to just answer

Dr. PG :

the package rate for cataract surgery depends on the kind of intraocular lens implanted

Dr. PG :

the surgery is done by Phacoemulsification which is a stitchless surgery

Dr. PG :

it is usually done under topical anesthesia (no need for injection) and is a 10-15 minute surgery

Dr. PG :

if you get a monofocal intraocular lens implanted then the charges are usually around 2000 USD

Dr. PG :

if you get a multifocal intraocular lens implanted then the charges are around 3000 USD

Dr. PG :
