You cannot put a price tag on your eyes, but the long-term benefits of cataract surgery are tremendous. You do not have to worry about wearing your glasses anymore and can enjoy life to the fullest. Colours will seem brighter and you will discover a remarkable sharpening of your sight. Think of it as an investment in improving your quality of life.

Will my medical insurance cover the cataract surgery cost?

The really good news is this: you will be able to use your medical insurance to cover a part of your cataract surgery. Nevertheless, each insurer is different, so we advise you speak to your insurer to discuss your cataract surgery before you go ahead with treatment.

If you live outside the UK and are not paying with insurance, then your account will need to be settled prior to your cataract surgery.

BUPA and cataract surgery

You will receive an account from Mr Ursell and the hospital following surgery. You will need to forward these to your insurance company.  BUPA is the only insurance company that does not fully cover Mr. Ursell’s fees as they have recently reduced the amount that they are prepared to cover.

What payment methods are available at Cataract Doctor?

You can pay for your cataract surgery using either a debit or credit card or by cheque. All cheques should be made payable to CESP (Surrey) and must be sent to CESP before surgery or given to Mr. Ursell on the day of the operation.
