Medicare/Medicaid Vision Benefits

Cataract surgery. Medicare covers many of the costs associated with cataract surgery, including the cost of a standard intraocular lens (IOL) implant.   If you choose a premium intraocular lens, such as an accommodating IOL or a multifocal IOL to reduce your need for reading glasses after surgery, you must pay the additional cost of the premium IOL (above the cost of a standard IOL) out-of-pocket.
