Eye Surgery Cost in India

Eye surgery, commonly referred to as ophthalmic or ocular surgery, is an operation carried out by an ophthalmologist on the eye or its adnexa. Because the eye is an extremely delicate organ, extra caution must be taken before, during, and after surgery to reduce or prevent additional injury. The right surgical treatment must be chosen for the patient, and the essential safety measures must be taken, according to an expert eye surgeon.

IndiCure is associated with a few of the best eye hospitals in India which offer the most advanced treatment to our patients at affordable prices.

Here's a Quick look at Eye Surgery Cost in India:

Procedure Cost in India (US $)
Cataract Surgery Starts from 600 (for one eye)
Glaucoma Surgery Starts from 400
Lasik Eye Surgery Starts from 550
Vitrectomy Surgery Starts from 1100
ICL Surgery Starts from 1350
The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The final cost shall be applicable in Indian Rupees.

Factors that affect Eye surgery cost in India:

  • Type of Treatment Required

    There are various types of treatments available for different eye issues. While one patient may need a vitrectomy, the other may need pneumatic retinopexy as treatment for retinal detachment. A patient of diabetic retinopathy may need surgery while the other may need only medication. The cost of treatment thus varies with the procedure, your medical condition and various other factors.

  • Surgical Facility

    Having your eye surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.

  • Ophthalmologist's Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your eye surgery is going to be your eye surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends only highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose eye treatment in India with IndiCure.

  • Surgery-Related Expenses

    The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the age and medical condition of the patient and thus the number and type of investigations required. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications and follow-up consultations.

We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.

Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions

LASIK, also known as Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is arguably the most well-known procedure for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea with a laser.

LASIK eye surgery is painless. Your surgeon will put numbing eye drops in both of your eyes just before the procedure. During the process, you can still feel some pressure, but you shouldn't experience any discomfort.

LASIK is typically regarded as a safe surgery with a low complication rate, despite the fact that all surgeries include some risk of problems and adverse effects. With a complication rate of fewer than 1%, LASIK is actually one of the safest elective surgical treatments available today.

You or your attendant can make an appointment by calling us or sending a whatsapp message on +91 932-003-6777.

Depending on your health, diagnostic tests may be required.

Please bring all your medical records and papers, any scans or other imaging relating to your ailment on a compact disc (CD).

Every patient is different and so is the recovery time. The patient's positive attitude and motivation are arguably the most essential factors in the speed of recovery. Age, general health, and various medical disorders are among the other factors.

The recovery also depends on the type of surgery you have. Some procedures may necessitate longer recovery time, while the others can be quick and you can recover and leave the country in a week.

All you need to apply for a medical visa to India is a valid passport, as well as proof that you are seeking medical treatment from a recognised and reputable facility in India. Under separate attendant visas, two blood relations are permitted to accompany the patient.

All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

  • The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
