What does cataract surgery cost?

Per eye, approximately $7,200.

My mother, still “young” (in her early 70’s), just had cataract surgery in both eyes over a two month period of time.

$14,400 for both eyes. Plus not having perfect vision for up to 2-3 weeks afterwards, having to avoid bright lights for 6-8 weeks. If my mother had been a torch worker, she would have been out of work for close to 4 months.
