Medicare Eyeglasses Coverage After Cataract Surgery

Medicare does not ordinarily cover prescription eyeglasses, with one exception. Because cataract surgery always changes the eyeglasses prescription, Medicare will cover one basic pair of glasses following cataract surgery.

Frequently, this amount will not cover the full cost of your new eyewear. In addition, there is no reimbursement for options such as antireflective coating, scratch-resistant coating, tinting, over-size lenses, highindex (“ultra-thin”) lenses, or progressive (“no-line bifocal”) lenses.
