Cataract surgery is prevalent in older adults. Also, heredity is a factor in developing cataracts.Seniors on Medicare and Medigap are usually well covered for this surgery. Medicare by itself will cover 80% of the surgery and related costs. If a senior only has Medicare they are typically looking at $500-$800 out of pocket cost. Whereas, if they had a supplement or Part C Medicare coverage, their cost would be $0 to half of Medicare only coverage.

Wearing a widebrimmed hat is something everyone should do and hats don’t cost that much so they are within everyones finances. Everyone who can should be using the ultra-violet obsorbing lens glasses.” Micheal thanks for pointing that out lets not forget that everyone needs to be aware of the causes and possible how we can prevent it.

Wearing a widebrimmed hat is something everyone should do and hats don’t cost that much so they are within everyones finances. Everyone who can should be using the ultra-violet obsorbing lens glasses. For many disabled persons this is very hard if not impossible to do because many disabled and seniors are on fixed limited incomes and medical programs like MediCaid and MediCare will only cover certain types of glasses. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
