I just had Cataract surgery in both eyes ( 3 weeks apart). I have been pricing glasses at different places as Eye Land etc, they all say medicare pays a flat rate of $80 toward glasses.
i asked the tech at my Eye surgery center for a price on tansitional lens, plastic lens, lined biofcals and a frame for $140. She gave me a total price of $330 but after medicare allowance I would be paying out about $140, plus $35 for the refractatory test.
Anyone have any info on medicare allowance, seems to be a big difference between the Drs. office and these eye glass as i will call them stores.
