Refractive Services Package
In order to assess your suitability for Custom Cataract Surgery, a battery of tests is performed. We call these tests our Refractive Services Package, which involves screening tests not covered by insurance or Medicare. These screening tests include corneal topography with both the Atlas and Pentacam topographers, specular microscopy, and assessment of macular function with OCT. Although not covered by insurance, the cost of testing is similar to what you might spend on a good pair of eyeglasses.
There are four basic options we offer for our Custom Cataract Surgery patients: Custom Distance, Custom Monovision, Custom Astigmatic (Toric), and Custom Multifocal. Understand that special cases, especially those patients with a history of prior refractive surgery such as LASIK, PRK, or RK, may require the use of more than one technology or procedure in order to obtain the desired result. Dr. Schulze will work with you to help you make the best choice for you.
