If your eye doctor has recommended you look into cataract surgery, you may be thinking, “Welllll, maybe I should wait.” After all, the pandemic is still affecting the lives of people across the world. But here is the truth. Now is actually a great time to have cataract surgery and for more reasons than you might think.

Cataract surgery is an exciting opportunity. At Collins Vision, we love to guide individuals through this journey to restored, and possibly even improved, vision. Let’s talk more about why now is an ideal time to have cataract surgery at Collins Vision.

Extra Layer of Safety

If safety is a concern to you at this time, you’re not alone. Many of our patients have asked us about this very thing! Here is what we tell them. All our cataract surgeries are performed at St. Mark’s Surgical Center, our trusted partner ASC (ambulatory surgery center). And an ASC is probably the safest place to receive care; perhaps even safer than a hospital. Why? Because ASCs do not treat sick patients. They are highly regulated healthcare facilities held to extremely high safety standards at the federal and state level.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Polly had cataract surgery at Collins Vision in July of 2020. After taking a painful fall on her sidewalk due to her poor vision, she decided to move forward with cataract surgery. Polly had an amazing experience, felt extremely safe and has exactly zero regrets about her decision.

“I don’t think people should be scared to go ahead and have cataract surgery during the pandemic. I felt completely safe, and I am so thrilled with my results. The experience has been great. The safety and expertise are top-notch.”
– Polly, Collins Vision patient

Maximize End-of-Year Savings

Need another reason to consider moving forward with cataract surgery at this time? By the final months of the year, most people have met their annual deductible, making it a great time to schedule needed medical procedures like cataract surgery (before deductibles reset in January).

With your deductible met, your supplemental insurance may very well help pay for more of your procedure costs. Not sure how all that works? We can help.

At Collins Vision, we do things a little differently, and it’s all about you! Our experienced vision experts will meet with you one-on-one to examine the health of your eyes, discuss your lifestyle, hobbies and goals after surgery to decide on a plan together. We want you to leave your consultation feeling confident and excited about your upcoming surgery and potential new vision.
