How much does cataract surgery cost?
The price of a cataract treatment in Northern Ireland is £1,900 which is less than the reimbursement rate so patients will have their medical costs fully reimbursed. They do not reimburse travel and any other type of costs.
There is no costs to patients for using Trasna’s service.
