Dropless Cataract Surgery in Philadelphia Provider – Dr. James Lewis
Serving Northeast Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Elkins Park, Conshohocken, the Main Line and Phoenixville
Save $100 to $300 on your cataract surgery.
Despite excellent insurance coverage, post-operative eye drops still cost the patient between $100 and $300 out of pocket. Dr. Lewis is the only surgeon in the region to routinely eliminate these costs for all patients. There is considerable evidence to suggest that Dropless™ Cataract Surgery is safer than conventional surgery.
Until now, these drops were required two to four times a day for several weeks. Based on the results of the European Endophthalmitis Study and the work of James Gills, MD and Jeff Liegner, MD, Dr. James Lewis now applies these medications in a long acting formulation at the time of surgery.
Dr. Lewis patients are no longer required to purchase or use post-operative eye drops*. This eliminates costly co-pays and a visit to the pharmacy. In addition to cost, patients do not have to worry about timely and sterile instillation of these medications.
For more information, call 215 886-9090 and ask about Dropless™ Cataract Surgery or chat with us online. Medicare recognizes Dropless Surgery as an integral part of cataract surgery. Dr. Lewis provides this service to all patients without cost or obligation.
* In less than 10% of patients a brief post-operative course of anti-inflammatories may be required.
