Cost of services and products within the medical industry is often a hard thing to find. As we like to be an open book here at Oculus Prosthetics and can appreciate the fact that all surprises are not good ones. Give us a call or email and we will be more than happy to share our set price list for all of our products services. Included in each package is a follow up service for any concerns you may have so you have peace of mind.
Artificial Eye Cost should not be something that keeps you from getting the best product and service available. We have worked out the best possible pricing for your needs to try and keep it affordable. As it is quite difficult to get funding for a prosthetic eye here in Australia we know just how hard it can be to get funds together. Private health insurance will cover a portion of the cost however that portion is quite often out weighed by the extra premium you will pay just to get that cover. Medicare and the NDIS will not cover the cost of an eye as they deem it to be a non supportive device as this point in time. Hopefully this will change soon.
Artificial Eye Cost varies drastically around the world. In the United Kingdom the NHS will fund an eye prosthesis and privately you will pay around $1700 pounds. In the USA you can pay from $1800 right through to a Rolls Royce $8500. (That doesn’t even come with an engine).
As you can see we are quite lucky here in Australia. We are able to keep costs down so the end user pays a fair price for the product they are purchasing.
Glad to see that you are presenting articles on prosthetic eyes. Good information
