Mr. Flynn works with AXA PPP, BUPA and VITALITY private health insurers.  If you have private health insurance, the self-pay information above does not apply.  Your insurance company will usually cover the cost of cataract surgery as a day-case with a single focus lens.  You are advised to check with your insurer about the level and type of cover you have prior to your consultation.  Insured patients having cataract surgery will need to pay a top-up fee if they wish to avail of premium intraocular lenses and/or femtosecond laser.  

Please be advised that BUPA currently does not permit its patients to top-up and avail of femtosecond laser technology for cataract surgery.
