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 corneal transplant surgery as a day-case. Insurance companies and policies differ in terms of whether the cost of the transplant tissue is covered. You are advised to check with your insurer about the level and type of cover you have prior to your consultation.
Please be advised that the donor tissue is usually imported by Moorfields Eye Hospital from the United States of America and cost may fluctuate according to the exchange rate.
