Fees: Self-Pay and Insurance

Mr Turnbull is proud to work with and be fee-assured by the following insurance companies:


Private medical insurance usually covers standard cataract surgery and pterygium surgery, amongst many other general ophthalmic procedures and consultations. Refractive vision correction procedures such as laser vision correction, refractive lens exchange and refractive cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses are not usually covered by insurance and must be self-funded. Please check with your Insurer to confirm what is covered under your individual policy. 


Self-funding is also necessary if you do not have private medical insurance with one of the above companies.

Depending on your circumstances, finance packages may be available through Optegra Eye Hospital.

*Astigmatism is a common problem and I strongly believe that it should be corrected when necessary. This is one of my key areas of expertise, and as such I carefully analyse the measurements of each eye to decide whether or not an astigmatism-correcting toric lens is required. As much time and effort goes into deciding that you don't need a toric lens as goes into deciding that you do, ensuring that we find the best solution for the specific optics of your eye.
