According to Caring.com, an eye surgeon who conducts lens implant surgery for cataracts and who accepts Medicare can provide a list of area eyeglass providers who accept Medicare. Medicare does not cover eyeglasses for senior citizens who require them for clear vision.
Medicare notes that it only covers eyeglasses required following cataract surgery involving intraocular lens implantation; it does not cover any other types of eyeglasses a patient may require. Medicare will only cover the costs associated with cataract surgery, including eyeglasses or contact lenses for postoperative care, if they are supplied by a Medicare-approved physician. Caring.com reports that Medicare may cover the services of an eye specialist who treats eye disorders other than the requirement for glasses.
