Private Cataract Surgery

Postby P&B » Wed Oct 14, 2020 1:06 pm

Can anyone recommend a surgeon to perform a cataract removal procedure privately in the Chania region?

Also looking for a rough idea of the cost. Eleni in the opticians in Kalyves suggested EUR 700 to 900.

Two of my friends have recently had cataract surgery done by Eleni and would recommend her.

I agree with Kamisiana. Most people I know use her for anything eye related. She certainly does cataract operations but I am not sure of the cost.

I second (or fourth) the recommendation of Eleni in Chania. Andrew has had both eyes operated on by Eleni. The total charge was 830 late last year and early this year (the time of both ops). Part of that fee goes to the hospital. I should say that this was the total fee payable through IKA but is more if paid for privately.

Eleni Pavlidou can not recommender highly enough. Speaks English perfect, and has a real caring nature.

I had cataracts done in Xania Clinic privately. Total cost was about 1300 euros per eye.
The results are amazing, good luck

There are quite a lot of private clinics in Chania. Could you be a bit more specific?

It is worth noting that many surgeons, of all types, use the operating theatre facilities in one or more of the private clinics. Where the operation was performed doesn't necessarily mean that the surgeon who performed it works for that hospital. In some cases they do but often they don't. For example I know that Eleni Pavlidou, recommended in other posts, has carried out cataract operations both in Gavrilakis Clinic (Iasis) on Marko Botsari and in the Therapeutic Centre of Chania on Nikiforou Foka.

It was 5 years ago in the Therapeutic Clinic 3 Ν Φωκα Χανια. Costs were split - approximately - 600 for the Ophthalmologist and 700 for the Clinic.

Wifey had hers done at the end of last year, it included corrective lenses as she has worn contact lenses for over 50 years, doesn't need them now, eyes went from -11 down to -1.
All done privately and cost was €750 per eye, and she could then read TV subtitles, without glasses, the same evening.
