The U.N. estimates that over 90 percent of people living with glaucoma and other neurodegenerative disorders in the United States receive some form of treatment.
But the costs can be high, especially for those living in the South and Midwest.
In the South, the average cost of cataracts surgery is $5,600, according to a 2014 study from the University of South Carolina.
But for the region as a whole, the median cost is $8,700, according the study.
For many people, the cost of surgery is the deciding factor in whether they are willing to go ahead with the procedure.
For Jennifer Kuziek, it’s not a decision she makes lightly.
“I’m not a super-slim guy.
I have a very athletic build.
I’m about 185 pounds.
So I don’t really want to go to surgery unless I know I can pay for it,” she said.
Kuzieks surgery began with a CT scan.
The results of the scan showed a cyst in her right eye that was growing, so the surgery was scheduled for March 15, 2018.
“That was the first time in my life that I thought I could go into surgery,” she added.
A CAT scan shows a cystic tumor growing in the left eye of Jennifer Kukiek.
“It was one of those things where you can kind of imagine it, ‘Oh, OK, I’m going to have surgery and I’m not going to be able to see much,'” she said, adding that it took about four months for the surgery to go in.
Kukieks eye was scanned again in December.
She had another CT scan in January and again in April.
Then, on April 10, she got a call from a surgeon who said, “Your eye is clear.
There’s nothing left to do.”
The surgery was successful, but Kuzies left eye is still very cloudy, which caused her to miss a lot of her classes.
Kuziks eye has become progressively more cloudy, and her family has had to find other ways to pay the bills.
The U.K. has one of the lowest rates of glaucoidosis in the world.
But that hasn’t stopped people from going ahead with cataractic surgery.
A study published in the Journal of the American Ophthalmology Society found that more than 50 percent of catacarpals in the country were removed because the surgeon didn’t have the equipment or expertise.
And the cost was a factor, too.
A cataracarpal surgery is generally performed with a laser, which cuts the cyst away from the eye and opens it.
But a catarascope is the same thing.
It’s a laser that shoots light through the cysts, which allows the cystic growth to be seen.
“They don’t have a good enough imaging tool,” said Kuzietk.
“So we’re not going in expecting to be completely clear and there’s a lot that’s left to be done.”
The U., which has one-third of the world’s population, has the most expensive cataraclasts in the developed world, according an analysis by the National Institutes of Health.
The average cost is more than $25,000.
