How much does an implantable contact lens cost?

Interview transcription:

In an interview, Alex Shortt explains the cost of an implantable lens

Interviewer: How much does an implantable contact lens cost?

Alex Shortt: The costs vary, but in general it is more expensive than laser eye surgery. We are priced at approximately £4,500 per eye.

Interviewer: Presumably, that’s down to the actual cost of the lens itself in part?

Alex Shortt: The cost of the lens itself accounts for at least a third of that.

It is a phenomenally advanced and expensive technology.
