What you need to know about eye surgery and eye diseases

Delaware is one of only two states to have its own eye insurance, and it has seen its population increase significantly in recent years.

The state’s population increased by more than 3 million people in the last five years, and the number of eye surgeries performed per capita has doubled to more than 40. 

Delaware has a population of 1.6 million. 

If you’re considering surgery, you might want to look into the state’s insurance plan. 

As of February 2018, there were about 1.2 million individuals and families with coverage under the state-run program. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number for adults with pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer, has increased more than 600% over the last decade. 

The state has also seen a boom in the number and type of procedures it offers. 

While the number per capita for the insured population has declined, the total number of procedures performed has risen. 

“Delaware’s population has increased by roughly 3 million residents since 2000,” the CDC reported in February.

“The number of insured people has increased nearly 2.5 million since 2000.

The percentage of insured adults who have received an eye surgery has increased from 10% to 14%.”

The growth of insured population and overall procedure use has led to increased morbidity and mortality,” the state Department of Insurance said in a statement. 

For instance, the state reported that over 1,000 eye surgeries were performed on patients in 2020, an increase of 1,200 patients from 2015. 

But the number in 2020 also rose by about 2,000 patients per 100,000 people, a decrease of 7% from the previous year. 

In 2016, there was an average of more than 700 eye surgeries per 100 people, which was the highest rate in the nation. 

And in 2017, there had been an average number of 1 surgery per 100 residents, the highest in the country. 

This year, the average number per 100 resident had dropped to an average rate of about 7.2.
