The key to successful All Laser LASIK surgery lies in the experience and care of the surgeon. Your eyes are delicate, so it’s important for you to choose an eye surgeon who is not only qualified but whom you trust with your vision. In this blog post, the team at Laser Eye Center™ has put together these guidelines to help you choose the best laser eye surgeon.
Ask The Right Questions
Before any eye surgery, many vision centers offer complimentary consultations. This is the perfect time to meet with the surgeon and ask any questions you may have in regards to the procedure and the surgeon’s qualifications. Don’t be shy in asking questions — getting answers can help put you at ease before surgery. Be sure to ask your laser eye surgeon the following:
- How many laser eye surgeries have you performed?
Make sure to specify laser eye surgeries. A highly experienced surgeon is one that has performed thousands of laser eye surgeries.
- Do you belong to any professional associations? Have you completed fellowship training or research?
- Do you use the latest technology? How old is your laser?
The surgeon should only use lasers that are no more than 15 years old. These new technologies are faster and more precise than previous lasers.
- Are you trained in wavefront technology?
Wavefront technology measures and corrects sight abnormalities including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
- What kind of results can I expect from All Laser LASIK surgery?
- What are the risks of laser eye surgery?
- How do you handle complications?
- Do you have patient testimonials available?
Make Sure The Surgeon Is A “Right” Fit
Before making a final decision, we recommend you visit the surgeon’s office to get a good gauge of the surgeon and their staff’s demeanor. Everyone on the surgeon’s staff should be professional, friendly and willing to answer all of your questions and concerns. Be sure to read testimonials and reviews from former patients; the surgeon and their team should have a great reputation when it comes to successful results and patient care.
