Contrary to popular belief, not all LASIK eye surgeons are equal. The LASIK procedure is far more advanced and complicated than simply shining a laser into an eye. Your surgeon’s education, degree of expertise, experience, and patient care abilities all factor into the overall experience and success of your LASIK procedure. When you are choosing your LASIK surgeon, take the time to do your research. Ask yourself these questions:
Will my surgeon work closely with my eye doctor?
Be wary of any surgeon who does not intend to communicate and work with your current eye doctor. A successful surgeon will have a relationship with your eye doctor that includes communication both before and after your surgery to monitor your progress.
What technology is available to my surgeon?
Make sure your surgeon uses the most advanced, modern technology available for LASIK procedures. For example, at LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland, Dr. Eippert’s extensive experience with the latest bladeless technology ensures surgeries result in the highest level of accuracy and precision for patients.
Does my surgeon’s vision center have high patient satisfaction?
Find out the level of patient satisfaction offered by the surgeon. These days, reviews are at the tips of our fingertips online. Take time to read reviews of your surgeon by his or her past patients to get a sense of their experience, as well as patient testimonials, if they are available.
Is my surgeon supported by a professional, friendly staff?
Your surgeon is not the only individual you will interact with as you prepare for and recover from your LASIK surgery. It is important to find a surgeon who is supported by a professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. The staff members will most likely be the primary communicators with you when it comes to handling the scheduling of your appointments, explaining financing, and addressing your questions and concerns.
Does my surgeon put me at ease?
Above all, your surgeon needs to provide support before, during, and after the LASIK procedure. You should find a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable and puts your fears and worries at ease by answering your questions and talking you through the complete process.
