The right LASIK doctor can make all the difference. Do you know what to look for?

Once you and your eye doctor have decided that LASIK is right for you, it’s time to start looking for a LASIK doctor. Who you choose will play an important role in delivering your new and improved vision. Fortunately, your choice doesn’t have to be a pick out of a hat.

 

When starting your search for a LASIK doctor, your eye doctor may provide you with their recommendations. You should then consider these factors:

 

  • Experience
    Be sure that the doctor you choose has a level of skill and experience with the particular LASIK procedure you decide on.

 

  • Technology
    Not every laser system is meant to treat every type of vision problem. When choosing a doctor, make sure the laser system they use is effective in correcting your specific eye problems.

 

  • Attitude
    If the doctor and staff aren’t as helpful and informative as you would like during your preliminary visit, they might not be right for you.
