Choosing the Right Doctor for Laser Vision Correction
Finding someone to trust your sight to is an important decision. No one needs emergency laser vision correction, so take your time until you feel comfortable with your doctor and the information that you’ve received. You should be able to meet your surgeon before your procedure and ask him or her any questions you have. The laser vision correction surgeons at our practice in Chevy Chase, Maryland, will schedule a free LASIK consultation with prospective candidates. It should be an important part of your selection process to ensure that you are evaluated by the surgeon him or herself, and not only by a technician or optometrist.
Feeling Comfortable about Laser Vision Correction
Your doctor should make it easy for you to find patients you can talk to about their experiences before and after their LASIK procedures. You should also be able to observe procedures at the laser center. Your doctor should also do everything possible to make you feel comfortable with your decision to undergo LASIK surgery and to reassure you about any discomfort or other concerns you might have. He or she should do everything possible to make the potentially frightening experience of laser vision correction as comfortable, easy, and free of concerns as possible. You should feel confident that if your first treatment does not give you the results that you’re seeking, your surgeon will provide another procedure to fine-tune your vision further, if desired.
You should never choose a LASIK surgeon who claims to be able to guarantee any sort of surgical result or freedom from any potential problems. While most patients are delighted with their laser eye surgery outcomes, no one can honestly guarantee results.
