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 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.
Be certain that your surgeon uses an FDA-approved laser or a laser that has a special FDA exemption. Remember that the procedure of LASIK does not have to be FDA-approved but the laser used for any laser vision correction procedure should be. The excimer laser used at our facility is FDA approved and ideal for LASIK eye surgery.
Feeling Comfortable about Laser Vision Correction
Your doctor should make it easy for you to find laser vision correction patients you can talk to about their experiences before and after their 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 laser vision correction 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 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 vision correction outcomes, no one can honestly guarantee results.

Dr. Macedo recently performed surgery on a local lawyer, who was astonished to find that he could see “clear across the Redskins field”. Another thrilled patient is a young mother, who can now wake up in the middle of the night to look after her one-year old without first fumbling for her glasses.
Our doctors have helped train co-managing doctors through proctoring, lectures, and articles. These doctors have chosen our laser vision correction team for their own LASIK as well as that of their families and staff.
