Who Wants A Good Lasik Doctor?

Aug 17, 2007
Lasik is a surgical operation that is getting more and more popular. Even though lasik is an operation with a high success rate, there should be no doubt in your mind that you should be getting a good lasik doctor at all cost. You must realize that this is a serious procedure as any mistake made by the doctor may cost you your eyes and ultimately your life!

How To Find A Good Lasik Doctor?

Since it is so important to find a good lasik doctor, you must keep your eyes and ears peeled. One of the best way to find a good lasik doctor is to find out from people who has done lasik before. Ask your family and friends. Who else better than your family or friends who had done the procedure and can tell you where they went for the surgery and whether is the center good? This first-hand account by someone you know will definitely be more truthful and accurate compared to research done by yourself.

Of course, if you do not know anyone who had lasik procedure done before, the next best thing is to do your research by using the internet as your resource tool. You can easily locate thousands of lasik centers and doctors from all over the world with a click of a button. Besides, you can easily find reviews of centers and doctor by people who had their lasik done before in lasik related forums. However, you must be careful about any information that you can find online especially those in the forums. Always check with authority sites to make sure the information given is true and accurate.

In general, a good lasik doctor must have performed at least 500 lasik surgeries before and has a high success rate. Of course, the more lasik surgeries he has done before, the better. Besides, you have to double check to make sure the doctor and the center he belongs to, is fully qualified and legit. If possible, call up the center to find out more about the number of operations they have performed and the success rate. This way you can find out for yourself how the customer service is like. Then arrange an appointment to consult with the doctor.

Here are some basic questions that you can ask :
1.How long have they been doing lasik surgeries?
2.How many lasik surgeries has the doctor done?
3.What type machines the center are using for the surgeries?
4.What happen if the surgery is not successful?

Make sure that the lasik doctor explain the entire lasik procedure to you and also perform all the necessary tests to ensure that you are a suitable candidate. If the center just tells you that you can go for the surgery without any tests, run away quick! The result can be disastrous for someone who is not suitable to go for lasik.

If the lasik doctor can fulfill the above criteria, he or she is probably a good lasik doctor. However, the ultimate decision will boil down to how comfortable you are with this doctor.
