What to Look for in a LASIK Surgeon

Last updated 2 years ago

When you're considering a laser vision correction procedure, knowing that you have the right doctor and the highest standard of care is crucial for your peace of mind. Choose a LASIK surgeon who makes you feel confident in your decision. The laser vision correction specialists at LASIK of Nevada take your concerns seriously. We've performed tens of thousands of LASIK procedures, and we have the qualifications patients seek. These qualifications include:

  • Experience

Ask the surgeon how long he or she has performed the corrective laser procedure. Make sure the LASIK surgeon offers follow-up care and enhancements. Furthermore, find out if your LASIK surgeon is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. See if he or she is a member of a professional society such as the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. In short, make sure the surgeon you choose is highly experienced and qualified.

  • Technology

Doctors using the latest and most advanced lasers can evaluate your unique eye anatomy and deliver the best possible improvement in vision. The most respected names in laser vision correction use modern, FDA-approved excimer laser technologies. They work with you to find the appropriate solution and technology for your specific eye condition, achieving the best outcome at the lowest cost.

  • Honesty

The best doctors know that LASIK is only one option available to improve your vision. Don't settle for someone pushing a specific procedure if they aren't explaining other treatments as well. Ask your doctor about PRK, for example. You need to be confident that your doctor is making an informed, unbiased decision for your eye health.
