• Questions to Ask During Your LASIK Consultation

    || 03-09-2016

    Prior to your LASIK procedure, you will first have a consultation with your eye surgeon. During this consultation, your doctor will examine your eyes and determine whether or not you are a candidate for LASIK surgery. This also gives you the opportunity to ask all your questions to put your mind as ease and make sure you’ve chosen the right LASIK surgeon for you.

    Before you head to your LASIK consultation, it is a great idea to write down all your questions so you don’t forget to ask anything during your visit. Some important questions you might want to consider asking during your consultation include:

    How many LASIK surgeries have you performed?

    Finding a surgeon that has more experience is ideal. You’ll want to also ask how many surgeries they have performed using the specific laser technology they will be using on you as well as how many cases corrected an eye problem similar to yours.

    LASIK surgeons with special training or those who belong to professional associations may also signal an experienced LASIK surgeon.

    Have you performed LASIK surgery on family members or other doctors?

    Trusting oneself to operate on a family member or fellow professional is a great sign of expertise. It’s also okay if your surgeon hasn’t, but this is a huge plus if they have!

    What laser technology do you use?

    There are different types of laser vision correction surgeries as well as different types of lasers. Being informed on which laser your surgeon will use for you will help put you more at ease. Make sure to also ask how many LASIK procedures your surgeon has performed using the specific laser they will be using on you. This way you know they are comfortable and confident with their technology.

    What determines if I’m a candidate for LASIK?

    Understanding what makes you a candidate for LASIK will help you understand the process better. Learn more about whether or not you might be a candidate.

    Where can I find testimonials or speak with former patients?

    If you are able to speak with former patients, ask to speak to someone that had the same laser eye surgery you’re considering. Use this opportunity to learn more about your surgeon from someone that has experience with them and what you can expect during and after your procedure.

    Your surgeon will also likely go over what you can expect during and after your LASIK surgery but this is the time to ask for clarification if you need it.
