How to Choose an Eye Surgeon
Serving Edison and New Brunswick, New Jersey and all areas in Middlesex County, NJ
When choosing to undergo LASIK surgery or another refractive procedure, it is important to work with the best ophthalmologist in your area. Your eye sight is too important to wager on the skills of a second-rate surgeon. There are several important factors to consider when choosing an eye surgeon. By searching for an eye doctor who meets all of these criteria, you can be confident your procedure will achieve the exceptional results you deserve.
Points to Consider When Choosing a LASIK Surgeon
Always choose an eye surgeon who has extensive experience in the treatment method you are considering. Many experts agree that a LASIK surgeon can be considered experienced after performing more than 1,000 procedures. Make sure your eye doctor has experience performing the exact same procedure on many patients with your exact same refractive error.
You will also want to work with a board certified ophthalmologist. In order to receive board certification, an ophthalmologist must undergo extensive post-graduate training and pass a series of rigorous exams. By choosing a board certified ophthalmologist, you can be confident your doctor possesses the skills and experience to deliver first rate results.
Technology also plays an important role in the success of your procedure. It is important to work with a LASIK surgeon who uses the most advanced technology available to ensure that your procedure is completed with the highest degree of precision. Your eye doctor should also regularly take continuing education courses to ensure he remains up-to-date on the latest techniques in the field.
