How to Shop For LASIK
Serving Edison and New Brunswick, New Jersey and all areas in Middlesex County, NJ
It is important to understand the specifics of the procedure as well as the benefits and risks when shopping for LASIK surgery. More important, however, is to find a highly skilled LASIK surgeon with whom you feel comfortable.
Many eye care professionals offer LASIK. Some advertise discounted pricing to stimulate business, and this may be appealing. However, before you choose a LASIK surgeon based on price alone, understand that you often get what you pay for. Make sure you choose a board-certified ophthalmologist who is educated in the very latest technology and experienced in a variety of LASIK procedures to ensure the safety of your precious vision.
Ask for Recommendations
A great way to start your search for a LASIK surgeon is to ask for recommendations from friends, family, and coworkers. These people can provide you with valuable information about their overall experience with the surgery as well as their surgeon. If you know someone who had a wonderful experience with a LASIK surgeon, you may want to contact that doctor for a consultation.
You should also consider asking for a recommendation from your family doctor or eye care professional. These doctors often have relationships with LASIK eye surgeons and can guide you to choose the surgeon who fits your needs.
Choosing the LASIK Surgeon
Your LASIK surgeon should work closely with you from your very first appointment all the way through to your complete recovery. Some LASIK practices manage patient visits using a variety of doctors and technicians, meaning you may not even meet your eye surgeon until the moment of surgery.
