We fully encourage our current and future patients to shop around. Because when you do, you’ll realize that New Jersey’s best LASIK care happens at Patel Eye Associates in Edison and Kendall Park.

Here’s a checklist of questions that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration suggests you ask when you’re looking for your LASIK surgeon:

  • How many LASIK procedures has the doctor performed?
  • What is the doctor’s LASIK success or complication rate?
  • What LASIK laser is your doctor using, and is your doctor’s vision technology FDA-approved?
  • Is the doctor willing to spend time answering all of your questions about LASIK as well as other vision correction options?
  • What is the doctor’s follow-up visit policy?
  • If you have a post-operative concern, how can you reach your doctor?
  • Does the LASIK surgeon provide your pre- and post-operative care, or is that handled by another doctor or someone else on staff?
  • Do you feel comfortable in the doctor’s office?
  • Do you feel that you and the doctor were able to talk openly and enjoy an “equal exchange of information”?

In addition to this LASIK eye surgeon “shopping checklist,” the FDA also suggests that you thoroughly explore your LASIK candidacy and expectations of the procedure with the surgeon you ultimately choose to conduct your LASIK vision correction.
