Choosing the right LASIK surgeon can be cumbersome. Everyone says they are the best, each one will tell you why they are better than others. It’s important that you choose the right surgeon you feel is best for you. If you’re comfortable with your surgeon, your LASIK experience will be much more enjoyable. Remember to do your homework and ask the right questions.
How Safe is LASIK?
I understand LASIK is extremely safe and I can expect a good outcome, but the fact is I’m still scared. How do I get past my fear and move forward?
What if I move or do something to mess up the surgery?
What happens if I accidentally rub my eyes after surgery?
What if I have one of the rare complications? Will I be blind? Can the problem be fixed?
