When choosing a LASIK surgeon it is important to remember a few things.
First, always get a second opinion. You should compare several LASIK surgeons. LASIK surgery will vary from place to place, so it is best to find out risk levels and the positives from several surgeons before choosing one.
Talk to your insurance company about coverage before you choose a surgeon. Don't decide on a surgeon just because he or she quotes you a lower price than the others. Don't sway from surgeons who may charge you a bit more. Cheapest isn't always best and more expensive doesn't always mean better care or experience. It is important to find out as much information as possible about several surgeons before making your choice.
Make sure that each doctor you visit offers brochures on the LASIK procedure. Read over each page and ask the surgeon as many questions as possible, including those about negatives outcomes. A good surgeon will be upfront and honest with you about all possible outcomes of this procedure, including the pros and cons associated with the surgery.
