You should have a thorough consultation with your eye surgery professional, including the wavefront scan. For this part of the process, you will be asked to look at a target light while the laser sends a beam into your eye and measures its refraction to get a precise diagnosis of the aberrations in your eye.
You should then have the opportunity to ask questions of the surgeon about your diagnosis, why custom LASIK is appropriate in your case, and what the process looks like. You should also find out what laser will be used on your eyes, and whether the process is truly "custom" (designed specifically for your eye defects) or merely "optimized."
Great blog! Thanks. I recently had lasik surgery and by accident I stumbled upon www.thepatientsadvantage.com. I used them when looking for a lasik surgeon.
What I liked the most was that my profile remained anynomyous until I was ready to decide what to do. I received replies from four surgeons that met all the things I was looking for. I liked having that complete control without the sales pressure that some of these places can be known for.
If you are going to go down the cosmetic surgery road...better to be safe than sorry. Check them out.
