Lasik Q & A

California Lasik

If you are looking for a place to have your LASIK eye surgery performed, you may want to consider LASIK facilities located in California State. California offers a huge selection of LASIK institutes, clinics, and independent surgeons. While the large selection of LASIK possibilities may be confusing at first, there are a few steps that you can take to ensure that you’ve made the right choice.

Before you talk with a LASIK provider, make an appointment with an independent ophthalmologist first. While most LASIK clinics offer their own evaluations, an independent ophthalmologist will give you an unbiased report on the condition of your eyes and which LASIK surgery you may qualify for. Let the ophthalmologist know that you need a LASIK evaluation; to ensure an accurate evaluation of your cornea, wear glasses instead of contacts for at least 2 weeks before your evaluation.

Once you know that you qualify for LASIK surgery, and what type of surgery you need, start researching the surgery on your own. Create a list of questions you want to ask potential doctors, and then think about what type of facility you would be most comfortable in; some patients prefer the security of a large institute, and other patients enjoy the individualized attention of a private practice.

Know that you know what type of surgery you need, you have a list of questions, and you know what type of facility you prefer, start reviewing facilities. Never stop at your first clinic; always take the time to research at least half a dozen clinics in order to find a place that will suit your needs the best. If you are interested in a surgeon, ask for references and check the surgeon’s name or clinic with consumer advisory boards and medical boards. With a little extra time and effort on your part, you will find the right California LASIK surgery for you.
