The Right Lasik Surgeon
Your results from LASIK will be directly related to the overall experience of the surgeons and staff within a practice. To achieve optimal results from your LASIK procedure, seek a surgeon who has completed fellowship training in LASIK and is a corneal specialist, like Dr. Zeldes (You would be surprised how few have this training). Your surgeon should be board certified & trained on the latest laser technology.
It is also important to select a LASIK practice with a proven history of refractive surgery and one who understands the intricacies of laser vision correction. According to a study conducted by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the level of intraoperative complications for experienced surgeons is less than 1% compared to a complication rate of 4.5% of less-experienced surgeons. Continuity of postoperative care and surgeon availability following LASIK is also critical for optimal results. Prior to undergoing the LASIK procedure, determine who provides your pre- and postoperative care, how much specific experience your surgeon has, and where he or she has received training.
