Choosing a LASIK Surgeon

Choosing a LASIK Surgeon - Mobile, AL LASIK is a great procedure that has helped over 20 million of people worldwide. LASIK can improve a wide range of refractive vision errors including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Once you have decided LASIK surgery is the right choice to improve your vision, you need to choose a surgeon to perform the procedure.

When choosing a LASIK surgeon, there are several factors which you should consider. Possibly the most important factor is experience, but you will also want to consider the technology used by the surgeon, professional affiliations, and the reviews from previous clients.

“I could not imagine going back to the way it was before the surgery,” said Chris Fowler. “To have perfect vision when you are young, to not have it when you get older, and then to get it back, was priceless.”

“It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done. To be able to wake up and not have to put contacts in or put glasses on and to see is just amazing. I would pay twice what I paid for it,” said Emily Arendall.
