Choosing a LASIK provider is not an easy task. Before you make a choice, you will probably do some initial research online, discuss with your eye doctor, talk to friends and family, read through LASIK brochures, talk to more friends and family, schedule a consultation with a LASIK provider, check out testimonials about LASIK surgeons, read reviews in social media, do more research online, and review your LASIK brochures again.
There is a lot of information available. As you look into LASIK surgeons and laser technology, how do you decide which LASIK provider is right for you?
Start by considering what is most important to you. Create a list of priorities and rank them in order of importance to you. Your list might include things like LASIK surgeon experience, qualifications of the LASIK doctor, referrals from your own eye doctor, vision results, the cost of LASIK surgery and financing options, technology used, location of the LASIK provider, recommendations from friends and family, or your insurance benefits.
Use your ranked list as you do research to help you organize and prioritize the information you find about LASIK providers, cost of LASIK, and other factors that matter most to you.
And don't forget to research the facts.
