Selecting a surgeon for your LASIK eye surgery is a very important decision that will ultimately affect your vision for the remainder of your life. It is important to discuss your personal situation with Dr. Ellis and his staff and ask your questions directly if possible. Choosing a surgeon that has high quality and safety standards can often reduce unnecessary surgical risk. Experience with LASIK eye surgery is also a very important factor when selecting your surgeon. Not all eye doctors share the same level of training or experience in laser vision correction. A surgeon with a vast amount of experience should also be able to show you some basic information regarding outcomes. When constantly analyzing surgical outcomes, the better surgeons find that the consistency and predictability of their results get better. If a surgeon tracks outcomes this actually demonstrates his or her concern with achieving the best possible results. LASIK technology is constantly improving every year. Some practices and surgeons aim to keep up with the latest technology in order to provide the best possible equipment for the best visual outcomes. In recent years we have seen the advent of wavefront-optimized LASIK and special diagnostic equipment to measure aspects of corneal thickness. Each piece of equipment contributes significantly to the LASIK process and can make the procedure better and safer. If a practice does not discuss your cornea or corneal thickness this could be an indicator that you need to see another practice. Clear patient communication should be sought after. If a practice chooses to keep you in the dark about the details start to ask questions. The best practices always provide detailed information about every step of the LASIK process. You may find some of the technical information concerning the equipment interesting and also view the LASIK outcomes chart.
