Choosing the Clinic for Laser Eye Surgery

If you are looking for a Clinic to get your laser eye surgery done, we recommend that you bear in mind the following recommendations when choosing a clinic:

How to Choose the Right Clinic for Laser Eye Surgery

  • Visit and compare more than one Clinic
  • Make sure that the Clinic has machines of the latest technology. Those Clinics which do many eye surgeries per year are more likely to have the latest and most advanced equipment.
  • Beware of those Clinics that advertise, “20/20 eyesight guaranteed or your money back” In medicine there is never a 100% guarantee.
  • The first day of the visit, the doctor should do a thorough analysis of you eyes to determine whether you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery. If the doctor does not do this analysis, run away from that Clinic as fast as you can.
  • Get your eye tests done at more than one Clinic. The additional cost of getting the tests done at more than one Clinic are minimal and you will have the chance to have a second opinion and get to know another doctor to see which one gives you more confidence.
  • Do not base your final decision solely on the cost and do not choose the first Clinic or doctor you see, especially if you are not fully convinced. Remember that the decision you make will affect your eyes for the rest of your life.

Learn as Much as Possible About Laser Eye Surgery

  • Ask your friends and your ophthalmologist, which Clinics are the most professional and have the newest machines. The professionalism of the Clinic is not measured only by the quality of their machines, but especially by the quality of their staff.
  • Learn online. Enter the name of the Clinic in a search engine and look at the opinions of other people who have undergone laser eye surgery in that Clinic before.
