Five Things You Should Know When Considering LASIK

1). LASIK has the ability to reduce or even eliminate a patient’s dependence on glasses or contact lenses
2). LASIK has quickly become the procedure of choice for most patients, due to the short recovery time and fewer side effects than other methods of vision correction. In fact, most LASIK patients notice a significant improvement in their vision soon after surgery.
3). The FDA recognizes LASIK as proven, safe and effective. But, that is not to imply complications cannot occur. As with every surgical procedure, there are risks.
4). The actual LASIK procedure only takes a few minutes per eye. However, we ask that you arrive one hour prior to your procedure to allow ample time for preparations.
5). The doctors at the Taustine Eye Center never sacrifice on quality or safety to offer a better price. The technology involved in LASIK has dramatically changed over the years.  The intralase laser which makes the flap and the wavefront technology are both recent advances.  With new technologies come costs.  While it is only natural to want the best price, be sure you are comparing apples to apples.  There are laser centers which will advertise remarkable prices however they are not offering intralase nor custom corrections.  While it is only natural to want to get the best price, we believe quality and service are extremely important when it comes to eye surgery.
