Have you been dreaming of what it would be like to be less dependent on glasses and wondering about LASIK*? There are so many options when it comes to surgeons and surgery centers. You don’t want to make a haphazard decision when it comes to your sight. But how are you supposed to learn more and sort out all the options?
The best initial step is to talk to a trusted local optometrist. Optometrists routinely refer and work with several regional eye surgeons so they can be a fantastic resource to evaluate your individual visual and ocular condition, and give valuable insight into trustworthy LASIK providers who have an excellent track record of success. Optometrists see the outcomes of ophthalmologist’s work in their mutual patient’s eyes. They can provide an insightful perspective because they have heard directly from other patients, and have seen firsthand their resulting vision and ocular health for years after the surgery.
We’re talking about delicate and precise eye surgery so if there’s a time to make an informed and wise decision, it’s now. Your sight is just too precious to gamble with. After a comprehensive eye examination Dr. Olson can evaluate whether you’re a good candidate for LASIK that would be likely to have a successful long-term result. He’ll also help you find a reputable and trustworthy ophthalmologist based on his and his patient’s experience, along with other considerations such as the surgeon’s level of experience with this procedure, access to the latest technology, and overall quality of service. After your LASIK procedure, Dr. Olson will work with the medical team by providing your post-operative care locally and reporting the results to you and the surgeon.
