A surgeon’s levels of skill and experience are critical to ensuring consistent success for every patient. The surgeon has to calculate the treatment the laser executes and as well as perform the surgery. Below, we have included a list of important questions to ask a LASIK surgeon to make sure you are in capable hands.
The more thoroughly trained the surgeon is in the techniques and science behind laser surgery, the more likely he or she is to achieve an excellent result. Additionally, if their knowledge goes beyond just LASIK, they will better understand your unique eyes and better account for your eyes’ physiology in their treatment plans. Both Dr. Price and Dr. Feng are cornea trained and leaders in their field.
As of July 18th 2016, we have performed over 50 cases of Contoura, more than anyone else in the state of Indiana, as well as thousands using previous LASIK technologies. Experience matters; come to leaders in the field whom understand the ins and outs of the newest techniques. Lock-in your free screening today!
Surgeons who are publishing results and conducting studies are staying on the cutting edge of care and our able to offer their patients the latest technology. Additionally, they are setting a standard of quality that merits acceptance into competitive journals.
Our practice regularly publishes its surgical results and techniques. Combined, our doctors have co-authored over 200 articles accepted into peer reviewed journals. Most importantly, our practice led a recent landmark 1,800 patient study on LASIK vs. contacts which followed patients with each type of vision correction for three years. See the results!
You only have two eyes, why trust them to someone not setting a standard for care?
Our doctors our on the leading edge of ophthalmology and refractive surgery, and based on their contributions have received numerous awards by ophthalmology groups.
It can be tempting to take a one-size will fit all approach to refractive correction, but the fact of the matter is that different patients may do better with different procedures. For certain patients, an ICL (Implantable Contact Lens), CLE (Clear Lens Exchange), or PRK (photorefractive keratochetomy) may be better options than LASIK. It’s important to pick a surgeon that is able to do the full-range of correction procedures, and understand which is right for you.
Many lasers currently in use are based on technology that is over a decade old. Our laser, which is brand new as of 2016, has the latest technology improvements to increase speed, precision, and reliability of treatments.
It’s important for a laser to stay in a temperature and humidity controlled setting to ensure that it continues to achieve maximum precision and consistency with treatments. Unfortunately, many lasers get transported on trucks from city to city to cut costs while lowering quality control. At Price Vision Group, with our high standard of care and patient focus, we never move our laser from its controlled environment.
The answers to these seven questions alone will go a long way toward identifying which surgeons are invested in getting the best results for their patients, sharing their results rather than hiding them, and leading the field in redefining the standard of quality.
