Nutfield Eye Associates knows how exciting and nervous patients are when they come into our offices for a LASIK consultation with Dr. Lamy. Improving your eyesight is a life-changing experience and we share that enthusiasm with you! As a leading eye doctor office in NH, we have a few questions you should ask before committing to LASIK surgery in NH.
What is your experience? Just as you wouldn’t want any other surgery not completed by a qualified and experienced doctor, your LASIK surgeon should be no different! Eyes are sensitive and intricate parts of the body, and you should feel comfortable with their proficiency and referrals before agreeing to anything.
What happens after surgery? It’s important to not only be aware of the surgery’s procedure, but what to expect afterward. We don’t want our patients sitting at home and worrying about the way something feels or is healing! Your LASIK surgeon should be able to describe how common post-ops go, what you should be aware of, how to care for your eyes, and more.
How many candidates have you declined? LASIK is a wonderful surgery that helps our patients see better, but it is not meant for every person and any practiced surgeon knows that some candidates are not fit for their specific corrective procedure. Though they might not have a number readily available to give you, they should not say “none”.
What is the cost and/or coverage for LASIK? It isn’t uncommon that LASIK is not fully covered by healthcare providers, and dependent on your surgeon, you might have to pay more money out of pocket. Be sure to have these numbers solidified before surgery to ensure you’re not blindsided by costs.
