After a quick Google search for Lasik surgery clinic, you may feel overwhelmed with a wide range of clinics located near you. Choosing a trustworthy clinic could be a big decision, so this begs the question, “how do I choose a Lasik surgery clinic that is right for me?”
Below, we’ve put together some items to consider when looking for a laser eye surgery centre. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 604-430-9560.
Review their website
Visiting a Lasik surgery clinic’s website can give you a lot of information to help you narrow down your search. Make sure to look for information about the surgeon, technical assistants, equipment, and operations that the clinic offers.
Something a lot of people don’t know is that there are many different types of laser eye surgeries. While Lasik or our new Femto Lasik procedures are the most popular, not everyone is a suitable candidate. Now, this doesn’t mean that laser eye surgery isn’t for you! You might be a great candidate for a different operation like PRK. So check out the different options that each clinic has available for their patients.
Speak with your eye care professional
The traditional approach is to get a referral from your own eye care professional and this is a great place to start. However, don’t let that stop you from calling and visiting other locations to find the right fit. Your own optometrist or optician will likely have information on a few local Lasik clinics, so the next time you visit, make sure to ask some questions and get some recommendations.
Book a free consultation with different Lasik surgery centres
Most Lasik surgery clinics offer free laser eye surgery consultations. This is the best way to get a feel for the clinic, meet the staff, and ask any pressing questions you may have. Narrow your choice to a few clinics and meet with them. You will find out quickly if the centre is the right fit for you.
At BoydVision, we want everyone to feel comfortable coming in, asking questions, and getting honest and accurate information. That’s why during your consultation you’ll be able to meet and speak with Dr. Boyd himself. With over 25,000 laser eye surgeries performed, he will be able to go over the pros and cons, risks, outcomes, and procedures that fit your unique case.
Health Canada advises you are more likely to have a successful outcome with laser eye surgery if you choose your eye surgeon carefully and discuss the risks, benefits and expectations in advance. We are here to help you make an educated decision. To book your free laser eye surgery consultation with BoydVision, give us a call at 604-430-9560.
