Risks and Complications

Improper Screening

Most complications are preventable. One of the most common reasons for complications following surgery is improper screening of the surgery candidate. An inexperienced surgeon may fail to detect a condition that would make you a poor candidate, whereas an experienced surgeon may advise you against having LASIK, after having performed a careful preoperative examination. As discussed earlier, there are many reasons to turn down a patient. That is why it's important to choose a surgeon based on his or her competence-not on the cheapest fee available.
