Working With Your Eye Doctor
Many primary eye doctors today offer LASIK surgery as an option for their patients who don't want to wear glasses or contact lenses. If you have a good primary eye doctor, he or she will review the risks and complications of LASIK with you and provide written material to further your education. He or she will often do the comprehensive eye examination to ensure your eyes are healthy, and then refer you to a capable surgeon. Often the primary doctor will also provide routine postoperative care for you as well.

It offers you the advantage of a second expert who knows you well to oversee the process and ensure that you are satisfied with the results.Wavefront Technology: How It Has Improved Lasik
