The decision to have laser or surgical vision correction is an important one that you should make carefully, not quickly. Choose a practice that focuses on safety, diagnostic technology, post-operative follow-up. Obviously, the experience of the surgeon is extremely important as well. We hope you will choose Bond Eye Associates as your provider, but if you're shopping around, use this checklist to compare.
|Does the surgeon perform at least 1,000 refractive procedures per year?||Yes||No|
|Does the center use wavefront analysis to take measurements of the eye pre-operatively and post-operatively?||Yes||No|
|Does the center measure the size of the patient’s pupils in order to ensure the appropriate treatment zone is used to avoid post-operative side effects?||Yes||No|
|Does the practice test for dry eye before the procedure?||Yes||No|
|Does the center sterilize all the instruments for each eye and use a separate blade (in traditional LASIK) for each eye? (Another cost savings step that is not as safe.)||Yes||No|
|Does the center take the time to explain complex issues such as monovision and presbyopia and how they will affect your vision after age 40?||Yes||No|
