LASIK Safety By William Goldstein on November 24, 2014

LASIK surgery in Detroit corrects vision problems but since it’s a surgical procedure there are possible risks of complications. Your LASIK surgeon in Detroit can help to minimize these issues, and make sure your LASIK surgery is safe for you. Instances of dry or red eyes are common side effects of LASIK and these often go away after a while. But there is a lot you can do before and after your surgery to prevent more significant complications. Simple measures taken prior and post your surgery can help you ensure your good eye health and minimize and prevent future vision problems.

Before your surgery:

  • Choose experience over cost

Experienced LASIK eye surgeons in Detroit are likely to charge more to perform the procedure. Here you as the surgery candidate pay for the expertise and the years of work experience of the surgeon.

  • Ask the right questions

During your consultation ask your LASIK surgeon in Detroit about the steps involved in the procedure; time involved and possible complications. Find out about types of LASIK procedures and what makes you a suitable candidate for one type over other. Make sure to ask them on what grounds they reject a candidate for surgery as not all can opt for it and inquire about their turndown reasons and rates. This will help you further establish the credentials of your LASIK surgeon in Detroit.

  • Provide the right answers

Additionally, provide your LASIK surgeon with all the relevant information about your medical history such as previous surgeries, allergies, drug use or any other questions asked.

After your surgery:

  • Follow instructionsTo minimize complications from your surgery follow all recovery steps as instructed by your LASIK surgeon in Detroit. Use eye drops as prescribed to you and stay away from sun and water as per your doctor’s orders.
  • Go for follow up checks

The work of your LASIK surgeon in Detroit is not complete after performing the surgery. Good doctors will call you for regular checkups after your LASIK surgery in Detroit until they are satisfied with the results.

  • Schedule visits

If you feel any sort of discomfort in the eyes after your LASIK in Detroit then immediately  schedule an appointment with your doctor and deal with the problem. In addition to your checkups after the surgery, remember to book your yearly eye exams to ensure good vision.
