If you ever intend to go for a LASIK procedure, make sure the hospital or clinic meets the 
following criteria. Your LASIK surgeon in Michigan should be performing surgery at a facility that meets these criteria. These are the facts to know about LASIK that will make your surgery safer and more successful. Begin by asking about these basic facts:





It is the duty of the doctor or the medical staff to prepare you for the procedure. They must evaluate you, 
educate, you and meet with your regularly prior to the day of the procedure.  They need to put in effort 
towards understanding your expectations and talk to you about the procedure’s limitations. 
For instance, older patients must be warned about issues such as poor reading vision and people with 
bad corrections must be informed that the treatment may not heal them perfectly. 
Also, it is necessary to place temporary punctual plugs, which is precaution against post-operative dry

The point is to make sure you, as a patient, are prepared for everything and that you have a pleasant 


Make sure the doctor or clinic possesses a considerable amount of experience in the area of 
LASIK procedures. An experienced doctor or clinic will know what to expect because they have dealt 
with the procedure several times. 
They will be proactive and be ready to deal with anything unexpected. 
Apart from improvement in vision, you, as a patient, also deserve to have a better experience. 


In order to achieve maximum effectiveness, your clinic or LASIK doctor must be willing to use the best 
technology. Each doctor or clinic relies on its own options. However, ensure that the technology used by 
them is approved and reputed. Dr. Goldstein only performs all-laser, bladeless LASIK surgery.
This particular option is known for working effectively on corneal flaps and is pain free. The healing 
process is also quick. The same can be said for the Intralase Blade Free approach. 


LASIK centers are known for minimizing cost considerations. But, it is necessary for the patient to 
know that they received the right value for their money. Of course, this may vary from patient to patient. 
But, in general, it is measured by their level of satisfaction.
