Best Bladeless LASIK Surgeon By William Goldstein on September 20, 2016

Now that you have decided to improve your vision with LASIK, the next step is to find a 
surgeon qualified to conduct the procedure. You are literally putting your visual future in the 
hands of another person, so make sure they are the right one. 
Finding the best bladeless LASIK surgeon will provide you a satisfying result and reduce 
complications due to errors. Read on to find out the criteria for choosing a good LASIK 
1. Personally ask around
With information available readily at your fingertips, you may find this quite tasking. Rather 
than looking up LASIK surgeons on the internet, ask your neighbors, family, friends, and 
colleagues about any good surgeons they know. You can find out their experiences with the 
surgeon and get a more detailed account of the treatment, cost, and recovery processes. 
2. Be careful when you look at LASIK ads
Many LASIK surgeons generously use the advertising space to promote their practice. Keep 
your eyes and ears out for ads in local newspapers, television, on the internet, and even the 
radio. While it is difficult to gauge a surgeon’s expertise or credibility based on a marketing 
technique, you will still have a name to check out. Be careful though....many of the surgeons who do the most advertising do not do their own work, and don't always guarantee the results.
3. Get a referral from your optometrist
Your optometrist may have a good relationship with the best lasik surgeon, and knows your eyes. Ask them for recommendations on 
the best LASIK surgeon in your area. More often than not, you will be directed to the right 
4. Ignore the cost, initially
LASIK surgery is not cheap and the cost of the procedure varies from one surgeon to another. 
Do not be discouraged if a good surgeon costs you a little more. Many of them have schemes 
to ease your burden by allowing payments in installments or providing a finance plan.
5. Consider their experience
Seasoned LASIK surgeons know how to deal with complications and anticipate risks better. 
They understand the ins and outs of the procedure much better than novice surgeons. 
6. Check their credentials
Thoroughly check the LASIK surgeon’s credentials by asking about their license and board 
certification. If they are recognized by reputed entities such as the American Board of 
Medical Specialties then you can go ahead with their services. In addition, if your surgeon is 
a member of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), then you are assured of quality 
medical care.
Remember, LASIK is a complex and delicate procedure and its effects will stay with you for 
the rest of your life. Gather as much information about as many LASIK surgeons you can and 
make a list. Compare the risks, benefits, experience, cost, and other factors and choose the best bladeless lasik surgeon for you.
