technology cannot replace a good surgeon

lasik is correction eye surgery using laser. before you decide to choose lasik eye surgery for your eyes or vision correction, you must get to know the must-known things about lasik. you must discuss with your doctor whether lasik or other treatment is suitable for you.

now i merely understand that we have eight choices for corrective eye surgery. all thanks to an article in us news & world report entitled a lighter, defter touch-years of refinement have made laser eye surgery better than ever (michelle andrew, 25 february 2007). this article also discussed the different types of eye surgeries and the technology behind each one.

the article quoted glenn hagele, founder and executive director of the council for refractive surgery quality assurance, regarding the importance of surgeon selection when considering laser eye surgery. what he said makes a lot of sense to me: "no amount of technology can make up for an inferior surgeon". if you browse USAEyes.org website, you will find a lot of good information as well as a listing of certified eye surgeons who meet certain standards for postoperative visual acuity and patient satisfaction.

you will also able to get free information about conventional or wavefront custom lasik, all-laser lasik, and many more. then find a surgeon with a good record of vision outcomes and patient satisfaction.

i think it is great that someone has rated eye surgeons on quality of correction and patient satisfaction. now, if they could just do the same for all the other specialties! LOL
