Thinking About LASIK – Ask Your Eye Doc

If you’re thinking about LASIK Vision Correction, you’re probably asking yourself, what LASIK surgeon should I go to? Answer: Your regular eye doctor.

Your regular eye doctor is most familiar with your eye conditions and vision history. While not all eye doctors will initiate a conversation about LASIK, don’t let this prevent you from asking him/her about it. Your eye doctor can recommend a trusted eye surgeon to perform the LASIK eye surgery. You may feel more comfortable with your eye doctor’s referral than with a LASIK eye surgeon you heard about on the radio or saw on the internet.

Eye Center of Texas works with 275+ Houston area optometrist.  These eye doctors are excellent doctors and can co-manage your case (meaning…your eye doctor won’t perform the surgery but can determine whether or not LASIK is right for you and can see your for your pre and post operative eye care visits).

If your eye doctor finds that you’re a good candidate for LASIK (or PRK/Visian ICL) they can help schedule your LASIK surgery time and date.  The day after your surgery, you will return to your regular eye doctor for your post operative care.

So if you’r thinking about LASIK surgery, don’t trust a radio advertisement, call your eye doctor…and there’s a very good chance they will recommend Dr. Mayo or Dr. Wade at Eye Center of Texas.
