Video: Choosing an Eye Surgeon
Choosing an eye surgeon is the most important step patients take in ensuring the success of their refractive surgery. It is important that you find an eye surgeon with the right tools and technology for the job, but it is equally important to find one that actually cares about you and the outcome of your surgery. Our largest source of referrals is word-of-mouth recommendations from satisfied patients.
