Chu Vision Institute, a leading vision correction practice in the Twin Cities area, has recently published an article that indicates the “Questions to Ask to Find the Best LASIK Surgeon for You in Minneapolis.” Asking the appropriate questions when looking for a LASIK surgeon in the Minneapolis area is crucial because the surgeon selected will have a significant impact on the outcome of the procedure for a particular patient.
Dr. Ralph Chu from Chu Vision Institute says, “It’s important to do your research and ask the right questions when evaluating LASIK surgeons in Minneapolis, MN. Because not all LASIK surgeons are the same, it is important to understand what makes one LASIK doctor unique from another. At Chu Vision Institute, we want to make sure that you get individualized care, are knowledgeable about your options for vision correction in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul area and are comfortable with your choice to have LASIK surgery with our highly qualified LASIK specialist. It’s important to evaluate all of the pertinent factors when choosing a LASIK surgeon.”
One important question to ask is how the LASIK surgeon determines if a particular patient is a good candidate for LASIK. A good candidate should have already reached ocular maturity, which is around age 18, have healthy corneas, and has farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. Furthermore, the patient’s prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses needs to be stable. At Chu Vision Institute, they perform a thorough diagnostic exam using the most modern technology and do several tests to assess eye health, from front to back. After the thorough examination, the doctor will discuss with the patient the best possible vision correction option that is specifically suitable for the person, including other relevant details about the patient’s eye health and lifestyle.
Another key question to ask is how the LASIK surgeon will handle follow-up care and keep track of the patient’s progress. These post-operative visits will enable the surgeon to keep track of the patient’s recovery and make sure there are no problems. During this period, patients are encouraged to ask any questions or voice any worries they may have while they are recovering.
It is also a good idea to ask about the LASIK technology the surgeon is using. Vision correction technology is very dynamic and utilizing the most advanced methods such as bladeless LASIK, all-laser LASIK, and custom wavefront LASIK, allows the surgeon to customize the procedure for each patient. At Chu Vision Institute, they use cutting edge excimer laser technology, which is so accurate it’s possible to draw letters on a strand of human hair.
It is also essential to ask surgeons whether they only do LASIK, or if they can provide the complete portfolio of refractive vision correction procedures, including PRK and SMILE. It is important to note that there is no one vision correction procedure that is appropriate for all patients. It is, therefore, vital to find a surgeon that is not only capable of doing LASIK but also the other advanced alternatives. At Chu Vision Institute, they have expertise in a range of vision correction procedures, and they will always do their best to provide each patient with the best possible results. They will never recommend a particular procedure that a patient is not a good candidate for.
