CHOOSING AN EYE SURGEON
The key requirements for choosing who to go to are as follows:
Firstly, make sure that your specialist has the appropriate qualifications and is well regarded. You can check this by talking to your GP or optometrist. If you really want, you can check with the medical Board which allows you to check online whether there are any complaints against them.
Secondly, make sure that you see a specialist who is experienced in the area relevant to your problem. You want to ensure that your specialist of choice is experienced in the procedure that you need and has performed many of them.
They need to be up with the latest information and latest equipment particularly given that ophthalmology is very high tech area and constantly changing.
Needless to say, an approachable and friendly practice is best. Ask others who have used them about their experience.
Finally you need to have confidence that what you are being told is in your best interest and not in theirs.
