A lasik surgery has its own risks and complications and these factors are strongly connected with the surgeon's skill and experience. First of all, only an ophtalmologist is permitted to perform a lasik surgery, and you must assure that he is also a member of the Academy. You might need the one with the best reputation in the profession since your treasured vision depends on his competency. When consulting the surgeon you should make sure that he is giving all the information you will be needing. He has to assure you that he has been performing refractive surgery procedures for more than three years, and that his licence to perform refractive surgery has never been suspended or restricted. At the end of the meeting you should be confident that he is the right man for the job. Do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion. After all, your vision is at stake.
