    Here are some question you can ask before the lasik surgery: 1.How long have you been performing refractive surgery? 2.How many refractive procedures have you performed in the last 12 months? 3.What percentage of your patients receives 20/40 vision or better? 4.What percentage of your patients report unresolved complications six months after surgery? 5.What is the worst refractive surgery outcome experienced by your own patient? How was it handled? 6.What kinds of complications, for example, dry eyes, starbursts, "haloes," fluctuations, blurring of distance vision, and so forth, occur and how soon do they disappear?

    You need to first and foremost take the qualifications and experience of your LASIK surgeon into account. It is may well more important than the surgical equipment. In terms of that, you may ask the doctor how long have he been doing such kind of surgery and how many how many refractive procedures have he performed totally. Besides, there are more question you may inquire such as: What did you handle the worst refractive surgery outcome experienced by your own patient? Have you ever had malpractice insurance coverage denied? If an enhancement surgery is required, what will you charge for the additional procedure? In conclusion, you should know will about your doctor's skills to make sure that he is good at this kind of surgery.
