What you need to know about preparation, surgery and recovery
Our doctors are often asked if they would have laser eye surgery themselves. Here is an interesting article on a study that was done in United States of America.
It was carried out to find out how many eye surgeons who perform laser vision correction (refractive surgeons) would actually get it done themselves and recommend it to their immediate family members.
This survey was based on 250 surgeons with a 99.2% response rate (248 out of 250 responded) and here’s what it found:
Refractive surgeons know more about refractive surgery than anybody and are very critical when it comes to risks and benefits
107 surgeons from this group were suitable for laser vision correction and 96% of them had actually had the procedure done
95% were completely or mostly satisfied with their outcomes
Overall more than 90% had recommended laser eye surgery to adult members of their immediate family.
So this study showed that refractive surgeons were significantly more likely to have the procedure in their own eyes than the general public.
So, if laser eye surgery is good enough for eye surgeons, it’s good enough for you, right?
