Cost is probably a big factor (maybe the biggest factor) in your deciding who does your laser correction procedure. As a rule, we have found that the most perfectionist laser providers tend to have the higher fees. By the same token, we also find that the least perfectionist laser providers tend to have the lower fees.
Interestingly, you will likely find that, no matter who does your surgery, the difference in your vision afterward compared to before will be dramatic. Therefore, you may readily conclude that your outcome was a great success. We have seen several patients with generally poor results who were ecstatic with their vision. It’s only after the initial novelty wears off that they wonder whether it could have been better. Paying somewhat more up-front is a reasonable way to eliminate that uncertainty.
When it comes to a permanently life-changing procedure like laser surgery, choosing a perfectionist is the way to live with no regrets. We think this deserves careful thought because your vision is meant to be one of life’s greatest enjoyments.
