To be able to enjoy its full benefits, a patients must first understand the procedures, benefits and downside of LASIK. Patients must first remember that LASIK is not for everyone, they need to undergo an eye exam and consider the risk and benefits of a LASIK surgery as it may lead to dry eyes syndrome, over or under correction. Also, consider finding the right surgeon who will perform the surgery as it plays an important role in the success of your treatment. If you are anywhere near Sun City in Arizona, who else would be the best eye doctor to perfom LASIK, the inventor himself Dr. Peyman who heads the Arizona Retinal Specialists (arizonaretinalspecialists.com).
