You're tired of bad eyesight. You've decided to have Lasik. What's next? After you've decided to undergo Lasik corrective eye surgery, you'll need to think about finding a reputable Lasik surgeon. There are several ways to go about locating and choosing the best Lasik surgeon for you.

The first place to look when choosing your Lasik surgeon is the Lasik website, at www.lasikinstitute.org. When you visit the Lasik website you will find tools that make it easy to locate Lasik surgeons in your area. Lasik makes this search as easy for you as possible by providing the list of surgeons and doing the research for you. Once you've located a list of the doctors in your area, it's time to narrow down your search. If you live in an area where there are no Lasik doctors available, you need to decide if this procedure is worth traveling to another city. Lasik, with all of its great benefits, may prove worth that effort. Keep in mind, however, that some people do suffer more pain, or interpret pain differently, than others. So you may not feel like travelling for several days after surgery. In that case, a clinic in your own town or city would be best for you.

Once you have narrowed down your list of Lasik surgeons, you need to look for one simple characteristic # experience. Experience is the most important deciding factor to consider when choosing your Lasik surgeon. With plenty of experience and the proper technology at their disposal, a good surgeon develops a reputation fairly quickly. You will be able to choose the perfect Lasik surgeon for you by talking to former patients, reading opinions on web sites, and asking friends and coworkers for the "word on the street."
