This is an excellent question.

The most important thing you should consider when trying to decide where to have your LASIK surgery performed is the experience of the surgeon that will be performing your procedure.

Unfortunately some people put price as the most important thing when trying to decide where to have their surgery performed. Price is an important consideration, but there are a lot of other variables and factors that should go into your thought process before making a decision on your refractive eye surgeon. We have seen people that have been hurt by laser eye surgery and everyone of those patients said that they wished they would have done more research on the experience of the surgeon that performed their eye surgery.

If you buy a car that is a lemon and it breaks down you can always buy another car. Unfortunately if you choose the wrong eye surgeon and you have a problem with your vision you can’t just buy a new pair of eyes. When buying real estate there is a saying “location, location, location” when searching for a place to have LASIK eye surgery you should think “most experienced surgeon, most experienced surgeon, most experienced surgeon”. We have found that in many instances the price is the same between the most experienced surgeon and the surgeon with less experience. It’s just a matter of doing the research to find the most experienced surgeon. Dr. Burger has helped more people achieve 20/20 or better vision after LASIK than any other surgeon living in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, or Kentucky.
