The LASIK procedure is not something to be rushed into. As any other surgery, you should spend careful time researching the procedure, talking to people who have had it, interviewing your LASIK practice and surgeon, and getting your finances in order to get the surgery.
Perhaps the most important part of the process is the decision of which professional is going to do your surgery. This is no small decision - this is the person who will be changing your vision, and potentially your life forever. Trusting this person and having a good, sincere rapport with them is essential.
By going for a first consultation, you'll get more information about the LASIK procedure, take a tour of the office, meet the office staff, and meet the surgeon themselves. It is here that you should feel comfortable to ask any unanswered questions and discuss your financing options. If you don't feel comfortable at any time, or if you feel like your questions are being unheard or ignored, move on. The place with which you'll feel most comfortable will stand out among the others immediately.
Also consider experience. You wouldn't want to see a dentist who has only worked on a few sets of teeth. Now think about your eyes! Look for the doctors who not only have the most comfortable offices and friendly staff, but the most number of successful surgeries under their belt, and the doctors who regularly keep up on their practices and technology.
