Are you considering LASIK? One thing that often stands in many people’s way of undergoing the procedure is the cost.
It may seem appealing to get LASIK for a low, low price, but it comes with a cost. The term “Big LASIK” refers to chains that offer LASIK at seemingly too good to be true prices rather than independent eyecare practices. When you choose “Big LASIK,” you’re likely compromising in other ways, like:
Rushed Patient Evaluations
Having LASIK with places that make LASIK seem more affordable than you ever thought possible is appealing, but there are often extremely high turnover rates. Patients may be unable to get the time or attention required to truly build a relationship with their surgeon.
During your consultation at a big LASIK center, you may spend little to no time with the surgeon that will be performing your LASIK procedure. You may not even know the name of the surgeon who will be performing the procedure.
But when you choose LASIK at Visionary Eye Doctors, we take the time necessary to ensure you qualify for LASIK. You’ll know the name of your surgeon and will be with them every step of the way.
Choosing Big LASIK companies like LASIK Vision Institute to perform your LASIK procedure may mean you cannot build a relationship with your surgeon before having the procedure. As you only have one set of eyes, you must feel comfortable with the person performing the vision correction procedure.
You may not get this opportunity because when you choose the Big LASIK route, the focus is on volume instead of personal care. LASIK surgeons at big LASIK centers are often pressured to perform as many LASIK procedures in a day as is physically possible, even if it’s at the expense of the patient and the overall results.
Patients choosing these centers may be seen as a means to an end and told that they qualify for LASIK even if it’s not the best choice for them. You’ll never have this when you’re choosing a comprehensive eyecare practice like Visionary Eye Doctors. We only recommend LASIK to patients that are qualified to undergo the procedure.
Surgeons with Less Experience
Big LASIK surgeons may be less experienced due to higher levels of turnover and increased patient volumes. Rather than prioritizing patients and ensuring their eyes are safe and healthy, the priority is performing LASIK on as many patients as possible daily.
When you choose a comprehensive eye care practice like Visionary Eye Doctors, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve chosen experienced LASIK surgeons who’ve performed the vision correction procedure on many happy patients.
