Are you considering having LASIK eye surgery in Charlotte, NC? Not sure how to determine what practice to go to or who is the best LASIK surgeon in Charlotte? At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, we specifically recommend considering the following about the eye doctor who’s doing your surgery when deciding where to go to have LASIK.

  • The LASIK surgeon should do your initial consultation. Only a LASIK surgeon is qualified to properly evaluate you for surgery. During your consultation you need to ask the eye doctor if they will be doing your surgery. Just because they are wearing scrubs or a lab coat does not make them a surgeon.
  • Experience Matters. You should understand how long your surgeon has been doing LASIK and more importantly how consistently they perform LASIK.
  • Training. Make sure your surgeon is board-certified. You can look this up on Healthgrades. It is also ideal if your LASIK surgeon is a cornea specialist as LASIK is surgery on the cornea of your eye.
  • Bedside Manner. You need to like this person! This is a person you are going to trust with your vision. It’s important that you feel comfortable when speaking with them.

LASIK is only performed by ophthalmologists. Ophthalmologists have received a medical degree (MD), which is what provides them the training to perform surgery. LASIK is a procedure done on the cornea of your eye. For this reason it’s important that your surgeon is a cornea specialist, having completed a cornea fellowship which is an additional year of training. Dr. Mozayeni at Providence Eye is a fellowship-trained cornea specialist. He is one of the few cornea specialists performing and specializing in LASIK eye surgery in Charlotte, NC.

The Best LASIK Surgeons Don’t Do LASIK on Everyone

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times – make sure you meet your LASIK surgeon during your consultation. Why? Believe it or not, not everyone is a candidate for LASIK. It is critically important for your doctor to not only understand the health of your eye to ensure you are a good LASIK candidate, but for him or her to understand your lifestyle and how you use your vision. With this information, your doctor can make a recommendation specific to you and your eyes, not the person who sat in the chair before you.

Don’t just ask your doctor how many procedures he or she has done, ask them how many people they turn away. Sounds like a weird question, huh? It’s not, because you need to know that your eye surgeon only does surgery on people that are qualified LASIK candidates. Again, not everyone is a candidate for LASIK. At Providence Eye, you’re in good hands with Dr. Mozayeni. He believes in being the best, not the busiest, so he will never do surgery on someone that is not a candidate.
