Health Tip: LASIK Eye Surgery

Questions to ask the surgeon

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're considering LASIK eye surgery, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission says you should ask potential surgeons the following questions before committing yourself:

  • How long have you performed LASIK surgery?
  • How do you define success and what is your success rate?
  • What type of laser will you be using? (Make sure the device is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.)
  • What's involved in after-surgery care?
  • What are the risks and possible complications?
