The eye is one of the most complex organs in our bodies. It responds and reacts to light, it allows us to interpret the outside world. If you are contemplating vision corrective surgery then finding the right surgeon for your procedure is priority. The surgeon and his or her team will dictate how successful your procedure is. The more successful your operation the better your vision will be after eye surgery.
Finding the Right Eye Surgeon
The UK is blessed with having some of the best eye surgeons in the world. Many surgeons that live and work here are in such demand that they work all over the world. In some Harley Street Clinics you will find pioneers in the field of eyesight surgery. To that end the following criteria will help you choose the best eye surgeon for your vision corrective procedure.
Experience – Surgeons are obviously very clever people. It takes years of study to become a surgeon, and in that time all surgeons gain plenty of experience. This is regardless of their field. That said some surgeons have so much knowledge in the field of corrective vision that they pioneered the procedures to correct eyesight. A few have published papers to guide their peers.
And this worth checking out. Has your surgeon been awarded a Fellowship in Corneal and Refractive Surgery? Have they pioneered any procedures? Have they written published papers on the subject? Do they instruct? How hands on are they? Are they influential in the running of the clinic? What are their success rates for your vision correction procedure? How many corrective vision procedures similar to yours has the surgeon performed?
Never be afraid to ask questions of this kind. It is your eyesight we are talking about after all.
Testimonials / Reviews – Though most testimonials focus on the clinic overall, and quite right too, often the former patient will talk about their surgeon. Read a few of the reviews to determine how well thought of the surgeon is. How well received he was in the eyes of the reviewer (no pun). This can be quite enlightening where the surgeon is concerned.
Personable – When you meet your surgeon how well do they come across? Masters in their field make what they do look effortless. A singer can belt out a tune as if it was the most natural thing in the world. A dancer appears to float rather than using their feet. An eye surgeon will be able to talk about your procedure as easily as you or I can go shopping. This in itself will put you at ease.
Your Eye Surgeon
Undergoing eye surgery can be stressful. We rely on our eyes so much that the prospect of losing vision is horrifying. It is why we have sympathy for people who have. This is why your eye surgeon has to be all worlds. He or she has to have the credentials to show they are a master in their field, and be able to put you at ease.
If you look through our list of our eye surgeons you will see they are the best in their field. They more than fulfil the outlined criteria, and they are in demand all over the world. Call us today, or contact us by email. Your eyes will be in the finest hands in the world.
