In the last years LASIK has certainly become the most popular way of correcting vision problems at least in the United States and Canada. However, despite the fact that the overall price people had to pay for becoming LASIK patients has considerably dropped in the last period, it is still an expensive intervention that not everyone can afford.
Therefore when it comes to becoming a LASIK patient, a lot of people have to decide between going for a cheaper intervention, in a LASIK center that does not have the best doctors or equipment, or spending more and benefitting from the most modern equipment and most renowned doctors.
Most LASIK patients don’t necessarily make the difference between the two options stated in the above paragraph, thinking that if the results is the same, improving their vision, there is no point in spending more for going to a better LASIK center. And yes, in most cases, things go the same whether you decide to go for a cheaper intervention or a more expensive one. But what happens when results would have been better if more modern equipment would have been used?
In certain cases a truly skilled doctor and the latest equipment can make the difference between perfect vision and a slight improvement. Of course you cannot know for sure at the moment when you have to make a decision, but think about your health and realize that it is worth a lot more than a sum of money.
