Key Takeaways

When considering LASIK, it’s crucial to look beyond just the cost and delve into the factors that determine the procedure's quality and safety. Is all LASIK considered equal? No. The question then becomes, how do you ensure you are making an informed choice? Learn more about what makes San Antonio Eye Specialists unique and worthy of your consideration for laser vision correction. 

Surgeon Credentials & Experience

One of the main areas to focus on is the credentials and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure. At San Antonio Eye Specialists, we take immense pride in our fellowship-trained refractive surgeons, Dr. Nader Iskander and Dr. Timothy Lindquist, who brings over 20 and 15 years of surgical experience, respectively. They have received specialized training under the guidance of world-renowned mentors and have even co-authored book chapters about LASIK. Our surgeons make it a point to meet with all their patients before any surgical intervention, ensuring a thorough discussion of visual options and lifestyle considerations to provide tailored visual freedom from glasses and contacts.

Facility Technology & Capabilities

Technology also plays a vital role in the LASIK procedure. We are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art diagnostics to take detailed measurements and images of the eye, aiding our surgeons in crafting a custom treatment plan. Our all-laser LASIK technology ensures faster healing and a quick return to daily activities, demonstrating our commitment to providing efficient and high-quality care.
