While eye surgery is extremely quick and safe; it is perfectly normal to suffer from pre-op nerves. You want to keep the nerves to a minimum and to set your mind at rest you need to have confidence in the surgeon and that you are going to get the best of treatment.
In order to give you this peace of mind there are a few questions you can ask your surgeon or eye doctor in the run up to the surgery. These questions are outlined below.
Question 1 – What are your Qualifications?
This has to be one of the most important questions to ask if you want to ensure the person doing your operation is competent. Ideally, the website of the hospital you are choosing will have displayed the qualifications of each and every doctor and surgeon on their staff. That way you can quickly and easily access the information. If the information is not there or you want to know more you can ask the doctors and surgeons directly.
