Undergoing laser eye surgery "a big decision"

Undergoing laser eye surgery "a big decision"

Anyone considering undergoing laser eye surgery in the near future has been advised to take their time considering if it is the best option for them.

According to Dr John DeStafeno, the resident West Chester LASIK surgeon at Chester County Eye Care Associates, people need to thoroughly research their laser eye surgeon and practice before they go for an evaluation.

They should consider the entire process from evaluation to follow-up as they determine whether they want to undergo the procedure, he noted.

He added that people should also consider the annual cost of their glasses and whether the surgery is going to be cost-effective.

Dr DeStafeno commented: "We understand that this is a big decision and people have some reservations, but we know what a safe and effective treatment we have to enhance people"s quality of life and the sooner you do it, the longer you will have to enjoy the benefit."

Recently, actor Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO in the Star Wars films, revealed how a new form of laser eye surgery, known as Laser Blended Vision, cured his presbyopia.
