What questions should I ask before vision correction surgery?

Refractive surgeries require healthy eyes that are free from retinal problems, corneal scars and any eye disease. Beyond side effects, there are other questions to ask before deciding on refractive surgery, such as:

  • Will my insurance cover the cost?
  • How long will my recovery take?
  • Will there be any activity restrictions after surgery?

As technology progresses more and more, it is very important that you explore all options and possibilities before deciding which vision repair treatment is right for you.
