LASIK in the Fearful Patient
LASIK is a popular procedure and many patients have benefited from this amazing technology. Still, Dr. Jeffrey Martin finds that there are two main barriers that hold patients back from having their vision corrected. Price is one factor that can prevent patients from getting LASIK eye surgery. However, the cost of the procedure can be covered by zero percent financing, discounted insurance plans, and flexible spending accounts. Dr. Martin finds that fear is a greater overall spoiler for patients and he deals with patient fear in a few specific ways.
First, Dr. Martin uses only the best technology. Every LASIK procedure is done with iLASIK, a completely blade-free and custom procedure. This dramatically reduces the chance of complications. At Dr. Martin's Long Island LASIK practice the emphasis is on experience. Patients feel more comfortable when they know that their surgeon has been a leader in laser vision correction and that he/she has been performing many LASIK procedures for years.
Dr. Martin also handles all of patient pre and postoperative care. Many of our patients are not comfortable with meeting their eye surgeon on the day of surgery.
