What should I ask the PTK surgeon at the consultation?

The section titled ‘Laser Eye Surgery: General FAQS’ has a list of questions which you can use. These apply to all forms of eye surgery although you may want to include questions specific to this procedure.

For example:

  • Can I combine this procedure with another which treats refractive errors, such as PRK?
  • Can this procedure treat any form of corneal disease?
  • What will my eyesight be like after this procedure?
  • Will this mean a ‘lighter’ prescription (less severe)?

As with any procedure, it is a good idea to talk to a range of different surgeons and research this thoroughly before going ahead.
