lasik
Margarette S asked:

I went to lasik and they gave me quotes for regular lasik and then a more expensive quote for the newest technology. Is it really worth the extra $1000?? Both do the same thing and people have great outcomes with both…Anyone ever been?

    It depends on what the “newest technology” is. Previously, some doctors used a metal blade to cut the corneal flap. In many cases, they now use a laser to make the incision. Without more information about the technology, I couldn’t say.

    My recommendation would be to talk with your doctor about the pros / cons of each option, and if necessary, get a second opinion from another doctor. I wouldn’t let cost dictate your decision at all – these are your eyes you’re talking about – and $1000 is not a big difference in cost.

    You dont want to take chances with your eyes. I would pay 1000 more.
