If you have any prior medical record from your Optometrist , please bring them in so Dr.Chebil can review the history of your vision .
As for the risk of LASIK, If you are a good candidate for LASIK and your surgeon is dedicated to the field, experienced, and knowledgeable, LASIK is very safe. Scientific military studies document that astronauts, Navy SEALS, and pilots have had the procedure. Dr. Chebil has operated on thousands of patients with extremely high demands on their vision, from SWAT snipers to professional athletes. From the beginning of her practice, Dr.Chebil has emphasized the need for stringent screening, attention to detail, and the highest level of surgical skill to minimize potential risks to patients having LASIK.
