Rating : 5 Best Cataract Surgeon Laguna Hills - reviews

"Dr. George Salib really knows his stuff. He's a true expert, professional and extremely knowledgeable opthalmalogist. I was scared when 2 different eye incidences occurred on myself. Each time was a different diagnosis by him; however, the symptoms were very similar. I won't be specific in the diagnosis but I just knew that he knew what he was talking about. I was so stressed about the problem with my eye until Dr. Salib gave my eyes a thorough exam and told me the problem."
When setting out to select the best cataract surgeon, it is important to consider your needs and your budget. Cataract procedures have an extremely high success rate and can be a life-changing event for patients. Because it is such a common procedure, many patients begin by asking for referrals from friends, family, and coworkers.

Here are some things you may want to ask when seeking referrals
  • Is the office staff friendly and accommodating?
  • Is the billing and payment process easy to understand?
  • Does the surgeon take time during the consultation to explain the procedure and ask questions?
  • Were you made aware of different options for lenses?
  • Are you happy with your vision after the procedure?
Another great place for referrals is from the optometrist who diagnosed your cataracts.

When you visit different surgeons for cataract consultation, it is important that you feel open enough to ask any questions you have about the procedure. You'll want to ask if there have been any outbreaks of eye infections, and about the post-operative follow-up care.

For patients who are interested in premium IOLs, you'll want to know about your options. A surgeon who is experienced in premium lenses will be able to advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of all the options. Beware of any surgeons who promise perfect vision. Even after cataract surgery with premium lenses, patients may still require eyeglasses in certain situations.

Post-op follow-up is another important aspect of cataract surgery. You'll want to make sure that your surgeon has clear guidelines set for follow-up and advises you of any complications that may arise and explains how they will be handled.

Making the decision for premium IOLs lies solely in the hands of the patient so it is best to do your homework before the consultation. If the surgeon does not offer premium lenses, it is good to find out their reasoning and then make sure to visit with one who does in order to obtain a second opinion.

Once you've found the best cataract surgeon, you should feel confident in your decision to correct your vision.
