Please Describe Your Situation::
I am having the surgery done on the 21st of this month but still so scared and not sure of which way to go। I am scheduled for intralase and was told to call if I chose the microkeratome instead। I have been up and down with this choice and need some advise. The cost between the two is a 2000 dollar difference. I don’t want to sacrifice my eyes for the better deal, but think that is a bit much for the use of a different machine. Will I still get a good quality surgery if I chose the micro instead. Is is better to have the laser do it all or can you even tell me the difference? My eyes are only a – 1.50 and -1.25…..do you know the chance or percentage that I may face an enhancement. That has a lot to do with which option to take as well I think. Any information will help me. Thank you so much.

Answer
These are issues you need to discuss with your surgeon. 2000 dollar difference may not be worth the trouble. Trust in the surgeon is of paramount need.
