How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings of area eyewear outlets reveal sizeable differences in customer satisfaction. We'll point you toward businesses that provide excellent service and low prices.

While there are several laser-eye-surgery options, LASIK surgery currently is by far the most common and, for most consumers, best option.

Before deciding to undergo laser eye surgery, discuss with a physician whether or not you are a good candidate for the various procedures. Surgery won’t help some types of vision problems and some surgical options are inappropriate for some people.

Most laser eye surgery patients experience dramatic improvement in how well they can see without eyeglasses or contacts. But there is still a chance that laser eye surgery might not completely correct your vision.

The most important thing you can do to assure yourself high-quality medical care is to form a strong relationship with a good primary care physician and, at times, together make informed decisions on specialty care. We identify top area doctors.

Once you have identified doctors who are potential candidates, you may want to get answers to several questions about each. Here’s a list of things to ask.

Whichever doctor you select, how you interact with the doctor will have a big effect on the success of your care. Here are some suggestions on how to get the best care from doctors.
