Searching about LASIK

For past few days, I was searching for some good information about Vision related procedures, specially about the LASIK eye surgery. LASIK eye surgery is a treatment that is done to reshape the cornea in order to produce clear vision. I was searching these information for a good friend of mine.

After lots of search, I found a really useful website. It is called This site provides latest news and valuable information about different health care procedures and technologies. After browsing through the different pages of the site, I found it very reliable. Their "Patient Education Topics" includes Bariatrics, Cosmetic Surgery, Dentistry, Dermatology, Fertility and Vision. DocShop provides you a direct connection to doctors, dentists and other medical professionals near you, through their "Find a Doctor" section. The video section of DocShop aims at providing news and information in an interactive way. You must watch their educational videos.

What I learned about lasik treatment from this site? LASIK surgery can treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism, and even reduce patients’ dependency on contact lenses and glasses. Many people thinks that LASIK eye surgey is very costly. But the truth is that, LASIK cost depends on the patient's degree of refractive error and the area of the country the procedure is performed. Even in some places, there are financing options for LASIK surgery.

LASIK patients should be at least 18 years old and patients who have experienced an eye infection or injury in the past year should not undergo the treatment. After the surgery many patients experience immediate improved vision. But in general, it can take up to six months for vision to stabilize. The important point is that only one to five percent patients experience complications due to LASIK surgery.

I am very pleased with the volume and quality of information that DocShop provided about LASIK. For more information you can read their FAQs and Testimonials. Even they can help you to find the right surgeon in your state. Use their comprehensive directory and locate the qualified LASIK eye surgeon, near to you.

To gather more knowledge about Anti-aging, Beauty, Diet & Exercise, Health and Lifestyle, don't forget to read their "News and Features" section. Their photo galleries allows you to view actual patients who have undergone different types of cosmetic treatments. And if you are interested to know more about the technologies behind the different health care procedures, read their "Technology" section.

Now, I consider as my best guide for trusted medical information. What about you? Use them to make confident decisions about health care and improve the quality of your life. Because, a Healthy Life means a Happy Life!
