Which kind of LASIK do you recommend for me, and how many procedures of that type have you performed?

There are two commonly performed types of LASIK: conventional and bladeless. In both LASIK procedures, a corneal flap is created. The surgeon then uses a medical laser to reshape the underlying layers of the cornea. The difference between the two procedures is what device is used to create the corneal flap. As the name implies, bladeless LASIK creates the corneal flap with the use of a laser instead of the thin blade used in conventional LASIK. It is important to know which style of LASIK the surgeon thinks is best for you and how many of those procedures she has successfully performed.
