    Question:

    Is it best to select a cataract surgeon who also does LASIK when looking for someone to do post-LASIK cataract surgery?


    Answer:

    When selecting a cataract surgeon, I recommend relying on the recommendations of others—family, friends, etc. It is best to pick the best cataract surgeon as those that do not do LASIK usually have arrangements with other surgeons to perform laser vision correction if necessary. What’s most important is that you select a surgeon who is comfortable with post-LASIK cataract surgery. If you choose a surgeon who does both, that definitely works. But is not a requirement for good surgical results.
