Can You Get LASIK Satisfaction?

Lately, it seems like ads for LASIK are popping up everywhere—DJ’s are talking about it on the radio and newscasters sing its praises, especially if they didn’t like wearing glasses on camera. And it’s no wonder. The technology is incredibly precise, the operation is quick, and people are happy with the results. But still, it’s not for everybody, and not every “deal” is really a good value—we are talking your precious, one-of-a-kind eyes, after all. So before you jump in, make sure you look for a board-certified ophthalmologist who explains every consideration.

Who’s an Ideal Candidate?

An ideal candidate for LASIK is someone with healthy eyes, age 21 or older, who has not had recent significant changes in his or her prescription. Low to moderate amounts of nearsightedness and astigmatism are best corrected by LASIK, but farsightedness can also be correctable. Overall, happiest patients are those who were extremely dependent on glasses or contact lenses. They would be legally blind without them! After LASIK, it’s amazing for them to have clear vision without putting in contacts or reaching for glasses.

But…

Even though LASIK is very successful in offering freedom from eyeglasses and contact lens wear for patients who want hassle-free vision, we still find that it is not right for everyone. There are a lot of things to consider prior to LASIK. We make sure we explain them all in the preoperative visits so we can provide a customized experience for every single patient. For example, a key question to ask your surgeon would be about dry eyes after LASIK. People with a significant amount of dry eye may not the best candidates, but there may be other vision correction procedures available to them.

Technology Matters

LASIK and other refractive procedures evolve over time, and it’s important to choose a practice that offers up-to-date techniques and technology. The newest machines are faster and more accurate, which leads to fewer complications and more patient comfort It’s important to us that we offer patients the best care we can.

Još od ranog djetinjstva bio sam oduševljen oftalmologijom, za mene najljepšom granom medicine. Pošto sam ujedno bio i dijete profesora oftalmologije, za mene je put moje karijere bio sasvim jasan i vidljiv. Nakon završetka srednje škole i uspešnog okončanja studija na Medicinskom fakultetu Banja Luka, radio sam sve što je bilo moguće kako bih se jednog dana mogao zvati i „oftalmologom.“ Sreća mi se osmijehnula, te sam nedugo po završteku studija dobio specijalizaciju iz oftalmologije u Kliničkom centru Banja Luka.

Trud i rad svakog ambicioznog i vrijednog studenta je bezvrijedan ako uz njega nije talentovan, požrtvovan i nesebičan mentor. U mom slučaju, to su bila dvojica ljudi koji su mi omogućili da u profesionalnom smislu postanem ovo što danas jesam. Prva osoba je moj pokojni otac, koji mi nije samo prenio ljubav prema oftalmologiji, nego je bio i najveća podrška mojoj karijeri. Druga osoba je moj „drugi otac“, prof. Nikica Gabrić, osnivač i vlasnik Klinika Svjetlost. On me je učio ne samo oftalmologiji i najnovijim vještinama, nego i filozofiji i psihologiji života. Zahvaljujući njemu, danas sam ne samo bolji oftalmolog, nego i bolji čovjek.

Liječenje bolesti oka nije uvijek lako, ali je sigurno uvijek interesantno. Živjeti i raditi u zemlji u razvoju i regionu punom izazova nije nikada bez uzbuđenja. Stoga sa ponosom mogu da kažem da sam bio dio tima koji je, sada već davne 2008. godine, prvi put izveo operaciju laserske korekcije dioptrije u Bosni i Hercegovini. Danas su refraktivne hirurške procedure, kao što su LASIK, Epi-LASIK, PRK i LASEK dio moje svakodnevne rutine i istinski nikada ne bih mogao biti srećniji zbog toga.

Osim mojih svakodnevnih stručnih i naučnih aktivnosti, uživam i u menadžerskim poslovima. Već skoro osam godina na čelu sam Klinike Svjetlost u Banjaluci. Svi moji saradnici, doktori i medicinske sestre, su vrijedni mladi ljudi na koje sam svaki dan sve više ponosan.
