Set an Appointment with an Eye Doctor or Specialist

By: Josh Alan


If you are in need of a cataract surgery procedure, corneal transplantation surgery or are interested in laser eye surgery (LASIK), you'll want to find an experienced eye doctor or specialist whom you can trust.

A good eye doctor will be able to provide you with a sound diagnosis, complete information about what will be done to your eyes, a list of alternatives, and realistic expectations on the risks and payoffs of your surgery.

Each eye surgery is unique and the risks, healing time and invasiveness of any particular surgery varies based upon the operation and the patient. Most eye surgeries are outpatient procedures and patients generally experience minimal or no pain following them. Cataract surgery and corneal transplantation surgery both require either localized or general anesthesia. Your eye doctor or specialist will work with you to determine the level of anesthesia necessary for your operation.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for eye surgery and to learn more about what you can expect before, during and after an operation is to schedule a consultation with an experienced eye specialist.

If you live in or near North Carolina, or are looking for a highly qualified eye doctor in the Durham or Raleigh area, consider setting up an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Alan Carlson. Dr. Carlson is one of the most experienced and respected eye specialists in the United States.

Dr. Carlson has decades of experience with eye surgery and is a full-time member of the Duke Eye Center, Raleigh, where he is Professor of Ophthalmology and Chief of Corneal and Refractive Surgery Service.
