Some diagnoses can be serious and a patient may want a second opinion. As a leader and innovator in the eye care field, Kung Eye Center is uniquely qualified to offer one. Getting a second opinion is a good way to ensure you get a correct and thorough diagnosis and treatment plan.  There are a variety of reasons to seek a second opinion and it is your right as a patient to do so.

You may wish to seek a second opinion if:

  • You feel you have been diagnosed incorrectly with an eye disease.
  • You wish to confirm your candidacy for eye surgery such as LASIK.
  • You are not satisfied with your physician’s responses to your questions or concerns.
  • You wish to see if a different doctor can offer a new perspective to a situation or offer a different course of treatment.
  • Your contacts sometimes fall out or are poorly fitted.
  • You just don’t feel satisfied with your current care.

In many cases, you will not need a referral for a second opinion. However, if you do require a referral, simply ask your current physician or eye doctor, and mention your concern. While some people may feel intimidated or do not want to offend their current doctor, there is no need to worry. Any doctor should be open to the idea of a second opinion in order to best meet their client’s needs. It is also important to keep open communication between yourself and your physicians to increase the potential for the best outcomes.

Some tips to prepare for a second opinion visit include:

  • Learn as much as you can on your own about your situation, and try to determine which type of treatment you would like.
  • Write down any concerns that you have so that you can discuss them with your second doctor.
  • Write down a list of questions you may have for your second doctor. These questions may cover many topics, including your treatment options, the benefits and risks of these options, and what may happen if you choose to wait on treatment.
