Trusted LASIK Surgeons Launches Revolutionary LASIK Surgeons Directory Service to Help Consumers Find the Best LASIK Surgeons in America
Preferred Doctors Network, Inc. d/b/a Trusted LASIK Surgeons (Trusted LASIK Surgeons) announced today that it has launched its revolutionary Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory service for consumers at http://www.TrustedLASIKSurgeons.com What sets the Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory service apart is a unique screening process ensuring that only the best LASIK surgeons in the United States are included. The qualifications and standards used by Trusted LASIK Surgeons include the following:
1. Participation in FDA refractive vision correction studies.
2. Publication of a research article involving refractive eye surgery in a major peer-reviewed eye journal.
3. Presentation about a refractive surgery topic (such as LASIK) at a major meeting of eye doctors.
4. Board certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
5. A minimum of 10 years experience in refractive surgery and at least 2000 procedures.
6. Managing complications from LASIK and other vision correction surgeries of patients who were first operated on by another surgeon.
7. Well-rounded refractive surgeons who perform not just LASIK but lens implants and other refractive surgery procedures.
8. Have performed surgery on other eye surgeons, optometrists, opticians, and employees of companies that specialize in refractive surgery instrumentation or their families.
9. Membership in American Academy of Ophthalmology and at least one other major refractive society.
10. Certified in the use of IntraLase for "all-laser" LASIK and Wavefront-based ("Customized") LASIK and PRK.
11. Academic Appointments in the Ophthalmology departments at major universities.
Less than 1 percent of all LASIK Surgeons in the United States meet all of the above criteria.
The Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory will include some surgeons who meet most but not all of the above qualifications in order to help consumers find the best LASIK Surgeons in smaller cities. These areas often do not have major universities with ophthalmology departments, so the LASIK surgeon does not have an opportunity to secure a faculty appointment. FDA studies for approval of lasers and other refractive surgery devices are typically conducted by a very small number of surgeons. Although many of the surgeons listed in the Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory have conducted FDA studies, many well-qualified surgeons have not had this opportunity. A LASIK Surgeon meeting 8 of the above qualifications will typically be more qualified than most other LASIK doctors in that surgeon's local area.
The refractive surgeons listed in the Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory are among the true pioneers of LASIK and refractive surgery since many of them participated in the first FDA studies leading to the approval of the excimer laser for laser vision correction. These surgeons are inventors, software developers and they train other LASIK Surgeons in the use of new equipment. Nearly all LASIK surgeons currently listed in the Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory are leading experts in vision correction procedures, not just LASIK, and are the most respected authorities in their field as rated by their peers.
Trusted LASIK Surgeons invites surgeons who meet the standards for inclusion in the directory to apply. Already over 35 of the most qualified LASIK surgeons in the world have committed to the Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory service. All of them have the reputations and qualifications that put them in the top 1 percent of all LASIK Surgeons in the United States.
The Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory currently lists surgeons in the following cities: Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Dallas, Fayetteville (AR), Greensboro, Houston, Kansas City, Louisville, Miami, Mobile, New Orleans, New York City, Omaha Philadelphia, Long Beach, Los Angeles (from the South Bay to the San Fernando valley to the San Gabriel valley), Louisville, Orange County (including Irvine, Newport Beach, and Orange), Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Sioux Falls and will add surgeons in new cities on a regular basis.
"We began this service as a way to help consumers find the best LASIK Surgeons in their local area. In less than one month since launching a beta version of the Trusted LASIK Surgeons website we have coverage in many of the major cities in the United States," stated James J. Salz, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Trusted LASIK Surgeons. "We are thrilled that so many of the top LASIK Surgeons in the world have committed to our concept at such an early time. Clearly, the time has come for a LASIK directory service that can give the average consumer confidence in finding the most qualified LASIK Surgeons in their local area for their vision correction procedures."
