The LASIK surgeons profiled at Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ are among the best LASIK surgeons you can find because they have proven expertise when you compare them to other LASIK surgeons.
We estimate that many, if not most of the profiled eye surgeons featured Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ would place among top 1% of LASIK and vision correction surgeons in the United States based upon their professional credentials and accomplishments that have been recognized by their fellow ophthalmologists.
Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ is committed to listing only highly qualified LASIK and refractive surgeons.
While we typically list surgeons only, we also include some highly regarded university and private practice laser eye vision centers provided they have one or more eye surgeons who meet nearly all of the qualifications used in our screening process. We are very selective and the process takes some time
If we have not listed a expert surgeon in your area yet, you may want email the LASIK surgeon nearest to you and ask them for a referral. Because some of our listed and qualified eye surgeons have been instructors, have been or are currently professors, they may know a highly skilled and qualified LASIK surgeon that is closer to you.
As a public service, we have also included links to web pages of LASIK surgeons who we believe meet our criteria, but who may have not been fully screened yet or are in progress. Because Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ has not screened eye surgeons that may be listed in our directory , we make no representation as to their experience or qualifications and we advise you to do your own research.
We estimate that most LASIK, laser vision correction, refractive and cataract surgeons in our LASIK directory have professional qualifications that place them among the top 1% when compared to other refractive surgeons in the United States.
How do we make this estimate?
We believe that professional credentials and accomplishments of eye surgeons best demonstrate their qualifications because such standards are measured by and then compared among their peers. Our estimates are based on the following professional accomplishments: being the first to perform a refractive procedure in the United States or a particular city or state in the U.S., the number of FDA studies participated in as an investigator, faculty appointments at the department of ophthalmology of a medical school or teaching hospital, the number of professional lectures and publications authored (research articles, text book chapters, textbooks and lectures), professional honors and awards, editorial and reviewer positions, and other special accomplishments such as inventions and patents. For a full explanation of the criteria we use to screen surgeons to be profiled in our directory and why we believe our standards ensure that you find on the best LASIK surgeons who are true experts, please visit our Surgeons Qualifications and Screen Process page.
Of the other LASIK surgeons listed in the Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ Directory that we not estimate make the top 1% of LASIK and cataract surgeons using the criteria we use to screen surgeon, we believe most have professional credentials that we estimate 5% of all refractive surgeons in the United States would have and those LASIK surgeons who we do not think are among the top 5% would likely place among the top 10% based upon the criteria we use to screen surgeons..
In most of these instances, these refractive surgeons may not have a faculty appointment in an ophthalmology department at a university (since they may live in a smaller city), have not conducted a major FDA study as an investigator, or have not lectured and published extensively.
These LASIK and cataract surgeons are still highly accomplished since they will have made contributions to the field of refractive surgery through their research and other criteria used by Trusted LASIK Surgeons™ to qualify them for inclusion in our directory.
Consequently, these LASIK Surgeons have professional credentials that set them above the vast majority of other LASIK surgeons in the United States.
