There is absolutely no way using the services of
a doctor evaluated by Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance
(USAEyes) is a guarantee of the outcome you want. Past performance
is no guarantee of future results. Even patients of USAEyes
Certified Lasik Surgeons can have poor results. Every doctor has
unexpected outcomes, even the best. USAEyes
requirements to achieve certification allow for the variable
outcomes associated with surgery.
What you can reasonably infer is that a USAEyes certified
Lasik doctor is willing to have his or her surgical outcomes scrutinized
by an independent consumer/patient advocacy organization.
