Certified Surgeons

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 desired outcome. 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.
