Congressional Report Recommends USAEyes

Patient advocacy website USAEyes named "reliable Web source of information about LASIK".

US House Ways and Means

USAEyes Lasik patient advocacy recommend as reliable information source in US Congressional committee report.

WASHINGTON DC, July 18 - The website of the nonprofit Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance ( was named a "reliable Web source of information about LASIK", in testimony presented to the Subcommittee on Health of the US Congressional House Committee on Ways and Means.  USAEyes is a nonprofit nongovernmental organization that provides patient information and certifies Lasik patient outcomes.

Ha T. Tu, Senior Health Researcher, Center for Studying Health System Change cited the USAEyes website as one of four Internet sources of Lasik information specifically named. Dr. Tu included the websites of the Federal Trade Commission, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and USAEyes in the report. USAEyes is the only patient advocacy cited.

The primary purpose of the testimony was to make Congressional leaders aware of consumers’ experiences with markets for self-pay services, such as Lasik.

The report states consumer-oriented approaches to health care sometimes focus on price shopping without giving adequate priority to comparing quality across providers. USAEyes makes available a list of doctors certified by the patient advocacy and a list of 50 Tough Questions For Your Lasik Doctor.

Despite consumer emphasis on price, widespread reliance on word-of-mouth recommendation in self-pay markets suggests that many consumers place a high priority on quality but may be using referrals from physicians or previous patients as a proxy for quality, given the absence of or shortcomings in concrete quality measures.
