Lasik Patient Advocacy Website Exceeds 3 Million

Lasik patient advocacy USAEyes passes website visitor milestone.



SACRAMENTO July 1, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- The USAEyes website of the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance recently welcomed its 3 millionth visitor. "A noncommercial website achieving this level of success shows the high demand for detailed and objective information about Lasik and other laser eye surgery techniques," says Glenn Hagele, founder and Executive Director of the nonprofit organization that operates the popular website.

Lasik uses a specialized laser to reshape the clear front of the eye and reduce the need for glasses and contacts. Lasik is the world's most popular elective surgery, exceeding 1.2 million procedures each year and rising. A recent survey of members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery indicates a 25% increase in surgical volume of over the previous year.

"It is clear the strength of USAEyes is that we talk about the good and the bad and we are not selling anything," adds Hagele. "Everyone considering Lasik or similar refractive surgery needs to know the probability of success and how to find a quality doctor."

Listed at USAEyes are US ophthalmologists who participate in the patient advocacy organization's ongoing evaluation and certification program and its popular "50 Tough Questions For Your Lasik Doctor" has been used by hundreds of thousands to evaluate potential Lasik doctors.

"Surgeon selection is the most critical step for any Lasik patient. The doctor is even more important than the laser because no amount of technology will compensate for an inferior doctor," warns Hagele. "That is why USAEyes focuses strongly on helping patients find the best available doctor through patient education and doctor certification."

USAEyes is operated by the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance, a nonprofit nongovernmental patient advocacy organization, which provides the public detailed refractive surgery information and certifies refractive surgeons.
