How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings of area eyewear outlets reveal sizeable differences in customer satisfaction. We'll point you toward businesses that provide excellent service and low prices.

Ads from LASIK surgery outfits promise that the procedure is “a permanent solution for vision correction.” “Make corrective eyewear a thing of the past.” And “over 98 percent of patients are totally satisfied.” Unfortunately, those claims stretch the truth.

LASIK won’t help some types of vision problems, and it’s inappropriate for some people.

Find out how much experience prospective surgeons have. Experience is very important. Meet with surgeons and ask about their success rates with patients with conditions like yours.

Take charge by selecting the best doctors and other providers and making decisions about your medical care. Here's how.

The most important thing you can do to assure yourself high-quality medical care is to form a strong relationship with a good primary care physician and, at times, together make informed decisions on specialty care.

We advise consumers to select physicians who are “board certified,” and we report on board certification status in our ratings tables. We describe here what board certification means and why it is important.
