It's my first time to hear about this Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis or LASIK. With a little more browsing, I learned that it is a type of refractive laser eye surgery performed by ophthalmologists for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It is a procedure that changes the shape of the cornea (clear front) to reduce the need for glasses or contacts. Lasik (others call it Lasic, Lasec, or Lasix) may correct nearsighted or farsighted vision, astigmatism, or reduce the need for reading glasses.

It is the most often performed surgery in the US, with more than 11 million Lasik procedures performed to-date -- even the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) has approved All-Laser Lasik technologies for use on U.S. astronauts.

Selection of your Lasik doctor is important. USAEyes, operated by the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance, provides objective Lasik information and lists Lasik doctors who meet specific patient outcome requirements and are certified by the nonprofit, nongovernmental, Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance.

Just recently, www.USAEyes.org website has met the Health On the Net Foundation (HON) accreditation requirements:
The www.USAEyes.org website of the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance has been accredited by the Health On the Net Foundation (HON). HON is the leading organization promoting and guiding the deployment of useful and reliable online medical and health information, and its appropriate and efficient use. Created in 1995, HON is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Geneva and accredited to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
In addition to that, www.USAEyes.org was also 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 has been cited as a refractive surgery patient advocacy by the New York Times, US News & World Report, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, CNN, NPR, CBS News, Oprah, Ocular Surgery News, Ophthalmology Management, and others.

For Lasik surgery, visit USAEyes.
