Background and Purpose
Laser vision correction the predominant refractive procedure has sadly been trivialised and commoditised. This is a result of many issues, specifically mass advertising, often bordering on being misleading, price wars and poor models of care. In 2004 an all party parliamentary committee was established to improve the safety of laser eye surgery and there was an attempt to pass a bill through parliament. Ultimately the Royal College of Ophthalmologists were tasked to provide a set of standards for Laser refractive surgery which has been published http://www.rcophth.ac.uk/page.asp?section=368§iontitle=. The broad principles are good, however refractive surgery is changing rapidly with newer procedures
The proponents of this forum believe leadership of refractive surgery remains the responsibility of ophthalmic surgeons. While fully acknowledging refractive surgery is big business and the involvement of non-ophthalmologists is inevitable. Taking responsibility and leadership, this website/portal has been created for the beneÿt of refractive surgery clinics and surgeons who are uncompromising in the care of patients and have similar intentions of ensuring patients treated in the UK are delivered the best care possible.
This website has been created with the following intentions:
The site is sponsored by the ophthalmic industry (manufacturers of lasers and vision correction products) who have similar values.
Clinics and Surgeons must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the administrators of this site that they fulÿl criteria that broadly follow the Standards of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. In addition to the standards, this organization also advocates good ethical advertising and marketing practice.
Laservisionforum.com is a private organization that upholds the highest standards. Laservisionforum.com also reserves the right to select and de-select any Clinic.
