How to Find a Skilled Cataract Surgeon
Cataracts are a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. The surgery involves removal of the cloudy natural lens and replacement with a clear artificial lens, called an intraocular lens. Elmquist Eye Group now offers Bladeless Laser-Assisted cataract surgery, which improves the precision, safety and accuracy of cataract surgery.
To achieve the very best results from your cataract surgery, it is important to choose a competent, experienced surgeon who is fully certified in his or her field. Here are several recommendations that may help you make an informed decision:
- Always ask your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to recommend qualified eye surgeons with whom they’ve had good experiences. And don’t forget about your family doctor or primary care physician who can probably refer you to a cataract surgeon they know and like. Recommendations from people you know and trust are more valuable than reviews and ratings you find on the Internet.
- The America’s Top Doctors directory is another excellent resource. Each year, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. identifies the nation’s best doctors by medical specialty. Doctors are nominated by their peers and researched by a team of physicians who evaluate their training, experience, and history of disciplinary actions. These doctors represent the top 1% of doctors in the nation, and doctors cannot pay to be listed. Trevor Elmquist, DO, has been selected as one of America’s Top Doctors in Ophthalmology for four years in a row.
- Verify that the eye surgeon you are considering is board certified and has the skills and expertise to provide comprehensive eye care services, including complex and delicate eye surgery. A physician can claim to be board certified, but you should confirm it by visiting the Certification Matters The site provides up-to-date information on physicians who have met the certification requirements of one of the 24 individual specialty boards managed by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Dr. Trevor Elmquist is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
- Another helpful resource is Angie’s List. This respected online consumer review site does not permit anonymous reviews, and accuracy is mandatory. Elmquist Eye Group has maintained an “A” rating with Angie’s List since 2008 and earned their coveted Super Service Award for the last two years. We are one of only a small number of Southwest Florida ophthalmology and optometry companies to perform well enough to earn this Award.
