Newsom Eye Safety Standards

Your safety is our top concern at Newsom Eye. We believe that the safer we make your LASIK procedure the easier it is to choose Newsom Eye.We have set high standards to guide us through the LASIK procedure. Unlike other LASIK centers, we apply the same safety standards to a Newsom Eye LASIK procedure that we apply to cataract surgery, lens replacement surgery, retina surgery or any other intraocular surgery. The Newsom Eye Safety Standards start with our policy to only perform our LASIK procedures in our AWARD WINNING surgical center which is certified by the state of Florida and fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, (AAAHC). The AAAHC is the highest source of accreditation in our field. It is a private, non-profit organization that compares the quality of a healthcare organization’s services and the sterility of its facility to national standards. Doctors’ offices and clinics are not subject to the same standards of sterility and safety as AAAHC accredited facilities. In fact many LASIK centers do not have any oversight or accreditation for their surgical facility. Utilizing and maintaining this facility for the purposes of your LASIK procedure is costly, but when it comes to the safety of your surgery, Newsom Eye will never cut corners. We encourage you to compare the Newsom Eye Safety Standards with the standards of any other LASIK provider.

Patient Testimonials: In Their Own Words

Jennifer Miller, MD, LASIK Patient: “As a physician, I depend on seeing clearly every day to effectively perform my job. For years I have been afraid to trust anyone with the surgical correction of my eyes. When I learned about Dr. Newsom and his state of the art facility and latest technology, I knew at last I had found someone I could entrust with my vision. The entire experience was positive – from the pre-operative exam, the day of procedure, and the post-operative follow up. By the next day, I was restored to perfect vision and felt great. I put my confidence in the best and I am glad I did. Thank you Dr. Newsom.” Sherri Alvarez, LASIK Patient:“I had had a severe astigmatism in my right eye since I was a child. I had been to many optometrists over the years who told me that it could not be corrected. Luckily, one day I saw the Newsom Eye billboard mentioning my condition and I called immediately for an appointment. From the moment I got off the elevator the staff and doctors were wonderful to me. I really got to see all of them shine on surgery day. Everyone’s compassion and humor was comforting, and the surgery was painless and quick. My LASIK surgery went perfectly…I went from 20/150 to 20/25! My astigmatism is gone! Everyone who has been working with me at Newsom Eye came out to congratulate me on my results…including Dr. Newsom! I absolutely recommend Newsom Eye to everyone who needs their vision corrected. Don’t put it off another minute, call today! Not only will you be able to see again, but the entire crew at Newsom Eye will treat you like a queen or king! ”
