My name is Frans Rehl. I used to work in an ophthalmology practice located on the East Coast of the United States. My duties as Office Manager were focused pretty much on every aspect that concern the best interest of the business. We start performing LASIK procedures, two years after I stated in this position. Back then, we were the first ophthalmology practice in the United Sates with the first Excimer Laser (NIDEK EC-5000 CX III), approved by the FDA in the United States.
My training for LASIK procedures was pursuing in parallel with doctor's training at the time, but obviously in different areas. You see I was trained in different aspects of this industry to attend, support and complement surgical procedures if needed. Well it turns out that I was so good at it, that all of a sudden I was assisting medical procedure.
Since then, I have met and interact with many people who work in a regular basis in this industry; doctors, medical assistants, technicians, engineers, consultants among many others. Anyways, it has been an incredible experience for me, so I decided share my experiences through this website. I hope you like it...

If you are wondering why we are doing this? You would be surprised if we tell you that our research discovered many LASIK resource websites are trying to educate consumers, while others are focusing on frightening consumers, creating confusion and fear. This controversy is due to a significant increase in complaints to the FDA in the last few years. In addition there are so many individual bloggers who provide wrong information to the audience. What are we doing about it? We are committed to guide others and provide additional information on the web by implementing new methods to learn about LASIK & Laser eye surgery, dividing myth from reality in the information that is distributed on the internet.
