What training is necessary for coverage of LASIK?

Physicians must be appropriately trained in LASIK as well as be certified on the laser that they will use. Many laser manufacturers offer a single, “combined certification” course that certifies physicians on both the laser and on the microkeratome. To confirm whether the course(s) you have or plan to attend is a combined certification course, please contact the laser manufacturer. If the course provides only LASIK certification, a separate laser certification (PRK) course is required.
