Cataract Surgeon in Hawaii Selected to Premier Surgeon’s Top 250

Screen-Shot-2012-06-12-at-8.41.21-AM-300x210Honolulu, HI — Dr. Alan Faulkner, a LASIK and cataract surgeon in Hawaii, has been listed as one of the Top 250 surgeons in the country by Premier Surgeon. Compiling a list of the top innovators and experts in the field of cataract surgery, Premier Surgeon chose Dr. Faulkner based on his dedication to patient care and results. Dr. Faulkner says he is excited and honored to be a part of the distinguished community of surgeons and hopes to continue demonstrating his commitment to providing the highest quality treatments for patients at his Hawaii eye care practice.

Premier Surgeon is a publication designed to serve as a definitive information source for cataract and refractive surgeons, delivering clinical perspective and relevance through content-based articles. Combining staff-written articles with materials provided by physicians and experts, the database focuses on all aspects of the ophthalmology practice and how to improve each surgeon’s experience, publishing articles based on facts and expert opinion, not on the basis of advertising support. The Premier Surgeon’s Top 250 are chosen by a team of publishers and editors as the leading minds in the field of laser refractive cataract surgery. Dr. Faulkner says the list recognizes an elite group of surgeons and practitioners who have devoted countless hours to pursuing the best care possible.

At his practice in Honolulu, Aloha Laser Vision, Dr. Faulkner provides a wide variety of vision correction services ranging from implantable contact lenses and cataract surgery to LASIK and refractive lens exchange procedures. Aloha Laser Vision recently introduced the latest development in laser refractive cataract surgery, the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser. Also offering a number of other treatments for patient concerns such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, aging eyes, and presbyopia, he says his goal as a surgeon has always been to treat each patient with the personalized, compassionate care they deserve and to dedicate every effort to helping them enjoy the wonders of life with clear vision.

“One of the most influential factors in selection for the Top 250 Surgeons list is contributing to the education of one’s peers. I have been able to dedicate much of my time and experience to teaching other cataract surgeons through lectures, presentations, and training workshops, and am grateful to be a part of the future of vision correction procedures,” he says.

Looking forward, Dr. Faulkner says he is grateful to be included in the Premier Surgeon listing because it offers him a chance to reach more patients and offer them the opportunity to see life more clearly. He says he believes the recognition will serve to inspire and motivate his future efforts as he continues to seek the most up-to-date procedures and the most effective results for his patients.

“Being selected for the Premier Surgeon is a great honor. It is a recognition of my commitment to providing patients with the best techniques in cataract surgery, as well as an inspiration to continue pursuing that goal,” says Dr. Faulkner.
