North Andover, Mass. (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Medical Management Services Group, L.L.C. is pleased to announce that its Cataract Surgery & Lens Implant patient information and education website http://www.aboutcataractsurgery.com has received accreditation by the Health On the Net (HON) Foundation for 2009. "Accreditation by the HON Foundation means that aboutcataractsurgery.com is in full compliance with the HON principles (http://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html) which serves as the basis for its initiative to improve and maintain the quality and integrity of health and medical information on the World Wide Web", said Katherine Carlisle, a Managing Partner of Medical Management Services Group, L.L.C.
Aboutcataractsurgery.com is structured to provide eye care consumers with useful and reliable information about how cataracts affect vision, symptoms of cataracts, cataracts and astigmatism, cataracts, near vision & presbyopia, the cataract surgery procedure, recovery from cataract surgery and complications of cataract surgery. In addition, the site contains detailed information regarding the different types of lens implants that can be used to correct vision after cataract surgery such as aspheric lens implants, astigmatism correcting toric lens implants and near vision presbyopia correcting lens implants.
"As a first step in deciding to have cataract surgery, patients should seek current information about the various procedures to be certain that they understand the available options. The final decision should be made between an informed patient and their cataract surgeon. The choice of a cataract surgeon is the most important decision they can make. Thus we have included a "Find a Cataract Surgeon" feature to assist users of the site," said Ms. Carlisle.
In order to provide eye care consumers with the most unbiased information, unlike many websites offering information about cataracts, cataract surgery, cataract surgeons or lens implant surgery, http://www.aboutcataractsurgery.com does not accept funding, support or advertising from pharmaceutical, medical device, laser or lens implant companies.
