Trusted LASIK Surgeons estimates that Dr. Majmudar's professional credentials place him among the top 1% of LASIK and refractive surgeons in the United States.
What separates Dr. Majmudar from most other LASIK and refractive surgeons in the United States are his expertise and teaching. He was selected to the Editorial Advisory Board by Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today in April 2003 and later recognized as one of the "Top Fifty Opinion Leaders, 2005". Dr. Majmudar currently has a faculty appointment at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago as an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, where he has also served as a co-director of the corneal fellowship program.

Demonstrating his expertise among his peers, he is a reviewer of scientific articles on ophthalmology for 10 journals. He has been named an "Honored Member" in Strathmore's "Who's Who, 2000-2001 Millennium Edition".
Dr. Majmudar is active in professional organizations. He has received an Achievement Award as a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology where he serves as a member of the Annual Program Committee for refractive surgery. A current member of the International Society of Refractive Surgery, he serves on the International Council as the USA representative and later was appointed to its steering committee.

Parag A. Majmudar, M.D., has provided LASIK and other vision correction procedures to over 10,000 patients. People seeking treatment of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (blurred vision), and presbyopia (reading difficulties) seek his expert care. At Chicago Cornea Consultants, the private practice of Dr. Majmudar, patients have a full range of options beyond laser vision surgery procedures like LASIK and PRK, including RLE/CLE (lens implants), Conductive Keratoplasty (CK), phakic implants, limbal relaxing incisions, and cataract lens implants procedures. His practice at Chicago Cornea Consultants provides uses the top-of-the-line equipment in order to provide premier patient care, using the IntraLase system for "All-Laser" or "Bladeless" LASIK, Wavefront Based ("Custom") LASIK and PRK, and the iLASIK procedure, which includes WaveScan Technology, IntraLase, and Visx Advanced CustomVue treatments. Dr. Majmudar regularly treated new patients who come to him with complications from a surgery performed by another refractive surgery. Other eye doctors often trust him to perform LASIK or another refractive surgery procedure.
"Dr. Majmudar has impressive credentials which have earned him international recognition from his peers. I believe his most important contribution to refractive surgery has been his pioneering work in the application of mitomycin C in PRK patients who are at increased risk to develop corneal haze. These include previous radial keratotomy patients, corneal transplant patients, and highly myopic patients where LASIK is contraindicated. The use of mitomycin C in thousands of these patients worldwide has dramatically improved their chances of getting an excellent outcome in their vision correction procedure," stated James J. Salz, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Trusted LASIK Surgeons. "We are honored to have Dr. Majmudar join the Trusted Lasik Surgeons directory."
"The honor and privilege of being selected to Trusted Lasik Surgeons is truly an accomplishment of which I am proud," said Parag A. Majmudar, M.D., of Chicago Cornea Consultants. Today, patients have more choices than ever when selecting a LASIK surgeon, and frankly, that can be overwhelming. One of the conclusions of the recent FDA hearings about the safety of LASIK was that complications may be minimized by finding a reputable LASIK surgeon. The directory of Trusted LASIK Surgeons will certainly provide an added value to patients as the legwork has already been done through its rigorous selection criteria."
