Steve Siepser, M.D. Joins Distinguished Group of 250 Eye Docs Nationwide
WAYNE, Pa., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven Siepser and his team at Siepser Laser Eyecare have been named to Premier Surgeon magazine's top 250 (PS250) as leading innovators in the field of premium IOL implant surgery.
Dr. Siepser is one of only 14 ophthalmologists chosen by the magazine in Pennsylvania.
An IOL or intraocular lens is a premium implant that replaces a patient's natural lens that has lost clarity due to a cataract. Unlike standard cataract replacement lenses, an IOL lens can correct cataracts and gives patients back their full range of vision. This allows patients to see at distance, intermediate and near, 90 percent of the time, which improves their performance after cataract surgery when compared to more traditional implants.
"The PS250 is a list that the editors developed to help frame the premium IOL movement," said Joan-Marie Stiglich, senior vice president of Slack Inc., the magazine's publisher.
"While I'm flattered by the award, I would never have made this prestigious list if I had not surrounded myself with the finest medical and business team anywhere," Siepser said. "Winning this honor is wonderful. Now we will focus on maintaining the standards which account for this tribute."
The editors' criteria for the award include doctors who:
- educated colleagues about premium IOLs at ophthalmic meetings.
- conducted research to get the best possible results for patients.
- used diagnostic technology in matching the best lens for patients.
- examined ways to improve the business of IOL practices.
- became early adoptees of IOL technology.
There are more than 18,000 ophthalmologists and 7,000 ophthalmology practices in the United States.
Because of Dr. Siepser's early adoption and promotion of the IOL technology, Premier Surgeon magazine is highlighting his practice as a feature story in an issue later this year. They are conducting interviews at his practice, Monday, May 17.
Slack Inc. publishes Ocular Surgery News, Premier Surgeon and other medical publications.
Dr. Siepser is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and holds a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology. He holds six patents, five of which help improve patients' vision.
Dr. Siepser has offices in Wayne and Plymouth Meeting, Pa.
