Laguna Hills, CA – Dr. John A. Hovanesian has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2021. Newsweek and Statista Inc. announced this prestigious award list on July 21st, 2021 and it can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2021 recognizes 150 of the best ophthalmologists in the U.S. Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global data research firm, to look at the 20 most populous states in the U.S. to find the best eye doctors in the country. They invited approximately 10,000 medical experts to participate in an online survey where they recommend ophthalmologists throughout the U.S. The evaluation process was comprised of two steps:

  • Recommendations from peers: an independent national survey, which resulted in more than 4,000 recommendations from doctors, ophthalmologists, optometrists, managers, and health care professionals with knowledge of ophthalmology. Participants were asked to recommend the best ophthalmologists in their state and for all of the U.S. Participants could also recommend doctors from the other specialty (ophthalmologists for optometrists and vice versa). These recommendations were weighted lower than recommendations from the same specialization.
  • Quality Score: Additionally, participants were asked to rank the quality dimensions, which influence the quality of Eye Doctors. Participants were asked to differentiate between these variables:
    • Quality of technical equipment (e.g. use of the most recent equipment)
    • Continuity of care (e.g. degree to which consistent and constant care is provided including preventive care and follow-up care)
    • Quality of care (e.g. treatments, consultation with a doctor)

Dr. Hovanesian is a leader in the fields of cataract, corneal, refractive, and laser surgery, an international lecturer, and the author of two eye surgery textbooks. He is also a recipient of the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Senior Achievement Award, Orange County Top Doctors 2021, and has been named a Distinguished Eagle Scout by the Boy Scouts of America for internationally recognized contributions to his professional field.

We are proud to congratulate Dr. Hovanesian for being named one of the top 35 ophthalmologists on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2021.
