The certification is a means of identifying ophthalmic surgeons who maintain a high level of surgical excellence as measured by their peers.

To gain board certification, an ophthalmologist must submit a detailed record of 50 cataract/implant procedures. The Board of Eye Surgery arranges for a surgery evaluation via videotape. An onsite observer monitored and evaluated three surgical procedures by Barber, and a panel of surgical examiners then evaluated the tapes.
