Improve Your Vision. Improve Your Life.

Of all the amazing components of human anatomy, the eyes may be the most marvelous. They are your primary tools of awareness. The ability to see allows you independence, mobility, and appreciation of visual beauty and form.

You’re here now because you probably don’t see as well as you’d like to. And perhaps you are tired of the limitations of glasses and daily burden of contact lenses. Vision correction surgery at Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute can offer you freedom, possibilities, and the simple joys of life with crisp, clear vision from the moment you awaken.

Restoring Your Vision Corrective Procedures

We simply can't live our lives to the fullest if we're not able to see what lies ahead. Whether you've noticed a decline in your vision or have found that you've been born with eyesight that needs adjustment, we offer a number of advanced corrective procedures that can restore your eyesight and help you to see clearly once more.

LASIK Perfectionists

LASIK (which stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is laser micro-surgery performed by a surgeon to reshape the cornea and thus change a patient’s vision. Correctly performed, LASIK eye surgery can correct the most common forms of vision impairment—myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness) and astigmatism. During LASIK surgery, a thin layer of tissue is folded back from the surface of the cornea. After the laser reshapes the cornea, the tissue is folded back into place, where it bonds quickly.

At the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute, the entire LASIK procedure is performed using state-of-the-art surgical lasers, so there are no scalpels, stitches or needles. The time in surgery is 3 to 5 minutes per eye. Healing for most patients is so fast that vision improves within hours of the procedure, and many patients return to work the next day. If you are considering LASIK eye surgery, don't you owe it to yourself to receive the best LASIK Los Angeles has to offer?

LASIK Could Be Your Answer

Where Do I Begin?

Where Do I Begin?

The first step towards freedom from contacts and glasses is to schedule a Consultation & Comprehensive Examination with our team. At your consultation, we’ll evaluate your vision, and you’ll learn about which procedures may be the best options for you based on your degree of myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism. You’ll also meet one of our surgeons. At the completion of the consult, we will move right into the next step at that time, which is the Comprehensive Examination.

News media

Am I a Candidate?

Am I a Candidate?

Determining if you are a good candidate for LASIK depends on several advanced diagnostic tests and a careful evaluation of the health of your eyes performed during your Comprehensive Exam. Once our team knows if you are a good candidate for surgery, our surgeons will make their recommendation for treatment at the Los Angeles offices of Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute. For patients that aren’t optimal candidates for LASIK - PRK, Implantable Contact Lenses or Refractive Lens Exchange may be excellent alternative solutions.

But What If It's Not?

But What If It's Not?

LASIK is the most widely known vision correction procedure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you, and that’s OK. We know it can initially be disappointing, but there can be many reasons why we may not recommend LASIK after your Comprehensive Exam. We are very careful about who we recommend for surgery. You may require additional treatment to get your eyes in the optimal state for surgery, or alternatively, there may be a better option you might be unfamiliar with, such as EVO Visian ICL, PRK, or Refractive Lens Exchange, which can help you achieve visual freedom.

Learn About Other Options

Distance Correction EVO Visian ICL

The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is an excellent option for many patients with moderate to severe nearsightedness who are either seeking an alternative to LASIK or may not be ideal candidates for laser vision correction. It's a tiny, biocompatible contact lens placed behind the iris that provides excellent quality of vision. The surgery takes about 7 ½ minutes, and when it is done you will see clearly, without the need for glasses or contacts.

You won't see or feel the ICL once it is placed—in fact, only an eye doctor will be able to visualize it if they have experience with ICLs. The doctors at the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute have years of expertise in performing this surgery and the procedure is particularly valuable to patients who have some astigmatism in addition to nearsightedness.

Cataract Procedure Laser Cataract Surgery

The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute’s new standard of care is Laser Cataract Surgery—the most advanced, precise and gentle method of lens surgery. Laser Cataract Surgery uses a femtosecond laser to do many of the steps traditionally performed by hand. It is bladeless, computer controlled and programmed by our expert Los Angeles Cataract Surgeons.

During non-laser cataract surgery, the natural lens of the patient’s eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens implant using traditional surgical instruments and blades. The doctors at the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute are pioneers in the field of eye surgery and are widely recognized as providing the best cataract surgery Los Angeles has to offer.

Cataract Procedures Advanced Lenses

Advanced lens implants provide a wider range of clear vision without glasses than standard lens implants. They significantly reduce your dependency on glasses for most activities, such as computer work, watching TV, and driving. Clear vision for many activities, both up close and far away, can be achieved with these lenses. There are four main types of advanced lens implants:
