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?
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.
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:
Searching for your glasses on your nightstand, losing a contact while exercising, dry eyes after a long day of wearing contacts: does this all sound familiar? For many it does. LASIK and other vision correction procedures have allowed tens of millions of people around the world to have excellent vision while eliminating or reducing their dependence on glasses or contacts.
