Improve Your Vision. Improve Your Life.

Of all the amazing components of the 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 the freedom, the possibilities, the simple joys of a life with crisp, clear vision from the moment you awaken.

Are you ready to trade in your glasses & contact Lenses?

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.

LASIK could be your answer.

Where do I begin?

The first step towards freedom from contacts and glasses is to schedule a LASIK 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.

Are you 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 All-Laser LASIK - PRK, Implantable Contact Lenses or Refractive Lens Exchange may be excellent alternative solutions.


Your eyes are just as unique as your fingerprints, and the right correction procedure for them will be just as unique.

Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute offers customized solutions for improved vision at any stage of life. Because we perform the full spectrum of vision correction procedures, we are able to offer you vision correction options other than LASIK in Los Angeles at our office. If you're not a good candidate for a given procedure, we’ll tell you.

LASIK Surgery

LASIK (which stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is micro-surgery, performed by a surgeon with a laser, which reshapes the cornea and thus changes the 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?

Laser Cataract Surgery

The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute is now offering a revolutionary technology—Laser Cataract Surgery—the most advanced, precise and gentle method of lens surgery. Laser Cataract Surgery uses the femtosecond laser to do many of the steps currently performed by hand. It is bladeless, all computer controlled and programmed by expert Los Angeles Cataract Surgeons. Cataracts, clouding of the natural lens of the eye, are the leading cause of vision loss in adults age 55 and older, and the leading cause of blindness worldwide, according to the National Institutes of Health.

During non-laser cataract surgery, the patient’s natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens implant using traditional surgical implements and blades. Laser Cataract Surgery allows Dr. Maloney and Dr. Shamie to perform the cataract surgery without blades of any kind. 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.

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 an ideal candidates for laser vision correction. Dr. Maloney and Dr. Shamie, pioneers in the latest eye surgery techniques, are experts in ICL surgery, Dr. Maloney having performed the procedure since 1997, including the original FDA trials. It's a tiny, biocompatible contact lens permanently 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 find it, and then only if he knows where to look. 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.

Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL)

An advanced treatment to resolve vision problems associated with Keratoconus, Collagen Cross-Linking is an minimally-invasive treatment that stabilizes the cornea to inhibit the progression of vision loss.

Dmek & DSEK

A partial corneal transplant procedure, DMEK is a procedure to remove some of the corneal structure, replacing it with donor tissue. DSEK replaced the damages layer of cells, rather than the entire cornea for faster healing and improved results in vision restoration.


DALK is a corneal transplant procedure that replaces the stroma of the eye (fibers interlaced within the eye structure), while leaving much of the natural eye structure intact.

Fuchs Dystrophy

Fuchs dystrophy typically develops in patients in the 50s or 60s, most often affecting both eyes. This condition leads to a gradual worsening of vision. The condition is when the cornea begins to swell, with symptoms such as cloudy vision, glare, blurred vision, and eye pain. Treating the condition involves replacing the damaged area of the cornea with one of the advanced corneal transplant surgery techniques we offer at Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute.
