Find out why over 100 eye doctors have come to maloney-shamie vision institute for vision correction surgery

The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute was established in Los Angeles in 1998 by Dr. Robert Maloney, the first surgeon in western North America to perform LASIK surgery as part of the original FDA clinical trials. A clinical professor of ophthalmology at UCLA, Doctor Maloney has trained more than 1,000 surgeons in the use of the excimer laser and has personally performed more than 65,000 vision correction surgeries.

Since its inception, the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute has been a center for innovation and research in vision correction surgery. Its status as an FDA-authorized Study Center means that MSVI surgeons examine, test and evaluate all of the latest technologies available for vision correction, so that when new advances are approved by the FDA, Dr. Maloney is already experienced in their use.

  • The VISX S4 flying-spot, eye-tracking laser, equipped with Iris-Registration, which provides an exceptional level of accuracy in correcting your vision;
  • The Intralase FS laser, which Dr. Maloney, Dr. Shamie, or Dr. Hura use to create pulses of laser light to create a corneal flap, which is then lifted so that LASIK correction surgery can proceed. The IntraLase Method ensures blade-free LASIK surgeries, which are more comfortable, more precise, and faster healing;
  • The LenSx Femtosecond laser, which Dr. Shamie and Dr. Hura use to make cataract removal surgery completely bladeless, all computer-controlled and programmed by Dr. Shamie and Dr. Hura.

We include Wavefront Technology as part of your LASIK treatment. The Wavefront software allows us to correct minor imperfections unique to your vision, offering many patients better than 20/20 vision, so-called 'super vision.'
