Our Mission

We understand what it feels like to be tired after a lifetime of wearing glasses and contact lenses. That is why we specialize in providing patients with improved eyesight, so they no longer need to rely on these cumbersome aids. Every eligible staff member at the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute has undergone corrective surgery to see better, meaning that our promise of transformative results is woven into the very fabric of our practice. We've known the joyful freedom from glasses and contacts, and we want our patients to experience the same enhanced quality of life and peace of mind.

The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute

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.

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 many of the latest technologies available for vision correction, so that when new advances are approved by the FDA, our surgeons are already experienced in their use.

The VISX S4 flying-spot

The VISX S4 flying-spot, eye-tracking laser, equipped with Iris-Registration, which provides an exceptional level of accuracy and safety in correcting your vision;

The LenSx Femtosecond laser

The LenSx Femtosecond laser, which Dr. Shamie and Dr. Hura use to make cataract removal surgery 100% bladeless, all computer-controlled and programmed for accuracy and reproducible results.

The Intralase FS laser

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.

We include iDesign 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.'

In addition, we track and analyze our laser surgical outcomes, allowing us to develop a special nomogram—a complex formula that we use to make energy adjustments to the laser for your treatment allowing for a precise level of customization.

Wavefront technology allows our surgeons to examine and correct your vision with 25 times more accuracy than standard vision correction technology used to measure you for glasses or contact lenses.

Personalized Vision Correction

When it comes to your eyes, one size does not fit all. Your eyes are just as unique as your fingerprints, and the exact correction that you need, will be different from the correction needed by anyone else.  

At Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute, we have every resource available to diagnose, plan and treat your eyes, so that you can have your best possible personal vision.

We can offer you the exact treatment that you need, not just the treatment that is easiest for us to give you. Because they are leading researchers in the field, the doctors at The Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute are able to offer you vision correction options other than LASIK, and will personalize your vision care with the technique that is best suited for your eyes. If you're not a good candidate for a given procedure, they will tell you.
