"Just finished my left eye ICL surgery with @maloneyvision 👁 This eye was a little more painful than the right eye but doing good. Broke a blood vessel and got a scratch but should be good in a few days. ☺️Grateful to be free from clunky coke bottle glasses and contacts after 37 years. 🙏 Thank you GOD."

"My ability to see at a distance and the clarity of my vision is something that I had never before experienced. I have suffered from bad eyesight since I was 8 years old, and have been utilizing some combination of glasses or contacts since that time. However, in recent years my eyes had deteriorated more and more making it difficult to not only see at night but to enjoy seemingly simple tasks. I am extremely grateful that I was introduced to Dr. Maloney after my sister (and her entire office) got LASIK on her eyes from him. While I was not a candidate for standard LASIK, I did qualify for ICL, and this procedure has allowed me to (as corny as this sounds) live a much fuller life. My ability to see at a distance and the clarity of my vision is something that I had never before experienced. I recently returned from South Africa for the World Cup and a safari, and the ability to be hiking for 5 days in a Game Reserve without dealing with contacts and/or glasses, and with being able to see better than every person in my 8-person group was validation that I made the right decision."

"By far the best experience I’ve ever had! Dr. Money was amazing from in office to post surgical experience. I felt taken care of by not only Dr. Maloney but by all the staff members whether I was in office or at home. Everyone was able to answer my questions and easily to get in touch with in between all my appointments. I highly recommend Maloney-Shamie Institute for your procedure. ICL surgery has been completely life changing for me! I’m no longer a prisoner to my eyes!"

"I had a great experience with the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute. I was referred to them by my optometrist for a Lasik consultation. The office was very responsive and got in touch with me quickly after receiving initial info from my optometrist. I ended up not qualifying for Lasik and Dr. Maloney recommended the ICL procedure instead. They were all understanding when I needed time to think about it, and I at no point felt pressured to move forward. After about a month I decided I did want to move forward with the procedure, which required another visit to the office for more measurements. The follow-up was also easy to schedule. At that point, a scheduler got in contact with me to schedule the actual procedure. The next day post-op was scheduled at the same time as the procedure, and the same day post-op was scheduled a few days before the procedure, along with the exact time of the procedure itself. Everyone I talked to at every point always made sure to ask if I had any questions, which was helpful. If I had any questions that came up later, they were also easy to get in touch with. It was reassuring to have multiple post-ops, considering the ICL is a bit more involved than Lasik, and the office runs pretty efficiently so I was able to get in and get out pretty quickly. Overall I would recommend the Vision Institute to anyone who was considering Lasik or the ICL. "

"It is so hard to put into words how incredibly thankful I am to Dr. Shamie and the rest of the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute. I have had glasses since I was 3 years old and started to wear contacts when I was in the 6th grade. Never in my lifetime of needing visual aides to see did I think I would be glasses and contacts free. Not only did Dr. Shamie reassure me throughout my process that she had high hopes for my vision to be corrected (there can never be a guarantee) by the ICL surgery she was and is one of the most caring doctors and surgeon I have ever come across. She never made me feel rushed nor did I ever feel like she had better things to be doing. I could feel as she spoke to me that she wanted to correct my vision for me as much as or more than I wanted it corrected and her attention to detail is impeccable. Let’s just say my case was not easy and my poor vision and astigmatism was a hurdle that would have to be tackled. I can happily say I am now seeing 20/15 vision in both of my eyes. It is truly a miracle, but also reenforces the fact that Dr. Shamie is a master of her craft. Throughout my appointments leading up to my procedure and all my appointments after I was treated so well by the staff at Maloney - Shamie Vision Institute. The dedication to their patients is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and there was always someone to call if needed 24/7. I even received a follow-up phone call to make sure I was doing well after calling with a concern after my first eye procedure. Everyone was very professional but also caring and friendly. I would and do recommend Dr. Shamie and the rest of the staff at Maloney - Shamie Vision Institute."

"I went to Dr. Shamie to have ICL (implantable contact lens) surgery and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! I was extremely nearsighted so LASIK wasn't an option for me. Dr. Shamie and the staff at MSVI made sure I knew everything about the procedure and what to expect afterwords. They do ICL one eye at a time to make sure everything fits and heals properly. Which turned out to be great, because I ended up having it done twice on one of my first eye because the lens was too big. Which allowed them to change the size of the lens for my second eye before having it done. Before switching the lens out Dr. Shamie had Dr. Maloney give a second opinion and they both agreed that it needed to be smaller. Dr. Shamie was able to get me in before her other surgeries to get it switched out right away. After the surgeries I was seeing 20/25 the next day! I'm now seeing 20/15 over a month out! It has been life changing not having to deal with contacts and glasses anymore! I would definitely recommend anyone looking to get ICL or LASIK, to go to MSVI! Dr. Shamie and the staff at Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute are wonderful!"


"Seeing 20/20 post-ICL eye surgery thanks to Dr. Shamie and her wonderful staff. I had been wearing contacts and glasses since I was 13 years old. I am now 30. I didn't qualify for LASIK due to my thin corneas. (Not surprised as I had consultations for eye surgery when I was 18 and 25 at different locations). I knew going into my consultation that I was going to be offered PRK and I was preparing myself to proceed with the procedure. After running my extensive eye exams Dr. Shamie suggested that I should consider the ICL eye surgery procedure to avoid thinning out my corneas since PRK also involves working with them. After reading their book, asking her and the team questions, and looking through ICL eye procedures on YouTube I decided to proceed with it. NO REGRETS. My eyes were fully recovered within 48 hours. Just waking up every morning got to Thank God, Dr. Shamie, and her team for this new vision. I am now living hassle-free from trying to find my glasses at night or thinking about refilling my contacts."

"Dr Maloney has an incredibly calming energy which made me sure that I was in excellent hands for my ICL surgery. He patiently answered all of my annoying questions and I couldn’t be happier with my results. All of the office staff, both administrative and technical, were knowledgeable, patient and warm. Especially Brenda. I highly recommend The Maloney Institute for ICL surgery."

Bryna F.

"Very grateful to Dr. Maloney and the team at MSVI. Able to see without glasses or contact lenses for the first time in my life and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of my ICL surgery. Everyone in the office and surgical center was friendly, professional and great at explaining every step in the process. Definitely a life changing decision!"

"THIS IS THE BEST MONEY YOU WILL EVER SPEND IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. I have not a single regret.I had an ICL procedure with Dr. Shamie and it truly changed my life. I still can't believe that I can just SEE now. Every single person who works in this office is so kind and helpful. I never had to wait more then 5 minutes for an appointment. You have to go in for a lot of checkups and after the first one the receptionists knew my name and would get me right in. All the doctors who work under Dr. Shamie are super knowledgable and professional. Jodi the scheduler is an actual angel of a person. The actual procedure was very smooth. The surgery center was very nice and I was in and out in three hours each time. They are extremely upfront about the cost and every single thing is included in the price they give you, including follow ups with my own doctor. I never got asked for a cent more. I would recommend Dr. Shamie to absolutely anyone I know without a single hesitation. "

"I was -9 on both eyes, Dr. Maloney did ICL for me last week, the procedure was so quick, almost felt like having flu shot in my eyes... and next day i was 20/20, two days later i was 20/15, can't explain how it feels to have this miracle happen, everything was so comfortable and smooth in his office, with his staff, in the surgical center.....super professional and well trained team, Dr. Maloney is beyond excellent. Can't recommend more!"

Sandy S.

"I'm typing this without eyeglasses or contacts after 45 years of needing one or the other. Dr. Maloney is an absolute rockstar. He just completed my ICL surgery a few days ago. I AM A NEW PERSON! From my initial evaluation to my continued post-op visits, Dr. Maloney and his entire staff have been incredibly kind, thorough, knowledgeable, and every other wonderful adjective there is. Like I said, I started wearing hard contact lenses as a young child, soft contacts as I got older, but always had a pair of very thick lenses in my eyeglasses which I had to start wearing full time due to dry eyes. Life was different only days ago...I didn't realize the lifelong burden of my horrible eyesight (-10 in both eyes). I've missed out on so much and now I can experience life in a new way. The man is a legend, my hero, has every reason to have a 'god' complex yet is the most compassionate doctor you'll ever meet. Like others have said, THIS IS THE BEST MONEY YOU'LL EVER SPEND IN YOUR LIFE. A million thanks to Doctor Maloney seems inadequate."
