Eddie's LASIK Surgery Experience at Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute
A musician turned thriving videographer turns to LASIK. Watch Eddie’s Story.
"As an optometrist, I knew all the possible complications that could occur. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about having LASIK, but when I met Dr. Maloney, I was impressed. “The procedure itself was painless. I was in and out of his Westwood office in an hour. On the way home, I stopped at a fast-food restaurant and I could already read the menu board. One month after the surgery, my vision is 20/20 in each eye. I am thrilled."
"Going from wearing glasses or contacts since age 5 to swimming in the oceans of Hawaii on my honeymoon, without fear of losing a contact, is beautifully indescribable. Your performance and personality are that of someone who is doing something in their life that they were born to do. Thank you for giving me a new set of eyes!"
Thank you for providing me with the finest medical care experience I have ever received. When I made the decision to have laser surgery I asked my eye specialist Ronald Goldstein from All Eye Care in West Lake Village, "If you could travel anywhere in the world Doc, who is the one person you would go to for laser surgery?" Dr. Maloney was his highest recommendation. As a movie and TV composer who spends upwards of sixteen hours a day starring at monitors while writing music for film I am amazed at the incredible sharpness and clarity of my new vision, and forever grateful for this new gift of improved sight. The staff at Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute was very professional and Dr. Maloney's attentiveness and attention to detail are simply the best.
"Today, after 36 years, I tossed out my contacts and glasses. For the first time in a year, my eyes were not irritated and dry. You do not know how you have improved my quality of life, but from the first time that I met you, I felt confident and secure that your staff could make a difference. Thank you!"
"Without my glasses, I couldn't read the big 'E' on the eye chart. After LASIK, I drove an Indy car around Texas Motor Speedway to an average speed of 204.7mph without glasses or contacts. It's a miracle!"
"I got the LASIK procedure done a year ago and it was one of the best investments I have made in my life. I live in NY but my family lives in Los Angeles. After a friend referred me to Dr. Maloney, I thought I would take the leap and go for a consultation (with the possibility of getting the procedure done that day as well) during my vacation visiting my family. So glad I did. Although the cost was on the higher end, how can one ever put a price tag on your eyes and vision? Dr. Maloney and his staff were impeccable! I will refer everyone to him!! Thank you for my 20/15 vision!!!!"
"As a surgical ophthalmologist, I depend on essentially flawless visual acuity to perform microscopic eye surgery. The LASIK procedure Dr. Maloney performed on me has made a phenomenal difference in my life. I actually feel younger, more athletic and even more energetic."
"My experience was nothing short of amazing. From the attentive, caring staff to the professionalism each doctor displayed to the stunning quality of my results, I have been left speechless (minus this review). The famous Dr. Maloney was there every step of the way to answer all of my questions and reduce any anxiety (these are my eyes after all). I am now 10 days out from the procedure and I could not be happier. Subsequent examinations from both Dr. Maloney and my regular ophthalmologist have reported that my eyes are healthy, and I am now seeing at 20/15. All I can say is thank you to Dr. Maloney and his staff and to encourage anyone considering LASIK to take the leap. It will be over before you know it and you won't regret your decision."
"Dear Robert, It has been over two years since you performed LASIK on my eyes. I have to say that it has been an absolutely tremendous experience, and I am seeing just as well now as the day after surgery. As a refractive surgeon and having been a principal investigator in clinical trials prior to FDA approval, I was certainly aware of the issues involved in LASIK. However, until I had it myself, I never fully appreciated all of the benefits it allows on a daily basis. I certainly had the choice of going to anyone, and I am proud to say that I very carefully chose to have you perform my surgery. Perhaps I had a unique perspective on choosing to be a patient of yours. Having worked together in clinical trials and having lectured together in training doctors across the country, I felt that I understood your approach to patient care. You always put the patient first with the greatest surgical expertise and clinical evaluations as well as the personal care you provide. This was absolutely my experience."
"About 10 yrs. before I had LASIK I lost most of the vision in one of my eyes because of a congenital problem. Because of that I always thought I would never be a candidate for LASIK. I envied those who could get LASIK. Then one year when I was having my annual checkup with the ophthalmologist who treated me for my vision loss, I asked him about getting LASIK. He told me that absolutely I could do it and recommended Dr. Maloney. The two doctors did confer about my situation given the rarity of my congenital condition. They agreed that I did seem like a good candidate. And, here I am today, almost 12 years to the day later. I still have 20/15 vision. Yay for Dr. Maloney!"
"I found in Dr. Maloney an excellent combination of knowledge, experience and surgical skills. I am glad that I chose him for surgery. He is an outstanding physician, a gifted surgeon and a great human being."
"When it was time for me to have LASIK, I felt that I should have it done only by someone who was world-renowned, so I came to Dr. Maloney. After wearing "coke bottle" glasses since the fifth grade, I am now correction-free."
"On Tuesday, Nov. 26th my life changed for the better. I got LASIK with @maloneyshamievision and now I have 20/15 vision! I finally get to leave all the inconveniences of wearing glasses and contacts behind me in the dust! This literally has been an EYE-OPENING experience and reminder of all blessings that come in and out of our lives. I am eternally grateful to be able to see the world in a whole new way because better than perfect vision is one of the greatest gifts anyone could ever give. This has saved my life in more ways than one and it has made such a substantial difference, especially when riding at night. I can see clearly while splitting lanes without worrying about my vision getting blurred out by dry contacts. Thank you so much to the most trustworthy and reputable team at maloneyshamievision, especially to the beautifully amazing nedashamiemd, who personally worked on my eyes. Special shout out to my high school friend who made the referral and is also now a talented Doctor- whyitsjesus Love you guys! Video coming soon."

"So, after 25 years of wearing specs and contact lenses, I now have better than 20/20 vision thanks to Dr Robert Maloney and all the amazing technicians and staff maloneyshamievision in Los Angeles. @the_mcgiff was right, don't know why I left it so long! #lasik #miracle #nopain #noregrets #wortheverypenny #maloneyshamievision"
"My first day with 20/20 vision thanks to Dr. Maloney at maloneyvision & referral from my friend @garthmd 🤗 Perfect vision is the greatest gift 😊💗 What a fantastic team there. Feeling like a child seeing the world for the first time with these new eyes! 😍"
"Thank you to Dr. Maloney & staff @maloneyshamievision for giving me the best vision I’ve ever had after getting Lasik. Finally able to wake up and see clearly without contacts or glasses 🙏🏼👁✨"
"Not many people know that I’ve worn glasses and contacts for over 15 years! I can’t even keep count of how many times I’ve destroyed glasses and lost contacts during adventures, which can ultimately become life-threatening. As you all know I ride my motorcycles every day as a daily commuter and on top of that, I live a crazy, busy lifestyle traveling around the world and love extreme sports and shooting guns. These are all activities where good vision is crucial. I’ve lost contacts while swimming or they dry up and blow out of my eyes while riding, including while riding on the track and freeway, which is incredibly dangerous because everyone is riding hard and fast. I need my eyes to ride! lol . On Tuesday, Nov. 26th my life changed for the better. I got LASIK with @maloneyshamievision and now I have 20/15 vision! 😱 I finally get to leave all the inconveniences of wearing glasses and contacts behind me in the dust! .

"Waking up and being able to see after 15 years of wearing contacts is the CRAZIEST thing! So thankful for my LASIK experience at @maloneyvision, my sight is now 20/15 👀🙏🏼"
