Maloney 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 Surgeon, Dr. Robert Maloney.
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 to perform the cataract surgery without blades of any kind. Dr. Robert Maloney is a pioneer in the field of eye surgery and is widely recognized as providing the best cataract surgery Los Angeles has to offer.Learn More About Laser Cataract Surgery »
The Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is an excellent option for many patients with moderate to severe nearsightness who are either seeking an alternative to LASIK or may not be an ideal candidates for laser vision correction. Dr. Maloney, always a pioneer in the latest eye surgery techniques, is an expert in ICL surgery, 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 and 1/2 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. Dr. Maloney's expertise in performing this surgery is particularly valuable to patients who have some astigmatism in addition to nearsightedness. For these patients, Dr. Maloney can combine LASIK with an ICL to get the best results.Learn More About Implantable Contact Lenses »
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 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?Learn More About LASIK »
