Dr. Robert Maloney & Dr. Shamie have personally performed over 75,000 vision correction procedures.

Los Angeles Eye Surgeon, Dr. Robert Maloney, founder of Los Angeles’ Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute, has been performing vision correction surgery, including LASIK, ICL, PRK, RLE, and advanced laser cataract surgeries, for more than 25 years. His partner, Dr. Neda Shamie, has been performing those same refractive and cataract procedures as well as complex cornea transplants for over 15 years.

Many procedures and techniques now in widespread use were pioneered right here at MSVI, an approved U.S. FDA Study Center and site for over 20 FDA trials.

If you can't see as well as you would like to without glasses or contact lenses, are over 18 years of age, have a healthy cornea and have had stable vision over the past year, it is very likely that we can help you. Advances in vision correction technology have made glasses-free vision possible for nearly everyone.
