State-of-the-art Vision Correction: Dr. Robert Maloney and Dr. Neda Shamie are some of the nation’s leaders in vision correction research.
3D Mapping your eyes for precision LASIK surgery.
At Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute, the first step toward great vision is all in the details. We begin by scanning your eyes with the iDesign Advanced Wavescan System to obtain a complete and precise 3D map of your eye’s unique imperfections, capturing over 1,200 points of data per eye. This detailed digital map is then used during your LASIK procedure to individually address each tiny imperfection. The result is a correction so customized and precise, the majority of patients see 20/16 or better the next day. Precision of this caliber is only possible because of recent advances in digital technology.
The pattern of visual imperfections in your eye is as unique to you as your fingerprint. Using WaveScan® based digital technology, originally developed for use in high-powered NASA telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space, we can now identify, measure and correct imperfections in your eyes 25 times more precisely than with standard methods used for measuring you for glasses and contact lenses. This information is transferred to the VISX laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy.
Reach the full potential of your vision
Regular vision correction is based on evaluation of a single point: as you’ve heard so many times from your eye doctor, "Which is better, 1 or 2?"
In sharp contrast, Wavefront Guided Measurements vision correction allows us to measure the visual imperfections in your eyes at 1200 individual points.
We can treat each of the 1200 points individually to create a personalized vision correction that is ideal for you. This treatment can potentially provide better vision than you have ever experienced with glasses or contact lenses. The painless scanning process takes less than one minute.
Dr. Maloney and Dr. Shamie’s expertise ensures high-quality results
Dr. Robert Maloney was the first U.S. surgeon to use the Wavefront technology as a guide for LASIK Vision Correction Surgery, and he and Dr. Neda Shamie at the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute have been successfully using that technology with his patients since 2003. Wavefront has gone through a series of advances and improvements over the years, the latest in 2015 with the approval of iDesign Advanced Wavescan Studio System. Dr. Maloney was a FDA Principal Investigator for the iDesign U.S. trials and the Maloney-Shamie Vision Institute was the first center in Los Angeles to offer iDesign LASIK.
"In my sport, great vision is essential to success. I no longer have to wear bothersome contact lenses and worry about sand getting caught underneath them.
