Your LASIK Surgery in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties

The Inland Empire boasts a group of refractive surgeons with experience, facilities and technology that rival any U.S. metropolitan area. Thomas S. Tooma, MD, Jonathan R. Pirnazar, MD and Richard Burns, MD, have established NVISION Laser Eye Centers with many locations, in Ontario in the Inland Empire. Other experienced ophthalmologists in the area include Jean Cheng, MD, Armin Vishteh, MD, Mark Schneider, MD, and Abraham Shammas, MD.

In addition to LASIK, these surgeons routinely perform laser eye procedures such as PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), LASEK and Epi-LASIK; as well as non-laser surgeries such as implantation of phakic intraocular lenses. Although LASIK is the best known of these procedures, these are only some of the surgeries that address nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

One of these surgeries might be a better choice than LASIK for a prospective patient based on factors such as refractive error and corneal thickness. Some surgeons will strongly consider an implant when a potential patient is at, near or beyond ten diopters of myopia. As well, sometimes a cornea that's thinner than normal will prompt a surgeon to consider a procedure that minimizes the removal of corneal tissue.
