LASIK at Laser Eye Center

Each and every patient of Dr. Shammas receives a thorough examination prior to treatment. Aiding him in these efforts are the talented staff members of Laser Eye Center. With their assistance, Dr. Shammas uses state-of-the-art equipment to determine which vision correction procedure should be performed. For patients considering custom LASIK he uses wavefront technology to create a map of the eyes, which shows the curvature of the cornea — including all of its imperfections.

For patients who are not good candidates for LASIK, Dr. Shammas may perform another procedure such as PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) or lens implantation with implantable contact lenses (ICLs), also called phakic IOLs. Dr. Shammas performs this procedure with Verisyse or another ICL, depending on the eye care needs of the patient.

Patient Testimonials – Comments from Patients of Laser Eye Center

"Almost two years ago I made the "decision" to visit the Laser Eye Center of Los Angeles. I was very nervous, but the wonderful staff calmed my fears while I had the vision correction surgery. Now, I can't believe that I waited so long. There was no pain and very little recovery time. As soon as it was over, I knew that my life would change forever – and it did. I could see right away. The next morning, I played 18 holes of golf. I still can't believe it!!!"
—Shawn Parr, KZLA 93.9 F.M.

"Thank you, Laser Eye Center of Los Angeles! I'm thrilled that my vision has been permanently corrected with the LASIK procedure. From waking up and being able to see the clock and read-out on my nightstand, to driving, watching television, even putting on make-up – being able to see clearly without wearing glasses is truly amazing! I had the procedure done on a Friday and went to the mall that weekend and bought a pair of non-prescription sunglasses. What a treat! Thanks again." —Cindy Davis, KOLA 99.9 FM

"I am enjoying the benefits of the LASIK procedure from Laser Eye Center of Los Angeles. I just had my four-month check-up and continue to see 20/20. Each day, I marvel at the vision correction technology and the skills of the doctors at Laser Eye Center. I want to extend a heartfelt note of thanks to the entire staff.

It is truly amazing that something that takes just a few minutes can translate into such a change. Today, I see without my glasses. And, I don't miss contacts either. They used to dry my eyes. It really makes a difference in my appearance as well. I would encourage anyone dependent on glasses or contact lenses to consider LASIK at the Laser Eye Center." —Larry Marino, KIEV 870 AM
