Dr. Linda Vu
Serving patients seeking laser eye surgery, LASIK eye surgery in San Gabriel Valley, Downtown LA and Monterey Park
Linda Vu, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract and refractive surgery. Dr. Vu has served the San Gabriel Valley area for more than a decade and has performed more than 13,000 eye procedures. Dr. Vu shares a unique understanding with LASIK patients, as she now has freedom from glasses and contact lenses due to LASIK surgery. She strongly believes in the safety and effectiveness of LASIK surgery and has performed the procedure on many of her family members, friends, and healthcare professionals at the local hospitals where she is also a staff surgeon.
Dr. Vu performs both LASIK and Epi-LASIK, which allows her to treat a wide range of patients, including those with thin corneas. She begins the LASIK procedure by creating a map of the eye that outlines all of the cornea's flaws. Then, she uses this map to calibrate the WaveLight Allegretto Wave excimer laser, one of the latest Wavefront lasers on the market. Next, she creates a small flap in the cornea and uses the excimer laser to correct its flaws. Last, the flap is returned to its original position, where it acts as a natural bandage to the eye. In Epi-LASIK, Dr. Vu does not create a corneal flap, but rather, removes a small amount of the cornea's outer layer before administering the excimer laser.
In addition to LASIK surgery, Dr. Vu and her surgical team perform cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens implants, as well as refractive lens exchange, corneal refractive eye therapy and conductive keratoplasty. She also offers blepharoplasty, a cosmetic and sometimes medically necessary procedure that treats sagging skin in the eyelid area. Many patients are surprised to learn that this procedure may be covered by their insurance company.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. Linda Vu?
"I am a firefighter and a paramedic intern. To be hired as a paramedic, I needed at least near perfect vision in one eye, which is why I went to see Dr. Vu. Her staff was beyond professional and knowledgeable. Everything was explained to me and careful instructions for preparation were given. A week after LASIK, I easily passed my paramedic final exam. My sharp 20/20 vision will help me better assess dangerous environments. Thank you, Dr. Vu, for helping me continue my chosen profession!" Steven L.
"The Greatest! I don't think there are any better words to describe Eye Zone Medical. Dr. Vu and her crew are very kind, professional and efficient.

"I want to let you know how great it is to wake up and see everything so clear and in focus. Before my LASIK, I would have to try to remember where I put my glasses or wait until after my shower to put on my contacts. I thought I knew all about LASIK after doing research on the internet and visiting several LASIK centers. There are so many acronyms and machines out there. Thank you for taking the time to answer my many, many questions, and for guiding me through my LASIK procedure step-by-step. My husband was very surprised how quick the procedure was. He went outside to grab a magazine from his car and I was done by the time he came back in the office! You and your staff were awesome! Thank you so much for taking such good care of me." Yan Y.

"I was nervous about the surgery, but you walked me through the entire procedure from beginning to end and answered all my questions to put me at ease. You were absolutely right! The procedure was quick and painless. Corrective laser eye surgery has changed my life. Words cannot describe how amazing I feel to wake up in the morning and see clearly no fumbling for glasses or messing with contact solution! Glasses really bothered me and contacts were such a pain. It's been a while since the surgery and my vision is crystal-clear day and night; it's fantastic! I made the right decision to come to you for the surgery. Your expertise combined with your friendly staff made my experience a memorable one. I would recommend this procedure and your practice to anyone who is considering it. The benefits are greater than you could expect. I can't believe I waited this long to get LASIK. Thanks Dr. Vu." Claudia L.
