“I feel fortunate to live in a time where technology and experience allow us to offer so many people an improved quality of life through better vision.

As a fellowship trained cornea/refractive surgeon, I do a vast array of surgeries to help improve vision, and LASIK is one of the most common. It is amazing what we can do for vision with modern technology. Here at Inland Eye Specialists, we have made a significant investment to bring you the best of this technology including advanced customized wavefront guided treatments and bladeless (all-Laser) LASIK. These allow for unmatched visual and functional results with minimal recovery time.”
