Lasik Eye Surgery in Los Angeles and Orange County
Dr. Moosa, who is our chief LASIK surgeon in Orange County, utilizes the most state-of-the-art and advanced technology in laser vision procedures since our goal at Excel Laser Vision Institute is to take our patient’s eye health and care very seriously.
Excel Laser Vision Institute’s Los Angeles and Orange County offices use the first-rate, cutting-edge, Wavelight EX500 laser and the Visumax. Excel Laser Vision is one of a handful of LASIK Orange County clinics to offer this new LASIK laser technology.
We know all too well at Excel Laser Vision Insitute that when a patient decides to have LASIK eye surgery it is an important decision that they have taken to make a lasting and profound effect on their vision and their life. For this reason, we make sure that every patient at the Excel Laser Vision Institute has the most outstanding laser treatment and care that is tailor-made to suit them and their needs.
It is surprising for many of us to believe that LASIK has been around since the 1970s, but the Food and Drug Administration did not approve it for eye surgery until 1995! When eye doctors were finally allowed to use LASIK technology, they used the laser to treat patients with myopia.
As time went on, doctors and scientists refined the LASIK procedure which resulted in a safer and more effective procedure. Nowadays, LASIK surgery is the most common form of corrective eye surgery.
People with eye conditions and eye surgeons all over the world have Dr. Gholam A. Peyman to thank for LASIK. He is a retina surgeon and ophthalmologist who invented LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis).
In 1989, he received the first patent in the United States for this procedure. Apart from being the pioneer to laser eye surgery, Dr. Peyman holds 124 other patents in the U.S. for numerous intraocular drug delivery systems, new treatment and diagnostic methods, medical devices, and surgical techniques.
In 1991, LASIK was first performed in the United States during clinical trials. Ever since then, various techniques and advancements have been established for LASIK surgery. Dr. Peyman is responsible for a couple of these, but other medical and scientific professionals have also made various contributions to the improvement of LASIK.
Due to his efforts, we now have the new VisuMax® laser, which is a revolutionary laser system that uses exceptional precision which is most often used in SMILE eye surgery. Besides being very precise, it is swift. Patients are done with their eye laser surgery in a blink of an eye! (No pun intended).

A few minutes after your procedure at our LASIK eye centers in Los Angeles and Orange County, you will be able to see the future clearly with incredible vision. Laser vision correction surgery will save you plenty of money over your lifetime as well since you will no longer have to order new glasses and/or contact lenses. Glasses and contacts are fine for temporary correction, but there is nothing like the feeling of your natural vision. Not to mention, glasses and contacts can get scratched, lost or broken.
For many people, clear vision without the help of glasses or contacts seemed impossible, until advancements in LASIK made it more accessible and safer than ever before. Just think about what life will be like without the hassle of worrying where you put your glasses, or the daily routine of cleaning and putting in your contacts. If you’re an active person, you’ll no longer have to worry about your eyes when you’re running on the beach, swimming in the ocean, or just simply enjoying an active lifestyle in beautiful Southern California.
Our unique patient care philosophy when performing laser eye surgery in Los Angeles and Orange County begins with each consultation. It is here that each individual’s case is evaluated by only the most experienced doctors. From the moment you walk into either of our two Excel Laser Vision Institute centers, Dr. Moosa will be intricately involved in your eye care. This allows our patients to feel more comfortable about their upcoming LASIK procedure, and ensures that all information discussed is double-checked before the LASIK surgery.
According to the latest research by the American Refractive Surgery Council, LASIK eye surgery results in 99 percent of patients achieving better than 20/40 vision and over 90 percent attain 20/20 vision or better. Additionally, over 95 percent of patients report that they were satisfied with the results from having LASIK surgery. This is the highest satisfaction rate of any elective medical procedure.
Questions to ask before having LASIK surgery
If you are considering having a LASIK procedure, here are a few important questions to ask your doctor prior to scheduling your vision correction procedure.
- How many LASIK surgeries have you performed?
Patients may feel more at ease knowing that their surgeon has performed LASIK hundreds, or in our case, thousands of times.
- Should I avoid certain medication before the procedure?
As you will be sedated for your LASIK procedure, it’s a good idea to ask your surgeon if any of the medications you are on could potentially interfere with the effectiveness of the sedative used during the procedure.
- Where will the procedure be done?
Since LASIK machines are rather large and heavy, LASIK procedures are generally done where the machines are located. Be sure to ask about the location of the procedure as it might be a different location from your surgeon’s office. Since we have locations for LASIK surgery in Los Angeles and Orange County, you want to be sure that you are coming to the right place for your procedure.
- What kind of results should I expect?
Your LASIK surgeon should set your expectations about the results of your procedure. As you may know, LASIK surgery is used to treat a wide variety of refractive issues, but the severity of your vision problem may impact the results of the procedure. If you have a more severe refractive problem, your surgeon may need to repeat the procedure years later to ensure optimal results.
