Why Choose Us?
Although the idea of refractive surgery can be intimidating, most refractive surgeries can be completed in under 30 minutes. They are also performed as outpatient procedures, meaning you can go home on the same day as your treatment.
Improved Quality of Life
By addressing issues such as nearsightedness or farsightedness with LASIK or PRK, you can achieve clearer vision without relying on eyeglasses or contact lenses. For patients with cataracts, cataract surgery can also provide life-changing outcomes. We are dedicated to providing or coordinating the care you need to maintain your best possible vision.

Corrective Surgeries Our San Diego-Based Practice Offers
Cataracts are a gradual clouding of the crystalline lens, which lays behind the pupil and focuses light onto the retina. The condition can be managed, but surgical replacement of the crystalline lens is the only permanent solution. We can use either traditional surgical techniques or laser techniques to remove the lens and replace it with an intraocular lens (IOL). Standard IOLs provide focus at one distance, and patients continue to wear glasses to achieve a broader range of focus. However, we also provide premium IOLs that can reduce or eliminate the need for corrective eyewear.
LASIK is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and, in some cases, presbyopia, or age-related farsightedness. This procedure is virtually painless, and once the preparation is complete, the surgery itself takes less than 10 minutes to complete. During the procedure, a flap is created in the outer layer of the cornea (the dome-like front surface of the eye). The center layer of the cornea is then reshaped with a laser to correct refractive errors.
Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is also used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The PRK procedure predates LASIK, and while recovery typically takes longer, the results are virtually the same. Rather than creating a corneal flap, PRK involves removing the entire outer layer of the cornea so the laser can reshape the inner corneal layer. The removed tissue regenerates over the course of several days following the procedure. We often recommend PRK for patients who do not qualify for LASIK.
The KAMRA Inlay is placed within the cornea of the non-dominant eye to correct presbyopia. The inlay itself is smaller and much thinner than a contact lens. This lens works in tandem with your dominant eye so that you can view objects up close and at a distance.
A pterygium, sometimes referred to as “surfer’s eye," is a growth that develops on the white part of the eye near the inner corner of the eyelids. However, it can eventually spread to the cornea and affect your vision. In most cases, a pterygium is treated with steroidal eye drops, special contact lenses, and other treatments. If a pterygium does not go away with these treatments, we may recommend surgical removal. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete.
"Always friendly and always professional."
Always friendly and always professional. I have been a patient in this practice for 25 years and Dr Wong(s) and their team always offer the latest science and modern procedures for testing eye health and providing vision improvement. I also love their selection of eyewear.View On Google
A highly professional exam led to a prescription that allowed me to ditch my reading glasses and see better long distance. It is awesome. I don't know if this can be done for everyone, but for me, it is a great new way to see the world.View On Google
