Laser Vision Correction & Cataract Surgery
We are affiliated with and co-manage laser corrective surgery at Coastal Vision and NVISION Laser Eye Centers. We work with Dr. Thomas Tooma and other top surgeons.
Dr. Thomas Tooma
Tom Tooma, M.D., Founder and Medical Director of NVISION Laser Eye Centers has performed more than 100,000 LASIK procedures, including procedures on more than 250 eye doctors.
“I was the first in California to perform LASIK surgery and the first to perform Custom Wavefront Guided LASIK. I was also the first in the U.S. to use the Femtosecond Laser (IntraLase FS30 – All Laser LASIK). Using the IntraLase laser rather than the blade (microkeratome) makes the procedure safer and more precise, and increases the chance of 20/20 or better vision.”
Dr. Tooma is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, the Castroviejo Corneal Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and many others.
Dr. Tooma has held positions as Chief, Department of Ophthalmology, Loma Linda University Community Hospital, Director of Cornea Service, Department of Ophthalmology, Loma Linda University, and Director of Refractive Surgery, Department of Ophthalmology, Loma Linda University
He has performed a wide variety of professional investigative studies for laser developers and manufacturers and eye lens manufacturers to accelerate the advancement of laser corrective surgery and intraolcular lenses.
Today Dr. Tooma continues medical teaching missions around the world as he as over the past 18 years.
