More About the Laser Eye Center - Read our Patient Reviews and Schedule a LASIK Consultation
Abraham Shammas, MD is a highly skilled Laser Eye Center ophthalmologist specializing in refractive surgery. He is one of the most experienced vision correction specialists in the world. The Laser Eye Center has offered the highest quality care for more than 21 years. In the South Bay area, there are two offices; the Long Beach and Torrance LASIK centers.
Dr. Shammas feels strongly that high quality vision after surgery along with patient satisfaction is the essence of a successful practice. This center combines excellent surgeon experience with the most advanced FDA approved technology for vision correction surgery.
Going beyond 20/20 is LEC’s goal for each refractive surgery patient.
At the Laser Eye Center, each patient is meticulously examined by the doctor and staff to determine the best option for vision correction. For Custom LASIK surgery, a wavefront-guided technology is used. This advanced technology provides for each patient to be individually tested and then treated with a customized laser ablation profile. In addition to LASIK, the Laser Eye Center also offers Phakic IOL, PRK, and other laser vision correction procedures.
Dr. Shammas is also a highly skilled IOL (intraocular lens) implant surgeon who performs no-stitch, no-injection, small-incision surgery. He offers the newest technology lenses for vision correction, including the Verisyse lens (for those highly myopic patients who do not qualify for LASIK eye surgery) and the new IOLs that can simultaneously correct for near and distance vision.
The first step in eliminating your dependence on glasses or contact lenses is to contact the Laser Eye Center at (800) 250-7961 to schedule a free consultation to discuss the LASIK procedure, including step-by-step treatment and recovery information, cost estimates, and alternative refractive options.
