Paul First, MD
Though he dedicates part of his time to researching eye diseases, Dr. Paul First specializes in LASIK eye surgery, a procedure he’s performed more than 8,000 times during his 17-year career. Calling on his steady hand and the latest advanced equipment from WavePrint, he removes blurring tissue from the cornea to help eyes focus, typically sharpening vision to 20/20 or greater. Apart from his own practice, Dr. First serves as part of the University of Southern California’s ophthalmology residency program’s teaching faculty, and hopes to one day travel to Mt. Rushmore and convince Teddy Roosevelt to ditch the glasses.
