Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
At East Vale Optometry, Dr. Vance T. Nguyen oversees a stock of more than 1,000 designer frames. Brands such as Gucci, DKNY, and Calvin Klein line the shelves, ready to be fitted with prescription lenses and worn as both a vision aid and a fashion accessory. However, Dr. Nguyen's dealings have to do with more than trends. With nearly two decades of private practice under his belt, he cares for eyes with preventative and curative treatments. He can test for glaucoma, address infections, and provide pre- and post-op care for Lasik patients, as well as fit contact lenses. He and his staff are also multilingual, and accommodate English-, Spanish-, and Vietnamese-speaking clients.
Dena M. Mintz, O.D. follows in her late father's footsteps. Dena has been practicing since 1988 and has made a name for herself as a specialist in contact-lens fitting. She and her staff of optometrists, opticians, and optometric technicians are also fully licensed and equipped to offer evaluations, treatments of eye diseases, and digital photography that may detect conditions that include glaucoma or macular degeneration.
The office stocks modern technology such as premium options of lenses on the market, including Zeiss and Varilux products, and the staff excels in pairing frames from designers such as Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nike, Sean John, and more with clients' facial features. The result is glasses that give new dimension to personal looks and help patients see the most subtle detail, whether it's of a painting, a concert stage, or the informational brochure on how to clean their new lenses.
When he's not doing missionary ophthalmic work in Mexico or providing eye care for victims of domestic abuse, Dr. Armin Vishteh partakes in continuing medical-education courses to stay up to date with industry techniques and help bestow patients with the best care possible. The American Board of Ophthalmology–certified medical director of Rancho Laser Vision Center has corrected nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in more than 20,000 eyes with laser-based LASIK and PRK procedures. Before bolstering patients’ blinkers, Rancho Laser Vision Center offers a complimentary consultation, during which Dr. Vishteh discusses their vision health and how it may affect their eligibility for laser vision correction or x-ray-vision installation.
