When skimming Dr. Robert T. Lin’s credentials, the number 25,000 stands out. It represents how many successful refractive surgeries he has completed in his career. One can only assume that several of those tallies come from the time he spent developing Micro-LASIK, a form of laser eye surgery considered less invasive than traditional LASIK because it creates a thinner corneal flap and no longer requires eyes to answer personal questions such as “When is the last time you had direct contact with a contact?” Dr. Lin founded IQ Laser Vision in 1999 and has since added an equally as skilled staff of fellow eye doctors who specialize in refractive eye surgery procedures, cataracts, Ortho-K, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative eye care.
Lasik Today's six eye surgeons clear up vision with surgical procedures such as bladeless LASIK, implantable contact lenses, cataract surgery, and Pterygium removal. They can improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, detect eye diseases such as glaucoma, and treat dry eyes with the help of eye drops or watering cans. They also beautify areas around the eyes with Latisse eyelash serum and Botox or Juvéderm beauty injections and offer complimentary beverages and snacks to their patients.

Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
Since 1997, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Ferzaad Moosa has performed more than 60,000 LASIK procedures, gaining a level of expertise that inspired Top 10 LASIK to name him one of California's 10 best surgeons. After receiving his MD from Harvard Medical School, the doctor served an internship in Internal Medicine at UCLA and completed a three-year residency at the esteemed Doheny Eye Institute.
Dr. Moosa corrects nearsightedness and farsightedness with increasingly advanced laser systems, employing wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea while reducing negative side effects such as poor night vision or spontaneous disco-ball mirages. The machine also tracks the position of the eye 200 times every second, instantly pausing if it moves out of range.
