The Doctors of Assil Eye Institute Los Angeles

How it all started...

The Assil Eye Institute (also known as "AEI") represents the highest standards of ophthalmology and patient care in the country. This commitment dates back to 1949, when the Institute was chartered by the father of modern cataract surgery, Dr. Robert M. Sinskey.

 

Dr. Kerry Assil began his career as an academic ophthalmologist working on pioneering techniques and inventions in refractive surgery.  From there Dr. Assil became a renowned surgeon and leader in the field of Cataract and LASIK surgery.

 

In 1995 Dr. Assil was invited by Dr. Robert Sinskey to pursue their mutual vision of building a world-class private eye institute in Los Angeles. Dr. Assil became Chairman and Medical Director of The Sinskey Institute and grew into what is known today as the Assil Eye Institute.

The Assil Institute today

Under Dr. Assil’s leadership, the Assil Eye Institute has assembled a team of top ophthalmology specialists from around the country who continue AEI’s tradition of offering patients the highest quality of specialist eye care in the United States. In keeping with the founding principles of AEI, our doctors have managed to keep their clinics feeling comfortable and familiar, much like how family-run medical practices used to be.

 

Today, the Assil Eye Institute is nationally recognized for its compassionate patient-centric care, its commitment to pioneering advances in ophthalmology and its dedication to supporting the health and well-being of not just its patients, but also of their community.

 

Dr. Assil’s life-long commitment to advancing the field of ophthalmology is evident in his body of work developing new surgical techniques and advances in laser surgery. He lectures internationally and has taught state-of-the art surgical skills to well over 10,000 thousand ophthalmologists worldwide. The Assil Eye Institute has participated in dozens of FDA clinical trials, either as lead investigator or as a member of a multi-center team, testing new ophthalmological devices and surgical techniques.

AEI, giving back to the community

While the doctors at Assil Eye Institute are proud of their academic accomplishments and reputation for providing state-of-the-art vision care, one of the Institute’s founding principles is that of giving back to the community.

 

That’s why AEI has participated in charitable partnerships at the local and international level. Locally, AEI has partnered with the Southern California Lions, providing pro-bono services through the Assil Sight Fund which continues to provide charitable eye care services to Southern Californians on a weekly basis. Our surgeons also travel internationally on medical missions to under-served populations.

 

AEI, Los Angeles' world-class eye institute

Los Angeles' leading LASIK, cataract, and retinal surgeons are available to you, all in one practice.  State-of-the-art treatments for all eye conditions including glaucoma, macular disease, dry eye and diabetic eye conditions, to name just a few.

 

Assil Eye Institute remains laser focused to our founding mission of providing exceptional health care in a compassionate and caring environment. We continue to be driven to advance the field of ophthalmology and give back to our community every day.
