The Doctors of Assil Gaur Eye Institute

How it all started...

The Assil Gaur Eye Institute (also known as "AGEI") 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 Gaur Eye Institute.

Learn about the AGEI advantage

Under Dr. Assil’s leadership, the Assil Gaur Eye Institute has assembled a team of top ophthalmology specialists from around the country who continue AGEI’s tradition of offering patients the highest quality of specialist eye care in the United States. In keeping with the founding principles of AGEI, 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 Gaur 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 its 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 Gaur Eye Institute has participated in dozens of FDA clinical trials, either as the lead investigator or as a member of a multi-center team, testing new ophthalmological devices and surgical techniques.

AGEI, giving back to the community

While the doctors at Assil Gaur 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 giving back to the community.

 

That’s why AGEI has participated in charitable partnerships at the local and international levels. Locally, AGEI 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 underserved populations.

 

AGEI, 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 Gaur Eye Institute remains laser-focused on 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.
