Cataract Surgery – Los Angeles

“We’ve been fortunate to have been the very first or amongst the first centers in either the world or in the U.S., to bring forward the advancement of numerous key technologies relating to eye surgery. These include the realm of cataract surgery. 

For example, we participated in the initial FDA studies and subsequent studies with a lens platform called the TECNIS lenses. TECNIS lenses have been revolutionary lenses for patients over the past 10 years (including the Multifocal and Symfony series), for allowing people to see both up close and far away without glasses.

We are among the first to work with cold ultrasound and the first to measure and confirm that the selected lens implant is the ideal match for each eye DURING surgery. Additionally, we were first to use the Lensar laser to improve the precision of visual outcome from cataract surgery.

TECNIS Symfony Intraocular Lens

Dr. Assil has been instrumental in the development of the Premium IOL category and serves as the Phase 4 Principle Investigator to AMO (Johnson and Johnson) for the Symfony Lens.

You would be hard-pressed to find a surgeon with more experience with Premium Cataract surgery than Dr. Assil.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Our doctors utilize Dr. Assil’s personally developed algorithm to determine which particular Premium IOL is most likely to achieve the highest quality of vision for each patient. This algorithm takes into account the existing shape of the person’s eye i.e. corneal shape, pupil size and distance from the front surface to the retina.  Presence of other conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or diabetes are also taken into consideration in determining the overall health of the eye.

Assil Eye Institute’s laser cataract procedure requires only local anesthesia (eye drops) and takes typically less than 10 minutes per eye to complete.

Precision placement of Premium IOL’s by Assil Eye Institute surgeons regularly help patients eliminate their dependence on reading and distance glasses alike.

Return of visual function is rapid and most normal activities can be resumed the very next day.

Cataract Patient Reviews – Los Angeles

When my cataracts were removed by Dr. Assil, I thought Well, God Bless YOU. I now have 20-40 vision, instead of partial blindness. He is amazing, and on a scale of one to ten, “ten” being the best. He is a ten. Nothing to fear in his hands.

When I was diagnosed with cataracts, I thought my Aviation career had come to end. But thanks To Dr. Kerry Assil who performed some real great surgery and follow up. No more cataracts. I’m now good to go.

My cataract removals went perfectly and my eyesight is excellent again. The final test was the following week when I had to perform cataract surgery on my own patients. The step in the procedure that was giving me some difficulty became routine again.

My great thanks to Dr Assil and his wonderful staff!
