LASIK – Los Angeles
ALL-LASER LASIK is the gold standard in vision correction surgery. However, some people are not LASIK candidates for one reason or another. At Assil Eye Institute, we are committed to helping each patient to safely realize their dream of great eyesight. We therefore employ multiple alternative options to LASIK that will allow people for whom LASIK isn’t appropriate, to still achieve freedom from eyeglasses and contacts.

What is LASIK and is it for me?
LASIK is an acronym that stands for Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis. LASIK is the most exciting technique of laser vision correction being sought after worldwide. The ALL-LASER LASIK procedure combines the precision of the Star S4 Excimer Laser, iFS™ Intralase™, the eyes own natural healing power, and the skill of a surgeon you can trust.
Assil Eye Institute Los Angeles employs the most advanced technology available in its LASIK Center. Dr. Assil believes procedure precision as well as patient safety and comfort are the most important factors when performing LASIK surgery. We are thus the only center that houses two identical ALL-LASER LASIK suites.
Both Los Angeles suites are equipped with an iFS™ Intralase™ laser for blade-free LASIK as well as the VISX ™ STAR Excimer Laser System for sculpting the cornea and 4D WaveScan Wavefront™ technology for optimal treatment accuracy. We calibrate the lasers between each treatment and our calibration standards are tighter than the manufacturer’s standards. This means if one LASIK suite doesn’t meet our exacting standards, we have another system ready to go; a testament to our commitment to patient safety and excellence.
There are many types of LASIK. Dr. Kerry Assil, founder of The Assil Eye Institute, talks about the various forms of LASIK including iLASIK, ELASIK and other vision correction solutions like KAMRA for near vision.
Assil Eye Institute offers many different types of procedures including LASIK. When it comes to cost, there many different options to consider. Some of our most frequent questions are:
Who will do my procedure?
What procedure is best for my eyes?
Will I need more than one type of procedure for my correction?
Will I see 20/20 after my procedure?
For this reason, we offer our patients a complimentary consultation to be able to gather information about your eyes and answer all of these questions and more. Once our specialists determine what procedure(s) are right for you, we can then address the cost(s).
All of our procedures can be financed through Care Credit to make any procedure affordable with available 24 month, no interest financing.
We will provide you with all the answers you need to make an informed decision about your vision correction needs. In addition can work with your tax free Flexible Spending Account or your Health Savings Account or a combination.

LASIK Patient Reviews – Los Angeles
Hooray! I just had Lasik yesterday with Dr. Assil, and I can already see better than 20-20. It was basically painless.
I ended up having Lasik 2 weeks ago. Best decision I have ever made. Wish I had done it years ago. It was easy and it is a joy to finally see! I visited 3 other doctors before deciding on Dr. Assil. I wanted the best and that’s what I got.
I don’t post very many reviews but I just had to share. Every time I visit Dr. Assil’s office, it’s the best experience ever- from his friendly, not to mention professional staff, to the man himself! I refuse to go anywhere else. My LASIK was done in 2007 and wow, now it’s 2015 and still 20/20… all these years later.
