Soroudi Advanced LASIK Eye Centers
Dr. Ebbie Soroudi, MD, MS, established the Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Center in 2006. Since then, he has touched the lives of over 20,000 patients, many of whom went from being nearly blind to seeing their loved ones grow up and prosper.
Although Dr. Soroudi takes care of any patient regardless of the eye condition they present, his natural gift is treating severe conditions that most doctors would not feel comfortable handling. Throughout his career, he has treated thousands of patients. Many of these patients were told they didn’t qualify for LASIK surgery or that nothing else could be done to help them. This level of dedication and expertise is what brings many of Dr. Soroudi’s patience from around the world seeking treatment from him.
Aside from being a physician and a surgeon, Dr. Soroudi is a bioengineer. In fact, he graduated at the top of his class from the University of Southern California (USC) – one of the top engineering schools in the world.
With a strong background in engineering, Dr. Soroudi approaches every patient with a level of precision unmatched by many – if not all – of his medical peers. He is extremely meticulous, his measurements and executions are accurate to the decimal point, and his way of solving problems is truly different than most, if not all his colleagues.
Dr. Soroudi trained at one of the busiest level-one trauma centers in the world, where he had the opportunity to help military patients and train with surgeons as they treated badly-damaged eyes. Through this incredible experience as a resident and chief resident, Dr. Soroudi learned to salvage the delicate structure of the human eye.
During this time, he developed the skills needed to treat advanced cataracts, high-risk surgery patients, and individuals whose eyes were filled with blood from diabetes. He also performed glaucoma surgery on patients who, without proper treatment, would have gone permanently blind in a matter of days.
Dr. Soroudi supplemented his training in ophthalmology by doing sub-specialty training exclusively in refractive surgery, where he mastered the art of performing LASIK, PRK, Intacs, and Refractive Lens Exchange and Cataract Surgery. Having successfully performed over 20,000 cases, Dr. Soroudi earned his reputation as one of the best eye surgeons in the country.
He has even written a book on the most advanced technologies available in the field of Refractive Surgery today.
Dr. Soroudi has performed Vision Corrective Surgery on some of the most elite clientele in the world. His list of clients include royalty, movie stars, musicians, dentists, surgeons (including brain surgeons, plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons, and oral surgeons), accountants, attorneys, pharmacists, and dozens of engineers (including a NASA engineer who helped develop the Hubble Telescope). He has performed vision correction surgery for his entire family, including his own mother and grandmother, and over 99% of Dr. Soroudi’s patients who undergo laser vision correction see 20/20 or better!
