Soroudi Advanced Technology
At the Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Center, we take special pride in employing the most advanced technology available in the country to provide the best results for our patients. This dedication starts from our reception desk to our call-center to the exam room and the operating suite.
Advanced Laser Vision Correction
100% Bladeless, Customized, Topography-guided z-LASIK using the most advanced technology in the world
See BETTER than 20/20!
The Ziemer Z8 Femto LDV Laser
- We are proud to announce that our center is one of only a few LASIK-centers in the entire Los Angeles area equipped with the newest Ziemer Z8 Femptosecond Laser. This ultra-precise technology provides our patients with a 100% blade-free LASIK experience and prevents the need for using any sharp objects to perform this extremely delicate procedure. This makes this procedure extremely quick (10 seconds per eye), painless, and safe!
- The precision of this device allows Dr. Soroudi to create super-thin “flaps” (as thin as 90um) in the Cornea, which allows him to offer LASIK to people with much higher prescriptions than ever before (up to -11 Diopters of near-sightedness, +6 Diopters of far-sightedness, AND up to 6.5 Diopters of Astigmatism.
- This incredibly accurate laser is also the fastest and least invasive technology in the world today, transferring the least amount of energy to the Cornea. This provides for a very quick & painless procedure, with a very rapid recovery! Utilizing this technology, some of our patients see 20/20 after LASIK even before they leave the office!
- This device also causes minimal redness after surgery. Older technologies (e.g., the intralase laser) cause tiny hemorrhages on the white part of the eye (sub-conjunctival hemorrhages) for weeks after surgery; the Z8 minimizes this common side-effect, and our patient’s eyes are white and comfortable just the next morning after surgery.
Dr. Soroudi is one of a small group of LASIK specialists in Los Angeles who possess their own temperature- and humidity-controlled LASIK Surgical Suites in-house (instead of going to an open-access surgery center).
We are so proud to announce that our center is equipped with the all-new Alcon Alegretto Wavelight EX500 Flying Spot Excimer Laser.
The Alegretto laser allows Dr. Soroudi to perform a customized, “wavefront-guided ablation profile” to his patients who demand just the absolute BEST in vision correction technology: better vision, day and night!
This technology maintains the natural corneal shape, which minimized the potential for night-time glare, even in very high prescriptions (up to -10 Diopters of Nearsightedness!).
Also, because of its speed (takes only 1.4 seconds per Diopter), it reduce the potential for dehydration of the cornea and minimizes patient fixation fatigue, allowing for a much more pleasant and seamless LASIK experience.
At the same time, with a powerful 1050 Hz-type multi-dimensional eye tracker, the EX500 offers safety and exceptional precision in case someone moves their eye during surgery.
We are so confident of our technology, and Dr. Soroudi’s track record of over 15,000 successful LASIK surgeries, that we actually GUARANTEE our qualified patients with 20/20 vision. This is our testament to providing absolute highest standards in vision correction surgery found anywhere in the world.
We also provide interest-free financing, and follow-ups at no added charge for one year after LASIK. If, for any reason, you require an enhancement procedure, we cover all costs for up to one year!
Lens-based Vision Correction
Advanced, small-incision, Cataract/Lens Replacement Surgery
(See 20/20 for far, near, and intermediate with EACH eye!)
Lens-based vision correction is commonly used to treat cataracts and correct the vision of people who are not good candidates for LASIK (especially those older than 50 years of age.
Thanks to the amazing refinements in surgical technology and modern intra-ocular lens design, we are now able to provide our patients with incredibly sharp visual acuity and clarity after lens implantation for far, intermediate, and near distances, so they can throw away their bifocals or reading glasses.
This procedure is completed in a matter of 7-10 minutes on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our own eye specialty surgery centers, using only minor sedation and topical anesthesia. Your private medical insurance (including Medicare) may even cover the cost of this operation if you qualify.
Take advantage of the absolute BEST Technology for Cataract/Lens Replacement Surgery:
The Newest Alcon Centurion Phacoemulsification Robot
Aside from your surgeon’s experience, a successful Cataract/Lens Replacement Surgery depends on the equipment used to assist your doctor provide you with the safest, least invasive surgery, and the best results. We are so proud to announce that our Medicare-approved surgery center (highest standard in the US) is equipped with the newest, most advanced technology in Cataract Surgery anywhere in the world! The Alcon Centurion Vision System is the state of the art in the world, and it’s available in-house at the Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Centers. There is no better technology in the field of Cataract Surgery in the world.
100% Blade-Free Cataract Surgery
We are proud to be one of only a few elite practices in Los Angeles which offers the best and the newest “Femtosecond” Cataract technology in the world to our patients. The Ziemer Z8 laser allows Dr. Soroudi to also perform his Cataract/Lens Operations ever more precisely than before, without using any blades! By performing all the critical steps of the procedure, this laser provides for a much more accurate and safer alternative to conventional “blade” Cataract Surgery with outstanding visual outcomes for those who demand the BEST in their vision corrective procedure!
The ORA intraoperative aberrometer with VerifEye+ Technology
Once the lens is removed, it is imperative that it is replaced with a perfectly accurate intra-ocular lens that corrects ALL of one’s nearsightedness, farsightedness, AND astigmatism. Sometimes, particularly in those with dense cataracts, and/or those who have previously undergone some sort of vision correction surgery (e.g., LASIK/PRK/RK), this lens calculation may be less accurate. This will lead to the need for additional procedures to correct one’s vision and get them out of glasses. The ORA with the VerifEye+ Technology calculates the exact lens power DURING surgery, and allows for the placement of the exact powered lens required to get people out of glasses. This provides for a much better (immediate) outcome, and minimizes the need for additional unnecessary touchups. We are proud to announce that this technology is also available in-house at the Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Centers.
Premium Intra-ocular Lens Technology:
Trifocal & Extended Depth of Focus Lens Implantation
See near, far, and everything in between without glasses-day and night!
The multi-focal intra-ocular lens technology has gone through multiple advances for the past two decades. Today, with the availability of the newest Trifocal & Extended Depth of Focus Lenses, Dr. Soroudi is able to provide his patients with outstanding far, near, AND intermediate vision, minimizing the need for glasses for life! Dr. Soroudi has implanted literally thousands of these lenses in his patients’ eyes, and he is considered one of the most experienced surgeons in the country specializing in multi-focal lens technology.
In cases where people don’t qualify for LASIK (very high prescriptions (over -11 Diopters of nearsightedness) or very thin Corneas), Dr. Soroudi offers his patients with the safety and accuracy of the Visian Implantable Contact Lens Technology. The Vision ICL is a paper-thin, clear collamer lens that can be placed in the eye in a matter of a few minutes with minimal sedation, and without the need for any sutures. Aside from treating up to -20 Diopters of nearsightedness, the Visian ICLs even treat up to 4 Diopters of Astigmatism.This technology has been approved by the FDA since 1995, and since then, thousands of people with very high myopia have enjoyed clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses whatsoever. Visian ICL Implants are an incredible alternative to LASIK Surgery, and they allow for outstanding visual acuities without causing any dry eyes.
Corneal Surgery: Keratoconus Treatment with Intacs, Collagen Crosslinking, PRK and Corneal Transplantation
“cone-shaped eye” in a patient with Keratoconus
Nearly one out of every 2,000 people worldwide suffers from thin, “irregular” corneas, causing extremely poor vision. These, usually very young, individuals unfortunately do not qualify for laser vision correction and resort to wearing thick glasses and uncomfortable, rigid contact lenses.
Dr. Soroudi is a renowned expert in treating Keratoconus, and he has successfully treated literally hundreds of patients with this devastating condition. He uses his expertise as both a Corneal Surgeon AND a Lens Surgeon to customize his treatments to best fit his patients’ individual needs.
Intacs Corneal Implants
Intacs are FDA-approved, 0.45mm plastic ring implants that can be placed inside the cornea to flatten it and return it to its “regular” shape. Dr. Soroudi performs this delicate procedure in his own eye specialty surgical centers using the brand new Z8 Femtosecond Laser. This procedure takes about 15-20 minutes under topical anesthesia.
Corneal collagen cross-linking is a procedure which uses UV light and a photosensitizer to strengthen chemical bonds in the cornea. The goal of the treatment is to halt progressive and irregular changes in corneal shape known as ectasia. These ectatic changes are typically marked by corneal thinning and an increase in the anterior and/or posterior curvatures of the cornea, and often lead to high levels of myopia and severe astigmatism. The most common form of ectasia is keratoconus and less often ectasia is seen after laser vision correction such as LASIK. Dr. Soroudi possesses the most advanced PXL Platinum Cross-linking unit with eye-tracking technology to provide his patients with the absolute BEST in Keratoconus treatment found anywhere in the world.
