Providing crystal clear vision to Sacramento, Roseville, Folsom, & nearby areas of California
Dr. Nilu Maboudi initially wanted to become a pediatrician; however, she met an ophthalmologist in a chance encounter who convinced her to give ophthalmology a try. She studied it for a month and fell in love, prompting her to enter into an ophthalmology residency. Since then, she's never looked back. Watch the video to hear her talk about her journey.
Watch Dr. Reed share his own personal story about hating the glasses he had to wear as a child, which led him to follow the developments of laser vision correction throughout the late 1980s and early 90s. When the technology and technique reached a level that could correct his severe astigmatism, Dr. Reed could undergo the procedure that has allowed him to see clearly without glasses for over twenty years.

She shares her experience in the video above.

Laser vision correction is a uniquely gratifying aspect of the medical field. It's one of few procedures that gives patients immediate, life-changing results.

Men and women who’ve had perfect distance and near vision their whole life, or who’ve had LASIK in the past, are accustomed to clear, crisp vision.

The KAMRA™ Inlay is an extremely thin lens implant that is inserted into your non-dominant eye to restore your near vision while maintaining your distance vision. Learn more from our eye...Read More

In these instances, we typically recommend doing a refractive lens exchange. Refractive lens exchange involves replacing your natural eye lens with a multifocal implant, which corrects vision like LASIK and prevents the need for cataract surgery later on...Read More
