Eye Surgery Specialists

Shammas Eye Medical Center is a comprehensive ophthalmology practice in Southern California under the supervision of Dr. H. John Shammas, M.D. Using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment, our skilled, Board certified ophthalmologists provide a range of services, including eye surgery, to help you attain the clearest vision possible.

In addition to complete eye examinations, we test for corneal and retinal health, perform advanced cataract surgery as well as surgery for glaucoma and diabetes, and treat conditions from dry eyes to macular degeneration.

We are specialists in “Advanced Cataract Surgery” where patients can decrease their dependence on glasses after cataract surgery. Two new intraocular lenses (implants) have revolutionized the surgery. The “Premium Toric Intraocular Lens” corrects pre-existing astigmatism (distortion) to allow clearer vision for distance, while the “Premium Bifocal Intraocular Lens” is specially designed to provide clearer vision for distance AND for reading.
