Why Maloney Vision Institute?
The Maloney Vision Institute was established in Los Angeles in 1998 by Dr. Robert Maloney, the first surgeon in western North America to perform LASIK surgery as part of the original FDA clinical trials. A clinical professor of ophthalmology at UCLA, Doctor Maloney has trained more than 1,000 surgeons in the use of the excimer laser and has personally performed more than 60,000 vision correction surgeries.
Since its inception, the Maloney Vision Institute has been a center for innovation and research in vision correction surgery. Its status as an FDA-authorized Study Center means that MVI surgeons examine, test and evaluate all of the latest technologies available for vision correction, so that when new advances are approved by the FDA, Dr. Maloney is already experienced in their use.
