Our Doctors

Dr. Michael Gordon was the first surgeon in the United States to use the Summit excimer laser to correct nearsightedness, as well as the first surgeon to correct astigmatism and hyperopia with the patented Emphasis Erodible Mask. 

Together Dr. Gordon, Dr. Schanzlin, and Dr. Geffen, a national specialist on refractive surgery and co-management, are among the most experienced refractive teams in the world.  LASIK Surgeons from around the globe come to Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute in San Diego to learn the latest refractive eye surgery techniques. They continue to lead the way having performed the first Blade Free All Laser Custom Wavefront CustomCornea® procedure in the world, in January 2003.

Our eye surgeons are trained as Corneal Specialists and are Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Together with Dr. David Geffen, this team of doctors has successfully treated over 45,000 refractive patients.
