San Diego, CA — The Gordon & Weiss Vision Institute has announced it will be welcoming Dr. David Schanzlin to form the Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute and continue providing procedures in vision correction in San Diego ranging from LASIK and cataract surgery to refractive lens exchange. Drs. Michael Gordon, Jack Weiss, and David Schanzlin say they are excited about the partnership and are confident the new name will continue to stand for the highest quality results and patient care for LASIK and cataract surgery in San Diego.
Formerly the Director of Keratorefractive Surgery at the University of California, San Diego Shiley Eye Center, Dr. Schanzlin has performed over 20,000 refractive procedures in over 26 years as a refractive surgeon and has developed a number of new technologies including Intacs, the excimer laser used in LASIK, and the Femtosecond technology used for bladeless LASIK flap creation. Drs. Gordon and Weiss say Dr. Schanzlin’s experience helps round out their team of LASIK surgeons in San Diego to offer patients a wide variety of vision procedures backed by extensive credentials. They say the new transformations taking place at the Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute are a welcome change that should help complement the strengths of their existing organization. “Being a part of Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision institute provides access to some of the world’s best technology and the opportunity to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients,” says Dr. Schanzlin.
The Gordon Weiss Vision Institute, founded in 1993, was the first practice to perform LASIK surgery in San Diego. In the past 30 years, its surgeons have completed over 45,000 refractive procedures. Doctors with the Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute have all been trained as Corneal Specialists and Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Drs. Gordon, Weiss, and Schanzlin say they look forward to the opportunity to expand their efforts in vision correction and refractive surgery.
Throughout the transition of changing names and adding personnel, Drs. Gordon, Weiss, and Schanzlin say they hope to continue providing the utmost patient care and satisfaction. With a diverse array of advanced medical devices and eye surgery technology, the doctors say they are grateful to have the tools and talents to pursue the best results for their patients. According to Dr. Gordon, he believes the addition of Dr. Schanzlin will improve the practice as a whole. “Dr. Schanzlin’s extensive research and clinical background complements the expertise and commitment to excellent surgical outcomes we have always strived for in our practice.”
