One of the most experienced ophthalmologists in California specializing in refractive surgery, Dr. Tinoosh has performed over 40,000 procedures and his main focus is the quality of his results rather than the quantity of procedures. In fact, only about 1.5% of his patients require a secondary or post-treatment. Dr. Tinoosh's low re-treatment data and technique have been published in the Medical Journal, Ocular Surgery News in March 2006 National publication. He credits his impeccable results in the refractive surgery field to his technique, experience, special care for his patients, and use of the most advanced FDA approved technology available today. 

Dr. Tinoosh completed his residency at the prestigious Kresge Eye Institute in Michigan where he refined his surgical and medical skills. He attended medical school at Wayne State University, School of Medicine in Michigan and completed an internship at the Detroit Medical Center. Further, Dr. Tinoosh has published several medical publications and abstracts over the years. He has also given lectures on refractive surgery nationally and abroad to other physicians. 

Dr. Tinoosh has successfully completed and received several certifications, such as the Nidek and VISX Excimer Laser Systems. In addition, he has extensive experience with the Amadeus, Nidek, Haqnsatome and Moria Microkeratomes. Dr. Tinoosh has received certification on the Verisyse Phakic Intraocular Lens System; this system is for patients who do not qualify for Lasik. Furthermore, he has received certification for Conductive Keratoplasty (CK): a procedure that corrects near vision giving patients freedom from reading glasses. 

Dr. Tinoosh is one of the first refractive surgeons in California to become a special certified surgeon and to perform the LADAR WAVEfront/ CUSTOM CORNEA treatment on his patients. This procedure reshapes the cornea to address both lower and higher order aberrations; therefore, he treats more than just one prescription. The main goal in using WAVEfront/ CUSTOM CORNEA treatment is to give patients the highest quality of vision possible.
