Dr. Macy is a great doctor. He’s been my family’s eye doctor for decades. He’s taken good care of my entire family. My Grandmother loved him and she rarely liked any doctors but he has such a wonderful manner and is so intelligent and caring that it was impossible for her not to adore him. I highly recommend him.View On Google
Why Choose an Ophthalmologist?
You may be wondering why you should choose an ophthalmologist over an optometrist for your vision care needs in Los Angeles, CA. The main reason is simple: an optometrist is not a medical doctor. While an optometrist can help you with glasses and contact lenses, they cannot diagnose diseases that impact your eyesight. An optometrist also cannot perform surgical treatments that can correct eye conditions and improve your vision.
On the other hand, an ophthalmologist is a trained medical doctor who can diagnose and treat conditions related to the eye, including very serious eye diseases like glaucoma. An ophthalmologist can provide all of the same services as an optometrist and then take your vision care to the next level.
When choosing an ophthalmologist, why not choose the best? Dr. Macy is a renowned, board-certified ophthalmologist who can help patients in Los Angeles, CA, achieve the clear eyesight they deserve.
If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, LASIK eye surgery can reduce or eliminate your need for corrective lenses. For patients that qualify, LASIK offers dramatically improved eyesight with near-immediate results. Through LASIK at our Los Angeles practice, our ophthalmologist can help you say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses.
All eyeglasses and contact lenses from our Los Angeles, CA, ophthalmologist are crafted specifically for our patient's needs, and they can include UV filtering to help protect your eyes. Corrective lenses from our office are constructed to the strictest standards that cannot be matched by mail-order alternatives.
Cataracts affect over a quarter of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 and half of those over the age of 75. Cataract surgery can replace a clouded lens with an intraocular lens (IOL), which is a flexible plastic that will never cloud. Dr. Macy is a recognized expert in laser cataract surgery.
We offer several types of IOLs to patients undergoing cataract surgery. Our options include traditional IOLs, Toric IOLs for patients with astigmatism, and AcySof® ReSTOR and Cystalens IOLs for patients with presbyopia. Depending on your unique vision-correction needs, Dr. Macy will recommend the right lens to give you clearer eyesight.

Dr. Macy performed my Lasik procedure over twenty years ago. I just had my eyes routinely checked today and my distance vision is still 20/15. After age 50 I've needed readers, but I knew that was to be expected. I'm very grateful for this wonderful gift of eye sight. Thank you Dr. Macy!View On Google
