Laser Eye Surgeons

We partner with leading eye surgeons to provide seamless care through the full process of evaluation, pre-op, and post-op care for those patients who choose laser correction vision such as LASIK.

Saddleback Eye Center

Charles Manger III, M.D.

Since founding Saddleback Eye Center in 1980, Dr. Charles Manger has performed more than 70,000 LASIK procedures in their accredited state-of-the-art facility in Orange County. Dr. Manger is ranked in the top 1% of LASIK surgeons in the United States, according to industry experts. Dr. Manger developed the most comprehensive diagnostic exam process in the industry, a 14-test series of exams that forms the backbone for producing the outstanding results for which he is known. Dr. Manger has personally had refractive surgery to correct his own nearsightedness, so he knows firsthand just how life-changing the results can be.

Unlike most other LASIK surgeons, he does not take a “one size fits all approach” with laser technology — he is one of a select few of LASIK surgeons on the West Coast to have both the VISX Star 4 with Iris Registration and the Allegretto Wavelight side by side in the laser suite. This allows Dr. Manger to provide the best laser treatment for each individual patient. All-Laser Custom LASIK at Saddleback Eye Center is 100% blade-free, 100% all-laser and 100% personalized just for you.

NVISION Laser Eye Centers

Since 1999, NVISION has been the choice of more than 250 Southern California eye doctors for their own eyes and 1300 of their patients who need LASIK. That’s a claim no other LASIK Center in Southern California can make. And that is why NVISION is called “The Eye Doctors’ #1 Choice.”

Tom Tooma, M.D.

Dr. Tom Tooma, Founder and Medical Director of NVISION Laser Eye Centers (formerly a part of TLC Laser Eye Centers) has performed more than 100,000 LASIK procedures, including procedures on more than 250 eye doctors. Dr. Tooma has many firsts including being the first in California to perform LASIK surgery, first to perform Custom Wavefront Guided LASIK, and first in the U.S. to use the Femtosecond Laser (IntraLase FS30 – All Laser LASIK). Dr. Tooma has held positions at Loma Linda University as Chief and Director of Cornea Service and Director of Refractive Surgery.
