This content was provided by Dr. Fahd "Dr. Antoine Fahd has been a leader in the refractive surgery industry for over 10 years. His journey into the field of medicine is somewhat unique in that he is the only refractive surgeon in California to hold an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering (graduating Summa Cum Laude) and a doctorate with an emphasis in lasers and medicine. During his graduate work, Dr. Fahd worked as an investigator with NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This combined experience in engineering and medicine has allowed Dr. Fahd to provide the best surgical quality and care for his patients: less than 1 percent of his LASIK patients have needed further surgery (“touch-ups”) following the original LASIK procedure. The industry average for touch-ups is 10 percent. Dr. Fahd graduated from medical school in the top 5 percent of his class and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society. He completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of California, Irvine, followed by a refractive surgery fellowship specializing in laser vision correction. Dr. Fahd has successfully performed over 65,000 LASIK procedures using the latest FDA-approved technologies. These include: • Allegretto 400 Eye Q Wave • VISX™ CustomVue Laser System • Ladar Wavefront/Custom Cornea® System • Intralase All-Laser LASIK • Nidek Excimer Laser System • Amadeus®, Nidek and Moria • Conductive Keratoplasty (CK®) used for treatment of presbyopia (reading glasses) • Microkeratome Systems Dr. Fahd has received several awards in recognition of his outstanding achievements in refractive surgery: • He was the first surgeon in Southern California to be awarded the Centurion Surgeon and Quality of Vision Award for his superior LASIK surgical skills. • He is listed in Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, a publication that recognizes doctors for high achievement. • An independent national study showed that Dr. Fahd has one of the lowest number of LASIK enhancements (touch-ups) following the original procedure – 1 percent as compared to the industry average of 10 percent. • He was one of the first surgeons in Southern California to perform wavefront LASIK on his patients. He has performed this procedure on his wife, who is now free of glasses and is seeing better than 20/20. • Dr Fahd’s previous LASIK practice in Orange County was voted #1 for five years in a row by a public opinion poll conducted by the Orange County Register. For those individuals who are not LASIK candidates, Dr. Fahd uses implantable contact lenses (ICLs) to help them see without glasses. He was among the first few surgeons selected in California to use ICLs (STAAR Visian™ and AMO Verisyse™ lenses). Dr. Fahd also performs state-of-the art lens implantation to help patients over 40 years old see far and close up without glasses using multifocal lenses (ReSTOR®, Crystalens, and Technis). In addition, Dr. Fahd performs no-stitch pterygium surgery using TISSEEL glue. He also performs facial cosmetic surgical procedures, including BOTOX® Cosmetics, no-stitch eyelid surgery and Skin Dermal fillings. To offer the utmost in patient care, Dr. Fahd has continued to study refractory technology. He has conducted several research projects, publications, and abstracts pertaining to excimer lasers and photoablation of human corneal tissues. On an academic level, Dr. Fahd has positioned himself as an educator in the field of refractive surgery. He holds a clinical faculty position at Long Beach Veterans Administration Hospital, where he assists new residents in the operating room as well as in the clinic. He is also on staff at Hoag Memorial Hospital, where he performs various intraocular procedures. Dr. Fahd is a trusted and respected surgeon known for his excellent care, expertise, and superior results. Many of his patients are referrals from as far away as Europe and the Far East.
