    Dr. Uday Devgan is an outstanding cataract surgeon. Not only did he remove extremely thick and troublesome cataracts from both my eyes but because my eyes are extremely sensitive (severe myopia, history of retinal bleeding and even a scleral buckle on my right eye) his procedures were so flawless, painless and carried out with such passion and affection that I was in awe. After a lifetime of myopia and buildup of severe cataracts for the last 10 years I now enjoy 20-20 vision on both eyes !

    I recently had the LASIK procedure done from Dr. Devgan, and I could not have asked for a more perfect experience. Having worn glasses since the 4th grade and having suffered from high astigmatism my entire life, I am still marveling at the fact that I now have 20/20 vision. Dr. Devgan and his entire staff were absolutely professional, responsive, and unbelievably warm and supportive throughout the whole process, from the minute I walked in for my consultation to the minute I walked out with a

    I have been aware from some time that I should have cataract surgery in both eyes, but continued to put it off for quite some time – it is a daunting decision to let someone operate on your eyes, and the market is flooded by medical professionals touting their expertise, affordability, speed of procedure, and patient satisfaction. So much to wade through, but I realized my cataracts were starting to impact my quality of life – primarily not being able to drive at night, or identify details of

    Dr. Devgan performed my cataract surgery on February 6th, 2017. Before the surgery, I had a lot of questions. He was very patient, understanding, and down to earth. He took extra time to answer all of my questions. The cataract surgery went smoothly without much discomfort. My vision improved from -13 to 20/25. The whole world looks different. I recommend highly Dr. Devgan who is an excellent ophthalmologist.
    Riverside, CA |
    Dr. Devgan is an extremely skilled surgeon who patiently explains his diagnosis and his treatment recommendations; a rare combination. His staff are courteous and efficient, and his facilities are state-of-the-art. My original diagnosis was made by a local practitioner who seemed competent. However, after seeing Dr. Devgan, the difference in the quality of care was obvious. My procedure went flawlessly, the outcome was perfect, and I'll certainly be referring my friends and family to him.

    I work at the hospital in surgery department. When I wanted to have LASIK done, I asked my co-workers and doctors who is the best surgeon to do this procedure. They all said "Dr. Devgan!"

    I was referred to Dr. Devgan by a successful ophthalmologist in Canada. Dr. Devgan gave a talk in Canada and our ophthalmologist friend was very impressed by him. My experience of seeing Dr. Devgan was wonderful. He was kind, patient and very good at what he did. He took time to explain details of my cataract surgery, took time to answer our emails when we had questions. My right eye which had the surgery done recovered quickly and I did not experience pain afterwards. I am now enjoying my

    Nearly a year ago, Dr. Devgan performed cataract surgery on my right eye. Nothing speaks better for my total satisfaction with the results or my confidence in Dr. Devgan than the fact that just a week ago, I turned to him again for a similar procedure on my left eye. As before, everything went perfectly.
    in Santa Monica, CA |
    Dr Devgan and his staff always kept me thoroughly in the picture, with no surprises. So I cruised through two operations and post-op. This is the way it should be. I am totally happy with the results, too. I can identify tiny birds now at 40 paces!
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    I couldn't be more pleased with the result of my recent eye surgery. Dr. Devgan spent plenty of time with me at my pre-op consult. and patiently answered all of my questions (even the foolish ones). He told me exactly what to expect regarding the surgery and the recovery. My results exceeded his description (i.e. the surgery was a breeze, I could see GREAT 24 hours post surgery & my eye has felt fine and normal since day two). I was told beforehand that he is the best. I believe it!
    in Redondo Beach, CA |
    Dr. Devgan is fantastic...he is trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with and most important he truly has your best interests in mind. With his wealth of knowledge as a practicing Professor at UCLA combined with his years of hands on experience at his clinic, why would you entrust your precious eye surgery with just “any” eye surgeon? Dr. Devgan is quick to respond with detailed answers to any of your questions no matter how simple or complex and you can always count on ge

    My cataract surgery has given me amazing vision, taking me back to the eyesight of my 30's, with vibrant colors and great distance. Did I mention distance vision? My golf drives aren’t even close to my distant vision. I was very impressed with Doctor Devgan, his staff, facility, and the total process of preparation and patient handling from initial evaluation to pre- op, to surgery and follow-up. They are leading edge with technology and patient care.

    When I found the articles written by Dr. Uday Devgan and Associate Clinical Professor at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the UCLA School of Medicine, I knew he would be the doctor that I would trust to perform my surgery. Dr. Devgan confirmed that I had the rare “posterior polar congenital cataracts” in both eyes as well as cataracts in front of the eyes. Both surgeries were successful and at age 70, I NO LONGER NEED EYE GLASSES. Besides finding the greatest doctor, his staff is outstanding.

    After wearing glasses and contacts for 42 years, with a very strong prescription, I now have better than 20/20 vision. I was very nervous, but Dr. Devgan and his staff immediately put me at ease. The surgery was quick and painless and within hours, I was able to see like I never had before. After the first cataract removal and new lens, everything was so bright and vivid. I never dreamed vision like this would be a possibility for me. I highly recommend Dr. Devgan.
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    Dr Devgan is a miracle worker!! I spent 5 frustrating years trying to correct my vision. I couldn't wear contacts and I couldn't see well with or without my glasses. I had cataracts; however, several ophthalmologist told me they weren't ripe. A new ophthalmologist recommended Dr Devgan and I had cataract surgery on both eyes. With the new corrective lenses he put into my eyes I see everything far and near. I no longer where glasses and I only need 1.25 reading glasses for very very small pr

    Dr. Devgan did an amazing job of removing both of my cataracts and replacing the lenses with acrylic implants. He's easy to access online, a super friendly relaxed guy who asked me to call him by his first name and answers all emails, and is very passionate about his work.
