About The Vanguard Eye Institute - Santa Monica Office

The Vanguard Eye Institute is a premier facility for everything eye-related, offering a range of services to patients seeking to improve their vision. Led by board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Will Christian, The Vanguard Eye Institute utilizes cutting-edge surgical procedures to address almost any visual disturbance. Whether patients are in their 20s, 30s, or 40s and in need of LASIK, PRK, or ICL, or in their 50s or 60s and frustrated with reading glasses, Dr. Christian will customize the appropriate procedure to address their needs.

One of the most popular procedures offered by the Institute is modern-day cataract surgery, which is quick, painless, and lasts a lifetime. Due to recent, revolutionary advancements in cataract surgery, such as the femtosecond laser technology to perform the surgery, the extended-depth of focus lens implant to attain clear vision at all distances, and intraoperative aberrometry for astigmatism measurement and correction, many people are now electing to have "cataract surgery" in their 50s and 60s before the onset of visual degradation. The Vanguard Eye Institute also offers LASIK surgery, which is approved by NASA and the US Military to optimize the eyesight of astronauts and pilots.

In addition to these procedures, the Vanguard Eye Institute offers refractive lens exchange, which is a highly precise method of replacing the lens of the eye with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL), and PRK, which is a laser eye surgery that is very similar to LASIK. Dr. Christian's expertise also allows him to, in most cases, halt the degradation and clouding of one's vision caused by conditions such as glaucoma.

The Vanguard Eye Institute serves patients in Santa Monica and Los Angeles and is known for its friendly and informative approach. Dr. Christian has helped over 2,500 people per year improve their vision through LASIK and is frequently called upon to lecture, consult, and educate other doctors in his innovative techniques. Patients seeking a permanent solution for their vision issues can visit the Institute's Santa Monica location or its Los Angeles location.
