For over 14 years, Dr. Lin has successfully performed more than 25,000 refractive procedures.

Over 7 million people in the United States have undergone LASIK and experienced the freedom from their dependency on glasses, contact lenses or both! LASIK utilizes a computer controlled ultraviolet light beam, called an Excimer Laser to change the shape of the cornea, and is effective for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Even patients over 40 years old, who have difficulty reading, often do not need glasses or contact lenses after LASIK. The procedure is virtually painless, taking only minutes to perform, and most patients return to work the next day. Dr. Lin has performed refractive procedures on hundreds of celebrities, doctors, the Center’s staff members and his own family. His parents who are almost in their 70s are able to see well both near and far without the use of glasses. More importantly, Dr. Lin is able to relate to each and every patient’s concerns and excitement that is part of the vision correction process, since he is a LASIK patient himself. Dr. Lin underwent the LASIK procedure over 14 years ago and continues to enjoy 20/20 vision. He is confident in the effectiveness of the LASIK procedure and is excited to offer this life changing procedure.
Devoted full time to refractive surgery, Dr. Lin is a pioneer in ultra-thin flap LASIK (MICRO-LASIK®, Trademark #2681144, U.S. Patent Office) and LASEK. He has been featured on nationally televised shows, such as Health Watch to discuss the advantages of the MICRO-LASIK® procedure, which is a tissue-conserving technique that results in less dry eyes, decreased weakening of the cornea, and offers more available treatment options to patients. The unique Micro-LASIK® technique enables more patients to safely undergo the Wavefront procedure, decreasing chances of glare or halos at night. In many cases the procedure can improve an individual’s vision to a level better than with the use of glasses or contact lenses.
Dr. Lin is a leader in refractive surgery, enabling him to offer the latest and most advanced vision enhancing options, including All-Laser Lasik, and Refractive Cataract Surgery that allow patients to see well both near and far, Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) for extremely high nearsightedness, Intacs Corneal Rings for Keratoconus, and FDA approved Ortho-K contact lenses that slow progression of nearsightedness in children. Dr. Lin will recommend what is best for patients, and often advises patients not to undergo any procedures if they are not good candidates.
Dr. Lin received his undergraduate education from UC Berkeley and medical training at UCLA. He completed his residency in ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA, one of the world’s most preeminent programs, where he is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor. As well as being a board-certified ophthalmologist, the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance (CRSQA) has distinguished Dr. Robert Lin as one of few CRSQA Certified Refractive Surgeons in the United States. He is also named, “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” by the Consumer’s Research Council of America. Dr. Lin continues his work as a consultant to other eye surgeons who need assistance with challenging cases or to patients that need further improvement with their vision. Dr. Lin also acts as a mentor, training students and doctors in refractive surgery procedures and certifies LASIK surgeons. Dr. Robert T. Lin continues to dedicate himself to the development of refractive surgery, publishing numerous scientific papers in ophthalmology and contributing his time to participate at various speaking engagements and lectures around the world.
