You're in good hands with Yichieh "E.J." Shiuey, M.D., an ophthalmologist at Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Dr. Shiuey is one of a few surgeons performing laser vision correction to receive formal fellowship training in both refractive surgery (to correct focusing errors in the eye) and the cornea (the clear covering of the eye on which all laser vision correction procedures are performed).
Harvard awarded Dr. Shiuey its prestigious Heed Fellowship to pursue advanced clinical and research training in laser vision correction and corneal surgery at the Moran Vision Center of the University of Utah, one of the world's premier institutions for eye surgery.
A frequent lecturer on the subject of laser vision correction at national meetings, Dr. Shiuey has authored more than 50 scientific journal articles and book chapters. A board certified ophthalmologist, he scored in the top 1 percent of all ophthalmologists nationwide who have taken the board certification exam.
To learn more about LASIK or any of the procedures performed at the PAMF Munnerlyn Eye Institute, please call 408-524-5900.
"I have used the Palo Alto Medical Foundation as my primary care facility for five years. After reading Dr. Shiuey's information, I decided he was the one for me, and I can highly recommend him for this procedure.... LASIK surgery was a very emotional experience for me. I have never been able to see as well as others. I feel I can do everything in my life better. My husband and I backpack in the Sierras a lot, and now I don't have to carry contacts, solution and extra glasses. No more worrying about bears in the middle of the night and not being able to see."
—Alisha H. Kage, Wildlife Biologist
"The entire experience, from initial consultation to my one-year check up was extremely positive. Dr. Shiuey and his staff take time to educate patients, answer all questions and have a very thorough follow-up program. It doesn't get much better than Dr. Shiuey. The Harvard, top 1 percent, well-known expert he is! I can see clearly now 24/7."
"I wore contact lenses for 25 years, and my eyes were often dry and easily irritated. Now that's gone. I recently went skiing for the first time in 30 years without glasses. What a pleasure!"
—Stuart Menaker, M.D., Family Practice Physician
"Our lives are so busy. It’s one less hassle if you don't have to deal with glasses or contact lenses. My only regret is I didn't choose LASIK sooner."
—Kay Morrison, M.D., Occupational Medicine Physician
Dr. Shiuey enjoys developing new corneal surgical techniques, spending time with his family and playing tennis.
