Dr. Macy is a great doctor. He’s been my family’s eye doctor for decades. He’s taken good care of my entire family. My Grandmother loved him and she rarely liked any doctors but he has such a wonderful manner and is so intelligent and caring that it was impossible for her not to adore him. I highly recommend him.

Featured Procedures


If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, LASIK eye surgery can reduce or eliminate your need for corrective lenses. For patients that qualify, LASIK offers dramatically improved eyesight with near-immediate results. Through LASIK at our Los Angeles practice, our ophthalmologist can help you say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses.


Eyeglasses & Contact Lenses

All eyeglasses and contact lenses from our Los Angeles, CA, ophthalmologist are crafted specifically for our patient's needs, and they can include UV filtering to help protect your eyes. Corrective lenses from our office are constructed to the strictest standards that cannot be matched by mail-order alternatives.

Glasses & Contact Lenses

Cataract Surgery

Cataracts affect over a quarter of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 and half of those over the age of 75. Cataract surgery can replace a clouded lens with an intraocular lens (IOL), which is a flexible plastic that will never cloud. Dr. Macy and Dr. Knezevic are recognized experts in laser cataract surgery.

Cataract Surgery


We offer several types of IOLs to patients undergoing cataract surgery. Our options include traditional IOLs, Toric IOLs for patients with astigmatism, and multifocal IOLs including AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL for patients with presbyopia. Whatever your unique vision-correction needs, our doctors will recommend the right lens to give you clearer eyesight.
