Since 1948, patients from throughout the greater Los Angeles area have found cutting-edge eye care at the Santa Monica Eye Medical Group, located in Santa Monica, California. The practice’s founders, John E. Gilmore, MD, and Donald E. Dickerson, MD, developed the very first course in cataract intraocular lens surgery. Currently led by Dr. Sadiqa Stelzner, associate professor at UCLA, the doctors at the practice offer not only state-of-the-art eye care ranging from advanced surgical procedures including laser refractive surgery (LASIK), refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery (ReLACS), and micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) and exams for glasses and contact lenses. We also specialize in a variety of aesthetic treatments to address scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and melasma using laser and IPL treatments with Cynosure technology including PicoSure and TempSure. Patients also can book appointments for Botox and filler treatments as well as eyelid surgery.
Today, Dr. Stelzner and her colleagues offer state-of-the-art treatments and compassionate patient care. They understand that the gift of sight changes lives, so they take the time to get to know their patients, listening to their concerns and experiences while also providing excellent care and medical treatment.
