Gregg Feinerman, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Gregg Feinerman, MD, FACS is a board-certified and fellowship trained LASIK surgeon with a thriving Orange County practice in Newport Beach. He completed his ophthalmology training at the University of California, Irvine in June of 1998. After residency training, Dr. Feinerman completed a refractive surgery fellowship at the internationally recognized Gimbel Eye Center. There, he was trained in advanced ocular surgical techniques (LASIK, PRK, Intacs® corneal ring segments, phakic intraocular lenses, refractive lensectomy, cataract surgery, and AK). Dr. Gregg Feinerman has performed numerous advanced refractive techniques to treat myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, using technology that is still currently limited to clinical trials in the United States.
As a highly respected cataract and LASIK surgeon serving Newport Beach and surrounding Orange County communities, Dr Feinerman has published in several peer-reviewed journals and contributed to books on both subjects. His paper entitled “Safety and Efficacy of Simultaneous Bilateral LASIK” was published in the August 1999 issue of Ophthalmology. Many consider this article a landmark study in ophthalmology because it proves LASIK can be done safely on both eyes the same day.
In addition to having his work published in medical journals, Dr. Gregg Feinerman recently contributed chapters to several best-selling textbooks including Refractive Surgery – A Manual of Principles and Practice; Wavefront Analysis, Aberrometers, & Corneal Topography; and LASIK & Beyond LASIK – Wavefront Analysis & Customized Ablation. These books teach eye surgeons on the proper methods of caring for their patients and have been read by physicians all over the world.
Dr. Gregg Feinerman is part of an elite group of LASIK surgeons investigating surgical techniques to correct visual errors that result in a reliance on reading glasses for near vision. He is a contributing author to the book entitled Presbyopia: A Surgical Textbook, which was released in 2002. The book instructs LASIK surgeons on the new surgery to correct presbyopia and thereby allow patients to read without reading glasses.
Dr. Feinerman is a member of the scientific advisory board for Bausch & Lomb, manufacturer of Crystalens™. He also served as a certified clinical instructor for Nidek, Inc., manufacturer of the Nidek laser. Dr. Feinerman frequently travels around the U.S. training physicians on both Crystalens™ and laser refractive surgery.
He is also an associate clinical professor at USC in the Department of Ophthalmology. Dr. Feinerman is very proud to be teaching eye surgery at University of Southern California.
More than anything else, Dr. Feinerman feels that the best way to measure his success as a Orange County LASIK and cataract surgeon is by the satisfaction of each of his Orange County area patients.
