About Us

Dr. Tinoosh has been recognized as one of America’s Top Ophthalmologists by the Consumers’ Research Council of America. Furthermore, Dr. Tinoosh was awarded the Centurion Surgeon and Quality of Vision award for his superior quality and expertise in the refractive surgery field. The Orange County Register’s public opinion poll rated his Orange County office #1, five years in a row. He is also a special certified surgeon, performing the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser treatment on his patients. This procedure reshapes the cornea to address both lower and higher order aberrations; therefore he treats more than just one prescription. The main goal in using the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser is to give patients the highest quality of vision possible. This is done by the EX500’s built-in flexibility to expand the surgeons refractive capabilities.

One of the most experienced ophthalmologists in California specializing in refractive surgery, Dr. Tinoosh has performed over 40,000 procedures and his main focus is the quality of his results rather than the quantity of procedures. In fact, only about 1.5% of his patients require a secondary or post-treatment. Dr. Tinoosh’s low re-treatment data and technique have been published in the Medical Journal, Ocular Surgery News in March 2006 National publication. He credits his impeccable results in the refractive surgery field to his technique, experience, special care for his patients, and use of the most advanced FDA approved technology available today.

Being in the medical field myself , I was fully pleased to see the office , the staff. and Dr. Tinoosh all compliant with the Covid precautions. The office is bright, airy and clean. The staff are courteous ,pleasant and attentive. They made me feel at ease as soon as I walked in. It's very convenient that you can order your eyeglasses right in there. My pair of eyeglasses were ready earlier than the estimated date of delivery. Overall it was a pleasant eye exam.

THIS WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Dr. Tinoosh and his staff are very professional, caring and knowledgeable. They treated my mom like family, and this is so important when undergoing a procedure that you're nervous about. Dr. Tinoosh took his time to examine my mom’s eyes and prioritized all her issues and planed for multiple surgeries in next few months. He went over all options and recommended what is the best way to address her Cataracts problem in the most cost-effective way. We are greatly apricate Dr. Tinoosh’s help and professionalism. Thank you.

What can I say, that hasn’t already been said? Except that no doctor is perfect as they ‘practice’ medicine. However, Dr. Tinoosh comes pretty darn close and is in a league of his own. He knows his medicine, and he practices it with care and genuine concern for his patients. Honestly, Dr. Tinoosh and his staff are the best I’ve experienced. You won’t regret trusting your eyes to him and his staff. Go SEE him:)!

Dr. Tinoosh performed LASIK surgery for my 19-year-old son, who had bad vision from the time he was a 5 year-old boy, wearing glasses for 14 years. Dr. Tinoosh is a truly-amazing miracle-worker! He fixed my son's eyes in 12 minutes, and now he can see better than me 20/15, even though my vision is very good 20/20. We are very deeply-grateful to Dr. Tinoosh for his incredible and amazing work & talent, and for my son's pristine, immaculate, and epic vision! Dr. Tinoosh is highly-skilled, very professional person, kind, compassionate, polite, with excellent bedside manners, 40,000+ successful eye surgeries performed, and 22 years of professional work experience. Dr. Tinoosh maintains a very fit and healthy lifestyle to keep his fabulous magic hands strong and steady, but gentle. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with their eyes - you will be in great hands!

Dr. Tinoosh is an excellent doctor. When I needed cataract surgery in 2013, Dr. Tinoosh was referred to me by both my Ophthalmologist and Retinal Specialist because of his high precision in performing the surgery. My cataract surgery was very successful, and I continue to see Dr. Tinoosh for annual checkups. I would highly recommend Dr. Tinoosh. I fully trust his judgement in evaluating the health of my eyes.

من يكي از بيماران مبتلا به كاتراك شديد بودم كه ساليان زيادي با اين بيماري مواجه بودم و چون در كاليفرنيا زندگي ميكردم و كار من ارتباط مستقيم با ديد چشم بود از اين رو هم در زندگي عادي و هم در درامد شغلي من تاثير زيادي داشت و تا قبل از مراجعه به دكتر طينوش به چندين دكتر چشم پزشك ديگر مراجعه كردم و همه انها به دليل هاي مختلف مرا معطل مي كردند و وقتي دليل را مي پرسيدم به من مشكل قبول نكردن وكاور نكردن ان را عنوان مي كردند وزماني كه به اداره بيمه مراجعه مي كردم انها به من مي گفتند شما از نظر بيمه هيچ مشكلي نداريد و وقتي دوباره به همان دكتر مراجعه مي كردم موضوع را عوض مي كردند و مشكل را كلينيك اعلام مي كردند و يا عناوين ديگر ،خلاصه كم كم داشتم نا اميد و سرد مي شدم كه اتفاقي تبليغ مجله ايي را مي ديدم كه با اگهي دكتر فرنوش طينوش مواجه شدم و قتي تماس گرفتم و وقت اپويتمنت گرفتم در ظرف چند روز به من وقت دادند و زماني كه مراجعه كردم با كادر دفتري بسيار مهربان و خوش برخورد و فارسي زبان روبرو شدم و متوجه شدم كه كليه لوازم معاينه و أفيس از مراتب بالايي مي باشد و بهترين ازمايشات و معاينات اوليه را انجام دادند و زماني كه با دكتر برخورد كردم ديدم دكتر با اينكه جوان و خنده رو و خوش برخورد مي باشد در اسرع وقت براي من وقت عمل ليزر بدون بخيه انجام داد و بعد از دو ماه ان چشمم را..و مرتب كادر انجا براي معاينات بعد از عمل پيگير مي شدند من از بيست سالگي هم مشكل استيگمات و هم ضعيف بودن چشم را داشتم و تا بحال كه شصت سالم هست هميشه عينك استفاده مي كردم و بدون عينك قدمي را نمي توانستم بردارم ولي ايشان بر خلاف پزشكان ديگر كه توصيه مي كردند در موقع عمل با هزينه بالا و جدا برايتان لنز گذاشته تا ديگر احتياج به عينك نداشته باشيد ايشان انجام داد بدون گرفتن يك سنت و الان چشمام از ديد فوق العاده ايي برخوردار هست بدين وسيله ميخواستم از دكتر طينوش تشكر كرده و به كساني كه با اين مشكل مواجه هستند تجربه خودم را آرائه بدم

Dr. Tinoosh is a fabulous doctor, he knows his subject matter very well and is definitely in the top of his field.

I couldn't recommend getting LASIK with Dr. Tinoosh enough. I have been extremely near-sighted my entire life with heavy astigmatism and now, post-op, every day is a miracle.Dr. Farnoosh was very professional and reassuring through the entire process. He has done over 40k surgeries and his touch-up rate is something like 1.4%. He has the kindest staff, uses the latest technology and conducts his surgeries in a center that feels more like a spa. I saw (pun intended) results immediately and was at work the very next day.The reviews speak for themselves - getting LASIK with this doctor is the best decision you'll ever make.

Dr. Tinoosh is by far the most knowledgeable Ophthalmologist I've ever known, and he takes a genuine interest with every situation I've brought to him. He takes time to listen and explain his well thought out and precise diagnosis.I had my laser surgery performed by Dr. Tinoosh back in 2000, which changed my life immeasurably! At my first surgery appointment, Dr. Tinoosh saw something that concerned him and he sent me to a Cornea specialist at Cedars-Sinai. They had to approve that nothing was wrong with my cornea before Dr. Tinoosh would perform the laser surgery. He cared more about my eye than he did about performing another procedure!I was lucky enough to find Dr. Tinoosh again when I started needing close-up vision help. Again, Dr. Tinoosh would not just perform a surgery. When it is the right option for me, Dr. Tinoosh will be my surgeon.I have brought my 86 year old mother to Dr. Tinoosh, as well, who has a very rare condition in her eye and Dr. Tinoosh knew exactly what to do for it and has improved her vision and "sick eye" better than any other Ophthalmologist ever has! He listens to my mom and is so very patient if she doesn't understand and asks questions, or simply cannot hear; he will repeat himself or explain it another way.The most recent patient I brought to Dr. Tinoosh is my 11 year old son, who had also been diagnosed with a rare condition. Dr. Tinoosh took it upon himself to research this more subjective diagnosis and personally called me to tell me everything he had learned and gave me additional options, but reassured me that my son would not be hurt by pursuing that path.Dr. Tinoosh is an incredible doctor and surgeon! My family will never go anywhere else! Thank you , Dr. Tinoosh!

Dr. Farnoosh Tinoosh is the best Ophthalmologist you will ever find. I went to several other doctors before I found Dr. Tinoosh. They wasted my time and money by not providing the correct Rx for my eyes. I was so upset and then finally Dr. Tinoosh did what the others could not and that was GET IT RIGHT and now I can SEE! He is friendly and makes your office visit very comfortable. Don't waste your time and go to the BEST first, and that is Dr. Farnoosh Tinoosh, MD

Dr. Tinoosh was awarded the Centurion Surgeon and Quality of Vision award for his superior quality and expertise in the refractive surgery field.

Dr. Tinoosh completed his residency at the prestigious Kresge Eye Institute in Michigan where he refined his surgical and medical skills. He attended medical school at Wayne State University, School of Medicine in Michigan and completed an internship at the Detroit Medical Center. Further, Dr. Tinoosh has published several medical publications and abstracts over the years. He has also given lectures on refractive surgery nationally and abroad to other physicians.

Dr. Tinoosh has successfully completed and received several certifications, such as the Nidek and VISX Excimer Laser Systems. In addition, he has extensive experience with the Amadeus, Nidek, Haqnsatome and Moria Microkeratomes. Dr. Tinoosh has received certification on the Verisyse Phakic Intraocular Lens System; this system is for patients who do not qualify for LASIK. Furthermore, he has received certification for Conductive Keratoplasty (CK): a procedure that corrects near vision giving patients freedom from reading glasses.

Dr. Tinoosh is one of the first refractive surgeons in California to become a special certified surgeon and to perform the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser treatment on his patients. This procedure reshapes the cornea to address both lower and higher order aberrations; therefore, he treats more than just one prescription. The main goal in using WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser treatment is to give patients the highest quality of vision possible.
