Universal Vision Medical Center



Farnoosh Tinoosh, MD, is an experienced, fellowship-trained refractive surgeon at Universal Vision Medical Center in Costa Mesa, California. Specializing in refractive surgery, Dr. Tinoosh is one of the most experienced ophthalmologists in California, having performed over 40,000 procedures.

Dr. Tinoosh has performed thousands of laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK and refractive intraocular implants. As a highly skilled surgeon, Dr. Tinoosh also performs eyelid surgery and has extensive experience with issues related to glaucoma, cataract surgery, and diabetic eye exams. He also performs all routine eye evaluations, as well as any other diagnostic tests recommended by your primary care physician.

He attended medical school at Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, and completed an internship at Detroit Medical Center. Dr. Tinoosh completed his residency at the prestigious Kresge Eye Institute in Michigan, where he refined his surgical and medical skills. 

Over the years, Dr. Tinoosh has authored several medical publications and abstracts. He has also given lectures on refractive surgery nationally and overseas, and received several awards for his research. 

He is also one of the first refractive surgeons in California to use advanced technology, such as the Wavefront excimer laser, and perform the wavefront-optimized treatments on his patients. Dr. Tinoosh has successfully completed several certifications, such as those for the Nidek and VISX Excimer Laser Systems, the Verisyse™ phakic intraocular lens system for patients who do not qualify for LASIK, and Conductive Keratoplasty (CK), a procedure that corrects near vision so people can see without glasses. Trust is important when it comes to treating your eyes, and that’s why Dr. Tinoosh has performed LASIK on several family members, as well as other optometrists and eye surgeons.

Dr. Tinoosh credits his impeccable results in refractive surgery to his technique, experience, special care for his patients, and the use of the most advanced FDA-approved technology available. The Orange County Register’s public opinion poll voted his previous LASIK center No. 1 for five years in a row. Dr. Tinoosh was awarded the Centurion Surgeon and Quality of Vision, as well as the Esteemed Centurion Surgeon Award by Alcon for his superior quality and expertise in refractive surgery.
