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.

Our Patients Say It Best

Dr. Tinoosh is phenomenal, I wish I would have found him sooner!I strongly recommend him to anyone trying to find a fantastic eye doctor.Based on my experience. I had dealt with a vision group before, that other group was Atlantis that now rebranded as Azul, who are just terrible at their job. The Azul group only would drag out appointments and misdiagnose, as well as over charge insurance and other patients. Just to name an example of how bad this other group was, they had misdiagnosed me by giving me glasses instead of seeing that I actually needed cataract surgery.I found this out once I visited Dr. Tinoosh, which I’m super glad I did. He set me up with all the procedures and I had pterygium removal, and cataract surgery with him. Now my vision is better than 20/20 at 20/15.When I say I wish I would have found him sooner is because I really wish I hadn’t wasted so much time with those other vision groups that don’t care about patients.Dr. Tinoosh really cares about his patients and goes above and beyond with his decades of experience and expertise.Just to highlight why he’s such a good doctor, a year back, I lost my right field of vision with a sudden migraine and I didn’t know what was going on. I went to the ER and got discharged after some tylenol. It didn’t feel right so I came to Dr. Tinoosh, and he wasted no time to give me a field vision test and came to a realization that I had right sided hemianopsia. He urgently warned me to go get diagnosed with neurology asap because it was a precursor to a possible stroke. Advised me to take baby aspirin to prevent things from getting worse. Not even the actual neurologist that I was seeing (Dr. Ignacio Carrillo Nuñez who is a failure as a neurologist.) saw my problem that Dr. Tinoosh was already foreseeing. I just couldn’t believe how knowledgeable Dr. Tinoosh is and how caring he really is for his patients.This is why I strongly and very highly recommend Dr. Farnoosh Tinoosh to anyone that needs a good eye doctor.

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
