Dr. Tooma's passion is to deliver life changing outcomes combined with the best patient experience anyone can have in a medical setting. He has performed LASIK surgery on hundreds of optometrists and ophthalmologists. He firmly believes that the combination of experience and technology gives his patients the safest, most predictable surgical outcomes possible in the world.

Dr. Tooma has been a principal investigator in the field of Laser Vision Correction. He has participated in multiple FDA clinical trials to approve Excimer Laser Technology in the United States. He has many firsts, including the first LASIK surgery in California, the first to use the FS30 Femtosecond Laser (bladeless, all laser LASIK) in LASIK surgery, the first KAMRA Inlay for presbyopia (need for reading glasses).

Dr. Tooma completed his medical degree, his internship in Internal Medicine and his ophthalmology residency at Loma Linda University. He then completed a fellowship in Corneal Surgery and Refractive Surgery at Emory University Department of Ophthalmology. He initially served in both private practice and academic practice performing complex anterior segment reconstruction surgeries. In 1995, he decided to dedicate his career to Refractive and Laser Vision Correction Surgery. For Dr. Tooma, helping patients achieve their vision goals is his passion. “I feel privileged and blessed to participate in what is a life-changing experience for my patients.”

Dr. Tooma and his wife, Marta Tooma, DDS, through the Tooma Family Foundation, built a mission in Fiji, The Mission at Natuvu Creek, to offer free medical and surgical care to the Fijian people.
