Dr. Randal Pham
Dr. Randal Pham, MD, MS, FACS
Dr. Randal Pham, MD, MS, FACS, is a board-certified ophthalmologist treating cataracts in the Silicon Valley. At the Aesthetic & Refractive Surgery Medical Center, Dr. Pham and his team offer top-notch surgical care that includes the placement of premium intraocular lens (IOL) implants to improve vision. Under Dr. Pham's confident leadership, the entire team provides exceptional customer service in a warm, welcoming environment.
Dr. Pham, founder of Aesthetic & Refractive Surgery Medical Center, is the first surgeon in Northern California to implant the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® multifocal intraocular lens, allowing patients to see distance and near without glasses. Dr. Pham recently achieved a new milestone; he established Advanced Surgery Medical Center, the first training center for laser cataract refractive surgery in the Western United States utilizing the CATALYS® Precision Laser System from OptiMedica.
Dr. Pham performs state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery with premium IOL. He uses an advanced laser to make a tiny incision in the eye and directs the laser beam at the cataract-diseased lens. The laser energy gently breaks the lens into small pieces, and they are extracted from the eye. Then, Dr. Pham places a folded-up IOL through the same incision. He carefully positions it and unfolds it over the eye. Cataract surgery is a virtually painless procedure performed under topical anesthesia.
