Laser Eye Surgery in Encino


One of the most used corrective vision surgeries, LASIK can reduce or even eliminate the need for eyewear for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Our LASIK uses an ultraprecise laser to adjust your eye, which can mean even greater enhancement and recovery, and we’re happy to determine if LASIK is right for you during a consultation at our Encino laser eye center.

Cataract Surgery

As we age, our eyes develop cataracts, which is when the lens in your eye begins to cloud and eventually impair vision. This can only be corrected through cataract surgery, where our surgeons safely remove the cataract and replace the clouded lens with an artificial one — which can even enhance vision.

Cornea Care

The cornea, or front layer of your eye is critical for focusing vision and protecting your inner eye. That also leaves it susceptible to injury or disease. We’re trained to provide complete care to your corneas for issues including keratoconus, pterygium, and corneal infections. Perhaps most commonly, we offer dry eye disease evaluations and personalized treatments for rapid relief and long-lasting solutions.


Implantable contact lens (ICL) surgery safely places an artificial lens permanently in your eye. This procedure, which doesn’t affect sensitive areas of the eye like the cornea or lens, is an ideal option for patients with nearsightedness who aren’t good candidates for LASIK or other laser eye surgeries.

I had evo ICL surgery last week and Dr. Dougherty and his team were incredible! My first consultation appointment was in December, and Dr. Dougherty spent 30 minutes on the phone with my parents walking through options afterwards (we decided I’d go with evo ICL instead of LASIK due to my thin corneas and dry eyes). Dr. Dougherty made me feel truly looked after and comfortable! After my consultation I went out of town for a few months so I had to push back my surgery. Christina did an amazing job helping coordinate, arranging pre-op and post-op appointments, and getting me all the info I needed! The entire DLV team was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The procedure itself wasn’t painful (I just felt pressure) and the recovery was quick. I now have 20-15 vision and would highly recommend DLV vision to anyone looking to get any kind of eye procedure - they are absolutely incredible!! :)

I had a consultation via phone and they provided great service. They called my in advance and there was no wait time unlike other offices. They offered to give me much more information instead of sweeping it under the rug. I was informed about the risks and I feel much more comfortable about the procedure now that I know I’ll be in good hands. I plan on going forth with LASIK soon.

Dr Paul Dougherty did my LASIK recently, and I have to tell you...the experience was nothing short of exquisite. From beginning to end, he walked me through everything and it was seamless. Calm, cool, comfortable. Not to mention the staff made me feel right at home. I wouldn't trust my eyes with anyone else.

I was referred over to Dr. Doughtery for cross-linking procedure. His team is absolutely great and he always puts patient care first. He was very clear with communication and I am greatly to have worked with him. His staff member Christina Simental was absolutely great to work with and she really made the process easy for me to understand. Thank you very much for making it a great experience, Christina!
