Robert T. Lin, MD


Devoted full time to refractive surgery, Robert T. Lin. MD is a pioneer in the ultra-thin flap LASIK procedure, better known as MICRO-LASIK® (Trademark #2681144, U.S. Patent Office) as well as the LASEK procedure. He has been featured on nationally televised shows, such as Health Watch to discuss the advantages of the MICRO-LASIK® procedure, which is a tissue conserving technique that results in less dry eyes, decreased weakening of the cornea, and offers more available treatment options to patients.

Dr. Lin is a leader in refractive surgery, enabling him to offer the latest and most advanced vision enhancing options including the All-Laser Lasik and Refractive Cataract Surgery that allow patients to see well both near and far, Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) for extremely high nearsightedness, Intacs Corneal Rings for Keratoconus, and FDA approved Ortho-K contact lenses that slows the progression of nearsightedness in children. Dr. Lin has years of knowledge and experience which allows him to properly evaluate a patient’s needs and provide the best solution, even if it means advising a patient not to undergo a procedure.

Patient care is of the utmost importance to Dr. Lin and provides the foundation of all his Clinics. Dr. Lin founded IQ Laser Vision in 1999 and continues to be the Center’s Medical Director. For over 14 years Dr. Lin has overseen the growth and expansion of the Center to what it is today with multiple locations throughout Southern California and with its first Northern California center in San Jose.

With over 40,000 refractive procedures performed, Dr. Lin received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley before moving to UCLA for his medical training. He completed his residency in ophthalmology under one of the world’s most preeminent programs at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA, where he is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor. Dr. Lin continues his work as a consultant to other eye surgeons who seek his expertise and knowledge with challenging cases. He acts as a mentor, training students and doctors in refractive procedures and certifies LASIK surgeons. Dr. Lin believes knowledge is growth and continues to dedicate himself to the field of ophthalmology, publishing numerous scientific publications and contributing his time to participate at various speaking engagements and lectures around the world. Dr. Lin is a LASIK patient himself having undergone the procedure over 14 years ago and still enjoys 20/20 vision today!
