Dr. Francisco Pabalan completed his Ophthalmology specialty training at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, after receiving his Medical degree from Albany Medical College in Albany, New York. He served the military for four years as Staff Ophthalmologist in the US Air Force at March AFB, CA, then opened the first full time private Ophthalmology practice in Moreno Valley, CA in 1990.
Dr. Pabalan is the President and director of the Pabalan Eye Center team. With over 23 years experience in eye surgery and ophthalmology care, he has been an innovator in the field of ophthalmology bringing the latest eye research, developments and technologies to his practice.
Dr. Pabalan is the first in California's Inland Empire to provide CK, the breakthrough procedure to improve near vision in people over 40 who have become dependent on reading glasses.
He is also the first in Inland Empire to offer Contour Thread Lift Facial Rejuvenation.
Dr. Pabalan also provides Intacs non-laser vision correction for nearsighted patients, and patients with Keratoconus, who may not consider themselves good candidates for laser surgery.
Dr. Pabalan, one of the most experienced Intacs surgeons in the United States, integrated Intacs into Pabalan Eye Center shortly after FDA approval in Spring of 2000. After clinical review of excellent results, Dr. Pabalan was selected to a five surgeon panel to develop the "Prolate System", a highly updated Intacs procedure, which reduced surgical maneuvering by 30%. This shortened the procedure time, increased comfort, and sped recovery. Dr. Pabalan has taught this new standard for implanting Intacs to many U.S. and International surgeons across the country.
Pabalan Eye Center has been named an official INTACS Center of Excellence.
Since 1997, Dr. Pabalan has provided PRK and LASIK to patients of the Inland Empire, and now uses VISX's lastest laser, the Star S4, to correct with even greater precision, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The newest VISX update now provides Custom LASIK for both nearsighted and farsighted patients. Dr. Pabalan provides complimentary consultations, preoperative care, and postoperative care in a friendly, personal setting at Pabalan Eye Center .
For Senior Eye Health, Dr. Pabalan specializes in rapid recovery, sutureless, outpatient Vision Correction Cataract Surgery, under topical anesthesia. For patients with significant astigmatism and cataracts, Dr. Pabalan uses the latest Staar Toric foldable intraocular lens implant. This special astigmatism-correcting implant allows the aim of cataract surgery in many patients to be vision improvement, not just vision restoration. Now, Seniors having cataract surgery can enjoy some of the same vision correction benefits produced by CK, INTACS, and LASIK.
Dr. Pabalan now offers the Restor multifocal intraocular lens implant for cataract repair. This latest high technology implant is designed to allow your eye to see better at both distance and near, without the use of glasses.
