Dr. Swanic established the Las Vegas Eye Institute in 2013 after being in private practice at a larger group. His goal was to bring the world-class eye care that he was trained to provide to the Las Vegas Valley. Dr. Swanic was born and raised in Las Vegas and returned home after completing his residency at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and his fellowship in Cornea and Refractive surgery at UCLA’s world renowned Jules Stein Eye Institute.

Dr. Swanic uses the most advanced LASIK and cataract laser technology. And he understands your concerns, because he has personally undergone laser vision correction in 2010. Patients always love his down-to-earth, calming demeanor.

"Dr. Swanic is so personable. He really cares and knows each patient by name."
