In 1994, Dr. Tantisira was one of the first surgeons in the state of Hawaii to perform no-shot, no-stitch, no-patch cataract surgery. Offering great benefits to patients, this less invasive intraocular procedure requires excellent surgical skills and manual dexterity, as well as great consideration for patient comfort. These skills are of benefit to not only her ophthalmology patients, but also to her cosmetic patients who frequently remark on her very gentle touch during their treatments. Dr. Tantisira established her own practice in 2004 to concentrate on providing premium, patient-centered eye care and cosmetic practice.
Recognized as one of America’s Top Ophthalmologists since 2007, Dr. Tantisira has over 23 years’ experience with delicate surgery and Botox injections. She now features a wide assortment of cosmetic procedures in her Honolulu office. Because of her long experience with microsurgical techniques and sculpture, Dr. Tantisira is well-known for her ability to treat patients with a gentle, artistic hand. Each patient is evaluated at each and every visit. Therefore, treatment results are not only youthful, but also very natural. Her loyal patients happily return to her for all their aesthetic treatments.
