He was also involved in the early developmental stages of the femtosecond laser (Intralase) for refractive surgery, a process that increases precision and accuracy of incisions made during cataract surgery. The scope of his practice includes all aspects of refractive surgical correction of the eye, not just laser vision correction”, states the official website of Scripps Clinic Mission Valley.

He also has additional training in refractive laser vision correction surgery, using a variety of technologies to treat a range of conditions. When he is not practicing, Dr. Quiceno is a professional musician and vocalist and has recorded several albums. “Described as traditional South American music with a new age twist, he can be seen performing throughout San Diego County. Dr. Quiceno is married with two daughters and has been the official ophthalmologist of the Padres for the past six years”, states the website of Scripps Clinic Mission Valley.
