"I hope that through my columns I will enlighten readers to the importance of being proactive about getting and keeping excellent sight throughout their lifetime." Each week Dr. Faktorovich will deliver interesting and insightful reviews of vital information about the general care and maintenance of vision, detection of disease, and reviews of exciting breakthroughs in medicine and surgery related to eye conditions and vision correction.
