Dr. Faktorovich came highly recommended by many of my coworkers, my eye doctor, and my gf's eye doctor. Everyone's consensus was that she was the best LASIK surgeon in San Francisco and possibly the entire Bay Area. The CEO of my company had LASIK done by Dr. Faktorovich and spoke very highly of her...

Dr. Ella Faktorovich is an incredibly accomplished ophthalmologist in the Bay Area. Dr. Faktorovich performed PRK on my fiancé and years later (summer 2019) did my lasik surgery. Despite how knowledgeable she is, Ella is humble, warm and welcoming. She explains the procedure to you in very simple t...

Dr Faktorovich gave me better vision than I have ever seen before! I cannot thank her enough, along with her team, as the process was easier than I expected.

I highly recommend PVI! I just had the PRK procedure done last Thursday and I had a great experience. Everyone that works there is so nice, comforting, and professional. Dr. Faktorovich and Dr. Lee are very knowledgeable and will answer any question you may have. I felt that I was having the best of...

As everyone has already mentioned, they are a very professional friendly staff. I had LASIK, and the procedure and aftermath was mostly painless, with some minor stinging during that first four hours where you keep your eyes shut. But overall, and I don't think other people stressed this enough, the...

I'm just finishing up my first week with my new eye sight. I'd read all the previous reviews and thoroughly researched PVI, but, I'll admit, I was still nervous about what the results would be, just hoping it would be similar to having my contacts. Just five hours after the procedure, my eyesight wa...

Originally was at SF Eye Institute, and they referred me here to get more advanced testing. First, while this doesn't factor into my rating, I will say that the layout/setup of the place is incredible/immaculate/amazing. Love the free coffee/snacks, and everything looks beautiful and is so clean. Ha...

Dr. Faktorovich is absolutely amazing (and the nicest, most humble bedside manner for someone who pioneered the IntraLasik procedure). can't say enough great things about PVI and the doctors/staff. They were all very professional and helpful. I'd been contemplating Lasik for quite some time but like...

I don't have much to add that others haven't said, but if you're considering Lasik, you won't regret having it done here. They are top-notch. I'm super-squeamish and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, but I have no regrets. I went from Coke bottles to better than 20/20 overnight.

I've been crying the last three days. They're tears of JOY - literally - not due to overwatery eyes or discomfort or regret. I may be a baby, but there are tears forming as I'm staring, clearly, without contacts or my -7/-6.5 prescription glasses. Let's give you some history. I come from a family of...

Here's the quick summary, as I am a person who will use 50 words when 5 will do: 1) If you're going to get eye surgery, this is the place to go. They're serious eye people and will bend over backwards to do everything right for you. 2) I wish I would have remembered to fill the vicodin prescription ...

*updated review* Dr. Faktorovich is very kind and the staff is nice and the procedure itself went fine. I got my Lasik in Nov 2004 and a touch-up on my left eye in February 2006. My eyes have regressed back to astigmatism, my left eye much more than my right. I am going to get another newer proc...

I found it interesting that the only reviews that didn't give PVI 5-stars were people who were not appropriate candidates for LASIK. Turns out I'm not a good candidate for LASIK because my corneas have irregularities that can be magnified by the laser treatment. But Dr. Faktorovich and everyone at ...

I was tired of being dependent on glasses and contacts were a struggle when I wore them - so I had to do something.
