Dr. Faktorovich is a highly ranked surgeon, she's heavy into research and she's the author of a book on the lasers that are used in the LASIK procedure. I knew she was a skilled doctor, bu...

This is definitely the place to go for LASIK. I had gone to another clinic for a LASIK consultation but was unimpressed. I was looking for something more professional and reliable. PVI delivered on that! From the front desk to the doctors, everyone was calm, professional, and friendly. When I met Dr...

My excellent optometrist, who I trust dearly, sees the aftermath (post-op) of the LASIK surgeries by different surgeons in the bay area. She highly recommended Dr. Ella Faktorovich as she has seen the best results with Dr Faktorovich out of all the surgeons. I'm so glad I went to PVI. I've had the s...
