Dougherty Laser Vision features friendly, professional, and highly skilled physicians, technicians, support, and administrative staff, using state of the art equipment. Dr. Dougherty came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. Initial workup was at his Westlake office, with surgery in his new Thousand Oaks surgical center. I was his last patient scheduled for surgery for the day, but was treated as if I were the first. Outstanding, friendly, and reassuring surgery center staff. I was impressed that Dr. Dougherty came out at the end of the day to thank the staff for their work. Looking forward to second, subsequent surgery.

Jeffrey Cheadle

Wow!! Highly recommended! From the moment I walk into the office of Dougherty Laser Vision, I was greeted with smiles and superior customer service from all team members. The offices are clean and very well kept in addition to being run in a timely fashion. I had the monovision surgery and now have excellent vision. I am so grateful for my experience with Dr. Paul Dougherty who is nothing short of a stellar human being who authentically cares about his patients. As a holistic, non-invasive brain surgeon, I am extending a brain spa to each and everyone of his staff members. In gratitude, Selene

Yuni Wibowo

AMAZING experience here! Wow! I just had Lasik here yesterday and I couldn't wait to post my review! All of the staff here are very friendly, the doctors/techs are all very informative and explained every little detail to me. I was a nervous wreck but everyone was comforting assuring me there is nothing to worry about. The procedure itself was very quick and I was worried for no reason. Today I went in for my post op appointment and my eyes are healthy and my vision is better than 20/20! Words just cannot describe how I feel. I'm so happy!! No more glasses, no more contacts! No more reaching for glasses every morning I wake up. This is life changing for me! The only thing I regret is not doing it way sooner! Thank you Dr. Paul and the rest of the team! You are all wonderful people and I'm so happy to have been referred to you! I'm LOOKING forward to a bright future!

I love going here because the people here are caring and helpful. I don't wait but a few minutes to get seen, not like other places that take forever. They take their time with you to make sure you understand what they are saying and also give you paperwork on any diagnosis. Thank you

Had a very pleasant experience. Easy process. Well explained. The first 5 hours after surgery you basically keep your eyes closed while eyes recover- but after that and within 8 hours I was seeing and functioning wonderfully. I used the topographic laser to get the best result. I am only 2 days removed from surgery but functioning normally and fully anticipate at my 1 week check up i will confirm I am 20/20 no issues no contacts!

Ludeah Hudson

went for 2 consults and decided to have Dr. Bala @ Dougherty Vision Center do my LASIK, which I had done yesterday. I was debating between SMILE & Lasik. First consult I went to was at CCRS which I'd seen referrals for Dr Lee & his clinic were fine- but they heavily promote being able to do surgery the same day as your consult...which ok, sure. but then they couldn't really give me a a straight answer on if they recommend Lasik over SMILE. SMILE seems like a better choice- no flap, faster recovery, same price. When I went to see Dr Bala- she did a more in depth consult actually measuring the thickness of my cornea w a little pokey stick thing. I spent more time w the dr in the consult. When I asked about SMILE vs Lasik, and shared my current thoughts based on research & my other consult, she told me their practice had seen more complications including worse halos and dry eye w SMILE, DESPITE the fact that it's promoted as being less dry eye inducing, and that their practice had fallen out of favor w SMILE and she would suggest LASIK. She went deep into all my questions about what kind of impact it would take for my cornea to shatter post Lasik (something that's scared me from Lasik in the past) and went in depth in quelling my fear about head impact eye injury post LASIK. She also explained in depth what would happen if an earthquake occurred during the procedure (if there is an earthquake during a Lasik procedure the machine will stop the procedure and save its spot where it left off so that when it is deemed safe it can complete the procedure. Dr Bala explained the safety of the machines and the importance of patients safety which was very reassuring and important to me.), and in terms of scheduling, they separate pre-op and surgery by a week, very much not pushing any sort of one-stop shop ness. Also on Dr Balas IG which I looked at before going in for my consult, she had a video of another doctor who went to her for his Lasik....which sealed the deal for me. Additionally they accept VSP and offer a VSP discount! Had the 2 laser Z-Lasik procedure in Feb, and it was completely painless, and I immediately could see clearly, and the next day now that my eyes have rested and the haziness has gone away I am literally a CHANGED PERSON.

Susan Craig

ADV Vision has been caring for my eyes since I first went in to be checked for cataracts and Dr. Abroms told me I had a detached retina and referred me to a retinal surgeon. Since then they have done cataract surgery on both eyes and are now planning some in office laser treatments. In EVERY instance they have been professional, reassuring and caring - both the staff and doctors. I trust their skills and knowledge implicitly.

Sandy Stewart

I never mind going to see My eye doctor. Everyone is always very professional and the scheduling is always on time. Very efficient. I have glaucoma so my appointments are quarterly. I’m happy to be a patient.

I love the people working at ADV Vision. They are friendly and helpful. Christine is so sweet and a joy to be greeted by her when you arrive. Jorge was so friendly, and puts you at ease while he does his part before the doctor comes in. Dr. Abroms is great and I feel very confident that he's going to have my sight back to normal after my cataract surgeries.

I arrived right on time and was taken into exam room before my seat was even warm. I dread long waiting room visits so was happy to be seen fast. The whole office and staff seem to run very efficiently like clockwork. The doctor was kind and thorough. I knew I was in good hands with my precious eyesight.

Sharon E Biddle

Dr. Abrams has picked the best staff members any office would want to have. Everyone there is so sweet, polite, very educated and in good spirits. I’ve been taking my mom to Dr. Abrams for the past 2 years and my dad just recently started going there and I appreciate a safe comfortable environment. Dr. Abrams never rushes through any appointments and makes sure all our questions are answered in persons or by phone, he has never left us hanging and that’s trustworthy. He has saved my mom from going blind. Thank you for that! His facility is so nice and clean, it feels safe. Maybe they can bring their snacks back after the pandemic ;-) I highly recommend Dr. Abrams to the world! =D

The service was great, I really enjoyed finding out how much help i could benefit from this service. It was a great service to benefit from and they are very professional in their dealings. Great job. Happy to recommend ADV to friends and family. Thank you

I was referred by 3 different strangers to go to Dr. Abroms. The 5 stars given isn't enough. They deserve way more stars if it were possible. The staff were so nice and helpful. Nicest staff in a Dr's office that I have experienced. Dr. Abroms even called me himself after my surgery to check on me. Most caring Dr I've ever met! I will recommend him to everyone I can!
