Selene Kepila

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

Went there this week as a new patient and so far experience has been excellent!!

Olga Vee

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!

Julie Fackrell

I am always very happy with the doctor and his assistant. I feel like he truly cares and wants to help. I’m not sure why the wait time is always extreme. I know now, to be prepared with a game or book and to not schedule anything after the appointment. One time I waited almost 2 hours to see the doctor. If the doctor wasn’t so good, I would definitely seek treatment elsewhere. It truly is unacceptable to keep patients waiting so long.

Dave L

I was so hesitant to have my cataract surgery. I was to the point I really needed it done. My aunt and a friend had it done somewhere else in the last year or so. It was not a happy story for them. But my two eyes are so great now. I had the Toric lenses for astigmatism. Now I chose to see distance clearly and to need cheaters for up close. I assumed I would be at a total loss without the cheaters, but fortunately for me, I can manage often times without them. That was such a pleasant surprise. I can drive at night with confidence, and of course, no glasses. It's been 40 years since I could do that. Thank you to a kind staff, to Dr. Kennedy, Dr. Le, and my surgeon Dr. Dougherty.

Dusty Heist Levine

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!

Bob Ogg

The entire staff at Dougherty laser vision does an excellent job in the explanation of the surgery process, appointments are pre-scheduled with little or no wait time. Dr. Dr. Dougherty preforms with such skill. I couldn’t be happier with my vision. The entire process was totally pain free ! I would recommend Dougherty laser vision to any of my friends looking for vision improvement.

Shannon Reilly

I am very pleased with the care I received at Dougherty Vision. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the doctor was professional and thorough. As I always arrive on time to appointments, I appreciate the fact that I did not have to wait too long for my appointment. I will continue my care with Dougherty Laser Vision as I feel I am in great hands.

Chris Sanchez

Staff is very friendly and professional. I felt confident in their ability to execute a successful surgery with all of their informational material and the conversations with the doctors. The doctors and staff are very knowledgeable and give you attention as a valuable patient. They provide top quality service and I would recommend to anyone needing vision correction procedures.

Taha Sutarwala

Amazing experience! Just had LASIK and the world is whole lot clearer. All the staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable. The procedure was very quick and easy. My only regret is not getting it done even sooner! Thank you Dr. Dougherty and the rest of the team!

Ludeah Hudson

I went too Dougherty Lasier Vision, with my grandmother, for the very first time. The staff is amazing!!! They played with my son while I was waiting in the lobby, spoke and kept my grandfather and i entertained while waiting. I my self will be coming here to get my eyes checked. I highly recommend this place.

Keaton Kustler

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.


Very nice people very professional and very attentive to your needs and concerns I would recommend them very highly.

Sharon Gove Sharon

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.

Terry Hamlin

Staff is friendly & knowledgeable, my visit was very pleasant. Dr Abrams treats his patients with respect & answered my question in a way that was easy to understand. I recommend ADV for all lasik procedures.


Dr. Abrams was excellent. I'd give them 5 stars if it wasn't for the longest voice menu I have ever had to sit thru. EVER! I timed it. It was over 2 minutes! Not fun if you're in a time crunch, or used to much shorter waits to talk with a person, or need to make repeated calls to them. It was so irritating, I was tempted not to do business with them so as not to have to sit thru it each time I call, but Dr. Abrams has the best reputation in town. On a positive note, it was amazing! I've seldom experienced such over-the-top over-kill! ????

Robin Goodwin

Excellent service. Before my surgery everything was explained. The surgical team was great and well coordinated. The after surgery follow through was and continues to be through. Dr. Abrons and his team excel at what they do.

Parnell Fuhrer

Very professional, no waiting. Dr. Abrams explained everything very concise. No problems. Would highly recommend. Eyesight has really improved.

Sharon E Biddle

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.


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

Luis Vargas

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

Mary Lou

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!

Terry Clemons

ADV vision is amazing. Staff is very accommodating, very nice and professional. Front receptioness is amazing! Gabby is amazing! Dr. Abrom explains procedure, answered all of my concerns. Highly recommend ADV Vision!
