While some of us are lucky to have perfect vision throughout our lifetime, many are not. Impairments can be the result of problems in the way our eyes are built or in some cases, changes take place over time.

ABC News Anchor, Dr. Dean Edell reviews the exciting advances of IntraLASIK and sites Dr. Faktorovich as the first surgeon in San Francisco to perform this important procedure.

"WOW! What a wonderful experience. From the initial consultation through the completion of surgery..."
