    I had vision correction surgery with Dr. Liu (ICL placement). Dr. Liu and the staff of SF eye institute were amazing from start to finish! She was extremely thorough, took the time to explain things, and guided me through the process and decision making of having this life changing surgery step by step. Her office staff was friendly and also took excellent care of me. The surgery went perfectly and my results couldn't be better. I am a surgeon myself, so my vision is absolutely critical for my livelihood and career, so going through with this surgery was no small undertaking. I've worn coke bottle thick glasses since I was a child, but after surgery I don't need glasses or contacts anymore to work, operate, and also do the fun active things I love to do like working out, snowboarding, playing basketball etc. It has been now about 2 years since my surgery and my results have still been excellent. Dr. Liu literally changed my life and I couldn't be more grateful!
