I received a thorough and I do mean thorough eye exam. Dr. Farhi impressed me because she listed to me as I tried to explain the issues I was experiencing with my eyes and she offered solutions. Very kind, compassionate, and friendly.

Dr Farhi removed a cataract in my left eye and replaced the lens with a synthetic lens that will last for life. My vision in that eye is now 20-20 and I am very pleased with the result. Dr Farhi explained the process and answered all of my questions. Surgery went well and follow up appointments were scheduled over the next 3 weeks to be sure everything went well. The office runs very efficiently. Would recommend her services.

I would recommend Dr. Farhi's practice. I had cataract surgery and the recovery and final outcome have been great! She is very professional and personable as well. Is very interested in what you say and offers excellent advice when you have questions. Great experience with her and will go back to her when the additional cataract surgery is needed. Thanks so much for a good experience, Dr. Farhi!

I have an unusual eye condition, plateau irises, that elevates eye pressure and can result in blindness. Dr. Farhi worked through several procedures in an effort to reduce the pressure, ending with cataract surgery. My vision is great and the pressure is now at a safe level. Relieved and happy.

I am a retired physician who developed cataracts, glaucoma, and age related macular degeneration. Dr. Farhi is an excellent ophthalmologist and a wonderful person. I recently had bilateral cataract surgery and placement of stents to treat glaucoma. The surgery went smoothly, comfortably, and quickly. I think you would be pleased with the care she and her staff provide.

A busy office, but each patient is welcomed by a cheerful and attentive staff who always listen to and answer questions. Cataract surgery and follow-up went well and without complications. Am enjoying distance vision for the first time as a life-long near-sighted person. Amazing!

I needed cataracts removed from both eyes. Dr. Farhi was wonderful! The procedure was explained and all my questions answered! I was made comfortable from the office visit through both surgeries and follow up appointments. I have 20/20 vision, which I haven’t had since high school, I’m 65?? I highly recommend Dr. Farhi.

Dr. Farhi performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes and the results were great. My vision is now 20/20 in both eyes. The procedure was painless and took only about 15 minutes per eye. She is a skilled surgeon with a pleasant personality. The New River Valley is fortunate/blessed to have her services in our region. Her staff is also top notch and clearly works efficiently as a team to ensure a pleasant patient experience.
