Dr. Raviv as a very kind and professional doctor. He did my cataract surgery and did a magnificent job. He returned my vision like it was thirty years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Raviv to anyone who has problems with their vision.

Dr. Raviv did an outstanding surgery on my right eye. I now have 20/20 vision. Thanks so much to Dr. Raviv.
in Brooklyn,NY |
He performed 2 surgeries on my right eye yesterday, one of which procedures all the medical literature said has complications so serious that 2 other renowned surgeons backed off from even trying. Dr. Raviv performed the surgeries flawlessly and it appears I have a perfect result. He explained everything and answered all my questions. In my opinion he is a real ace and I am glad and lucky he was my surgeon. David Greene,Esq.
in Jamaica, NY |
I was very nervous about having a cataract surgery. Dr. Raviv was very patient and explained the whole process to me. I had my surgery on 8/23/17. Dr. Raviv was extremely attentive throughout the procedure. I had more than a positive experience with Dr. Raviv. I could see everything clearly right after the surgery. He is a very skilled and competent surgeon. I feel very comfortable to schedule my next surgery on my other eye.
in Ossining, NY |
Dr. Raviv was the only consulted specialist who correctly diagnosed my Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. As a result of prior treatment by other doctors, I developed two large cataracts and was seriously visually impaired. Dr. Raviv recommended I implant Introcular Lens as I was young and could benefit from these state of the art lens. The result was remarkable and I have near perfect vision. He also stabilized my MGD condition and has given my great relief from discomfort.
in Fort Lee, NJ |
Dr. Raviv is definitely one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. He spends time, explains procedures, and the results of his surgery are amazing. I just finished cataract surgery in both eyes. Today is the day after surgery and I can see like never before. He is caring and certainly up on the latest procedures. I couldn't be more delighted. I would recommend Dr. Raviv in an instant.

Dr. Raviv performed a miracle for my wife. My wife was seeing 20/500 in her left eye, from an advanced cataract. She also had two other conditions, astigmatism from a pterygium, and puedoexfoliation. The operation was fantastic. She now sees 20/20 in the eye without glasses. She sees the colors of flowers more beautiful than she ever saw them in her life, the leaves green, every really clear. Thank you God for giving Dr. Raviv genius, and miracle hands. We will always be grateful.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Raviv solved my blepheritis/eye tearing/inflammation suffering with Lipiflow and Blephex, amazing drug free procedures that work. He is doing great work! I am very grateful to him.
in Huntington, NY |
I was a challenging case for cataract surgery. I had previous procedures performed on my eyes to correct severe near-sightedness (ALK and RK) in the early days of this technology. Ordinary cataract surgery would not help correct my vision but Dr. Raviv, with his skill, experience and technologically advanced equipment, was my only hope. I didn't experience any discomfort during or after the procedure. Needless to say, my vision is almost perfect now! It has changed my life and I am very grateful
