"Dear Dr. Heersink,
Thank you for demonstrating genuine empathy upon reviewing my visual field exam results and personally ensuring that I received prompt follow-up care participating in a conference call that required a certain amount of pressure on your part to secure. A subsequent MRI revealed nothing of concern which is certainly a delightful development! Beyond your roll in sparing me a period of prolonged anxiety, I must thank you for filling me with confidence and reassurance as I observed I was in the care of a physician demonstrating the utmost professionalism and interest which means a lot when facing grave concerns of such magnitude."

"As a professional fighter it is vital that I can see my opponent clearly. My poor vision was effecting both my career and my everyday life. Having done extensive research I found Dr. Fabricant to have both the impeccable credentials and the years of experience that I was looking for. Having now had treatment by Dr. Fabricant I can honestly say that my vision is perfect, even beyond my highest expectations. When it comes to sight, one cannot afford to make the wrong choice.

I have been extremely happy with the service that I received from the Pacific Eye Institute and the excellent team of Doctors there. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Dr. Fabricant to friends, family and anyone wanting to improve their vision."

"I can't tell you what a gift Dr. Fabricant and his office have given me as I am now able to actually SEE! It was an amazing experience and the office staff as well as Dr. Fabricant made me feel so at home and friendly! I love that place and I love them because now I can actually SEE my cute co-stars ;)"

“Dear Dr. Fabricant,

This morning, I looked in the mirror at my black eye and smiled. As I looked closer, I could also see quite a few wrinkles. I knew I had wrinkles, but today I could see them very clearly. I smiled again. In the past 3 weeks I have had a cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I am so happy with the outcome. I should have done this a long time ago. I never realized how quick and painless the whole procedure is. The actual surgery took less than 15 minutes. I can see well again, and without glasses.

I do need reading glasses. Before the surgery I used to take my glasses off in order to read small print, now I put on my reading glasses when reading up close. I felt very confident in selecting you and Pacific Eye Institute to perform the surgery and I couldn't be more pleased. For your information, when I was looking for a doctor, everyone I spoke with recommended you. Your staff is very friendly and helpful. You and they eased my anxiety by explaining everything to me as it was being done. Thank you very much.”

"Ten years ago I selected Dr. Fabricant to perform Lasik eye surgery on both of my eyes. A long time wearer of mono vision contact lenses, I opted for this procedure on my eyes. Now at age 62 plus, my vision deteriorated (most likely due to my age) and I needed to use "drug store readers."

I wanted to go back to great vision and decided to see if I was a good candidate for a second surgery. Dr. Fabricant was my first choice. Even though I presently live in Colorado, I came to California to have Dr. Fabricant do a flap lift. The surgery was once again painless, quick healing with the experts at Pacific Eye Institute. They have the best equipment, professional and thorough staff that gave me confidence and comfort.

It is a blessing to see clearly every moment of the day. thank you to both Dr. Fabricant and Dr. McAllister and the entire staff in Rancho Cucamonga."

"I waited fifteen years before I decided to have refractive surgery. After viewing Pacific Eye Institute's website and reading the testimonials of all the people who had successful outcomes, I then knew that this was for me. I've worn glasses and contact lenses since I was nine years of age. Dr Fabricant and his All Pro Staff are the most thorough medical staff I have ever experienced.

They have scored a touchdown in my life! My vision has gone from 20/200 to 20/15. They truly belong in the Hall of Fame for refractive surgery."

Premium Lens Testimonial

To Doctor Fabricant and the Pacific Eye Institute,

I would like to express my greatest thanks for the Crystalens surgery. My eyesight is fantastic! Colors and images are much clearer, in fact they are crystal clear. I am now reading the newspaper, texting and reading labels without glasses! Images in the far distance are clear.

I open the refrigerator and all the product labels and the colors jump out at me now! The contrast in objects are also extremely clear. The carpet in my house used to look like one big mat now I see all the individual strands of the fibers. Working on the computer is one of the first improvements I noticed. I wore glasses at all times to do computer work and now I do not have to. The letters, images and colors are extremely clear now without wearing glasses. I used to have to wear glasses every time I picked up a hand tool and now there is no need to.

Before the Crystalens surgery I would hunt my reading glasses 15-20 times a day. Now on the rare occasion that I have to look in the phone book at the tiny print and the lighting is poor I do not have to hunt them anymore. I would leave the house to go somewhere and would panic if I forgot my glasses. Now I do not have to bring them with me at all!

Thanks so much as this has truly been a life changing procedure!

I received the best care from you guys then from any medical institution of any kind in my life. I was mighty pleased to have my surgery, Pre-op and Post-op care done by this Institute. You don’t know how much this means to a patient that has to have this kind eye surgery to know that the ones doing this to him care so much. You made me feel so comfortable and well cared for that even if my sight comes back or not, I am giving you the highest recommendation I can imagine, and I’m grateful for it. Thank you!”

"Estimado Dr:

Deseo expresarle mi gratitud por el trabajo efectuado en la operación de catarata en mi ojo izquierdo. Su instituto mostro varias fases deseables en su profesión, entre ellas,

1 - "Las citas fueron puntuales". Gracias, no empleamos tiempo en largas esperas

2 - "Cortesia y amabilidad humana". Todo paciente necesita un oido que le escuche y una sonrisa de calma a los nervios y todo su personal la tuvo para conmigo.

3 - "La presentación escrita y en video". De la información a mi caso me ayudo a calmar mis dudas.

4 - "La operación y todo el proceso". Se llevo a cabo con mucho profesionalismo, tecnicismo y sobre todo un fuerte sentido de logro por parte de personal.

Dr. Fabricant, gracias, usted hizo un trabajo excelente, y a todo quien necesite de su servicios, Lo recomendare."

"Dear Dr. Fabricant:

I would like to express my highest professional regards to you and your staff. I just want to say I have never been treated so well as I was by you and your nurses during my recent cataract surgery. The staff that took care of me in the back room were absolutely the friendliest and the most kind crew I have ever seen. Each and every one of them made me feel like I was so special. I can't get over how friendly and courteous they treated me. There ought to be more staff around this country like them. Of course, I was very pleased with what you did to my eye. Thank you again.

If you ever need a reference on behalf of your eye surgeries, please have your patient call me and I would refer them to you as the best I have ever seen. Thank you again for everything."

"Dear Doctor Fabricant,

On March 3rd, I had eye surgery performed by Dr. Richmond Roeske.

Even prior to the surgery date, I felt very confident with him - and appreciated his ability to discuss specifics. He displayed professionalism and I was very much impressed with him.

On the day of the surgery, everything went like clockwork. In fact, all staff memebers performed with "scapel" precision. Everyone knew what to do and did it at the proper time - reflecting sound organization.

All in all, I've been extremely pleased with all members of your staff - at both locations.

Finally, I'd appreciate it if you would make my comments known to the people involved."

"Twenty years ago, my eyesight began to change. Bookkeeping was hard to concentrate on and my contact lenses were becoming difficult to wear. I was sent to Doheny Eye Clinic in Los Angeles and was told the condition was due to coning of the cornea and I would probably lose my eyesight completely in seven years.

I was desperate and asked anyone I could about the disease. As fate would have it, about the same time, Dr. Robert Fabricant was studying corneal transplants in New Orleans. I was put in contact with him and thus began the marvelous journey, under his care, including two corneal transplants and, later, two cataract surgeries, resulting in excellent vision today!!

His staff, at Pacific Eye Institute, has always been very professional and caring. Some have even been with him the twenty years I’ve been a patient. A first time patient, or one of twenty years, receives the same attention and degree of quality care."

"To me, he will always be DOCTOR FAB!"

"I am 51 years old and my myopia was in the severe range (-14.5/-14). I had been wearing glasses since I was in 2nd grade and contact lenses since high school. I had been considering LASIK for several years before finally deciding to seriously pursue it. When I met with Dr. Fabricant, however, he suggested that I consider ICL because of my severe nearsightedness. He said that the ICL operation was probably my only option to achieve the results I wanted. My initial research on ICL was very impressive and the valuable information Dr. Fabricant provided reinforced my decision.

I scheduled the ICL surgery on my right eye the first week in June and my left eye 2 weeks after. The procedure only took about 20 minutes, but the results were miraculous. My latest eye exam gave me the results I have been longing for since 2nd grade - 20/20 vision! It is the greatest feeling when you first open your eyes in the morning and are able to see clearly!

Thank you very much, Dr. Fabricant, for giving me a new life."

"Before my initial consultation at Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center I was very skeptical about laser eye surgery and the results it would deliver for me. The friendly and experienced staff at Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center erased all of my doubts and hesitations during my first visit to the Center. The procedure only took 15 minutes, it didn't hurt at all and I had 20/20 vision the very next day. I recommended Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center to all my family and friends.

"Thank you Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center."

"I had worn glasses and/or contacts for 36 years. My eyesight was so bad I couldn't see more than a couple of feet away. I had no interest in laser eye surgery until a couple of friends had it done with successful results. So I thought I would at least inquire about it, I found your staff to be professional, courteous and very helpful with any questions I had. The procedure was routine and exactly as described. I love my better then 20/20 eyesight! I give the Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center my highest recommendation. Thanks again to you and your staff."

I have already recommended the Lasik procedure done by Dr. Fabricant and the Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center to my family, friends and co-workers.

"There are numerous Lasik centers in the Inland Empire and the decision to go to one over the other is not easy. I chose Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center because Dr. Fabricant's reputation within the community as an eye surgeon is outstanding. Additionally, Pacific Eye has been a part of our community since 1981, unlike many Lasik centers that have popped-up within the past few years to simply capitalize on the Lasik boom. My 20/20 vision confirms the fact that Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center is the place to go for Lasik."

"It is simply amazing! What else can I say about the eyesight that I now have as a result of the Lasik procedure performed on me by Dr. Fabricant. It has now been a year since my procedure and my eyesight is better than ever. Everyone at Pacific Eye Institute Laser Center was very helpful and professional.

"What I really appreciate was how warm and friendly everyone was. This was the easiest and most painless medical procedure that I've ever had. After wearing glasses for more then half my life, it is wonderful to now have 20/15 eyesight and no longer need my glasses. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!"
