  • "We use Toluca Lake Optometric Center for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Ferrucci will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."

  • "I was having headaches and felt my contacts were easily drying out all the time. I went in to see Dr. Ferrucci and after an evaluation, he suggested a switch in the type of lenses I use. Within a week of using the new lenses, I noticed a change and haven’t had any problems since. Thanks, Dr. Ferrucci!"
  • "I had considered Lasik surgery in the past, but was still hesitant about the process. Dr. Ferrucci was very thorough in his consultation with me and answered all of my questions, making me feel comfortable with going forward with the procedure. I’m so glad I did the Lasik, it has been of great convenience to me and my sight has never been better."
  • "I’ve been going to Dr. Ferrucci for over five years now and even though I only see him once a year for my annual exam, he and his staff always make me feel very welcome and take care of all my eye care needs. Toluca Lake Optometric Center is the best at what they do and make you feel right at home."
  • "Dr. Ferrucci and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Ferrucci prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
