Paveloff Vision Center continues to set the standard for eye care in the Tri-Counties by combining Dr. Paveloff’s experience and highly skilled staff with the very latest in technology.


Dr. Michael Paveloff has provided virtually the entire spectrum of eye care to the Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties since 1996. Frequently, people also travel from Los Angeles and Bakersfield seeking   Dr. Paveloff’s expertise in vision correction. He is recognized as a leader in the advancement of cataract and refractive surgery, and was the first surgeon in Santa Barbara to implant the ReSTOR multifocal lens and the PanOptix Trifocal IOL. This level of expertise and professionalism is also displayed by the back office staff of Paveloff Vision Center as it is comprised entirely of certified ophthalmic technicians and certified ophthalmic assistants.


Bladeless, all-laser LASIK is here, making the procedure safer and more precise than ever. Dr. Paveloff individualizes the entire LASIK procedure including; a custom diagnosis with WaveScan measurements, a precisely tailored corneal flap with IntraLase, and a custom laser treatment with the VISX Star S4 IR laser.

Presently, more than 11 million LASIK procedures have been performed making it the most common elective surgery in the United States. However, it wasn’t until LASIK advanced into an “all-laser” procedure, combining IntraLase with wavefront guided lasers, that NASA approved it for astronauts facing the physically demanding conditions in space. Likewise, all-laser LASIK is now approved by the U.S. military and Dr. Paveloff has the only LASIK center in Santa Barbara offering this very same technology.

A renowned cataract surgeon as well, Dr. Paveloff recently became one of the first surgeons in Santa Barbara to perform Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery. The combination of the new LenSx laser and Dr. Paveloff’s expertise makes your cataract procedure safer and more precise than ever before.

Additionally, cataract patients are often able to eliminate their dependence on glasses with the Crystalens accommodative lens, the ReSTOR and TECNIS multifocal lenses and the astigmatism correcting Toric lens.

Dr. Paveloff continues to utilize the latest technological advancements in refractive surgery to allow his patients to achieve the very best visual outcomes.


Unlike high-volume medical practices that often compromise the quality of care provided, Paveloff Vision Center offers a comfortable, boutique-like atmosphere. Dr. Paveloff takes the time to answer any questions and makes the office visit a pleasant experience for each patient. We’re confident you will find the professional, highly-trained staff warm and accommodating.
