Amazing personnel. Felt extremely well informed about every step of the process. Operating surgeon was very personable and made me feel comfortable with the choice of PRK.

Everyone at this office is amazing!

very comfortable to talk to the doctors and counselors.

Dr. Parikh was great! I really trusted him and I think he did a great job. He is extremely skilled and I am happy with my results. He is very knowledgeable, as are Dr. Wong and Dr. Peterson.

Great result so far.

Highly recommended. True professionals.

The whole process from start to finish was impeccable! Thank you to Dr. Parikh and his staff. I will refer anyone I know to you for sure! Thank you again! Sincerely, Holly Mitchell

I think Devin at the front desk is rude. Right after opening he instructed me on how to fill the kurig rather than stand up and do it since I didn’t know where the water was while he sat at the desk and didn’t do anything. He also acted like it was an inconvenience when I called and had a question. When I asked about when to get my medications for the surgery, he said he would make a note and call me closer to the surgery. I never received a call from him and was lucky enough to call myself and get me drops the day before I was supposed to start taking them.

Great service. Quick and fast. They make you feel very comfortable.

Love the staff!

I had a good experience. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Parikh and the other doctors and staff based on my own experience.

Thank you very much for your service, I'm very happy with my new vision!!!

I had been putting this off for YEARS because it really freaked me out. A LOT. Now I am so happy to have it done and so very pleased with having it done at Nvision LaJolla. Everyone was friendly and professional and the atmosphere was very calming. Everything - pre, during & post procedure - was thoroughly explained ahead of time and I was able to ask every question imaginable without being made to feel stupid. Dr. Parikh said what he was doing at each and every step of the procedure as it was happening so I knew exactly what was going on the entire time which helped keep me at ease. It went so fast and the recovery was a piece o' cake. Lifetime guarantee is excellent and being able to actually SEE now is truly fantastic.

I had LASIK done on a Friday and had an appointment on Saturday. When I arrived the appointment was quick and professional.

Great Staff, Fast, Friendly and Professional

I am thrilled with the results I was able to realize. Perfect vision with no halo, dry eyes or other concerns I have heard about as a side-effect of laser eye surgery. The professionalism, coordination and cooperation with my "regular" optometrist was seamless. Glad I waited for the technology to evolve to where it is now. 100%

Results were amazing, doctors were nice and helpful, ladies there are super nice Im happy with my surgery

Dr Parikh was awesome. Everything was quick and easy. Best decision I ever made.

Everyone was really great and personable. Staff helped me to feel very relaxed pre-surgery. I would definitely recommend any friends, family, or colleagues to this center.

Everything went great! I never thought it would be possible to have 20/20 vision and I was even more surprised that they were able to achieve 20/15. So happy and grateful!!! Thank you!!

I had a good experience with my first lasik and the touch up 6 months later which I wish could have been avoided. Professional and friendly staff. Decent price and easy financing.

Excellent service and results!

Excellent care from start to finish. My Lasik surgery went flawlessly. I'm pleased with the results and will recommend NVISION to friends and family.

The entire experience was amazing. Katie, Dr. Peterson, and Dr. Parikh all made me feel like we've been friends forever and really made sure I was comfortable and knowledgeable. They worked with me to get my eyes healthy since I came in with an infection and dry eyes. When I was able to see 20/20 and sometimes 20/15 in any tests they were just as excited as I was at my progress from my first set of tests up until surgery day. They truly cared, which made the whole experience very calming. The actual lasik exam was so smoothe and simple that I didn't really realize when it started and was shocked when it ended. My healing process has been a blessing, no complications or complaints from me! The team was amazing and am very grateful to them.

Awesome job!

Surgery went very smoothly and now a little over one week later I have 20/15 vision in both eyes. Would highly recommend all friends and family to use Nvision. Thanks!

The surgery was very straightforward. The staff was great. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Such a friendly staff and comfortable experience.


I'm simply amazed with how quick and easy the whole process was.

My experience was amazing from the moment I entered the clinic for an initial consultation to the moment I walked out after the surgery.

the staff was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable.

The care I received at NVISION Eye Center in La Jolla was impeccable. The entire staff, from the front desk, to my patient care advocate, to Dr. Parikh and his team of nurses and doctors were amazing. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel at ease and comfortable with the procedure and what to expect. I knew I was in good hands throughout the entire process. As well Dr. Parikh talked me through the procedure as it was happening. That went a long way in feeling calm throughout. Also it is important to note I woke up the next day with 20/15 vision! Thank you NVISION!

Great experience all the way around, I was treated very well and informed on the entire process thoroughly.

Friendly and courteous in phone, email, and in-person communications. Appreciated the opportunities to speak directly in-person with both treating and operating surgeons and to get all my (numerous) questions answered. Day-of surgery also went very smoothly and staff provided excellent service -- from offering beverages, to making sure I was comfortable, to providing clear instructions as to what was expected before, during and after surgery.

Everything was Excellent! Thanks a lot

Great experience! Staff is warm and very knowledgeable, answered all of my questions... they put me at ease and guided me through entire process. I feel very comfortable recommending their services to my friends & family and have done so already!

Overall I was happy with my experience. The only negative comment is that after the consultation sessions, I was under the impression that the post-op experience would be a breeze and my eyes would just feel normal after a day or two. Then, the day of the surgery, right before I went into the surgical suite, the tech told me that after the surgery my eyes would feel like they were "sprayed with ghost chili peppers" and be incredibly itchy and I would feel intense burning. What? Right before surgery I was told this? I thought, "Wait, no one mentioned this AT ALL during the pre-op appointments." What ended up happening to me is that it felt like there was a foreign object in my eyes for a few days and there was some itchiness and irritation because of that sensation. Also, I experienced some eye fatigue towards the end of each day with mild headache. And after 6 days, that went away. Now my eyes just feel a little tender if I accidentally touch them. So all in all, I think there is room for improvement on counseling patients of what the post-op experience is like BEFORE the day of the surgery. It seems like there is a WIDE RANGE of what people experience post-op and so it would have been nice to hear that. I guess some people experience that really horrible burning pain for a while. And other people feel completely fine within a day or two. But I really don't think it is a good idea to tell your patients that they WILL experience something like ghost chili peppers in their eyes RIGHT BEFORE having lazers cut into your eye balls. That caused undue stress.

You guys are fantastic! Thanks for giving me my sight back!

Lasik was one of the best decisions I ever made. Nvision was a fantastic experience. Would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking to get lasik done. Thank you guys so much! Josh, Dr. Wong, and Dr. Parikh were all awesome and very helpful. Thanks again.

Doctors and nurses were great!

Wish I was given the post- op Ned's I paid for. I had to call Dr. Peterson to call in a prescription to my pharmacy . Other than that it went ok.

Your customer service and medical professionalism are exceptional. I am do glad that I chose your office for my eye care.

I am very happy with my results. The staff was helpful through most of my visits however the day of surgery I was disappointed. I felt like the day of surgery the staff was unorganized or over scheduled at the time. The surgeon came back was ready then said he had to go find his techs. After I had been givin the Valium & it had kicked in a tech finally came for me to go back up for a couple more scans (why wasn't this done before I was under the influence?) after the scans I was put back in the waiting room and waited another 20-25 min until someone came back at witch point I was getting concerned the Valium would wear off before my surgery even got started. After several more minutes I felt like they had forgotten about me sitting back there. This was my first eye surgery and I was nervous and a little scared & was unclear that there would be over an hour of waiting on staff to have a 5 minute procedure.

State of the art equipment and great, friendly staff. Very professional.

Good experience so far. Still waiting for bandage lens to be removed and vision to rebound.

This was by far the easiest, most comfortable surgeries I have ever had performed, and the advance care and all the necessary information was given to me beforehand and during the surgery. I knew from the moment I walked in I was in great care, in the hands of top-notch professionals, and overall had a very great experience at Nvision Laser Eye Centers.

Everyone in this office from the front desk to the surgery suite are so nice and professional. I went in for my LASIK procedure on 10/28/16. The receptionist at the front desk was friendly and walked me through all my paperwork (I read over everything, but didn't sign anything until I met with her). The financial advisor was so friendly and was a great person to keep a conversation with. She was very welcoming to me and my mom and explained the whole procedure to me before I went in to meet with the Dr. for my re-evaluation. The doctor (Dr. P) and surgeon (Dr. Parikh) along with their team of assistants made me feel so comfortable and confident in my procedure. They explained everything I could experience after the surgery and what to do in those situations. The preparation process was extremely quick and they gave me a goodie bag filled with supplies for when I get home. The surgery was the quickest part! My mom watched the whole thing (and they let her record it), which lasted only 15 minutes for both eyes. Dr. Parikh walked me through everything and gave me very thorough instructions on what was happening while I was getting the surgery. This made me feel so relaxed! I went to sleep for a few hours after my surgery and woke up seeing better than I ever have before in my life! I'm 21 and I've been wearing glasses since I was 7 and contacts since 13. They fixed my extreme astigmatism and I am so happy. Overall, I would definitely recommend NVISON to ANYONE who wants LASIK. Yes, they might be a little pricey, but they have the best technology, the best people, and the best customer service. If I ever have to re-correct my eyes, I wouldn't even think twice on where to go. NVISION is my number one choice.

Fantastic Experience!

Did my research on doctors and was very thorough. This center had the best dr. For the best price with the newest tech options. The facility was pristine, all equipment in excellent condition AND came with lifetime warranty. I would recommend Dr. Parikh in a heart beat. He was completely transparent honest and answered all my questions with real information and no sales techniques. (Believe me I met plenty of LASIK doctors that seemed like cheesy salesman). You will not regret choosing NVISION

Friendly atmosphere. Accommodating of others. Comfortable.

The NVision doctors and staff were extremely helpful throughout the entire process -- they were patient and very knowledgeable when explaining the LASIK procedure and were happy to address our questions and concerns. I would recommend NVision to anyone wanting LASIK!

Thank you Nvision team! Dr. Parikh and his entire team made my experience very smooth and successful.

Everything went so well on Friday! I was nervous all day, but the friendly staff helped keep me at ease during the entire appointment.

Service, education, and expertise was all excellent.
