NVISION Now Has Nine Locations Throughout California

Newport Beach, Calif., December 14, 2010 – Dr. Thomas Tooma of NVISION Laser Eye Centers, formerly a part of TLC Laser Eye Centers, announced today that NVISION has opened its ninth location in Murrieta.

“We are pleased to announce that Dr. Max Parikh, who is also a surgeon at our La Jolla location, will be the new Medical Director at NVISION Murrieta,” said Dr. Tooma. “As the San Diego Chargers Official Team Ophthalmologist and former medical director at Advanced Ophthalmology Institute, Dr. Parikh knows the importance of precision in LASIK procedures having performed more than 12,000 LASIK procedures, including many patients who are San Diego Chargers players.”

“He was one of the first west-coast surgeons trained in custom Wavefront treatment technology.  And, as an award-winning surgeon, Dr. Parikh has been honored with the Laurence Mehlman Prize and was the recipient of the University of California Regions Scholar Award for four years in a row,” concluded Dr. Tooma.

On September 1, 2010 Medical Director Dr. Thomas Tooma purchased interest in eight TLC Vision Centers to become a separate LASIK brand.  The new brand now operates as NVISION Laser Eye Centers and has the same surgeons, staff and locations in La Jolla, Palm Desert, Ontario, Fullerton, Newport Beach, Laguna Hills, Torrance, and Camarillo.
