Dr.Parikh Named Top Doc by San Diego Magazine and San Diego County Medical Society

Press Room


San Diego, Calif., October 12, 2011– Dr. Max Parikh, M.D. of NVISION Laser Eye Centers in La Jolla was named Top Doc by San Diego Magazine.  Dr. Parikh was one of only 526 physicians, and one of only 14 ophthalmologists, in San Diego honored in this month’s issue of the magazine.

The San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS), working collaboratively with San Diego Magazine for eight years, identified those board certified physicians within the county who are held in highest regard by their peers. Any board certified physician in San Diego, not just members of the SDCMS, may vote for any board certified doctor who practices within San Diego County to whom they would refer their patients and family members. In 2011, San Diego Magazine had the most responses ever—almost 1,100 physicians voted.

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.  And, having undergone LASIK surgery himself, he understands the process both as a surgeon and as a patient.

Board certified for more than eight years, Dr. Parikh has performed more than 12,000 San Diego LASIK procedures, including many patients who are San Diego Chargers players.  He specializes in LASIK, PRK, LASEK, cataracts, intraocular lenses, custom LASIK and Wavefront technology, intrastromal corneal rings (Intacs), and CK. He was one of the first West Coast surgeons trained in custom Wavefront treatment technology.
