Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parekh "Welcome to ClearView Eye Consultants, and thank you for placing your trust in us. We are passionate about improving the quality of your life through our vision-saving and vision-restoring procedures.

The focus of this ClearView Eye Consultants is surgery and I am dedicated to being the best surgeon I can be. I am continually refining my techniques to provide the latest technology and most effective care to my patients.

For example, I was one of the pioneers of Bladeless LASIK in our area and am the only surgeon in the area performing ICL surgery for patients who are not candidates for LASIK or PRK.

I helped create the ICE procedure (iStent, Cataract Surgery, ECP) for Glaucoma and I am the only surgeon in the area certified to implant the iStent device.

My total commitment to providing you with the best surgical care uses a team approach that integrates extraordinary administrative, technical and optometric team members to support you before, during and after your surgery."

I have a wonderful first experience and look forward to my second experience with cataract surgery in a week. The process of evaluation and then surgery went very well and consistent with everything that I was told to expect. I found Dr. Parekh to be direct, to the point, and very willing to answer my questions about the procedure and what to expect post surgery. He was on point in his responses and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.
in State College, PA |
Dr. Parekh not only invited my questions, but he answered them thoroughly and thoughtfully. He conveys confidence to his patients both before and on the day of surgery. My post surgical experiences have unfolded just as described. I've been impressed by the willingness of Dr. Parekh, Kerstin Blough, and Ashley Kiehl to be contacted pre- and post-surgery. Can't believe how bright and colorful the world is after my cataract surgery!
in Mifflintown, PA |
Dr. Parekh is absolutely amazing! He not only thoroughly reviewed options and procedures for my cataract surgery, be he also allayed any fears I had regarding the surgery. My vision is improving daily and I anticipate the same outcome for my other eye after surgery next week. I wish to thank Dr. Parekh for using his God-given talent and abilities so carefully and expertly.

My experience with Dr. Parekh was all that I could hope for. Professional ,caring and on time. Same is true for all of the nurses and other people involved in my Parekh experience. I would also like to make sure that Dr. Brown and his staff are included in my kudos. Thanks to all. Chip Ward (George)

Dr. Parekh was very professional and caring. His attention to detail and my concerns was very reassuring to me. He took time with me and went over options and answered all my questions. I really appreciated that and also that if anything came up I would be able to reach him or someone from the office. He explained things to me in terms that I could understand and wasn't condescending. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

At first, I found his gung-ho "we can do anything you want" attitude off-putting and I was distrustful, but the surgery itself was completely smooth and painless, and the results have been marvelous. I strongly recommend him as a surgeon.

in Kane, PA |
I had advance stage of Glaucoma with very high pressure. He did everything possible to get the pressure under control. That was 2 years ago. 2 months ago the pressure was 11 and 12 on both eyes. I also had cataract on one eye. I highly recommend him.
Rockville, MD |
Awful. Wanted to do unnecessary procedures. Had to have my mothers copay in cash before he would even take the time to speak to her. Rude. Do not recommend. Money hungry.
