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."
