For Dr. Pirnazar, complexity is another word for “challenge.” Finding solutions to complex eye issues is his specialty, and he has a long-standing success record to show it.

As part of his extensive experience with cataract surgery, Dr. Pirnazar implants lifestyle intraocular lenses such as the Symfony, ReStor, Tecnis multifocal and Crystalens. He also specializes in Toric intraocular lens implants to treat astigmatism. Hundreds of doctors from multiple specialties have trusted Dr. Pirnazar to perform surgeries on their patients, friends, family, and even themselves.

Dr. Pirnazar was one of the first surgeons in California to perform laser-assisted cataract surgery. He has been featured on the nationally broadcast show “The Doctors” on CBS as well as “American Health Journal” on PBS. He uses ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) during cataract surgery to ensure that the correct intraocular lens is being implanted. Additionally, Dr. Pirnazar performs corneal cross-linking and intacs for the treatment of keratoconus.

Dr. Pirnazar is a board-certified Ophthalmologist and received his medical degree with honors from the University of Illinois, Chicago School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis, where he also served as Chief Director of University Eye Service. He continued his education with fellowship training in corneal and refractive surgery at the University of California, Irvine, where he also served as an assistant professor for ten years.

Dr. Pirnazar’s extensive experience in both surgery and pharmaceutical trials has made him a sought-after expert among doctors in the field of ophthalmology, and he has published articles in respected medical journals, including the American Journal of Ophthalmology and Ophthalmology Times.

In 2017, Dr. Pirnazar and his partners at NVISION were selected to be the official team ophthalmologists for the Los Angeles Chargers.

When he isn’t working, Dr. Pirnazar enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, playing tennis and watching NFL Football on Sundays.

This place will treat you wonderfully.

Everything about my experience at the Ontario branch of NVISION was great. Excellent doctors led me through each step and the supporting staff was always willing to answer any questions. On top of all of that, I am able to see perfectly without any glasses today. I had Dr. Pirnazar, he was fantastic and takes all the steps necessary to make your experience a positive one. If you are thinking LASIK, then this place will treat you wonderfully.

I would recommend Dr Pirnazar without any reservation.

Absolutely amazing results!!! I was legally blind in one eye and had cataract surgery with Dr. Pirnazar and 2 days later I was 20/20. He and his staff could not have been better, an absolutely wonderful experience. I would recommend Dr. Pirnazar without any reservation. I would give him a 10 star rating if possible.
