“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.
