Esteemed San Diego Surgeon Joins NVISION Eye Centers

Leading LASIK and Cataract Surgery Provider Welcomes Dr. Jack Weiss

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2015) - NVISION Eye Centers, one of the country's premier providers of LASIK and cataract surgery, is pleased to welcome veteran eye surgeon Jack Weiss, M.D. to the NVISION family of eye care centers. Dr. Weiss will partner with Dr. Mihir Parikh in further developing and strengthening NVISION's La Jolla-based refractive and cataract practice, which is the official LASIK center for the San Diego Chargers and the San Diego State University Athletics Department. 

"Dr. Weiss is one of the most respected, experienced and skillful eye surgeons in California," says James Pereyra, president of NVISION Eye Centers. "We are delighted he has chosen to join our outstanding team of surgeons and to share his expertise. As we continue to provide the most advanced options and treatments that correct vision and improve the quality of life for our patients, we look forward to the unique perspective Dr. Weiss will bring to NVISION."

Prior to joining NVISION, Dr. Weiss spent the bulk of his career leading San Diego-area practices, and has proven to be an integral member of the San Diego ophthalmology community. He is a former president of the San Diego Eye Bank, and has served as chief of ophthalmology for Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group, Sharp Memorial Hospital and Scripps Encinitas Hospital. In addition to performing thousands of cataract and refractive surgeries, Dr. Weiss was among the few select FDA investigators for the recently-approved, groundbreaking KAMRA Inlay procedure for the treatment of presbyopia -- a condition caused by aging eyes that affects some 114 million Americans over the age of 40.

"My arrival at NVISION will offer new opportunities in a field that continues to make great strides," say Dr. Weiss, who will begin practicing with NVISION La Jolla on July 1, 2015. "As one of the few eye centers in California approved and with the appropriate system and technology to perform the groundbreaking KAMRA inlay procedure, NVISION will also afford me the opportunity to offer my patients this exciting new treatment option."
