More about Max Parikh

Dr Parikh was dual fellowship trained in refractive surgery/anterior segment surgery and board- certified for over a decade.

He has now performed tens of thousands of refractive procedures and his impressive list of patients include numerous NFL players and coaches. He specializes in LASIK, PRK, and cataract surgery with the use of lasers, high technology lens implants and corneal inlays.

An award-winning surgeon, Dr. Parikh was honored with the Laurence Mehlman Prize and the University of California Regents Scholar Award during his four years at UC Irvine.

Dr. Parikh teaches ophthalmology and the concepts of refractive surgery to optometrists and ophthalmologists on a regional and national level, and has been published in many medical journals and newspapers.

He is on the advisory board or serves as a consultant for multiple medical and health care companies. Most of all, Dr. Parikh cherishes the time he spends with his family and living an active outdoor San Diego lifestyle—while wearing his non-prescription sunglasses, of course!
