"Share the Vision" Party

party winnerIn the fall of 2009 in celebration of our ten year anniversary in Rockford, New Vision Laser Center invited all of our LASIK patients to a “Share the Vision” party. We had a drawing for many prizes including the grand prize trip for two to the Riviera Maya! Every LASIK patient who attended the party had their name entered in the drawing, and every time the patient “shared the vision” and referred someone else who had LASIK, their name was entered again. Tina H., pictured with her husband, had referred six other patients, and won the grand prize!

NFL’s Larry English chooses New Vision

Larry EnglishLarry English was a star football player at Northern Illinois University and the number one draft pick of the San Diego Chargers in the NFL.   Before reporting to pre-season camp Larry wanted to optimize his vision on the field to improve his game, so he chose Dr. Vakharia at New Vision Laser Center for his LASIK Vision Correction.  “Dr. Vakharia explained everything so thoroughly that it made me real comfortable,” said Larry, who was very happy with his results.  “Now my vision is corrected so I don’t need to worry about it.”  We wish Larry all the best this season in the NFL.
