NFL Kicker Derek Dimke chooses New Vision for LASIK surgery

Derek Dimke is the most accurate placekicker in University of Illinois history and is currently under contract with the New Orleans Saints in the NFL. He’s a Rockford native and he chose Dr. Vakharia at New Vision for his LASIK surgery when he was home from training camp. “New Vision did an excellent job of sitting me down and touched in great detail about every possible scenario... I had the surgery done, went home, slept for a few hours, woke up, and I could see!” said Derek. Click below to see Derek’s video testimonial and schedule your free LASIK consultation today.

“Share the Vision” Party

In 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 below with her husband, had referred six other patients, and won the grand prize!

Everyone had so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event. Our LASIK patients are eagerly awaiting this year’s party, and referring their friends and family for LASIK to increase their chances to win a trip to the Riviera Maya!



We are very excited to now offer LATISSE at Brightbill/Ericson Eye Associates New Vision Laser Center. LATISSE is the first FDA-approved treatment for inadequate eyelashes. It is applied to the eyelashes growing them longer, fuller and darker.

Our ophthalmologists and optometrists can perform your initial evaluation and follow-up evaluation to insure that you are using it properly and are getting the results you desire, and LATISSE can be purchased in our optical shop.

Contact our office today to schedule an appointment, and visit www.latisse.com for more information.


NFL’s Larry English chooses New Vision

Larry 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.
