I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Farid Eghbali over the last 10 years. Over those years, Farid has helped treat hundreds of mutual patients in an outstanding and excellent manner. He is a consummate professional providing thorough and skilled care using sound judgement and state of the art techniques to evaluate and treat a variety of eye ailments. He provides primary vision care ranging from sight testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a variety of eye diseases. He often cares for and manages some of the most difficult patients in my practice. He presents with excellent interpersonal communication skills, especially as it relates to his bedsite manner. Above all, his ethics are beyond reproach. He is a well-established clinician in our community and is always well received by my patients, as well as by my physician colleagues. I consider him to be one of the finest clinicians that I’ve had the priviledge of working with. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dr. Farid Eghbali for your eyecare needs.

I want just to say how grateful I am to Dr Khourosh Eghbali. I had very bad cataracts on my both eyes, but on my left eye I was completely blind. I couldn’t read, watch TV, use a computer. Dr.K.Eghbali was the one who gave me a chance to live my life of full value. He performed 2 surgeries on my both eyes, now I have “Restore” lenses, my vision is 20/20. Also, would like to mention the staff who was very considerate.

Thank you again Dr Kourosh Eghbali.

Your grateful patient Lidiya Babayants

It was the best decision I ever made.

On my very first visit, Dr. Eghbali and his staff were incredibly warm and welcoming. When I explained my past experiences and struggles with Keratoconus and the numerous doctors I’d worked with, their genuine interest and confidence that they could help me lifted years of worry off my shoulders. Most important, for the first time in my life, I am not only seeing clearly, but I am wearing contacts that feel like nothing.

The absolute best!!! Thank you Dr. Eghbali and East Valley Eye Center!

Dear Dr. Eghbali,

A donation was made in your honor to Chabad of Burbank by one of your patients in gratitude for a great surgery that you performed.

Thank you so much for spreading the good vibe about Chabad and I look forward to meeting you in person.

Sincerely,

I have worn glasses and contacts for almost 20 years and decided recently that I wanted to do LASIK. My husband was the one recommending Dr Farid Eghbali …Throughout the whole process he has been so thorough and knowledgeable and I felt that he helped me make a very informed decision. His brother Kourosh Eghbali was the one who performed the actual procedure, and he did an awesome job. The next day my vision was 20/20 and all my numbers were perfect.

Wow! I just picked up my glasses and contact lenses from East Valley Eye Center. I have been told in the past that I would be unable to wear contact lenses. A friend at Warner Brothers referred me to Dr. Farid Eghbali, today I am wearing comfortable contact lenses and seeing great. The Staff at this office was efficient and friendly….Two thumbs up for Dr Eghbali and East Valley Eye Center.

I have been a patient at East Valley Eye Center for more than 20 years. I have always received excellent care and polite and courteous treatment. It seems as though all the women that work there really want to make your visit pleasant… I always feel comfortable when I leave the office knowing the care I just received was excellent.

Dr. Farid Eghbali is wonderful…He took the time to answer my questions; he didn’t seem rushed or distracted… As it turned out, I needed glasses, and I’m now the first-time owner of a pair of cute frames, which were recommended to me by the optician. I no longer have eye strain and headaches at work. Praise God.

My experience with East Valley Eye Center has been exceptional. I have been going to their offices for the past 15 or more years…I can’t imagine going anywhere else for my eye examinations and my prescription and frames.

My entire family goes to this practice. I’ve been so impressed with how patient, fun and creative Dr. Eghbali is while examining my children. I also appreciate the fact that they have a waiting area just for kids. This takes some of the pressure off of trying to keep the kids quiet in a doctor’s office.

Dear Drs. Eghbali (and staff!)

What a ride! Thank you for being there for me and holding my hand through a fabulous experience! I’ve always been impressed by your level of care, professionalism and compassion and this time was no different…You will always have my highest recommendation and regard.

See you soon!

A happy testimonial from a grateful patient.

Thank you, Dr. Eghbali, for your expertise, your professional manner and reassurances respecting my recent surgery at your capable hands. My initial fears were immediately allayed being greeted as I was by your very competent staff, all professional, all keenly aware of my trepidation when first entering your establishment. Not ever having had surgery ever, I was fearful to say the least, but in minutes I was made comfortable, talked to and calmed. A very restful few hours prepared me for the procedure of removing my very dense cataract. The subsequent operation went skillfully and swiftly, and from a 2300 sight deficiency to a 20-20 one was almost instantaneous. A great and miraculous result; no pain, no blood, no negatives, all particularly brilliant.

Thank you

I am so glad to have a wonderful doctor in Farid Eghbali. He really knows what he is doing and even teaches at UCLA….If you want quality eye care any of the doctors in this office will give you what you need.

…I saw, Dr. Farid Eghbali. I had never been here, and it’s always kinda scary walking into a new eye doctor, but he made me relax and feel very comfortable. He has good sense of humor, and he is very personable.

I visited East Valley Eye Center today and can’t wait to go back! The staff there was friendly, helpful, informative and seemed like they truly enjoyed their time with me. Dr. Eghbali gave me his full attention and really listened to me and my needs….East Valley Eye Center deserves more than 5 stars!

I have seen both doctors and they are both great doctors with a wonderful staff….You only get two eyes and they do not grow back so we must take care of them and I would not want anyone other than them to take care of my eyes.

Jim C.

Sylmar, CA

After wearing glasses and contacts for 20 years I was ready to take the plunge and go for LASIK surgery… Dr. Farid Eghbali recommended that we take a few extra weeks to monitor my eyes to double and triple check that I was a good candidate for the surgery…That really wow-ed me since it was the complete opposite of the other money hungry doctors I had met with. I appreciated his honesty and integrity and knowing that he was looking out for my best interest long term…. I had the surgery done and was immediately thrilled with the results… just got back from my two year checkup and I still have 20/15 vision!

I had an emergency: it was late night I called the office and got the doctor on call…I explained my problem, he asked me to meet him at the office. The next day I got a call to see how I was doing by one of the staff. I am grateful for their care, great office to go and get your eyes checked.

Wow! What a wonderful eye exam by Dr Farid Eghbali and his Technician. I picked up my glasses yesterday and this is the best vision i have had in years.

The staff made me feel as if I had know them for years. The Doctor was very careful and informed me of several things I did not know before.

I am looking forward to my next eye exam and I would surely send my family and friends to the eye care center .

Dr. Farid Egbali is such a caring doctor. recently I had a very frightening experience with my eye, and he and his staff spent 3 hours testing my eye, and then found me a very good Neurologist, Dr. Faisal to assist in my continued care.

When I needed to go on a business trip, he called my husband to constantly check on my well being.
