Nimesh J. Pathak, MD

Nimesh J. Pathak, MD is the founder and president of Lucent Vision, a private eye clinic located in Long Beach, California. He has been practicing in the Southern California area since 2010. Dr. Pathak chose to be an eye surgeon to give people the freedom that comes with clear vision. The greatest motivation for Dr. Pathak is the knowledge that each of his patients has been empowered to pursue his/her work, hobbies, and family activities to their maximum potential.

Lucent Vision was launched in 2016 as a smaller and more patient-centered alternative to the larger healthcare conglomerations that are beginning to dominate healthcare. Dr. Pathak believes in spending the time needed to understand the needs of each individual patient. He builds strong relationships with his patients, and he strongly believes in bringing compassion back to healthcare. As a perfectionist, he is committed to putting in the time needed for education, training, and practice to deliver the best outcomes to his patients.

During his refractive surgery fellowship, Dr. Pathak learned first-hand the significance of giving patients clear vision without glasses or contact lenses. After consistently hearing the large positive impacts that refractive surgery had on these patients’ lives Dr. Pathak has committed himself to master the art and science of refractive surgery. Dr. Pathak graduated with honors from UC Berkeley before attending Chicago Medical School. After completing his residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, he completed a fellowship in refractive surgery at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. He practices general ophthalmology with an emphasis on dry eye disease, corneal transplantation, refractive cataract surgery, and corneal refractive surgery. He also has a keen interest in giving back to the community. He participates as a physician volunteer for the California Lions in Sight to help perform vision screenings in underserved communities. He has also been a frequent speaker for local senior programs at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and the City of Seal Beach.

Dr. Pathak has been blessed with an amazing wife and two beautiful daughters. He lives in Seal Beach, California and loves to cook, travel, play the guitar, and cheer for his Los Angeles Lakers.
