Our Practice

Our optometric practice opened in Mission Viejo in 1992. Our longevity and success has been a result of word-of-mouth referrals, and a constant quest for excellence in patient service and satisfaction. By staying current through medical continuing education, staff training, new technology, and the latest in optical lenses, eyewear, and contact lenses, we hope to provide you with the finest eye care available.
