An optometrist is a health care professional who has earned a degree of Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) after completing a course of study at an approved college of optometry. Optometrists begin their training with completion of a Bachelor's degree program at an undergraduate college followed by four years at an accredited college of optometry. Learn more about our optometrists Dr. Jaime Gonzalez and Dr. Hoa Nguyen.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options, and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing, and treating potential vision problems.
