We're Open - with New Safety Precautions

As shelter-in-place restrictions are lifted, we are taking the following steps to ensure your safety and the safety of our team:

  • All patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Patients are scheduled to avoid overlap in the waiting room. Patients should come to their appointment alone. If the patient needs assistance, let us know when you make the appointment.
  • Masks or face coverings are required for anyone entering our office, except for children under 2 years of age.
  • Common areas and exam rooms are disinfected between each patient.
  • Office layout has been adjusted to allow for physical distancing.
  • Staff are supplied with personal protective equipment, including masks and gloves.
  • Temperature and symptom checks will be done for all patients and staff upon entering the office.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk for use by patients and staff. For your health and safety, we ask that you use hand sanitizer upon entering the office, and again before leaving.

We appreciate your understanding and compliance with these safety measures. Our team is committed to providing you with high-quality medical care whether in person, via video visit or over the phone. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to our eye care office.

Here we offer routine vision care services, complete eye evaluations, prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses, and diagnoses and treatment of eye diseases.

In addition, we offer an extra level of service for patients with conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy including laser and other surgical procedures.

Even if you do not wear corrective lenses, regular eye exams are an important part of preventive health care. We can also give you tips on how to care for your eyes, deal with dry eyes and eye allergies, and protect them from sun damage.

After twenty years serving the Mission and Noe Valley communities, we are now located in Lower Pacific Heights. Come visit our new office conveniently located near the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center and the UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion. We look forward continuing to provide you and your family with quality vision care.
