We are excited to welcome back Dr. Tammy Huang to our office. She worked for us Pre-Optometry School and returns working Fridays and most Saturdays after graduating from New England College of Optometry.

Update on Vision Service Plan Programs! $20 extra frame allowance on Marchon and Altair frames.

We are excited to have Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography SD-OCT available to you. SD-OCT or OCT technology enables us to view the Cornea, Retina or Optic Nerve as a 3D image, allowing us to better assess the health of your eyes. Please ask us about a I-Wellness scan for you!

We are PLEASED to be the first practice in the San Francisco Bay Area to offer Zeiss i.Scription. i.Scription allows us to optimize your eye glass prescription by reducing "optical" aberrations (both "low and high" order) particularly at night. The result is the ability to customize your prescription to achieve a wider field of view and sharper vision. Ask us more about Zeiss i.Scription at your next visit.

Recent studies have shown KALE to be a great source of nutrition for prevention of macular degeneration and cataracts. If you would like to share a RECIPE FOR KALE please email us at and we will love to share it with all of you.


I am saddened yet wanted to let those who have been with us since the "Haight Street" days, the passing of Dr. Robert Chew. He was my mentor and partner who I will always be grateful for teaching me to be a better doctor. He will be missed.
