Our optometrists are clinically trained to practice the broadest scope of primary eye care and certified to diagnose and treat most eye disease, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, foreign body trauma and eye infections, as well as perform Ortho-K/CRT (Corneal Refractive Therapy) and Laser Vision Correction Consultations. Our office is fully equipped with all the latest eye care technology; we even provide complimentary fundus photos of the retina to all patients to monitor for any subtle changes on an annual basis.

Lawrence Y. Chin, OD

To all my loyal patients,
I have reach the threshold of retirement after 47yrs of private practice.  It was certainly enjoyable to have such loving patients, and catch up to your life events of the past year.  The term “family practice” really felt like you were family to me! It certainly feels great to know that perhaps, our office had made a difference in our community.
The next steps will be scary, but probably fun. Will be doing a lot of traveling and living outside the bay area 50% of the time. Initially, it will be weird  not to show up at the office, but I’m sure I can adjust.
With all my fondest wishes,
Dr Chin
