Liz

optician

I’ve been in the field of ophthalmology/optometry for 7 years. I enjoy bringing out my passion for fashion in the selecting the best frame for our patients needs. I am a food connoisseur. I am also a coffee addict always looking for the next best coffee joint. I love my Cali teams so much I had to name my dog after the G.O.A.T Kobe. GO LAKERS!!!

Aline

Optometric Assistant

I have lived in Orange County my whole life. I recently graduated from UCI with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. I originally wanted to be an engineer, but realized it was not for me, and am thrilled to have found optometry instead! During my free time, I like to read, study languages, and visit friends and family.
