At Lamorinda We Care for Your Eyes

Our mission is to provide all of your family members with the highest quality eye health care, outstanding service and the finest products that are currently available.

For over 30 years, unlike “big box stores” our emphasis is on the individual, creating a relationship to ensure that all their eyecare needs are met.

The Lafayette eye doctors at Lamorinda Optometry believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Doctors Orr and Baker know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up.

With an office in Lafayette, Lamorinda Optometry also serves the residents of Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Concord. Schedule an appointment with an optometrist to see how we can help you get the best prescription for your eyes.

Q&A with Dr. Nathan Orr

Dr. Nathan Orr Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Ian M. Asks: “My father recently had cataract surgery. I am in my late 40’s, do I need to be worried?”

Doctor photoHello Ian, this is a question I receive all the time, and the answer is an emphatic no! Cataracts, although a scary sounding word, are a normal change that every human being will encounter if they live long enough. Inside the eye, right behind the colored iris is the crystalline lens. When we are born, that lens is usually perfectly clear. Over the course of our lives, the lens gradually and very slowly gets less clear. Typically by our 70’s, we will be able to see some haziness in the lens. If that lens gets hazy enough, it starts to affect our vision. Think of the windshield on your car gradually getting dirty. You can drive around with a dirty windshield for quite a while, but eventually it gets to the point where you just can’t see clearly. The good news is that cataracts are easily fixed with a simple surgical procedure. The other benefit many people do not realize is that when cataract surgery is done, the vision is also corrected and many patients do no need to wear glasses after their procedure. Thanks for the question! Dr. Nathan Orr, O.D.
