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.
What Our Patients Are Saying...
My work changed my vision coverage and so I went looking for a doctor in our new vision plan. Tried for 2 years and wasn’t happy with any of the doctors. The exams were short and not as thorough as the Lamorinda office. The Lamorinda office checked in with me on a yearly basis as a follow up and I found myself going back to see Dr. Baker and paying out of pocket. My husband and I both use Dr. Baker and Dr. Orr and are very happy with the service.
I have been a patient of Dr. Richard Baker for over 30 years and have always received excellent vision care from both he and his staff. I have recommended his practice to several people I know and will continue to do so.
Definitely would recommend Dr. Orr at Lamorinda Optometry. He is very professional easy to talk to, and explains and answers any of my questions about my eye health. The staff is very pleasant and efficient. I was able to get an appointment in a very reasonable amount of time with options that were convenient for my work week.
My husband and I both see Dr. Baker, and think he is exceptional. He has a calm demeanor, is personable, knowledgeable, and really takes time to ensure he performs a thorough exam and answers all questions. His staff is always very pleasant, professional, and welcoming. Highly recommend him and his office!
I wish I could give these folks 6 stars. I’m aware that some reviews may sound a bit lofty, however, when I say that Lamorinda Optometry changed my life, I really mean it. They have been my optometry of choice for almost 30 years and every time I go they get better and better.

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?”
Hello 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.
