Optometrist in Lafayette, California
Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Our Lafayette eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Our optometrists in Lafayette take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

After practicing Optometry in Lamorinda for the past 34 years, I have decided it is time to retire. As of August this year, I will no longer be seeing patients at Lamorinda Optometry. I am very grateful for all the years I have practiced Optometry in Lamorinda, and thankful for the wonderful patients I have had the opportunity to serve.
I’m excited to be able to spend more time traveling, sailing, biking and most of all to share more time with my wife, children and grandchildren. I am also saddened to not be able to continue to see my patients and care for their eye health and vision. Thank you for the trust that you have placed in my hands over the years, I have enjoyed taking care of your eyes and getting to know you.
Dr. Nathan Orr was my associate for over 7 years and purchased my practice in 2014. I am confident that Dr. Orr will continue to practice Optometry with the highest regards for your eye health and vision needs and that you will have as much confidence in him as you have shown to me all of these years.
