Rancho Santa Margarita Optometrist with World Class Results

Serving Rancho Santa Margarita,
Coto De Caza, and surrounding communities since 1991!

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website.  If you’re a current patient, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to fulfill your eye care needs.  If you’re a new visitor, we look forward to meeting you and exploring the various options available for correcting or enhancing your vision.

When you visit our office, your eye health is our top priority. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized care you deserve using only the latest, most innovative techniques in eye care. We offer general eye examinations, contact lenses, eyeglasses, glaucoma testing, emergency medical treatment, and Zeiss Individual 2 I-scription Lenses. Dr. Andersen also co-manages with the finest surgeons for LASIK and other ocular procedures.

Dr. Andersen was the first Optometrist in the nation to offer CIMT, Carotid Artery Intima Thickness ultrasound in detecting cardiovascular disease in her patients.  Not only can she and her associates look to see damage to blood vessels in the retina, now they can look for atherosclerosis and plaques, potentially damaging the heart.  These changes are reversible and Dr. Andersen is able to give her patients a report card with nutritional information designed to educate and create positive change for a healthier lifestyle. You can find more information under our Videos tab. 

Part of our commitment to serving our patients is to provide them with useful information to help them make more informed decisions about the various treatments that are available today.
