Run, don’t walk here for your eyeball needs!
I’ve been coming here for years and I’ve only ever had great experiences. The staff is exceptionally courteous and have always patiently gone over different options and prices with me until we find the best solution. (My insurance typically only covers either glasses or contacts, so we run the numbers to see which one will make the most sense to pay out-of-pocket), as well as look into different types of lenses, etc.)
Dr. Marc Van Hoose is so kind and pleasant. I’ve had negative experiences with doctors who seemed rushed, brusque, disinterested, etc., but Dr. Marc always takes the time to discuss all of my concerns, offer helpful suggestions, and generally make me feel like he genuinely cares about my well-being.
The office is bright, clean, attractive, and stocked with up-to-date technology. The process is efficient and pleasant. I highly recommend these folks!

This is the first place I’ve gone to since I’ve made my move down to San Diego and I won’t be looking nice anywhere else. Friendly staff, very neat and welcoming office. They gave me all of my options before we decided what I walked out with and I left with trial contacts on the way and new glasses in the works. Couldn’t be more excited!
Dr. Marc Van Hoose is terrific as is the entire staff. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and friendly – taking plenty of time to answer all patient questions and explain each test and procedure. The office offers the latest in eye examination technology – so exams are accurate, efficient and comfortable. I highly recommend their services.
Everyone was pleasant and professional. I deeply appreciated the depth of explanation about my vision by Dr Ackroyd. lAs a senior o\and on a limited income, I deeply appreciated the willingness to only charge for one lens since I only have vision in one eye… No one eles I asked was willing to do that… although I was coming to Dr Ackroyd anyway.. just gotta shop arouond. I have gone to Dr Ackroyd for many years and have always appreciated his kindness and gentleness. I felt happy when he explained the advantages of my small pupil!
Although I allowed myself to be frustrated by the computer and having to fill out another history, my attitude shifted as Dr Ackroyd interacted and explained my options.
If you are looking for an awesome optometrist, here is where I would recommend.
I’ve been going here for over 10 yrs. I moved to orange county 8 yrs ago I still make a trip back just to come see them! Great Drs and very friendly and helpful staff. I even have co workers that go to SD to see them.
By far the best Optometrist office I have been to in 35 yrs! Dr Patrick fixed my vision better than any other Optometrist I had tried in the past and the office, eyewear selection and staff are top notch.
