Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

Dr. Cooper was excellent and very comprehensive at both examining and explaining the problems with my eyes. Staff were good and seemed competent. They allowed me to take home some glasses to compare the look with my wife. All in all a very easy and straightforward experience.

Overall Rating

I have been a patient of Dr. Cooper for almost 20 years since we moved to Escondido. He is very competent and professional. I had radial keratotomy(RK) surgery done back in 1990 by a surgeon in SD and originally saw him just for follow up. But, over the last 6-7 years, my close-up vision started to get worse. Treating/prescribing for eyes that have had surgery can be challenging, but Dr. Cooper has helped me with progressive lenses glasses and more recently with converting to progressive contact lenses. His office has a website where you can schedule an appointment online and you get a text the day before reminding you of your appointment. I have been very happy with the care I receive at Dr. Cooper's office and highly recommend him
