Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

All I can say is that I usually HATE going to the optometrist, but Dr. Peterson and 20/20 Vision wasn't bad at all. In fact, they were fantastic! I've been wearing glasses/contacts since the second grade, and I wanted a doctor that not only was experienced but that could also help me with the idea of lasik. The whole laser-to-the-eyeball-thing really freaks me out. But everyone there was really helpful and informative and eventually put me in touch with TLC in La Jolla for a lasik consultation. I have my consultation next week, so more to come!

I love this place. The staff is amazing. Every single lady I've dealt with has been nothing but helpful. The Dr is so nice as well. Takes his time and is great with kids. Not to mention the selection of frames is huge! Got gucci sun glasses and gucci reading glasses. Whenever I needed something they were so quick and efficient. Definitely give them a try if you're in the east county area!!

I can't say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Peterson! Dr. Peterson is very professional and helpful! I had to go in for a routine check-up and he was efficient and knowledgeable. I have contacts and the cutest pair of glasses that he helped pick out. They are Michael Kors frames that are very stylish. He has a ton of glasses to choose from and his assistants are extremely helpful as well! I will definitely go back to Dr. Peterson for all my eye exams.

Overall Rating

Dr. Peterson and his staff are wonderful people and very helpful. My sight was getting a little blurry so I went in and ended up getting fitted for some contacts. With these babies on I can see the seams on a baseball coming at me better than ever! Definitely recommend you go see Dr. Peterson because he has the experience and expertise to help everyone.

This was a great experience from initial greeting, exam and glass selection. Definitely went beyond my expectations and I would recommend Dr Peterson for future service.

Very friendly, fast and helpful. I will definitely be back next year and would recommend to my friends and family. It only took three days to get my glasses back, not even a week!
