Favorite eye care product:  One-day disposable contact lenses.  I started wearing contact lenses at 11 years old, when contact lenses were worn for an entire year (or more).  Contact lenses were super expensive for just one pair, plus cleaning was tedious.  Today, I wear a fresh pair everyday, and enjoy crisp vision without the maintenance.

Jessica Garcia

I enjoy assisting patients in choosing the right frames and lenses. Meeting new people everyday is exciting and interesting. I like forming connections with them and look forward to seeing them next time. I want patients to leave happy and with the best care.

Memorable Challenge in Life: A memorable challenge of mine was graduating college as I am a first-generation college graduate.

Best Advice To Eye Care Patients: The best advice I can offer to patients is to definitely get a coating on your lenses. The scratch resistance is helpful as my lenses have many scratches and it can be hard to see through them.

Favorite Color: Purple

Favorite Eye Care Product: Contact lenses are my favorite eye care product. I prefer wearing them in summer and having non-prescription sunglasses. It is much better than wearing my glasses in the California heat.

Amanda Tran

I really enjoy interacting with patients and getting to know them. It’s very inspiring to be able to help improve their vision and their overall quality of life. We live in such a beautiful world that I think everyone should be able to see clearly.

Memorable Challenge in Life: Tending to my moms garden while she was out of the country. It was something I’ve never done without her guidance, but once I got comfortable doing it on my own I found to really enjoy it!

Best Advice to Eye Care Patients: Wear sunglasses! Not only are they stylish, but they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and small debris that could get in your eyes.

Favorite Color: Purple

Favorite Eye Care Product: Refresh Tears Eyedrops. I always keep an emergency bottle in my purse for on the go.

Favorite Movie: Avatar – The Way of Water

Memorable Challenge in Life: A memorable challenge in my life was learning how to ride my bike.

Best Advice To Eye Care Patients: The best advice I can offer to patients is to be wary of how often you rub your eyes. Oftentimes we do it without realizing which can unintentionally place bacteria in our eyes. The less often you touch your eyes, the less often bacteria and other germs can be introduced.

Favorite Color: Cyan

Favorite Eye Care Product: My favorite eye care product has to be Ortho-K which is a type of contact lens that reshapes the cornea overnight so there will be no need to wear contacts during the daytime.
