Family Optometric Associates is locally owned and operated serving the San Diego, California area since 2015. We are located within the San Diego Navy Exchange.

When you visit us for an eye exam, our optometrists, Dr. Cassandra Thompson and Dr. Yasmin Kouchak will evaluate your visual health. This includes general eye examinations for correction of farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism. The doctors also diagnose, manage and treat diseases and disorders of the visual system. Thorough examinations of the external and internal structure of the eyes are performed to evaluate for many ocular conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinal disorders, and systemic disorders including hypertension and diabetes.
