Dear Patients,


            After 42 years of practicing Optometry, I have decided to retire as of June 1st. It’s been a great run. I have truly enjoyed working with each and every one of you. I greatly valued the trust and confidence that you placed in me to deliver the eyecare to you, and in return I gave each and every one of you my very best and enjoyed every moment of it! Thank you all!

            Wait, don’t go, there’s more! I’m turning the reins over to a younger, very capable Optometrist who will be able to continue with your eye care needs. Her name is Dr. Sharon Villa and is home grown from the Bay Area. My capable staff, Connie and Stacie, will continue on as always in the office and I will still be working in the office 2 days per week for the foreseeable future to facilitate the transition.

            Now a few words about Dr. Villa-

Dr. Villa is a caring and wholehearted professional Optometrist who enjoys providing the most optimal care at a more personal level for patients of all ages. Dr. Villa completed her Doctorate of Optometry from Western University of Health Sciences College of Optometry in Southern CA. Her extensive clinical training emphasized in specialty contact lenses including keratoconus and Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) and the prevention of nearsightedness. Her routine eyecare visits include management of diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. Dr. Villa is board certified to diagnose and treat glaucoma and many other ocular pathologies. She is also an active member of the American Optometric Association.


Thank you for all the wonderful years,

Dr. Carl Hirsch

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Hirsch for nearly 20 years.  We don't have that kind of consistency with many other professionals.  His office has a great location, he and his staff are friendly and always provide great service.  Our eyes remain in good health!  If you're looking for a true professional, look no further.  I highly recommend Dr. Hirsch and his office
