Alamo Optometry

(As appeared in Alamo Today, May 2009, pg. 25)

We have had such a great response to our monthly columns so I thought it would be nice to give the residents of Alamo an idea of who we are and what we do. My articles to date have focused on conditions and issues that I see daily in my practice, but what I am finding is that our patients are interested in forming long-lasting relationships in addition to receiving quality eye care and products.
Alamo Optometry is in the Alamo Commons building (next to the old Yardbirds), and has been here since 1992. It was formerly known as Diablo Optometry when Dr. Kirschbaum started the practice. Our office is and always has been a small and professional practice that values patient care and service over commercialism. We do comprehensive eye exams, LASIK pre- and post-exams, all types of contact lens fittings, including daily disposables and multifocal lenses, and medical eye care which include diagnosing and treating eye infections, allergies, and dry eyes. Patients of all ages are welcome to our office. All of our staff, including myself, has children; so we are comfortable with even our youngest patients. We are committed to serving the community and making sure everyone has an enjoyable experience. To that extent, we follow-up with our patients after they receive their glasses to see how they are doing, and remind them that free lifetime adjustments and on-site repairs are welcome on any of their glasses.
I have now owned the practice for almost 2 years. I truly enjoy the office, my staff, and the residents of Alamo. Since I graduated 9 years ago, I have gained a lot of clinical knowledge to apply to my school work to offer a well-rounded doctor-patient relationship. I believe patients should be in control of their care in conjunction with their doctor. I offer solutions and recommendation to your vision problems; your vision and ocular health are my main concerns.
Our optician Robert has years of clinical experience in frame and lens selection, along with frame adjustments and repairs. He can adjust and repair most frames in the office. Robert and I work together to make sure you have a frame that is both fashionable and functional in that it will accommodate your prescription and type of lens that you need. I am fortunate to be able to work with an optician that is very knowledgeable and skilled like Robert.
Debbie is our front-desk receptionist and optometric assistant. She is very personable and eager to help anyone who needs an appointment, frame adjustment and selection, and ordering and dispensing glasses and contacts. Debbie has been with the office for over 1 year and patients appreciate her demeanor in assisting patients in the office or on the phone. Her goal is to make sure every patient has a good experience and their vision needs are successfully fulfilled.
Our new website, has information about the staff and office. We have a blog that is updated monthly with all of our articles in Alamo Today. There is information about the services we provide and some of the frames brands we carry in the office. In addition, we recently added a link on the website to enable our patients with a valid prescription to order contacts at your convenience instead of having to call the office. We have late office hours on Thursdays and are available on select Saturdays by appointment to accommodate our patients’ busy schedules. We all look forward to continuing to serve the vision and eye care needs of the local community by upholding our reputation of outstanding service and vision care.

Dr. K. at Alamo Optometry is your hometown eye doctor for outstanding service, vision care, and designer eyewear. He can be reached at 925-820-6622 or visit his office at 3201 Danville Blvd., Suite 165 in Alamo.
