Right after the McDonald, you will see our signage shown here as seen from street level. Turn in and we will be at the end cap.

This an overdue review for Dr. Nguyen and his wonderful staff. Always very friendly, courteous and professional. I always try to get my exam yearly due to a lot of working on the computer and my eyes get quite a workout; Dr. Nguyen and his staff, David, are always so helpful and their recommendations are on spot. Definitely would recommends for friends and family members.

Such a great experience! Everyone was so nice and the appointment was quick but thorough. My contact lenses came in after a week and they texted me to let me know I could pick them up. Highly recommend!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Nguyen for 2 years and he is THE BEST! Even after relocating from SD to OC, I refuse to see anyone else but Dr. Nguyen and the crew at Clairemont Optometry. I trust them with my eyes closed!!!

Thank you Dr. Nguyen & Team for caring for my eyes! I am happy to have found a local place, a great atmosphere with caring professionals.

Dr. Bruce Nguyen and all of the staff at Clairemont Optometry are great at providing a very comprehensive eye exam in a friendly way. Dr. Bruce Nguyen is very helpful when explaining anything about your eye exam. The office is very nice, and they have lots of styles of frames to choose from if you're looking for glasses. I highly recommend them if you need your eyes checked and want to work with people who are very helpful and friendly.

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Being my first optometry exam, Dr. Nguyen spent plenty of time explaining to me eye health and how it pertains to someone of my age and my concerns. Highly recommend this clinic.

Highly recommend this place for your eyewear/eye exam. The staff is very friendly, have a wide range of frames available. Pretty much accepts major insurances. So far the best experience with eye exam, doctor gave very detailed explanation about the eye reports and other precautionary measures.

Lynn Crawford

As usual, excellent all the way around. From my usual visits, I brought my 7yo for his 1st eye exam and Dr. Nguyen was awesome. He was quick and explained everything to my son in kid terms and my son is excited to get his reading glasses. We will be back! Never a complaint. ūüėä

Katy McCowen

Dr. Nguyen really knows his stuff! He helped me understand all of the tests and what they are for. I didn't know I needed an eye exam every year even if my eyesight is good. They also take my insurance and his staff got me computer glasses fast. Highly recommend.


At Clairemont Optometry, we believe in small things. We believe a small kind act can make a big different in another person’s life.

We believe each patient is an unique individual with unique history and eye care needs. There is no cookie-cutter at our practice, only individualized care and services.

We are passionate about what we do. We crave for That Feel-Good Feeling in our hearts the moment we see your face lights up with a smile when you put on that perfect pair of glasses or contacts.

The best moment of our day is when we hear you say “Thank you, see you next year!” because then we know that we have done our jobs well.


A new and comfortable way to check eye pressure without the much dreaded airpuff !


Early signs of disease can be present in the periphery of your retina and remain undetected for a long time when using traditional methods. The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in a single image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.


Dr Bruce Nguyen, O.D. specializes in hard-to-fit contact lenses, especially contact lenses for pediatric population with lenses such as Ortho-K ( CRT) lenses. Other types of challenging contact lenses he fits weekly at his practice are scleral lenses for keratoconus patients, progressive contact lenses for patients who do not want to wear readers, hybrid contact lenses for patients with high amount of astigmatism, hard contacts, and of course, soft contact lenses.



There are millions of Ortho-K lenses wearers worldwide and about one-third of them are adults over 18 years old. You may be a good candidates for Ortho-K lenses if you have any of the followings:

  • Your daytime contacts or glasses get in the way of your lifestyle and activities, such as sports, exercise, or swimming.
  • You are unable to wear contacts due to dry eyes or allergies
  • You find daytime contacts irritating or uncomfortable
  • -You work in an environment that is not well suited to wearing contacts or glasses, such as one that is dusty, wet, or windy.
  • -You are not a good candidate for LASIK or do not want to do LASIK
