San Diego Optical Company

You can expect great service and familiar faces when you visit San Diego Optical Company in the Village. The family owned mom and pop shop started in downtown San Diego in 1931. Expanding to the Jewel in 1957, San Diego Optical has been nestled on the corner of Fay and Kline for over 50 years. Acquiring the thriving business from his father, owners Carter Shrum and wife Vivian have been giving customers the gift of great vision for over 35 years. With top-notch service, state-of-the-art products and equipment and a thorough knowledge of the industry, San Diego Optical has been and always will be committed to providing personalized care for La Jollans and visitors alike. When it comes to lenses, San Diego Optical is the La Jolla one-stop-shop. Creating custom lenses is their expertise: 90% of their lenses are finished onsite and many customers enjoy same day service, or have their new prescription installed in their frames while they wait. This speedy turnaround and central location saves locals the time and hassle they may encounter elsewhere.
