Company Description

Wendy Shem Yeh, OD is an independently owned small private optometric practice located in Pasadena, CA.  Originally established in 1964 by the renowned Robert Eastland, OD and later expanded upon by John Tassinari, OD in 1989, we believe in providing the highest quality service to our patients. Our practice emphasizes family optometric care in a friendly and caring atmosphere while communicating and enlightening our patients about every aspect of their vision. We provide pediatric care, specialty contact lens care, vision therapy, sports vision, and all aspects of vision and eye health care. We see patients starting at 6 mos old til they are 106 years old and beyond. Success is knowing we are providing our patients with clear, comfortable and functional vision, having our patients love their new glasses, know they are being cared for, refer their family and friends to us, and return year after year because they know we will take care of them.

Our staff strive to continuously learn and improve themselves. We all know we have opportunities to learn new skills and expand our knowledge. No one knows everything, so we all are open to learning something new and figuring things out if we don’t have the answer. We strive for what we can do, not what we can’t. We are conscientious and work hard! This isn’t just about a job but about helping others. We also all get along extremely well! We work as a team and support each other to do our best. As a very small practice, it’s important for us to work together.
