We are currently accepting New Patients! Call us today to schedule your appointment with our optometrists (415)626-0858 or you may book online!

Our refinished floors look beautiful at For Your Eyes Only! Jesse was on our office early-bird crew last week putting the place back together after we had the floors redone. Yes, there were doughnuts.

Dr. Kathleen Kennedy has been the owner of For Your Eyes Only Optometry for 30 years as of June 12! It’s a time to reflect with gratitude on the many kind, interesting, helpful, hilarious, and supportive people who have made these years so lovely.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Be well!

Thank you for understanding,

Your friends at For Your Eyes Only Optometry

While Sheltering-In-Place, Dr. Kennedy and her brother Wiley volunteered to make Face Shields at home for the heroic hospital workers on the COVID-19 front lines.

Stay healthy everyone! We miss you and look forward to seeing you in person and taking care of your beautiful eyes soon. 💜

Today is the first annual Eye Love You Back event. Dr. Kennedy and colleagues are providing free eye exams and glasses to disadvantaged students ages 5-22 years old in Roseville California. Some Superheroes dropped by to offer their services as well!
