The Birth of a Passion…

Dr. Arash Mozayan and Dr. Ehsan Mozayan's interest in the field of ophthalmology started very early as one of their relatives lost vision due to diabetes. This childhood experience founded the basis for the philosophy they practice on a daily basis: "providing the best individualized care to each person so they can achieve their best visual potential and resume their life."

At Retina San Diego, we understand that losing your vision is the most difficult experience one can go through. Our state-of-the-art center provides a comfortable environment where we are dedicated to evaluating your ailments with the latest diagnostic imaging technology and providing the best treatment algorithm individualized to your care.
