What differentiates us

How we were trained
Dr. Jeffrey Safarik, a board certified optometrist, completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of California at Davis in 1984. He received a second Bachelor of Science in Visual Science in 1986 from the Southern California College of Optometry.
In 1988, Dr. Safarik graduated in the top one-third of his class with a Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry. He moved to San Diego, joining a large eye care HMO and was Director of Doctors for over fifty clinics that operated in California.
Two years later, he was offered a position at a Southern California vision HMO, practicing eight years in the Carlsbad and La Jolla areas. In the Carlsbad location, he had the pleasure of providing exam services and contacts for Tony Hawk. He was chairman of the Quality Assurance committee for the HMO's 15 offices. In order to practice vision care without the restraints of HMO guidelines, he joined Astorino and Associates Eye Center in Newport Beach in 1998. Dr. Safarik performed as Clinic Director at the eye center for six years, handling many of the day to day operations as well as patient care. His years of experience in pre-operative and post-operative care for LASIK, cataract, pterygium, oculo-plastics and other surgeries have added a wealth of knowledge and skills to his clinical foundation. He is therapeutically licensed and trained to treat eye conditions including allergies, infections, dry eyes and glaucoma.
