Tech Focus: Polarized Eyewear

Polarized glasses are a first choice in eyewear to protecting your long term eye and vision health. Whenever you see a bright, intense light, any exposure to any type of glare can significantly increase a person's risk of developing serious sight-threatening eye conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts, as well as a painful “sunburn of the eye,” called photokeratitis.

Due to the glare off car hoods or windshields, mirrors, bodies of water like ponds, streams, or lakes, or even snow, wearing polarized lenses during the day can provide complete eye protection that reduces risks, improves visual comfort on sunny days, and, with the right style, keeps you stylish.

Polarized glasses are used by professional athletes because of the importance of eye health. Speak with one of our doctors for a consultation and to find a perfect pair from our large optical section.

Welcome to City Optometry!

We've changed our name from City Contacts Optometry to City Optometry but we are still the same great Practice with the same great Eye Doctors!

Your vision is perhaps the most vital of all your senses. It's your window to the world around you. Which is why your vision eye care needs to be as detailed, accurate and uncompromising as it can be. It's also why the optometrist you choose should be as focused on the health of your eyes as the accuracy of your vision correction or the quality of your lenses, contact lenses and/or eyeglasses.

At City Optometry in San Francisco's Financial District, Drs. Katherine Morioka and Vincent Penza believe you deserve the best eyecare you can get. Since opening their doors two decades ago, these dedicated eye doctors have earned a reputation for excellence in vision correction, eye exams and diagnosis and management of eye diseases and disorders. More importantly, they've earned the trust of thousands of people who live, work or play in the San Francisco Bay or Union Square areas. We invite you to come see why.

I had a great experience at City Optometry. Friendly and helpful reception at the front desk and not a long wait time. Kirsten who did the pre-testing before the eye exam with the doctor, was engaging, outgoing and professional. Dr. Penza did a thorough eye exam and explained my options. Attractive space and convenient parking right across the street.

I love City Optometry so much, I still fly up to San Francisco for my annual appointments even after I moved to San Diego. The doctors and staff are all so friendly, skilled, and professional.

Dr. Morioka has been my optometrist for the past 8 years and her excellent professional demanor and accumulated knowledge draws me back again and again.

Had a wonderful first visit with Dr. Penza and staff. Everyone was thorough, gentle, and informative during my entire visit. I will definitely be going back to City Optometry for my future vision needs because of their great service! Thanks!

From the excellent service at the front desk to the comprehensive, detail-oriented annual visit check up I was blown away by this office! As a first time patient I felt right at home. Could not recommend Dr. Penza and his staff any higher! Thanks!

I have been seeing Dr. Penza for a while now. I absolutely trust him with the health of my vision and am constantly receiving compliments on my glasses. I've been having problems with dry eyes and I am so impressed with his recommendation of vitamins to help with moisture as first resort. He is professional, thorough and his staff is so nice and welcoming.

Amazing! My first time having to find a doctor since moving here, and I hit the jackpot. Every single person I encountered from arriving till I left were friendly, and funny. The whole office is just overall, very clean, calm and sophisticated. I have never been to an office where someone actually helps you find what frames work for you. Usually all I get from other doctors are "have a look around and let me know what ones you pick". It was very refreshing to say the least. I wish a visit to the eye doctor was more frequent! I had a great experience!!!!
