Pendleton Eye Center Promise

Vision is one of our most precious senses, and better vision means a better quality of life. Each of our physicians has trained and taught at some of the most prestigious universities in the country. Our office is comfortable and spacious, and our multilingual staff is the friendliest in town. We are committed to providing the most safe and effective treatments available to give you the best vision possible.

That’s the Pendleton Eye Center Promise!

Pendleton Eye Center officially opened its doors to patients in 1998. Started by Dr. Robert Pendleton, a Southern California native, who graduated from residency training in Ophthalmology in 1994 from Northwestern University School of Medicine, the Pendleton Eye Center’s mission has always been to offer an individualized approach to eye care. We offer financing to help you afford the vision you deserve to live the lifestyle you love.  Unlike some centers that move patients in and out quickly in assembly line mode, we break from that pattern by making our office a comfortable, friendly and accommodating place to visit.

Our Office

Built in 2008, our contemporary 4,000 sq foot facility was designed specifically for our needs, with a natural flow from the waiting room, to the pretesting area, to an inner dilating room with two custom built salt-water aquariums, a post dilation testing area, the physician exam rooms, a special procedure room equipped with an operative microscope, and finally ending in a beautiful boutique optical shop.  At the center is our check in / check out, billing office, chart storage, and office manager.  Patients travel from entry to exit, in a circle around the facility, and our walls feature photography-based artwork created by Dr. Pendleton, which we refer to as the Twenty 20 Gallery.  Our office/gallery has hosted night time and weekend art-openings for Dr. Pendleton’s artwork, as well as other local artists and art groups, charitable organizations, and alumni groups.
