COVID UPDATE: Click the button below for an update on how our protocols have and will change now that June 15th has rolled around!
Who We Are
We are a privately owned, progressive veterinary ophthalmology practice offering comprehensive evaluations, advanced diagnostics (ERG, Gonioscopy, Ocular Ultrasound, etc.) and both medical and surgical therapies (Ciliary Body Ablation, Cryoepilation, Phacoemulsfications, etc.) for our patients. Established in 2013, Integrative Ophthalmology for Pets started out by renting space from various general practice animal clinics in order to have room for exams. As our clientele grew, so did our company. We have moved from renting exam rooms to having our own location near the heart of the Mid-Wilshire district.
Our services include a wide range of integrative therapies, mixing Eastern and Western medical recommendations for our patients. We also promote general ocular wellness and food therapy based on Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
Our Mission Statement
To create a balanced and preventative ocular health care plan based on a thorough ophthalmic examination and recognition of each patient as a whole and unique individual.
We intend to reinforce our commitment daily by:
- Honoring the relationship between our clients and their pets
- Providing the highest quality ophthalmic care and actively engaging clients in their pet’s health care treatment plan
- Promoting education about veterinary ophthalmology and preventative care
- Integrating conventional (‘Western’) and complementary (‘Eastern’) therapies when indicated and appropriate
- Cultivating a positive atmosphere and always maintaining our integrity
Dr. Park is awesome, she is very caring and you can tell she loves what she does. I have gone in for an initial exam and a follow up exam and both times Dr. Park explained everything she was performing on Toby and why she was performing the procedures and what she was looking for. After the initial visit Toby was doing a lot better, the swelling on both his eyes had significantly decreased and he was no longer attempting to scratch his eyes and cry from the pain. I was amazed he had this ongoing eye problem for over 3 months and after one visit with Dr. Park I saw a dramatic improvement. He was diagnosed with blepharitis, and now after two weeks he is back to his happy, spunky, eye itch free self. So happy I decided to take him to Dr. Park rather than some other corporate specialist!. Thank you Dr. Park!Angelica S.7/03/2016
If I could leave a negative star I would!! I booked my dogs appointment with them after my regular vet had recommended this office. They could not see my dog for a month even though he was about to loose his eye sight. I took off a whole days of work to make this appointment!! I even paid a deposit to keep my appointment!! They emailed me the night before saying that the appointment was cancelled because they didn't get my application for on time, which I did fill out on time and had sent it to them! I spoke to the receptionist (Cynthia) that had not a single carrying bone in her body about my dogs situation!! I asked to speak with the doctor regarding this and they refused to connect with her or even give me her email address so that I may communicate with her!! They are extremely unprofessional!! I would never refer anyone to this office!! Oh, not to mention that I am a doctor as well!!ZERO Compassion!!!Westwood C.2/20/2020
Our Pitbull mix Dollar, for about three years, had an issue with his right eye that made him tear up and squint. We took him to Dr. Park two years ago and he was diagnosed with entropion but we were very hesitant to commit to surgery. Instead of steamrolling our concerns about surgery, Dr. Park and her wonderful vet techs tried everything to allay his eye issue non-surgically and recommended diet tips as well (Dollar also has a lot of skin allergies). Finally we decided the only way to truly fix his condition was with surgery and now he's doing much better! They were very transparent and upfront with what the procedure would involve and the cost. All our questions and concerns were answered promptly and they were wonderful handling our dog, who is not the easiest dog to deal with (he's super energetic and strong). I'm really happy to see both of Dollar's eyes again and I'm very pleased that his recovery went pretty smoothly. I also appreciate how after every visit you get emailed a very thorough recap of what was discussed. These are people who truly care and want the best for your pet. Thank you so much Dr. Park!Sara S.2/15/2019
Dr. Park is the BEST! She has been seeing our dog since 2015, and because of her, his eyes are in the best condition they could be. She is thorough and thoughtful in her examination, diagnosis, and follow up. I am grateful for Dr. Park and everything she has done for our dog to make him comfortable and happy.Yvonne L.1/18/2019
I have two doggos that actually come to Dr. Park. I first came across her when I was searching for ophthalmologists on yelp since one of my dogs has a dry eye condition that wasn't getting any better from our regular veterinary care. It's been about 5 months since my doggo has been under her care and my husband and I have seen so much improvement! My primary vet kept telling me his eye was infected and gave him all these eye drops and antibiotics, ugh I am still pissed about it but when we came to Dr. Park she clearly said it's not infected and gave him the right treatment plan. I'm glad he is doing so much better now. My other dog also had a mass/wart sort of thing coming out from her eyelid and recently had a procedure to get it removed. I am definitely one of those crazy dog moms out there so it's a lot for me to trust someone with my babies. Dr. Park has great bedside manner - a very gentle and sweet woman that explains things thoroughly. I also like that she has in-depth questionnaires about your dog and you can see what kind of element your dog is, "water" "fire", etc. and how their diet is the first step in bettering their health. She actually got us to switch to human-grade food and not kibbles and we've also seen improvement in their stool and overall energy. I would definitely recommend Dr. Park!Frances M.7/20/2019

The vet has some concerns with the eyes of our soon-to-be 13 year old dog. After debating taking her to a specialist and researching ophthalmologist options, I was not only convinced to make an appointment for her, but felt like I had found the perfect place to take my little girl and I was right! The paperwork you fill out online prior to the appointment is very thorough, which to me signaled that they cared about her diet, environment, and medical background. Since the appointment was during Covid, they had the amazing option for me to join her exam via Zoom from my vehicle so the doctor could walk me through everything and answer my questions along the way. It was an amazing experience - from the clear instructions to passing her off, getting connected, and following along during the exam with the comprehensive folder they provided that included information to review while they were getting set up, a detailed eye chart for me to review exactly what the doctor was discussing, a note pad and pen for me to write down any questions or information provided to me, and post-exam information. The vet tech re-connected via Zoom after the exam to further discuss medication options, follow up appointments, etc. They were very patient with my dog throughout the exam and with me by answering questions I had throughout the process. I really appreciated the attention given to both me as the caretaker and of my dog before, during, and after the appointment. I loved that there were medicinal and more natural approaches discussed, that I was provided options for her care, and that other factors such as diet were discussed as well. She goes back in a couple of days for her follow up. I've been very excited to see how well she has reacted to treatments for what turned out to be a diagnosis of dry eyes. I'm so glad I took her in - she is in excellent hands with the team here!Elizabeth W.3/03/2021
Our basset hound had a blocked tear duct that required surgery. We compared prices, services and chose this location because for a slight upcharge the services were more significant and required less recovery time. I liked the surgeon, who explained all of the procedure and care after the surgery.The kicker is the when all was said and done, they have me a bill that was significantly less than my initial estimate. So I got a higher quality of service from a specialist for less than their competitor?? Sign me up.Alex M.7/28/2019
