LISA KIT YI KO, O.D.
Dr. Lisa Ko completed her undergraduate studies at U.C. Berkeley and received her Doctor of Optometry degree at the Southern California College of Optometry.

Berkeley's Optometry School to help train future optometrists.
Though she has a lengthy list of professional credentials and accolades, Dr. Ko is perhaps best known for her detailed and thorough examinations and bright, friendly demeanor. She'll take the time with you to personally explain your eye health and vision conditions. Accessible and approachable, Dr. Ko is always there to answer any of your eye questions whether you're asking for in-depth medical information or just fun eye trivia.
When she's not busy seeing patients, Dr. Ko enjoys volunteering at the local schools and has dedicated time to help students both in and out of the classroom. She has served as an art docent helping students learn and explore different art disciplines and mediums and has given talks at public schools to teach children about eyes and vision. Her dedication also extends to the community at-large. Dr. Ko has served as a co-leader and a treasurer of a local girl scout troop. Under her leadership, she has guided the troop though various community projects including recycling programs, food harvests, senior center visits, and public clean-ups.
