About Our Rebranding

Moving On From California Eye And Ear

Q. What is this changeover to Acuity? Why are you changing your name?

A. Because we're growing.

Recently, we decided to take our company in a new direction. Founded ten years ago, the Retina Institute and its affiliates have seen sustained and steady growth throughout the state of California. As we looked to expand further, the next step in our journey was to create a company name and logo that would encompass the evolution of our company as well as its culture.

Q. Why did you decide on the name "Acuity?" What does that mean?

A. It embodies who we are and who we are hoping to be.

"Acuity" is defined as "keenness of perception." It also means, "the ability to see, hear, or understand something easily." The connection to this word in eye care is obvious, and changing the lives of our patients by improving their vision has been the cornerstone of our business. However, "Acuity" can also apply to having a sharp, united vision in our strategic mission: To become the premier provider of eye care throughout the country.

Q. What does "Caring people, caring for people" mean?

A. While we grow, we're still a family and a team.

"Acuity" expresses our commitment to our reputation as well as our new mission statement: "Caring people, caring for people." This new philosophy will shine through to our patients from every rung of the company ladder, from our janitors, to our front desk, to our physicians.

Q. How will this change affect me and other patients?

A. Expect a more streamlined experience.

Meanwhile, everything that brought us this far- efficient, friendly service and the best possible doctors- will continue under this new name.

We are excited to move forward. Thank you for your support in this journey.

Our Mission

Caring People, Caring For People

At Acuity Eye Specialists, we've built our culture on putting our patients first. We've all been in clinics where the wait times were long, the receptionist seemed disinterested, and that we were just a number to our physician.

Here, we pride ourselves on being different. "Caring People, Caring For People" is something we take very seriously, and it permeates every facet of our staff and administration. Everyone from the front desk, to the janitorial staff, to corporate leadership, works to embody our mission statement in the way we treat our patients and each other.
