Optometry | Male

Dr. Brent Wells, OD
I am a local! I grew up in Atascadero CA, received my BS in Nutrition with a concentration in Nutritional Sciences, and a Minor in Biology. I received my Doctorate in Optometry from Western University of Health Sciences. My training included a special emphasis in Ocular disease, Glaucoma, and primary Geriatric Eye care at the Battle Creek VA in Michigan, Cataract co-management, LASIK co-management, and Traumatic Brain injury / Neuro rehabilitation from Fort Belvoir Army medical Hospital in Virginia. I am very fortunate to have been able to return to the central coast where I am honored to replace Dr. Gary Englund. He was the founder of Optometric Care Associates. In my free time i enjoy spending time with my Family. I married my highschool sweetheart and we had our first child, Sonora, in 2016. I enjoy doing many projects around the house, camping, and traveling
