Encinitas Optometry

Dr. Owen has sold his practice, Encinitas Optometry, to Dr. Hutchinson. Here is a letter to his patients explaining this development.


Dear Patients,

After 10 years of serving the community as your family Optometrist, the time has come for me to move on to other interests in my professional life. It has been both a pleasure and honor to have served you. I have had the joy of developing strong friendships and deeply appreciate your loyalty throughout the years.

To ensure a smooth transition, and provide for the continuity and quality of eye care you deserve, I am pleased to announce that Dr. R. Anthony Hutchinson will be continuing my Optometry practice in our current location. Dr. Hutchinson and I have shared this office space since I moved my practice into his office space five years ago. I am recommending that all my patients see Dr. Hutchinson for their eye care needs. He is a dedicated, caring and well trained optometrist who has been serving the North County area for the past 34 years. He has invested in advanced technology and training, allowing for early detection of glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, as well as other eye conditions.

Eye care appointments can be made with Dr. Hutchinson by calling either the Encinitas Optometry number at (760) 436-1877 or the Pacific View Eye Care Center number at (760) 753-6336. Your medical records will continue to reside at our office and will remain strictly confidential. We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition and the highest level of comfort and service.

I have greatly valued our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years.

Jim Owen, O.D.
