"Improving your vision is my top priority. It is my privilege to care for your eyes and offer you my best services as I would for anyone in my family."

About

We are pleased to announce we have a new provider at Pacific Eye Institute. Dr. Ji Kwan “Jake” Park, our new General Ophthalmologist, officially joined us on July 1, 2020. Dr. Park is currently accepting new patients and will provide comprehensive eye care services.

Originally from the Republic of Korea, Dr. Park completed his Ophthalmology Residency at Loma Linda University — the same institution where he earned his Doctor of Medicine. Dr. Park has published numerous research articles. Dr. Park speaks Korean and looks forward to serving our patients.

In his free-time, Dr. Park enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, biking and camping with his family.
