We love our patients; and we love what our patients are saying about us!

I have never experienced any office of any kind where the people were more friendly, caring and professional. I was way overdue for an eye exam so I chose Dr. Joyce as he's located in my town. In just a short time I walked out with contacts that are allowing me to see better than I ever did with glasses.

I only wish Valley Center Optometry took care of more than vision. I’d go there for a heart transplant, if they did that kind of thing, confident that I'd walk out of there healthier than I'd ever been.

I cannot recommend Dr. Joyce and his staff highly enough.

- Cecil S. of Valley Center, CA

Every time I go in to Valley Center Optometry I get the absolute best service. They have some of the best customer service I have ever received. I have been wearing glasses for 20 years (since I was 4) and this office is hands down the best I have ever been to. Most doctors I have received care from merely do their jobs and usher you out, Dr. Joyce does not. He explains everything in great details and is happy to answer all questions. He does this in great details if requested and really cares about patient care. He has helped me more with my vision than all doctors previously. I tell all I know in and out of the area that they should see Dr. Robert Joyce. Also, they have a great selection of frames and are always willing to find exactly what you need.

- Ashley R. of Valley Center, CA

I have seen at least twenty different optometrists and Dr. Joyce is the absolute best. Thorough, accurate and pleasant manner.

- George S. of Valley Center, CA

We lived in Oceanside, CA then moved to Phoenix, AZ and we have being making the drive to Valley Center Optometry every year to see Dr. Joyce. He has been our optometrist for the last 5 years. Our son who is now 15 years old has really bad vision and every optometrist prior to Dr. Joyce had given him glasses which were helping, but Dr. Joyce gave him some special contacts that have given him the opportunity to get 20/20 vision. He and his staff are very knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant to work with. We highly recommend Dr. Joyce-Valley Center Optometry.

- Pam M. of Phoenix, AZ

Best service ever. Love the doc and his team. We're glad they’re here in Valley Center.

- Alex H. of Valley Center, CA

Very professional and very friendly. I have had 3 optometrists prior to Dr. Joyce, and the others were great, but Dr. Joyce and his staff were off the charts in every single way. Very nice, very knowledgeable, and you get the feeling they really care.

That's because they do.

- Yuille M. of Valley Center, CA

Dr. Joyce accommodated me on very short notice, even worked after normal business hours to evaluate my vision. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, supportive and provided me a number of options. Prices and plans were very affordable. His staff was professional, friendly, helpful, and responsive. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Joyce and the staff at Valley Center Optometry...Why would I want to trust my vision with anyone else?

- Curt M. of Temecula, CA

I have had problems with my eyes all of my life, and have been to many eye doctors. I have never had such a good experience as I did here. I highly recommend Dr. Joyce as the best, and the most understanding I have ever encountered. Plus, he and his staff are the most friendly I have ever encountered in my life. Thanks to him, I can see better than I have my whole life. Thank you so much.

- Michael F. of Valley Center, CA

Always the best service. I really enjoy going to get my eyes checked out because I know I’m getting the best care from people who genuinely want to help me. I would recommend this place to anyone.

- David T. of Valley Center, CA

Valley Center Optometry is where I take my whole family. Not only is it a local optometry center, but the staff is outstanding. Dr. Joyce is such a down to earth doctor that relates very well to the young and old. He is so positive and has a great smile. Dawn is a great assistant who helps the patients with all their needs. The office has up to date technology for checking your eyes. I highly recommend VC Optometry, even if you don't live in Valley Center.

- Anayeli G. of Valley Center, CA

The staff at VCO is very warm and welcoming! I especially loved the modern-rustic feel! Dr. Joyce was very sincere; he asked questions to understand my situation (had a pinguecula) as I was contemplating surgery. He made me feel better by letting me know that it was not an uncommon condition and has had several patients with them and how they responded to the treatment. He was very honest and gave me the pros and cons. He definitely helped me keep it real regarding what to expect afterwards.

I originally came in just for a routine checkup and an update for my glasses!

Simply put: you're treated like family at Valley Center Optometry.

- Lona P. of San Marcos, CA

Just moved here from out of town, so just looked around google and decided to go here. What a great experience! Beginning with Dawn at the front desk, understanding when I called to say I’d be late due to traffic...to Dr. Joyce--Very thorough and pleasant to work with-Relaxed and very professional atmosphere. Good selection of nice frames and easy billing at very reasonable prices. Will be returning for sure whenever I need eye care...

- Alberto M. of San Marcos, CA

Let me start with 5 years ago I has Lasik surgery, and for the last 6 months I’ve noticed my vision is a little blurry. So I checked Costco and Wal-mart to see if they accepted my insurance; no, they did not. On a hunch I called the only optometrist in the town I live, and what do you know, not only do they take my insurance they can see me in an hour. Sweet, within one appointment I have glasses picked out and my 10 year old has an appointment in a week. Super friendly doctor and staff that really listen to their clients.

- Blake K. of Valley Center, CA

Great Service. This is a spacious, clean office with friendly staff that makes the whole experience easy. I found the prices after insurance to be reasonable and the doctor to be upfront and knowledgeable. I thought about going to get my glasses at Costco but found that I would be paying close to the same price and I would prefer to support my local businesses especially the ones I want to stay around for a while. Thanks for the great service!

- Julie D. of Valley Center, CA

So nice to have a great optometrist with a very pleasant staff here in Valley Center. They accept VSP insurance which lots of people in VC have since we work for the schools here. Highly recommend.

- Dianne G. of Valley Center, CA

I just had an appointment with Dr. Joyce. He's friendly, thorough and professional. He answered any questions I had and explained everything in detail. His office staff was friendly and competent which is a rare talent these days.

- Charmaine W. of Valley Center, CA

This is by far the BEST optometry office I've ever been to.

- Janice T. of Valley Center, CA

Great hometown feel from the time you walk in the door. Nice selection and fantastic pricing! Staff was knowledgeable and very friendly.

- Noemy C. of Valley Center, CA

I did not have an appointment, but was having an eye issue, and took the chance that I could be seen without an appt. Not only did they see me, they gave me a complete eye exam and answered all my eye worries. And I ordered a new pair of glasses! Excellent service.

- Pamela A. of Valley Center, CA

Dr Joyce is very knowledgeable and personable. Service is complete and staff is very friendly. Dr. Joyce has been my optometrist for years and has diagnosed and successfully treated some complicated issues I was having with my eyes. I highly recommend him.

- Cheryl T. of Valley Center, CA

The staff is very accommodating, friendly and professional. They actually made special arrangements to see me at the last minute and went out of their way to explain everything in detail. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

- Anna L. of Valley Center, CA

My appointment went very well. I wanted to get back into contacts after not wearing them for several years. I was prescribed a great pair that is so comfortable. The doctor was very professional, yet personal. I would recommend Valley Center Optometry to anyone who wants good service and very knowledgeable doctors.

- Anayeli G. of Valley Center, CA

The whole staff was very nice and courteous. I was seen ON TIME and the appointment did not take long at all. I will definitely be going there for all of my eye care needs from now on.
