Dr. Dimaranan didn't start out with a career in optometry but as an aeronautical engineer. Why the switch? "I didn't want to just sit in a cubicle staring at a computer monitor my entire career" says Dr. Liza Dimaranan. "I realized I enjoyed working with my co-workers and having more personal interaction with individuals more than anything else." So she went back to school to obtain her doctorate in optometry at the Southern California College of Optometry. After obtaining her degree, Dr. Dimaranan worked in a private practice and for an ophthalmologist, gaining valuable experience, before obtaining her own practice in Pico Rivera.

This instrument is called a Visual Fields. It is the most sophisticated instrument in our clinic, as it can more easily detect more eye diseases for the doctor to interpret from its data readings. The findings from this test enable the doctor to determine if there is any retinal disease and if there is any disease process behind the eye to the back of the brain. This test must be done every year since the conditions that we are looking for can develop at any age and at any time.
