Welcome toWalnut Creek Optical

Walnut Creek Optical (WCO) has provided exceptional eye care services to Walnut Creek and surrounding east Contra Costa County since 1987. We are experts in progressive lenses, computer eyewear, sunglass selection, and specialty eyewear such as golf, tennis, and driving glasses. WCO offers a unique combination of cutting-edge fashion, highest-quality lens design, and experienced fully-licensed opticians who are ready to customize that perfect pair of glasses for you and your family.

If you are in need of a new eyeglass prescription, a new or updated contact lens fitting, or even a full comprehensive eye exam, you can schedule an appointment with one of our expert eye doctors on-site. If you are looking for children’s glasses, we have a fine selection of frames, and are highly experienced in the special needs of kids and glasses.

Geriatric patients also have specific needs and eye conditions. Walnut Creek Optical has a full range of low vision aids, and our low-vision specialist can provide an exam specifically designed to select the best aid for each client.

ZEISS Lens Technology

Walnut Creek Optical has partnered with the world leader in optics, Zeiss, to provide unparalleled precision in customizing both frame and lens to each client. Please ask our opticians about the Zeiss i.Profiler and i.Terminal prescription package, and the Zeiss computer office lens.

Designer Frames

We carry the latest in frame designs from Kate Spade, Juicy Couture, Dutz, Helium, Marchon Cole Haan, OWP, Carrera, Hugo Boss and Seiko. Many of these brands are also available as sunglasses. Our staff will be happy to help you select the most comfortable and stylish frame.


The past five years have seen a revolution in eyeglass lens design. Walnut Creek Optical has incorporated the latest technology to provide you with customized digital free-form lenses from Zeiss and Essilor (Varilux). The results are unmatched visual clarity and image quality, including the best in progressive addition (PAL), Transition®, bifocal, trifocal, and single-vision lenses.


In addition to the brands listed under Designer Frames, we also carry a wide selection of sunglasses, including Maui Jim, and more. Ask our opticians about the various lens colors which may be best suited for your needs. Your prescription may also be incorporated into sunglasses for great vision on the sunniest days.

Children’s Glasses

With children’s glasses, it’s not just about style. Kids require individual attention and care to ensure the full development of their visual potential. Walnut Creek Optical staff is ready to help your kids both look good and see their best with special lens materials, frame sizes, and special-order prescriptions. We can even schedule a prompt pediatric eye exam, if necessary.

Eye Exams

Unlike some other “upscale” optical shops, Walnut Creek Optical can provide refractions, custom contact lens fittings, comprehensive medical eye exams, and expert care for medical eye conditions including cataract, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Our board-certified eye doctors and surgeons are leaders in the Contra Costa eye care community.
