An Unparalleled Patient Experience

We honor our patients’ time at Li & Liao Optometry, and pride ourselves on thorough exams where our doctors give you and your eyes their complete focus. We employ scribes who stay with you through your entire experience to take down notes so our doctors can concentrate on you, and relay important details to our opticians for a truly personalized eyewear shopping experience.

Our Deep Bakersfield Roots

We’ve been a trusted source for eye care in the Bakersfield community since we opened more than 15 years ago. During this time, we’ve grown to better meet patient needs with more services and advanced, customized care: we don’t just work here, we live here as members of your community, and we’re honored that our neighbors continue to depend on us. Your eyes are our number one priority.

“I’ve been coming here to Dr. Li and Dr. Liao for almost 20 years with zero bad experiences for contacts and glasses. Wouldn’t trust any place else. I like that you can make appointment online in a zip. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable and they take the time to make sure everything is right by being transparent by showing you your retinal images, explaining whats going on to the detail scientifically with your vision so you understand. I like having the retinal imaging done that doesn’t require eye drops and takes a few seconds, pretty cool tech. Huge glasses selection on major brands. They have social distancing, air filter, and uv disinfection for trying on glasses which I thought was pretty cool. All the assistants super friendly as well so overall positive atmosphere and highly recommended.”
