Dr. Mark Yeghiazarian

Dr. Mark Yeghiazarian was born and raised in San Francisco. During his time at UCLA as a psychobiology major, Dr. Mark Yeghiazarian spent many hours shadowing various optometry offices. These offices demonstrated the unique and close-knit patient-doctor relationships forged in optometry that were unlike any other profession.
