Meet The Optometrist

  • Dr.
    Robert Gonzalez
    OD

    Dr. Gonzalez graduated from San Diego State University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. After graduation he spent two years doing genetic research at the University of San Francisco, although he eventually began to grow weary of laboratory work. Seeking to build on his affinity toward science in the direction of helping others, he enrolled in The Illinois College of Optometry, and obtained his doctorate in 2011.


    Dr. Gonzalez has since dedicated himself to the highest standard of eye care. Having completed externships throughout the country, he has developed an interest in ocular disease management including: Dry Eye, Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. 

    In 2009 he donated his time to Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) conducting hundreds of eye exams and delivering glasses at no charge in Peru. Shortly thereafter, he was introduced to Dr. Jeffrey Hall, and a friendship based on their mutual passion for humanitarian outreach. In 2013, Dr. Robert Gonzalez purchased Lake Murray Optometric from Dr. Hall and they remain great friends. 

    Outside of work you can find Dr. Gonzalez and his wife Jessica growing organic food on their small homestead, debating whether or not to get more chickens, and taking their dogs Huxley and August on adventures! 

  • Dr.
    Jeffrey A. Hall
    OD

    (Semi-Retired) 


    Dr. Hall attended Rutgers State University of New Jersey, graduating in 1973. He then pursued his doctorate from Pennsylvania College of Optometry, completed in 1977. Dr. Hall established the Lake Murray-San Carlos Optometric Center in January 1979, where he and his wife Fern continued building on a foundation of helping others through patient care for 34 years.

    During these 34 years, Dr. Hall championed a great many accomplishments. He is the proud father of three sons and five grandchildren. In 1981, Dr. Hall was a founding member of the La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club, and as of 2019, he is the current President Elect. Dr. Hall is proud of having obtained a third-degree black belt in karate, and has passionately traveled the world, often administering aid to the underserved along the way. 
    Dr. Hall currently practices Optometry part time, mostly volunteer work at the San Diego Lions Optometric Vision Clinic. Annually he and Fern go with a group of Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and opticians to Central America, donating their time to those most in need of life-changing vision care. Most often, you’ll find Dr. Hall with his wife, sons, and grandchildren, or on long walks around Lake Murray with his brother and faithful dog Chico. And most often you’ll find Chico on the Hall’s rooftop where he serves as the neighborhood watchman!
