All together, the employees at the Vision Center have 20+yrs experience in the field of optometry.

Liz Valenzuela began working for Dr. Prewett at the Vision Center in 2005, first as an assistant, then as a receptionist and optician.

 In 2016, she began handling all insurance billing, something she loves to do! Known to everyone here as the “Insurance Lady”, she savors the victory of finally getting paid by insurance companies who had previously denied our claims. Often, the staff will hear her announce, “I just had a billing moment in case anyone wants to know!”

 She also enjoys being able to help many of our patients overcome a language barrier, explaining the complexities of the insurance world.

 Liz was promoted to Office Manager in January 2019. She works directly with Dr. Prewett and our staff supervisor, Lucy Gonzalez. Her new responsibilities include handling other doctor’s referrals, school referrals, time cards, and whatever challenges may arise during the day that the doctor may need her to take care of.

"I have been going to Dr. Prewett for many years now and I can recommend him without reservation He is kind, generous and very knowledgeable. He is easy to work with and I feel has given me the best eye care and vision possible. In particular, Emma has the patience of a saint!!! I'm sure I stretch her to the max when choosing new glasses frames but she always acts like she has all the time in the world for me making sure that I am happy with both the frames and the lenses of my new glasses... I highly recommend this office for your vision needs."

Brooks T., San Luis Obispo, CA.

"My daughter and I went to three different places to purchase eyeglasses…When we went to the Vision Center, Daniel helped us order the Rayban lenses for $140.00! They had the best customer service! I would highly recommend going to speak to Daniel he was A A+ !"

Rosann R.

"My first time coming here and this place is so amazing. So affordable and they have an amazing selection of glass and sunglasses. Emma and Senneca are so amazing. They are so friendly and have amazing customer service. I highly suggest going in for any and all of your glasses/sunglasses needs."

Jacelyn H., Arroyo Grande, CA.

"I've been coming here for years. I have developed great relationships with some of the staff that has been here for years. Also, new staff members have been really helpful. I recommend this office to everyone I know."

Marcos R., Santa Maria, CA

"Their customer service is great! I used to go to two different optometry offices before becoming a patient here and I'm so glad I switched over here. The staff is always so helpful and not to mention they're all bilingual which it's a huge plus! They answered all my questions with such a friendly attitude. I was greeted as soon as I walked in. Their vibe is just awesome. I highly recommend! Thank you to Lucy who helped me choose some nice Gucci glasses I'm so in love with them."

Esme R., Santa Maria, CA

"I am glad I found this place. I had gone to another optometry office and it was not a great experience. As soon as I walked in I noticed how busy it was, but the receptionist acknowledged me right away. Esmeralda answered most of my questions but she made sure that an optician helped me with all my glasses needs. David made sure that all my questions were answered. My glasses took about a week to be ready, which was great! You have gained a long-time patient!"
