The Optima Team
Dedicated (ded’ e ka’ tid)
1. to devote to a specific purpose
2. devoted to work, duty
At OPTIMA, our dedicated laser team personifies both definitions. They are “dedicated” in that our team is a cohesive unit who has worked together at our practice for decades. They are loyal to each other, loyal to the practice, and loyal to our patients.
Additionally, they are a “dedicated” team in the sense that they have each been selected to be part of the cohesive unit that is specially trained and specifically designed for the technical and administrative exigencies of advanced laser and cataract surgery. Their duties are specific to the performance of laser and cataract surgery in that the vast majority of their professional activities relate to the pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative care of the laser and cataract patient.
At OPTIMA Hayward we have 40 employees. Over one-third of our staff is fully dedicated to the facilitation and performance of advanced surgery.
At OPTIMA, we are both proud and honored to be associated with our team!
