As a Southern California native, Dr. Lam graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from UC San Diego, which is known to have one of the best biology programs in the United States. Soon after, he crossed the country with a commitment to be a professional eye doctor and earned his Doctor of Optometry degree from SUNY in New York, New York.
After receiving his Doctorate in Optometry, Dr. Lam began working for privately owned practices and Lens Crafters for 3 years in the greater San Gabriel Valley area. He opened his first optometry practice in the Glendale vicinity providing patients and their families with excellent eye care services, including children (ages 4 and up) eye examination, contact lens fitting, eye surgery co-management, adult eye care, and dry eye management. With this experience he decided to return to his “roots” in the City of Monterey Park to provide the best eye care services for his local community.
After the passing of Dr. Joseph Peek, a great optometrist on his own, Dr. Lam decided to help those that had relied on Dr. Joseph Peek’s Optometry. With a clear vision of the future, Dr. Lam opened up MPO EyeCare in the heart of the city and began practice immediately.
In 2012, Dr. Lam relocated MPO EyeCare from Monterey Park, CA to Alhambra, CA as a more central location for serving his patients throughout San Gabriel, Pasadena, Arcadia, Monterey Park, and even Los Angeles.
Dr. Lam’s goal and passion has always been to provide friendly and personal eye care services to all. He is known for his thorough and educational eye examinations. Dr. Lam is also qualified to diagnose and treat eye diseases, such as common infections and glaucoma, an eye disorder that may lead to blindness if untreated.
As an optometrist, Dr. Scott Lam has increased the quality of life for his patients throughout Southern California since 2004 and continues to do so to this day at MPO EyeCare.
