Thank you to our very valued patients for being a part of the Foresight Optometry family! We look forward to seeing you for all of your eye care needs for years to come.
You may or may not have heard that we’ve had some changes recently in our office. Dr. Jeanette Hochstatter is pleased to announce that as of May 2016 she has turned her practice over to Dr. Joy Michelsen and Dr. John Michelsen. Dr. Hochstatter has decided to take a step back from full-time patient care here at Foresight Optometry although she will continue to see patients on a part-time basis.
“I am so excited to have found two skilled doctors to take the helm here at Foresight Optometry! Both Dr. Joy and Dr. John value careful patient care as much as I do and I have great confidence in their skills and their kindness.”
“Just like Dr. Hochstatter, we pride ourselves in bringing the latest in technology to our patients. We are also bringing new services to Foresight Optometry such as treatment and management of glaucoma, online patient portal to access your health information, and expanding the scope of insurances accepted at at Foresight Optometry which will allow us to serve more of our community.”
-Dr. John Michelsen
Your eye health and eyewear needs will continue to be in great hands!
Drs. Joy and John Michelsen met while attending the University of California – Berkeley Optometry School and have been happily married since 2009. They both have volunteered in optometric missions to provide eye care services to those in need in locations such as Chile, Thailand, and Palau. Dr. Joy Michelsen and Dr. John Michelsen also own AccuVision EyeCare Optometry in Livermore, which is also a full scope, a 5-star rated, optometric practice.
