Dr. Garrick Peterson graduated from U.C. Berkeley Optometry School in 1988. His first work after that was to start an optometry clinic in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, in Africa. There he was able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of eye health and refractive conditions, and provided first world quality eyecare in a third world setting. After serving for seven and a half years in Africa, Dr. Peterson returned to California to work with two ophthalmology groups. There he built upon his experiences and gained California State Board certification in treatment and management of ocular disease. In May of 2003, Dr. Peterson entered solo private practice with two offices; one in Lindsay and one in Visalia. In 2007 Dr. Peterson was appointed President of the Tulare-Kings County Optometric Association. He has served in that capacity until February 2011 when he became past-president. Vision Source!
