Mission Bay Optical Dispensary

The UCSF Mission Bay Optical Dispensary is a one-stop shop for patients who need eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, protective eyewear or related accessories. We carry frames for ages 8 and up. Eyewear for children under 8 is available at the UCSF Augie Optical Dispensary, also at the Mission Bay campus.

We welcome self-pay patients as well as those with San Francisco Health Plan and VSP insurance. Outside prescriptions are fine, and no appointment is necessary.

Eye exams are not offered at the Mission Bay Optical Dispensary but are available in the same building on the third and fourth floors. To schedule an eye exam with a UCSF optometrist or ophthalmologist, contact the UCSF Comprehensive Ophthalmology & Optometry Clinic by calling (415) 353-2020.
