Snyder Optometry - About Us

Welcome to Snyder Optometry

With over 40 years of experience in the Alhambra and San Gabriel Valley communities, Snyder Optometry has provided thousands of patients with the highest quality care.

This tradition of excellence began when Dr. David Snyder established the practice and will continue into the future as his son, Dr. Harlan Snyder, takes over the optometry practice. Together, their legacy of care excellence will forever be apart of the community they serve.
