Patient Testimonials:

“Several years ago, our families’ long time optometrist retired from his highly respected Encinitas practice. For a long period of time we searched for an acceptable replacement and simply were unable to find an office in which we felt comfortable. Finally we happened upon Dr. Kristin Peterson- Salgado who was serving as an associate in a popular and large ophthalmology practice. Driving all the way to central San Diego for eye care was of little inconvenience considering the quality of medical attention that Dr. Peterson-Salgado consistently has provided my entire family. And now gets even better. I have been informed that Kristin will soon be opening her own office of optometry in Solana Beach. Good for her…good for North County!


From Her Loyal and Appreciative Patients

S.G. and family

In 2005 I was fortunate enough to have Dr.Peterson note some suspicious appearing activity in my eyes. She was simply in the process of one of my general eye exams for reading glasses,. She suggested that I return for what she called a “threshold visual field test”. I thoroughly trust her judgment and advice, and the personal attention she always gives. I went ahead with her recommended “field test”. She discovered that I was a victim of glaucoma and immediately prescribed a remedy medication which I continue to take every day of my life. This has been successful in keeping my eye pressure “normal” and perhaps preventing me from losing my sight. Thanks Dr. Peterson for saving my eyesight through that extra attention you always seem to give.



For me the perfect optometrist is one who is professional, resourceful, thorough yet personable. Dr. Kristin Peterson is all of the above. She has been my doctor for the last thirteen years, examining my eyes, providing relevant options and careful analysis of the choices to insure maximum effectiveness. I love my bifocal contacts and appreciate the comprehensive exams she provides to insure that my eyes are being safeguarded. Dr. Peterson treats you as a valued patient and uses all of the resources at her disposal to insure your well being. I hope to remain in her expert care for many years to come.



For the past 10 years Dr. Kristin Peterson has been a great asset and partner in my eye health. Through every step of an eye exam she’s given clear and concise explanations with friendly and compassionate professionalism. I highly recommend Dr. Kristen Peterson as your new Optometrist.
