Our Eye Doctors

5 (1)Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet our doctors:

Dr. Bridget Tsao, O.D.

Dr Bridget Tsao grew up in Dobbs Ferry, Westchester, NY.  There she studied piano, violin, French and played varsity tennis. In a move to the west coast, she graduated from Occidental College with a degree in biochemistry (Barack Obama was a classmate).

She completed her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia.  Her specialty training included contact lens research and development, low vision technology and ocular pathology.  This advanced training helped her on humanitarian trips with the Flying Samaritans providing eye care to the underserved in Mexico.

Dr. Tsao is a past board member of the Ojai Children’s Home Society, Ojai Education Foundation, and Soule Park Women’s Golf Club.

Currently she serves on the Board of Directors for the Ojai Music Festival and is Chair of the Bravo Committee, an outreach program providing music education for the Ojai Unified School District.  She also enjoys her time on the finance committee of the Ojai Presbyterian Church. Dr. Tsao was recently appointed to the ARC Board, an organization that is dedicated to helping adults with disabilities to live independently. Her current hobby is golf (she loves a challenge) and visiting her 2 granddaughters in Austin.

Dr. Bruce Brockman, O.D.

Dr. Bruce Brockman was born and raised in Shawano, a rural community in northeastern Wisconsin. He attended the University of Wisconsin Madison on a full music scholarship playing the French horn.

Dr. Brockman moved to Southern California to pursue his professional degree at the Southern California College of Optometry. He received several academic honors including the Corning Low Vision Award for low vision expertise and detection. He also served as President of the Optometric Honor Society.

He interned at the Los Angeles Veterans Clinic and also the Indian Health Facility in White River, Arizona. He enjoys seeing families from infants to great-grandparents. Keeping patient's vision healthy and finding the right vision solution for each patient's needs are two of his highest goals.

Dr. Brockman has served on the Board for the Chamber of Commerce and is currently president of the Rotary Club of Ojai (2008-2009). His favorite activity outside the office is golf- which may explain the high handicap! On an occasional Sunday he plays his French horn or sings tenor at the Ojai Presbyterian Church.
