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.
