Augie Optical Dispensary

The Augie Optical Dispensary is conveniently located inside the Ron Conway Family Gateway Medical Building at UCSF's Mission Bay campus. We are a one-stop shop for patients needing eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, protective eyewear and accessories. We carry frames for people of all ages, from infants to adults, with an emphasis on pediatrics, so you'll find a large selection to meet your child's needs. To provide the best impact resistance for children's eyewear, we recommend either polycarbonate and Trivex lenses.

We welcome self-pay patients as well as those with VSP insurance. Outside prescriptions are welcome, and no appointments are necessary. However, eye exams are not offered at the Augie Optical Dispensary. If you need to schedule an exam, please call (415) 353-2800 for an appointment with a UCSF optometrist or ophthalmologist.
