Whittier Doctor Ardaya Given Top Award for California

We are incredibly proud to announce that our very own Dr. David Ardaya was selected as the 2022 Optometrist of the Year by the California Optometric Association! He received the surprise award in San Francisco at the annual COA House of Delegates meeting.

Dr. Ardaya is an active member of the COA and many other aspects of the eyecare field and a published author and subject of articles on leading developments in the industry.

In 2009, Dr. Ardaya was awarded the “Young Optometrist of the Year” by the California Optometric Association.

“I’m deeply grateful and humbled to receive this award. The California Optometric Association has done so much to improve the optometric profession and promote access to care for patients. I’m excited to continue this journey with my friends at the COA.”
