About Us

California Eye Specialists was founded by Marcus J. Lemley, MD who began practicing ophthalmology in Pasadena, California in October 1974. Under his direction, the 1990's saw the practice grow from one small Pasadena office to a collection of offices across the San Gabriel Valley as well as the Eye Surgical Center in Glendale.

2016 has introduced an additional 3 California Eye Specialists locations, establishing a brand new presence in the Inland Empire with offices in Redlands and Rancho Cucamonga as well an additional San Gabriel Valley office in the city of San Gabriel.

Our devoted providers and staff are known to work seamlessly together to provide the highest quality patient care available in the areas of Cornea and External Diseases, Glaucoma, Vitreoretinal Diseases, Neuro-Ophthalmology, Oculoplastic Services, and Optometry.

R. Alan Shelton, MD, our medical director, is a comprehensive ophthalmologist and an industry pioneer. He is highly valued in the field for his professional expertise in ophthalmic pharmacology, technology, and surgical advancements; particularly in cataract surgery, specializing in state-of-the-art premium intraocular lens implants. He was recently granted the honor of being the first ophthalmologist in Southern California to utilize the newly FDA approved Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) intraocular lens in his cataract patients.

In addition, California Eye Specialists has recently opened a research department which utilizes a selection of our highly-trained staff and providers to team up with leading pharmaceutical companies to perform clinical trials in pharmacology which aid in the introduction of life-improving medications to the market.
