I had a freak accident on New Years Eve with a cork hitting my eye (yes that actually happens to people LOL). I had traumatic hyphema but I was very fortunate that I didn't lose my eye. The ER referred me to follow up with Monterey County Eye Associates. When I called, they were able to get me in right away. Dr. Dautremont was assigned to my case and she and the whole staff were amazing with helping me. The Dr made sure to follow up with her several times to make sure I was healing properly and I'm grateful to say I am completely fine now. I will absolutely be going back for my yearly eye exam with them. Thank you MCEA!

Excellent opthalmologist.  Did Brilliant cataract surgery for me, and I stopped wearing glasses or lenses for the first time in 50 years.  After that he helped diagnose my husband who had a rare neurological disease causing blurriness in his sight.  As a result, after many months we were able to get a diagnosis and understanding of my husband's disease.

He Is the BEST!!!

Dr. Del Piero was professional and kind. He found two holes in my retina and fixed them with a barrage laser two days later. His staff were thoughtful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
