Our Story

Dr. Vivienne Velasco founded iFocus Vision Center in 2009 to better serve the Las Vegas community. She received her Bachelors of Science degree in 1999 from the University of California, San Diego where she majored in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience with minors in music and psychology. In 2005, she received her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry in her hometown of Fullerton, CA. The internships she completed during her last year in optometry school afforded her a well rounded background in all facets of optometry. Her first internship landed her at the prestigious Wellish Vision Institute in Las Vegas to learn how to manage cornea, glaucoma, and LASIK patients. She then headed to the San Diego Center for Vision Care a vision therapy clinic where she learned to care for people affected with visual disabilities caused by crossed eyes, amblyopia (lazy eye), and traumatic brain injuries. Her final internship was at the Santa Barbara Veteran Affairs clinic where she cared for the wonderful people who have served our country.

After graduating, she moved to her new home in Las Vegas to complete her residency at the Southern Nevada Veterans Affairs clinic with an emphasis on ocular disease and low vision. During this time she became licensed and certified in the use of the anterior segment laser to treat certain eye conditions through the Northeastern State University of Oklahoma. At the completion of her residency in 2006, she became certified in the treatment and management of glaucoma. Through hard work and a rigorous process, she was appointed a Fellow in the esteemed American Academy of Optometry in 2007. When she is not caring for her patients, you can find Dr. Velasco doing something else she is passionate about – volleyball! Although she may be vertically challenged, she plays with as much heart and dedication as she uses to treat her patients.
