Dr. Annalisa Fernando-Langit

Optometrist
Dr. Fernando-Langit is a native of Southern California, born and raised in sunny San Diego. She was fascinated by the field of Optometry at an early age, especially when her optometrist gave her her first pair of glasses - it changed her view of the world! She earned her bachelors of science degree in Psychobiology at UCLA and then received her Doctorate of Optometry at the Southern California College of Optometry, where she graduated with high honors. Her clinical training took place at the West LA VA Medical Center, San Diego Sharpe Hospital, Optometric Center of Los Angeles, and the Eye Care Center of Fullerton. Dr. Fernando-Langit enjoyed her training at the West LA VA Healthcare System so much that she decided to stay and pursue a post-graduate residency in Geriatrics and Hospital-Based Optometry, an additional year of training which involved specialty contact lens fittings, low vision rehabilitation services, and bedside nursing home examinations. Dr. Fernando-Langit is very compassionate and dedicated about her profession that she strives to go the "extra mile" for each and every patient, ensuring that each and everyone receive the quality eye care they deserve. She makes sure of this by educating them on proactive ways of achieving optimal eye health and constantly keeps herself on top of the latest and cutting edge research and technologies in eye care. She enjoys the educational side of optometry as well and has presented a few case study posters at the American Optometry Association Annual Meeting and published an article on eye nutrition in Clinical and Refractive Optometry entitled, "Ocular Manifestations of Vitamin A Deficiency." Dr. Fernando-Langit believes her calling is not only to help people live their lives seeing well but she also loves to help those with poor sight. Those individuals who have poor vision usually are those who have suffered from certain ocular diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and/or congenital diseases. Dr. Fernando-Langit understands and empathizes with these individuals and tries to help them with challenges that they may experience with simple everyday tasks like reading, driving, and/or watching TV. By providing low vision evaluations for the visually impaired, she is able to recommend appropriate optical aids and adaptive technology for those looking to better overcome their visual challenges. In addition to providing low vision care, Dr. Fernando-Langit provides primary optometric care, medical management of ocular disease, and contact lens fittings. She is certified to fit SynergEyes hybrid lenses, a new lens technology that combines the crisp vision of a hard lens and the comfort of a soft lens. She enjoys giving back to the local community and frequently organizes vision screenings for nearby schools and senior centers and will occasionally give talks on general eye health and vision rehabilitation. She is an active member of the Low Vision Section of the California Optometric Association, Cerritos Chamber of Commerce, and the Cerritos Soroptimist Club. Dr. Fernando-Langit and her husband Dex, a computer whiz, enjoy exploring new places, fishing, reading, landscape photography, and spending quality time with their family, their young daughter and their dog, Bogart (Bogie, for short)).
