Having experienced vision problems firsthand and knowing how frustrating it is to have an undetected vision problem that affects eye-hand coordination, Dr. Benny Shao has made it his mission to help his patients achieve maximum visual function and is always excited when his patients are able to do things that they couldn’t do before.
Dr. Benny Shao received his doctorate from the Southern California College of Optometry and is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (www.covd.org). He is also an associate member of the Optometric Extension Program (www.oepf.org) and the College of Syntonic Optometry (www.csovision.org). Dr. Shao is a Bay Area native who received his bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in Neurobiology and has been in practice since 2001. In his spare time, Dr. Shao enjoys playing guitar, drums, and hiking.

  • Dr. Benny Shao is board certified in vision therapy. There are fewer than 10 doctors in the entire San Francisco Bay Area who have undergone this certification process.
  • All of Dr. Shao’s patients are under constant supervision during vision therapy, they are not simply handed off to a vision therapist.
  • We see patients at more than one location throughout the Bay Area.
  • We focus on vision therapy alone rather than on providing eyewear. We focus on providing the most in depth neuro-optometric exam and vision treatment possible.
