About Our San Clemente Optometric Office

Griffin Optometric Group's downtown San Clemente office is located in the heart of San Clemente, and serves patients throughout San Clemente, Capistrano Beach, San Juan Capistrano, and Dana Point. In this office, we have a comfortable and spacious waiting area, three exam rooms, and a contact fitting and training room. We also have an in-house lab where we can clean, tighten, adjust, straighten, and repair frames as well as grind lenses to fit frames. Our large selection of stylish, brand-name eyewear features a great range of frames for every budget and also includes a dedicated area for kids eyewear. This is also one of the few offices in South Orange County with a Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT advanced retinal imaging machine for incredibly accurate glaucoma and macular degeneration readings. Additionally, we make special accommodations for those with service dogs; we have treats at our reception desk and can watch the dog upfront during the visit.

Visions of the Past

When you visit, please take some time to peruse our vintage photo collection of old San Clemente on display throughout our office. Also on display, near the front desk, is a collection of antique glasses that we recently acquired. This unique display of glasses captures how dramatically frames and lenses have changed over time.


The current Del Mar location is actually the Griffin Optometric Group's third San Clemente office location. Our first office was on El Camino Real, opened by our father, Dr. Ted P. Griffin, in 1957. In 1973, he moved the office to Avenida Del Mar, near the San Clemente Public Library. Then, in 1995, the office was moved to the present location to provide a larger and more comfortable environment to better serve our patients.

Our downtown San Clemente office will always be considered home, since this is where Dr. Ted Griffin raised his sons and daughter. Today, Dr. Griffin's family continues to be involved with a variety of local San Clemente organizations.
