Dr. Peter Yoon was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California. He attended the University of California, Berkeley and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. After working for a couple years and deciding that engineering wasn't for him, he earned his Doctorate of Optometry from the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Optometry and completed a Primary Eye Care residency at the VA New Jersey Health Care System, with an emphasis in Ocular Disease and Low Vision.
As a student, he was president of SUNY's Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH) chapter, as well as a member of the Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society and Contact Lens Education and Research Club.
In his leisure time, Dr. Yoon likes to discover good food and coffee, explore nature with a camera, browse Netflix, and play Wordle.
