Kara Takeda, O.D.


Our Newest Eye Doctor Treating Patients in Huntington Beach

Dr. Kara Takeda is a new addition to Pacific Eye Care! Having practiced in nearby Long Beach for the past 9 years, she is excited to join the Pacific Eye Care team. Dr. Takeda grew up in Hacienda Heights and then went on to earn her Bachelors of Science degree from California State University in Long Beach where she graduated with honors. She received her doctorate degree from the prestigious Southern California College of Optometry in 2005. While attending SCCO, Dr. Takeda received scholarships and awards for excellence in Primary Care, Vision Therapy, and Academics.

Her clinical training included internships at the VA Hospital in West Los Angeles (focusing on ocular disease and geriatrics) and the San Diego Center for Vision Care (which focused primarily on Pediatrics and Vision Therapy). Dr. Takeda is licensed in the use of therapeutic and diagnostic pharmaceutical agents, which allows her to diagnose and treat a wide range of ocular disease, including glaucoma. Dr. Takeda also specializes in fitting contact lenses on patients with keratoconus by using specialty hybrid lenses. Interested in LASIK? Dr. Takeda has undergone LASIK herself, so aside from co-managing her patient’s LASIK procedures, she is also always eager to share her personal experience with potential candidates.

When Dr. Takeda isn’t taking care of her patients, she is spending time with her husband and two young boys. She also enjoys running and playing basketball. While in college, one of her many jobs included working as a character in Disneyland. Dr. Takeda enjoys working in a private practice because it allows her the opportunity to establish long-term relationships with her patients while providing quality care.
