Dr. Jesse A. Camen

Dr. Camen is a full scope, California licensed optometrist with diverse experience in the private, corporate, hospital, and military sectors of primary care optometry.

After completing the pre-optometry program at Ferris State University in Michigan, Dr. Camen went on to graduate cum laude from the Illinois College of Optometry, earning both her Doctorate of Optometry and Bachelor of Science in Visual Science in 2008. Prior to serving as a Medical Officer in the U.S. Navy from 2009-2012, she developed her foundational skills while working as an Associate Optometrist for Lenscrafters.  Dr. Camen returned to private practice in 2012 and has since polished her optometric skills with nationally renowned ophthalmic surgeons both in the Chicagoland area and now in San Diego. Dr. Camen is also a recognized adjunct faculty member at two national Colleges of Optometry, and in 2010, she was hand selected for the esteemed role of Examiner in the administration of the National Board of Optometry Examination.

In her spare time, Dr. Camen stays active. She enjoys all things outdoors including rock climbing, fishing, kayaking, gardening, alfresco dining/sipping – and above all, she’s a complete animal lover! Dr. Camen is greatly looking forward to meeting you and becoming you local eye care provider.
