Dr. Zdenek (as we fondly call him 'Doc Z') was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, California attending Northridge Military Academy as a young boy.  After graduating Rush Medical University in Chicago, Illinois, Doc moved his family back to sunny southern California in 1981 to open up his private Ophthalmology practice with his father, Dr. Al Zdenek in Reseda.  The very same building that Doc is still practicing in today!  

Even though Doc, himself, did not serve our Country, his father Dr. Al Zdenek was a Medical Doctor in the Army stationed at an Army base (near Point Mugu) 1946-1952.  

A believer in technology, Doc has invested in the latest technology to assist him in identifying, diagnosing, and ultimately treating his patients' complaints.  Implementing new techniques and technology in surgery has helped thousands of his patients to see clearer and stay worry free.  He wants to put this technology to 'good' use.  With all the political turmoil that is constantly in the media, Doc feels that our Service Members and their families should not have to get caught in the middle, at least not with their eyes.
