Dr. Tamar Kaloustian graduated from the University of California, Irvine as a member of the Campuswide Honors Program and with a magna cum laude in 1995, She then graduated with honors from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1999 as a member of the honors Phi Beta Kappa society. She created Market Optometrix in 2001 with the goal of incorporating affordable and quality eye care along with fashion forward eyewear. In 2011, Dr. Tamar transferred Market Optometrix to Dr. Melikians care so that she may spend more time with her family and children. However, since she feels so dedicated to her patients, she continues to work part time to care for their needs. Dr. Tamar has always been most concerned about treating the whole person and discussing all options, not just treatment with medication. She has also mastered the art of prescribing. Dr. Tamar will measure what you like (your subjective refraction), what you need (your objective refraction), and what will actually be the most comfortable correction for your every day needs (the art of prescribing). One of the ways she guarantees her patients will be happy with their final prescriptions is by using trial lenses to show her patients any change in prescription and discussing different lens options. So do not worry if you cannot decide between ‘one or two’ or if both options look the same,  Dr. Tamar will always double check every answer to guarantee a result that you will be pleased with. She is an avid reader and continuously stays well-informed on new and upcoming treatments, both medically and nutritionally.
