Long-time Solana Beach optometrist Dr. Michael Foyle merged his optometry practice with Dr. Stephen Moffett and joined Encinitas Vision in August 2022. Dr. Foyle's desire was to spend less time managing a busy eye care office and have more time to focus on what he loves doing most -- being an eye doctor -- while maintaining his commitment to providing the highest standard of vision care to his patients.
His love of optometry and helping people see better began at an early age, starting with a part-time job as a lens lab worker at a prestigious optometry practice in West Los Angeles. As a teenage lens lab worker, and eventual lab manager, he witnessed how the owner was a stickler for quality and accuracy, an impression that lasted with him his entire career. He entered optometry school with several years of practical experience in comparison to his student peers, and was the youngest to graduate at age 23 from the Southern California College of Optometry.
Upon graduation, Dr. Foyle desired to live and work in North San Diego County because of the many surf trips he made to the area while in school. For more than 40 years, his patients in the Solana Beach area have benefitted from Dr. Foyle's progressive care with his continual investment in ophthalmic technologies, life-long learning beyond continuing education requirements, and ensuring accessible and effective communication with his patients. His goal has been, and continues to be, that each of his patients leave his exam chair completely satisfied with their eye care experience. He attributes his commitment to patient satisfaction as to why he has had a decades-long successful optometry practice.
Dr. Foyle looks forward to seeing his Solana Beach patients at Encinitas Vision, and welcomes new patients as well! To schedule an eye exam with Dr. Foyle, call (760) 634-1957
