Dr. Maylin Gonzalez, O.D. established Eyed LA in the fall of 2012 in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. She has worked in Optical shops since the age of fifteen, optics propelled her forward to the New England College of Optometry in Boston. For years she gained experience as a doctor in New York City, still she hungered for sunshine.
