Dr. Billy G. Mendoza, O.D.

I am a doctor of Optometry, providing eye exams for glasses and contact lenses prescriptions and for general eye health, in which medications may be prescribed as well. I carry both the latest contact lens brands and samples of the newest solutions, and can certainly find the right fit for each patient. I am not a glasses or contacts seller, so new patients need not feel pressure to purchase from my practice. I pride myself on the excellent services that I offer -- a thorough exam, at a pace that suits the patient and at an affordable price. From infants to elders, all patients are welcome for exams. Thank you and I hope to see you soon.

A Promise to my Patients

Ever since I've earned my Doctorate in Optometry in 2010, I have returned to my hometown of Reno to provide quality eye care. Because I am an independent doctor inside the Walmart Vision Center, I can take as much time that is needed to perform a very thorough eye exam. I was taught to examine the eye in many different ways and I always consider an eye problem through many different approaches. Glasses, contacts, and treatment of eye disease, I promise to guard the vision of each person that comes to me.
