Unifeye Vision Partners (UVP), a leading network of comprehensive eye care providers, announced the completion of a strategic partnership with Oceanside-based Pendleton Eye Center (“PEC”) in Southern California. This practice represents UVP’s sixth practice partnership in California, and its second partnership in the greater San Diego region.
Located in Oceanside, California – very near Camp Pendleton – Pendleton Eye Center was founded in 1997 by Dr. Robert Pendleton. A native of San Diego, Dr. Pendleton went to college, earned his medical degree, and practiced ophthalmology in multiple markets including Chicago and New York before returning to his roots in 1997 and founding Pendleton Eye Center. His team, which includes one O.D. and 7 staff, delivers friendly care, patient focus, and a commitment to innovative technologies in all areas of vision care and vision improvement. The practice offers a one-stop shop for all vision needs from routine eye exams, glasses, and contacts through complex vision care treatment and surgery in cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal care.

This affiliation enhances our access to technological innovations and will facilitate growth and the expansion of our services. It will also allow us to continue to deliver the same premium eyecare experience for our patients for generations to come.”
“We are very excited to welcome the team at Pendleton Eye Center to the UVP community,” said Marty Rash, CEO of Unifeye Vision Partners. “Dr. Pendleton and his team have built a highly successful ophthalmology practice focusing on patient-centric care, individualized treatment plans, and service at every stage of the vision spectrum. We are privileged to work with some of the most talented eye care professionals in the country, and through this new partnership – to being able to serve more patients and improving the quality of lives in Southern California.”
