Edwin resides in West Covina along with his wife and 2 dogs - Ziggy (Wheaton terrier) and Mika (terrier mix).
He is very excited to be part of the Covina Eyecare family and hopes you will come to see him so that he can provide you the quality eye care you deserve.

These include contacts for people with corneal diseases such as Keratoconus and Pellucids Marginal Degeneration, people with quickly progressing near-sightedness using Orthokeratology and people with irregular corneal shapes using scleral lenses.
Dr. Wu is a member of the American Optometric Association and the California Optometric Association.
Dr. Wu is tri-lingual and speaks Japanese, Chinese and English. He enjoys skiing, tennis, singing with guitar, and traveling. He has also recently started a really cool gardening hobby where he grows different types of edible produce in his yard using a somewhat sophisticated irrigation system
Gina is the Covina Eyecare family's mom and office manager. She has been with the office since the beginning when we were a joint office with Great Smiles Dental Center (who by the way are still our fantastic dentists Dr. Bradley and Suga) some ~36 years ago. Many of our patients know Gina well and have enjoyed having a familiar face when they visit us for all these years.
Gina enjoys decorating for the holidays and road trips. She also has a large wonderful family with 2 children and many grandchildren.
Gina's knowledge and experience in the optical field have been essential in making the practice what it is today.
Maria has been with the Covina Eyecare family since the start of her optical career 3 years ago. Maria joined the family after attending Northwest College where she trained to be an optician.
