Our professional staff at Empire Eye Doctors would like to extend a warm welcome to all who want to experience a high level of family eye care, located in the heart of downtown Santa Rosa. Our practice is family owned and operated dating back to the early 1950’s when Vernon F. Lightfoot, M.D. began his practice in Santa Rosa, CA.

Empire Eye Doctors Medical Group Bringing your world into focus

When Vernon retired, the practice was then continued by his two sons Dan R. Lightfoot, M.D. and David V. Lightfoot, M.D who have special interests in retina, glaucoma, cataracts and intraocular implants. They soon established a reputation as leaders in the optometric community taking on the name Empire Eye Doctors Medical Group, Inc. and established an Optical Department that features Licensed Opticians, an in-house lab and hundreds of Designer Frames. In order to provide complete service to their patients and customers they have extended their practice to include:

THANK YOU to all of our Northbay supporters, we love you!

revive drinks, we are a sustainably driven and progressively minded kombucha company. We brew, ferment and bottle our deliciously refreshing kombucha in Sonoma County! Our kombucha is raw, live and full of love, hand crafted in small batches made with all organic ingredients and fair-trade teas. Our always be working towards a more sustainable future and progressive business culture. Our lovingly create drinks that make your body/mind/soul feel great and you can feel even better about buying/supporting. What does it mean to be a sustainably driven and progressively minded company? It means we are committed to lowering and eventually 100% offsetting our carbon footprint through innovative alternative energy solutions and becoming a zero landfill production facility. We will prove that by "walking the talk" with our daily business practices. The driving force of this mission is our bottle exchange program. A deposit is collected on each revive kombucha sold to ensure bottles are returned for reuse. As a manufacturer/distributor we are committed to achieving the goal of sustainably transporting all of our products and we think we are 99% there...what about the last 1%? Well, we are the first to admit we aren’t perfect and we know that there is always something we can learn to do better. What we are proud of...our bottles are delivered and collected in reusable milk crates on our “buch haulers”, which run on B100 biodiesel (100% local recycled vegetable oil), from Yokayo Biofuels (Ukiah, CA). We love creating for you the highest quality products, locally and sustainably. Cheers from the buch team!
