Dr. Allen L. Beede
I am a native of San Jose, born in Mountain View and raised in San Jose. I attended Saint Mary's College where I received my Bachelor of Science degree with honors and graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry where I received my Doctorate in Optometry. My experiences range from working at a Veteran's hospital, U.S. Military base, and several community clinics. I have worked side by side with eye surgeons at Stanford to co-manage laser refractive surgeries and treat eye diseases. I have the prestigious honor of being a National Board Examiner for Optometry since 2003, where I participate in determining whether potential optometrists have adequate clinical skills for national and state licensure. I have been a member of the American Optometric Association and the California Optometric Association since 1995, the Santa Clara Optometric Society since 1999, and the National Board Examiners of Optometry since 2003.

Dr. Lisa Y. Shiroishi
I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Southern California, and received my Doctorate degree from the Southern California College of Optometry. I have a great deal of experience in primary care optometry, including pediatric vision and low vision rehabilitation. I have worked at several centers for the blind and partially sighted, Veterans hospitals, and have worked at inner-city clinics to provide health care for children. I have dedicated my time doing vision screenings at public schools, AIDS Project Los Angeles, and many community clinics. I am Board certified in the treatment and management of ocular diseases and have received glaucoma certification. I am a member of the American Optometric Association, California Optometric Association, and Santa Clara Optometric Society. Outside the practice, I enjoy every minute with my two young children. If I get a moment or two, I find happiness and relaxation through music, theater, gardening, and cooking.
Our practice has been caring for patients since 1902.
Dr. Beede and Dr. Shiroishi have been practicing here since 1999, when we purchased the practice from Dr. Robert Madden. Dr. Madden practice here from 1965 to 1999. Dr. Madden purchased the practice from Dr. Robert Osborn in 1965. Dr. Osborn practiced from 1935 to 1965. Dr. Osborn took over the practice from his father in 1935. His father was Dr. Alfonso Osborn. Dr. Alfonso Osborn was the founder of the practice.
Dr. Osborn opened the practice in downtown San Jose in 1902 on First Street.
Dr. Osborn moved his practice to 259 Meridian Avenue. The practice stayed here until 1978 when Dr. Madden moved it to its current location 240 Meridian Avenue Suite 3.
