Welcome to Allied Gardens Family Optometry
Your Optometrist in San Diego, CA.

Call us at 619-583-1000 today.

Our Mission is to provide personalized eye care in a warm,
welcoming environment for your whole family.

For over 40 years, our practice continues to serve the eye care needs of local San Diego families. The health of your eyes is very important, which is why we recommend yearly wellness checks.

Dr. Rosina Cullins (previously Dr. Rosina Monaco)  tests for eye diseases at every exam, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma. Glaucoma is a silent eye disease that does not affect eyesight at the onset, so those with "perfect vision" should still have annual exams to be screened. 

Dr. Cullins administers a thorough contact lens evaluation to ensure that you are wearing the contact that work best for you. She fits contacts of all types, including extended wear, bifocals and for astigmatism.

We strive to provide you with the highest quality of prescription eye wear.  We use the highest quality lenses and lens options.  Ask us about digital lenses for the sharpest vision in progressives!  You'll have over 600 frames to choose from, varying in styles, colors, brands and sizes to help find the perfect one for you. In addition to the ophthalmic glasses for men, women and children, a wide selection of sunglasses are available.  We want you to see your best and look your best!

Meet The Doctor

Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Rosina M. Cullins,

    Allied Gardens Family Optometry has been in the Allied Gardens community since the 1960's.  Dr. Rosina Cullins has been the owner/Optometrist since 2006.  She graduated from Pennsylvania College of Optometry (now Salus University) in 2003.  Originally from Pennsylvania, she decided to make the move to California with her sister immediately upon graduating.  She now is married with 2 children and loves San Diego!  Dr. Cullins loves what she does and enjoys meeting new patients, as well as catching up with returning patients.  She takes her time making sure everyone has the best prescription possible.  She also preforms a thorough health evaluation on each patient.  Everyone is screened for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration at each exam.  She is also well versed in dry eyes, allergy eyes, and infections.   Dr. Cullins feels it is important for the patient to understand what is going on with their eyes so they can better treat and monitor themselves.


  • "I've been going to Dr. Cullin's for several years. She is extremely patient and gentle. Her staff is awesome. I highly recommend them for eye care."
