Nearsightedness impairs one’s ability to drive, read, and make the crucial distinction between truth serum and chocolate milk. Guard your secrets with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a comprehensive eye exam (a $140 value) at Monterey Park Optometry, plus a $125 credit toward a complete set of prescription glasses, a 50% discount on a contact lens fitting, and $39 toward an annual supply of contact lenses.
Dr. Scott Lam, Monterey Park Optometry’s experienced and licensed optometrist, crafts crystal-clear vision with thorough eye exams, fine-tuned contact lenses, and stylish glasses. During the comprehensive exam, Dr. Lam scrutinizes eyes to identify a wide range of sight-related problems beyond nearsightedness, farsightedness, or foresightedness. Patients read letters off eye charts to test visual acuity, scour specialized images to check for hereditary colorblindness, and undergo cover tests to track eye movement. Advanced technology determines exact prescriptions through a retinoscopy that tracks light bouncing off the whites and auto-refractors that calibrate the necessary lens power. Dilating drops enlarge pupils for 20–30 minutes, revealing eyes’ interiors to assess risk factors for disease and help patients compete with puppies in a cute-off.
Glasses wearers can receive a $125 credit toward a complete set of prescription lenses and fashion-forward, functional frames from notable and boutique brands such as Silhouette, Ray-Ban, Guess, Flexon, and Elle ($245+ for frames with lenses). Customers can also consult the online eyeglass guide for advice on which looks best fit their lifestyle and which are meant to treat overactive heat vision.
Faces seeking subtler sight enhancement receive a 50% discount on a contact-lens fitting ($65/spherical; $85/astigmatic), wherein Dr. Lam measures eyes’ curvature before peepers don trial lenses to ensure a proper fit, despite cornea’s insistence that they have always been a size 4. Dr. Lam recommends a follow-up visit to make sure that lenses correctly cradle eyes before patients apply an additional $39 credit toward annual supply orders ($200+), which can be picked up at the office or mailed to homes.
MPO Eyecare Optometry
Dr. Scott Lam administers eye exams with a focus on patient education, carefully explaining the different steps for determining a prescription and finding symptoms of damage or disease. After taking a peek at their peepers, he leads guests to the office's showroom, where he and his staff help them pick stylish frames. Instead of concentrating solely on fit, they discuss the client's tastes and lifestyle, hunting down the best match from popular brands and daring boutiques. From classic Coach and Ray-Ban frames to vintage-style specs from Mandalay in Japan, their inventory spans the fashion spectrum.
Dr. Lam also applies his expertise to services that don't focus solely on spectacles. He performs contact-lens fittings, LASIK consultations, and exams for children. Whether searching for signs of glaucoma or helping clients finally read the corny jokes inscribed on the head of every sewing pin, he prioritizes an inviting, customized style of care. Visitors are even allowed to choose from one of five languages: English, Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese, and Spanish.
