Dr. Russell Hosaka has been in private practice in Torrance for over 31 years, building strong bonds with patients and the community through dedicated and professional service. At Advanced Family Eye Care, Hosaka and his team of licensed opticians and optical style experts outfit clients with contact lenses or designer frames from brands such as Oakley, Gucci, La Font, and Hugo Boss. The clinic’s high-tech exams precisely assess each eyeball’s shape and prescription needs via computerized auto-refractions.
In the middle of Olympic Optics, an eyewear-filled island beckons to guests with rows of gently illuminated shades. Dozens of brands line the glass cases, ranging from affordable Sunclouds to high-end offerings from makers such as Police, Givenchy, Versace, and Spy.
Helmed by managing optometrist Dr. Terry Khraishi O.D., the staff at CCV Optica helps to protect patients' eyesight through routine examinations and thorough screenings, with a special focus on serving the Hispanic community. Bilingual specialists inspect eyeballs for signs of glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetes, or fit faces to frames from brands such as Bebe, Ray-Ban, Vera Wang, and Timex.
In 1968, Dr. Kunal Shah and Dr. Robert Frohn opened an optometry business fresh out of medical school. More than 40 years later, their treatments have advanced and their office has grown, but their mission hasn't changed. To this day, they still put each patient’s eye care first, using their combined 60 years of experience to customize treatments for each patient. Their services range from comprehensive examinations to remedies for astigmatism, dry-eye syndrome, and macular degeneration, all provided by staff who speak both English and Spanish. The doctors even treat specialized cases, helping patients in need of low-vision and pediatric optometry. They also venture into complex treatments, such as LASIK and cataract surgery, with the use of advanced technology. After exams or procedures, patients in need of glasses can pick out a new pair of frames in an onsite eyewear boutique featuring brands such as Gucci, Ray Ban, Coach, and more, and fill their new prescriptions thanks to the office’s lens-sculpting services.
Whether patients speak English or Spanish, there's little chance they'll have trouble communicating at Salud Digna. That's because Dr. Sergio Ortiz, the 20-year optometry veteran who runs the office, works with an entirely bilingual staff. During comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Ortiz checks vision and screens for diseases from cataracts to diabetes. Staffers then help patients select from a supply of frames that includes styles from Ray-Ban, DKNY, and Anne Klein.
Exams aside, the team does good for more than just the eyes. Licensed as a community clinic by the state of California, Salud provides high-quality optometry on a flexible scale, allowing them to help as many people as possible and ensuring that every customer who chooses them is helping to get others affordable eye care.
Dr. Sy Rosenblum, his son, Dr. David, Dr. Julie Bhindi, and Dr. Sheryl A. Bruce form a team of optometrists who advise on ocular wellness and style alongside a talented staff. Vision exams determine prescriptions, general health, and lashes' spelling abilities. Going above and beyond standard checkups, the clinic also provides pediatric eye care, as well as disease management and trauma care.
After clients' eyes have been assessed, they may accessorize with contacts or a new pair of glasses complete with lenses crafted in the on-site lab. Perched inside elegant, glossy display cases, designer frames by Ray-Ban, Oliver Peoples, and Dolce & Gabbana reflect the offices' crisp, modern lighting and dark wood accents. Specialty eyewear offers frames and lenses for customers involved with athletics, hobbies, and occupations that place specific demands on peepers, such as working with computers or engaging in varsity-level staring contests.
Outside of promoting eye health, the practice champions local involvement through its commitment to community service. It has served as a headquarters for Rachel's Hug-a-Bears, a group founded by Dr. David's daughter that sends teddy bears and notes to children in hospitals. Through other organizations, the doctors have also donated their services, free of charge, to patients in need.
