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.
At Folsom Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, Dr. Shahriar Mabourakh designs procedures to suit clients’ specific needs, ensuring that their experiences at the clinic are as positive as their results. Mabourakh and his staff enhance natural features with plastic surgery and improve skin texture and tone with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials, and laser genesis, a treatment designed to reduce fine lines and shrink pores. Injectable treatments, including Botox and Juvederm, minimize wrinkles by improving the volume of skin or impeding muscle activity that causes facial lines.
With the slow hiss of water through machinery, the flat surfaces of the hydraulic press carefully come together with 20 tons of force. Between them, an array of raw fruits and vegetables flatten, yielding every last drop of their nutritious vitamins, minerals, and plant enzymes into a pulpy liquid. The workers of Pure Juice Detox bottle the nutritious ambrosia, pack it up, and send it home with clients, who purge their bodies of toxins with daily regimens of these raw-plant cocktails. The staff packages the juices in ready-to-go three-, five-, and eight-day menus, handily numbering each bottle so customers know which juice is which.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
Headed by Dr. Anil K. Gandhi, the Fountain Of Youth Surgical Center transforms bodies with state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures. The developer of Awake Breast Augmentation—which uses local anesthesia to reduce surgery time and mimimize the dangers of blood loss—Dr. Gandhi is dedicated to helping his patients look their best while maintaining their safety. In addition to full-fledged surgery, Dr. Gandhi oversees less intrusive makeovers, including Botox injections, laser liposuction, and Sharpie drawings of fetching facial hair.
Los Cerritos Optometry's Dr. Chenh Vong and his staffers—who speak English, Armenian, Spanish, and Vietnamese—keep eyes healthy with services such as routine eye exams and myopia control, giving patients a wide range of options for addressing prescription changes. After the doctor checks them for eye problems such as glaucoma or 1-D vision, patients can pop in a pair of contact lenses or slip on a pair of stylish frames from Gucci, Coach, or Prada to pull back the veil of encroaching blurriness.
