Strolling into Burlingame Optical is more like the encountering the lobby of a five-star hotel than an eyewear shop. Yet, sure enough, frames by Chanel, Robert Marc, and Chrome Hearts—amid a sea of other designers—fill the shop’s elegant cherry cabinets just waiting to be tested. Eyewear specialists pace the marbled floor, guiding the nearsighted and farsighted to the perfect lenses, from single-vision to digital progressives. At an onsite lab, technicians perform finish grindings and fortify spectacles with anti-reflective coatings and miniature wiper blades.

Dr. William Ellis sharpened his corneal crafting skills at the side of Professor Syvatslov Fyodorov, the father of modern radial keratotomy, and has since completed more than 50,000 LASIK procedures in his career. With a keen focus on personal attention and individual patient needs, he performs every laser vision surgery at all six Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center locations, relying on an armory of advanced technology to map eye terrain, correct vision, and prepare patrons to work as a chameleon’s parole officer. Further showcasing his knowledge on the subject, Dr. Ellis has written a medical textbook on eye surgery entitled Keratotomy Surgery for Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.
