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.
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.
Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
Since 1997, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Ferzaad Moosa has performed more than 60,000 LASIK procedures, gaining a level of expertise that inspired Top 10 LASIK to name him one of California's 10 best surgeons. After receiving his MD from Harvard Medical School, the doctor served an internship in Internal Medicine at UCLA and completed a three-year residency at the esteemed Doheny Eye Institute.
Dr. Moosa corrects nearsightedness and farsightedness with increasingly advanced laser systems, employing wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea while reducing negative side effects such as poor night vision or spontaneous disco-ball mirages. The machine also tracks the position of the eye 200 times every second, instantly pausing if it moves out of range.
