The team at Dr. Friedman Optometrists & Associates strives to make the world a lot less fuzzy for patients. With an onsite optical lab and more than 10,000 contact lenses in stock, the staff can send most visitors home with a new pair of eyeglasses or contacts on the same day as their exam. The office's collection of more than 5,000 designer frames runs the gamut of styles, suiting each person's unique personality. Besides correcting vision problems, the team can also diagnose and treat medical issues, such as eye infections or damage caused by counting every pixel on an HDTV. Dr. Friedman's team also speaks Spanish.
Hossein Silani began a legacy when he opened his first eye-care facility in Beverly Hills more than 30 years ago. Today, he operates multiple stores with his sons, Kambiz and Kamran, including Super Vision Optical, a Beverly Hills eyewear staple for more than 60 years. Rows of modern frames from Gucci, Armani, Carrera, and SUPER line the shop’s shelves and contrast with vintage aviators from Ray-Ban, which invite patrons to switch their cell phones to flight mode before they try on a pair. To ensure that frames fit both faces and prescriptions, optometrists Dr. Bita Shokouh and Dr. Kambiz Silani perform eye exams, as well as custom contact lenses fittings, sports vision testing, and glaucoma treatments.
One of the eye-care professionals behind Beverly Hills Institute of Optometry, Dr. Kambiz Silani, strives to help his patients improve their eyesight and understand their eye-care needs.

The practice also houses a spread of technologically advanced equipment to deliver exact prescriptions and draft computerized diagnostics of each patient's vision.

Modo Optometry founders and eye experts Drs. Shahrokh Dayyani and Terry T. Khraishi diagnose ocular impairments with comprehensive exams and restore eagle-eyed vision with glasses, contact lenses, or the cornea-polishing beams of LASIK surgery. After inspecting peepers for signs of infection or disease, the doctors dole out fresh prescriptions to fill stylish frames from Cartier, Prada, Tom Ford, and other designer brands. A cache of more than 1,000 contact lenses spans soft, rigid, and specialty styles that decorate eyes in a variety of colors and damask patterns.
