Voted Los Angeles Times Readers? Choice 'Best Doctor' in Southern California in 2011 and 2012, Market Optometrix's (formerly Global Eye & Laser) doctors combine years of experience and various specialties, such as ophthalmology, refractive eye surgery, and laser vision correction, to help patients overcome a variety of vision-inhibiting ailments. The doctors demonstrate their dedication to patient health through their thorough pretreatment examinations, which consider the overall health of patients by combing over medical records and checking for banana peels. When examinations conclude, the doctors administer treatments utilizing up-to-date techniques and equipment, along with knowledge made current through continuing education.
The staff at Beach Rehab Center—helmed by CEO and owner Polly McCormick, a certified drug and alcohol counselor—seeks to improve their clients' wellness and combat addiction through holistic, physical medicine. The team combines Eastern and Western medicines, offering clients multiple avenues toward better health. Polly specializes in neck and back rehab and pre- and post-natal massage, though the staff also provides traditionally relaxing massage styles. Their techniques range from the light strokes of effleurage to the more intense kneads of deep-tissue techniques, which can loosen the toughest of knots, even those formed while attempting to unzip your own skin suit.

At Eyestyles For Lifestyles, skilled optometrists calibrate prescriptions for lenses that are ground in onsite express labs. The eyewear technicians slip the quickly created lenses into frames from designers such as Gucci and Juicy Couture, turning out vision-enhancing creations that flatter faces better than a close-talking admirer. They also guard against the glare of the sun with prescription sunglasses, and clients can order contact lenses from brands including Bausch & Lomb.
When skimming Dr. Robert T. Lin’s credentials, the number 25,000 stands out. It represents how many successful refractive surgeries he has completed in his career. One can only assume that several of those tallies come from the time he spent developing Micro-LASIK, a form of laser eye surgery considered less invasive than traditional LASIK because it creates a thinner corneal flap and no longer requires eyes to answer personal questions such as “When is the last time you had direct contact with a contact?” Dr. Lin founded IQ Laser Vision in 1999 and has since added an equally as skilled staff of fellow eye doctors who specialize in refractive eye surgery procedures, cataracts, Ortho-K, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative eye care.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
