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.
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. The all-purpose eye center also treats glaucoma and assesses intraocular health with retinal imaging.
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.
In addition to having more letters following her name than many university professors, Hollywood Vision Center – Optometry's Elise Brisco, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, has made her name evident on television shows including The Doctors. At the upscale center—marked by fountains and cherry-wood accents—Dr. Brisco and her staff cater to a wide range of Optometric needs. Dr. Brisco draws upon a post-doctorate fellowship in developmental optometry, was the Team Optometrist for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, and co-founded the Rehabilitative Vision Clinic at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center. She practices alongside Dr. Bita Shokouh, O.D. evaluating both children and adults for vision problems that could affect learning potential or athletic performance. They test for problems such as tracking, eye teaming, depth perception, strabismus, and amblyopia. Having prescribed contact lenses for kids as young as five years old, Dr. Brisco says it's important to make sure a child's visual skills are correct so that they can perform their best in school and sports.
