Led by experienced optometrist Dr. Stanton Kim—who has spent more than 25 years in practice—the eye-care specialists at Eye Contact Optometry cater to patients of all ages. In doing so, they provide services such as vision therapy for better learning and orthokeratology treatments that serve as a noninvasive alternative to Lasik surgery. Before departing, their patients can restock supplies of contact lenses as well as prescription glasses and sunglasses.
Dr. Sy Rosenblum, his son, Dr. David, Dr. Julie Bhindi, and Dr. Sheryl A. Bruce form a team of optometrists who advise on ocular wellness and style alongside a talented staff. Vision exams determine prescriptions, general health, and lashes' spelling abilities. Going above and beyond standard checkups, the clinic also provides pediatric eye care, as well as disease management and trauma care.
After clients' eyes have been assessed, they may accessorize with contacts or a new pair of glasses complete with lenses crafted in the on-site lab. Perched inside elegant, glossy display cases, designer frames by Ray-Ban, Oliver Peoples, and Dolce & Gabbana reflect the offices' crisp, modern lighting and dark wood accents. Specialty eyewear offers frames and lenses for customers involved with athletics, hobbies, and occupations that place specific demands on peepers, such as working with computers or engaging in varsity-level staring contests.
Outside of promoting eye health, the practice champions local involvement through its commitment to community service. It has served as a headquarters for Rachel's Hug-a-Bears, a group founded by Dr. David's daughter that sends teddy bears and notes to children in hospitals. Through other organizations, the doctors have also donated their services, free of charge, to patients in need.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
Justin Michaels, OD, and Josephine Vu, OD, of Eye Care For You Optometry and South County Eye Care Optometric Group measure and safeguard ocular health with top-shelf optometric technology and metrics and a vast array of stylish frames. Glasses and sunglasses from labels such as Dior, Calvin Klein, and Prada fashionably focus light toward the retina, and prescription sunglasses block unwanted glares from creeping paparazzi.
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.
