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.
Bikram Yoga Laguna Beach's instructors, certified by the technique's creator, Bikram Choudhury, sculpt lean frames with strengthening postures performed in elevated temperatures, earning the attention of OC Lifestyle. They lead patrons of all skill levels through 90-minute Bikram yoga classes, bathing bodies in hot air, which helps to loosen limbs for deeper stretching and coaxes out beads of sweat to flush out toxins and internal snowmen. The 26 postures pair up with two breathing techniques to awaken slumbering organs and keep veins coursing with oxygen-rich blood as students bolster balance, strength, and flexibility. The wall-to-wall mirrors reflect the hard-working bodies, which are bathed in natural light flooding in through the white-walled studio's windows. After class, students may opt to capitalize on the studio's close proximity to the beach and cool off in the ocean one block away.
Private instruction pairs yogis with custom personal-training sessions to ensure guests practice proper technique, and private classes for groups bond coworkers, athletes, or groups of friends through focused movements.
Beneath the surface of the serene Pacific Ocean, a reef wall bustles with a vibrant mix of coral, fish, and crustaceans. Though known for its beauty, the underwater landscape also shelters the shoreline from choppy waves. In these tranquil waters, the instructors at Laguna Beach Paddle Boarding share their standup paddleboarding expertise with students of all skill levels. The ideal water conditions are augmented by wide, stable Padillac paddleboards. The staff hands these out during lessons and tours of Laguna Beach's Treasure Island Coves, named as such to distract visitors from where the treasure is actually hidden: Dennis Rodman's basement.
Laguna Beach Paddle Boarding also hosts an annual Paddle Party and frequent Paddle Girl Parties to raise awareness for the nonprofit organization Hailey's House, which helps guide teenage girls to make positive life choices.
