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.
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.
Dr. Claudia Montana-Collins started her optometry career more than 25 years ago at the University of LaSalle in Colombia. After moving to the U.S., she earned her doctorate from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, became a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, and researched prosthetic contact lenses at Wesley Jessen. Now at her own practice, Foothill Ranch Eye Care, Dr. Montana-Collins regularly matches prescription lenses with designer frames by Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Ray-Ban, prescribes toric, multifocal, and gas-permeable contact lenses, and diagnoses ocular diseases ranging from cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration to spontaneous x-ray vision. Dr. Montana-Collins has extensive experience conducting dilated eye evaluations for diabetic patients, and receives patients with hard-to-fit prescriptions, including patients with advanced astigmatism, keratoconus, and presbyopia. Thanks to their fluency in both Spanish and English, she and her staff communicate clearly with a diverse clientele.
At Comfort Laser Clinics, experienced physician Samuel Sunshine, MD, and his staff of trained and licensed registered nurses oust unwanted follicles, tattoos, and inches with an array of treatments. The specialists wield powerful pulses of light to zap follicles for a fraction of a second, permanently stymieing their ability to sneak back onto bodies while disguised as fake mustaches. Permanent body art gradually fades under the exposure of the ConBio laser, while other laser treatments help to tighten sagging skin, hone in curves, and rid toenails of sprouting fungi or topiaries.
At OC Optical Company, an accomplished staff of opticians and technicians fits patients with glasses and contact lenses. An extensive inventory of designer frames for women, men, and kids alike help customers create stylish new looks with help from Lulu Guinness, Versace, Van Heusen, and Guess. The optical shop ensures new glasses fit perfectly by offering adjustments and screw replacements free of charge. In addition to helping clients look their best and see clearly, the staff at OC Optical Company gives back to the community, with free in-home optical services for seniors and glasses donations and vision checkups through local and state Lions Clubs.
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.
