Optician and eyewear designer Karina Leigh draws from her years of experience running upscale boutiques to outfit a clientele of celebrities such as Kanye West, LL Cool J, and J. Lo with top-shelf eyewear from both well-known and up-and-coming artisans. Like an elegant sword-cane or a cast bedazzled in tiny diamonds, the upscale assortment of eyewear turns a necessary tool into a must-have fashion accessory, as evidenced by the patronage of people who are frequently photographed. The Amir Taj–designed studio blends aristocratic grace with notes of whimsy, surrounding visitors with a pristine interior of white lacquered wood, Louis XV furniture, chandeliers made with crystals by Swarovski, and light globes that model some of the store's most popular frames. A huge vintage collection adorns noses with the haute fashion of bygone eras, and pieces from designers such as Gucci, Tom Ford, Prada, and Benjamin Eyewear deck out faces with the modish looks of the near future.
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.
Hossein Silani began a legacy when he opened his first eye-care facility in Beverly Hills more than 30 years ago. Today, he operates multiple stores with his sons, Kambiz and Kamran, including Super Vision Optical, a Beverly Hills eyewear staple for more than 60 years. Rows of modern frames from Gucci, Armani, Carrera, and SUPER line the shop’s shelves and contrast with vintage aviators from Ray-Ban, which invite patrons to switch their cell phones to flight mode before they try on a pair. To ensure that frames fit both faces and prescriptions, optometrists Dr. Bita Shokouh and Dr. Kambiz Silani perform eye exams, as well as custom contact lenses fittings, sports vision testing, and glaucoma treatments.
One of the eye-care professionals behind Beverly Hills Institute of Optometry, Dr. Kambiz Silani, strives to help his patients improve their eyesight and understand their eye-care needs. His comprehensive eye exams serve as preventative measures, illuminating potential vision problems, such as cataracts or macular degeneration. The practice also houses a spread of technologically advanced equipment to deliver exact prescriptions and draft computerized diagnostics of each patient's vision.
Stroll through A.B. See Optical and you'll pass row upon row of designer glasses frames. The store even carries a sizable selection of sports eyewear, from goggles to protect your eyes during games to sunglasses to wear backwards so it seems like you can ski backwards.
Owner of Good Eye Optometry, Dr. Farah Gozini also doubles as the office's optometrist, sizing up patients' prescriptions and conducting exams to ensure eyes are in good health. Dr. Gozini sees every one of the patients who walks through her door, including kids, adults, and near-sighted pet turtles. With new or updated prescriptions in-hand, customers can peruse the shop's selection of fashionable frames from designers such as Burberry, Jimmy Choo, and Tom Ford.
