Dr. Scott Lam administers eye exams with a focus on patient education, carefully explaining the different steps for determining a prescription and finding symptoms of damage or disease. After taking a peek at their peepers, he leads guests to the office's showroom, where he and his staff help them pick stylish frames. Instead of concentrating solely on fit, they discuss the client's tastes and lifestyle, hunting down the best match from popular brands and daring boutiques. From classic Coach and Ray-Ban frames to vintage-style specs from Mandalay in Japan, their inventory spans the fashion spectrum.
Dr. Lam also applies his expertise to services that don't focus solely on spectacles. He performs contact-lens fittings, LASIK consultations, and exams for children. Whether searching for signs of glaucoma or helping clients finally read the corny jokes inscribed on the head of every sewing pin, he prioritizes an inviting, customized style of care. Visitors are even allowed to choose from one of five languages: English, Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese, and Spanish.
Focus Vision Optometric Center's optometrists Jane H. Liang and Cheryl Yu help their patients see the world with newfound clarity. Using computer-assisted equipment, they find the precise prescriptions for glasses and contacts. They can also treat chronic eye conditions such as glaucoma and uncontrollable laser vision. Accommodating as many patients as possible, Focus Vision Optometric Center's staffers speak Cantonese, English, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish.
In 1968, Dr. Kunal Shah and Dr. Robert Frohn opened an optometry business fresh out of medical school. More than 40 years later, their treatments have advanced and their office has grown, but their mission hasn't changed. To this day, they still put each patient’s eye care first, using their combined 60 years of experience to customize treatments for each patient. Their services range from comprehensive examinations to remedies for astigmatism, dry-eye syndrome, and macular degeneration, all provided by staff who speak both English and Spanish. The doctors even treat specialized cases, helping patients in need of low-vision and pediatric optometry. They also venture into complex treatments, such as LASIK and cataract surgery, with the use of advanced technology. After exams or procedures, patients in need of glasses can pick out a new pair of frames in an onsite eyewear boutique featuring brands such as Gucci, Ray Ban, Coach, and more, and fill their new prescriptions thanks to the office’s lens-sculpting services.
Whether patients speak English or Spanish, there's little chance they'll have trouble communicating at Salud Digna. That's because Dr. Sergio Ortiz, the 20-year optometry veteran who runs the office, works with an entirely bilingual staff. During comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Ortiz checks vision and screens for diseases from cataracts to diabetes. Staffers then help patients select from a supply of frames that includes styles from Ray-Ban, DKNY, and Anne Klein.
Exams aside, the team does good for more than just the eyes. Licensed as a community clinic by the state of California, Salud provides high-quality optometry on a flexible scale, allowing them to help as many people as possible and ensuring that every customer who chooses them is helping to get others affordable eye care.
Helmed by managing optometrist Dr. Terry Khraishi O.D., the staff at CCV Optica helps to protect patients' eyesight through routine examinations and thorough screenings, with a special focus on serving the Hispanic community. Bilingual specialists inspect eyeballs for signs of glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetes, or fit faces to frames from brands such as Bebe, Ray-Ban, Vera Wang, and Timex.
When skimming Dr. Robert T. Lin’s credentials, the number 25,000 stands out. It represents how many successful refractive surgeries he has completed in his career. One can only assume that several of those tallies come from the time he spent developing Micro-LASIK, a form of laser eye surgery considered less invasive than traditional LASIK because it creates a thinner corneal flap and no longer requires eyes to answer personal questions such as “When is the last time you had direct contact with a contact?” Dr. Lin founded IQ Laser Vision in 1999 and has since added an equally as skilled staff of fellow eye doctors who specialize in refractive eye surgery procedures, cataracts, Ortho-K, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative eye care.
