When Dr. Barry Katzman opened West Coast Eye Care & Med Spa, he envisioned the space as a small practice that would help locals better enjoy the city’s famous sunsets and beaches. With his expertise—he’s participated in hundreds of studies for advanced treatments—the business quickly took on enough customers to sustain seven offices, a staff of a dozen doctors, and its own language, which outsiders describe as Latin spoken in pig Latin. After outfitting eyes with prescriptions and preventive care, staffers can help them navigate an optical boutique stocked with more than 10,000 designer frames by Dior, Bvlgari, and Tom Ford. Regular performances of more advanced surgeries, such as LASIK, cataract laser procedures, and eyelid lifts, made the staff intrigued about similar aesthetic procedures. As a result, they opened a med spa, where they tighten and brighten skin with injections, rejuvenating laser treatments, and even plastic surgery.
Dr. Neville Cohen knows eyes. For more than three decades, the optometrist and his courteous staff have played matchmaker to countless clients, pairing them with their ideal set of vision-correcting frames and lenses. From Fendi to Ray-Ban, the shelves at his two-eye oasis are packed with fashionable designer glasses and sunglasses. Dr. Cohen also employs LASIK surgery and corneal refractive therapy, which uses custom-fitted contact lenses to gently reshape corneas, to help eyes achieve the 20/20 vision needed to stare down bald eagles.
At Advanced Vision Care Optometry, Dr. Odish presides over a wide range of high-tech eye-assessing equipment. Digital retinal screening and computerized visual-acuity testing gives the doctor detailed views of ocular goings-on, allowing him to diagnose disease, prescribe lenses, or recommend a good pair of mustachioed disguise glasses.
If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than one million eye surgeries at 57 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
Dr. Barry R. Mozlin's team of optometrists and opticians tests sight with computer-assisted eye exams before outfitting adults and kids with a chic selection of optical frames. The practice also stocks prescription and nonprescription sunglass frames, contact lenses available for same-day delivery, and lenses with Transitions photochromic technology, which darken in sunlight or during staring contests with light bulbs. Along with eyewear needs, Dr. Mozlin performs preoperative and postoperative work for laser-surgery patients.
La Jolla Optique's friendly and informed team of eye specialists will start by deducing the current condition of your ocular apparatus with a comprehensive eye exam. Using the latest technology and his years of experience, Dr. Damian Ploof will determine how to sharpen your vision without sharpening it to the point where you can glimpse the chittering eldritch entities that exist just beyond the veil of our reality.
