Licensed optometrists and Bay Area natives Drs. Adrienne Lee, Pearl Yee, and Noelle Sung draw from a wealth of personal and professional experiences—from Dr. Lee’s exemplary violin performance with her chamber group to Dr. Yee’s six years as an officer in the Navy’s optometry corps—to restore the sight of patients. Throughout the high-end boutique, a bounty of stylish frames from Japan, the United States, and Europe grace the walls, tempting eyeballs with the retro-chic of Entourage of 7 eyewear or the futuristic floating lenses of ultralight Avantek titanium pieces. High-tech treatments, such as corneal-refractive therapy and LASIK eye surgery allow patients to eschew glasses and witness the glories of nature unfiltered and unblurred, from the stunning majesty of a cloud-crowned mountain vista to the upfront banality of a road sign.

Strolling into Burlingame Optical is more like the encountering the lobby of a five-star hotel than an eyewear shop. Yet, sure enough, frames by Chanel, Robert Marc, and Chrome Hearts—amid a sea of other designers—fill the shop’s elegant cherry cabinets just waiting to be tested. Eyewear specialists pace the marbled floor, guiding the nearsighted and farsighted to the perfect lenses, from single-vision to digital progressives. At an onsite lab, technicians perform finish grindings and fortify spectacles with anti-reflective coatings and miniature wiper blades.
