At EyeCon Optometry, Dr. Laura Ha serves the community in which she grew up and where her passion for eye care began. While volunteering as an undergraduate at the mobile eye clinic at UCLA's Jules Stein Eye Institute, Dr. Ha realized how valuable and life-changing proper eyewear can be for children. She felt compelled to pursue optometry as a career, and she now focuses on helping people with vision therapy, specializing in the treatment of conditions such as strabismus (eye turn), amblyopia (lazy eye), and polyoculus (extra eyes).
Dr. Ha designed her office herself, outfitting it with cheerful yellow chairs, rich, wooden display cases, and delicate orchids that, when viewed without glasses, resemble a portrait of the Hamburger Helper hand's immediate family.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
When he's not doing missionary ophthalmic work in Mexico or providing eye care for victims of domestic abuse, Dr. Armin Vishteh partakes in continuing medical-education courses to stay up to date with industry techniques and help bestow patients with the best care possible. The American Board of Ophthalmology–certified medical director of Rancho Laser Vision Center has corrected nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in more than 20,000 eyes with laser-based LASIK and PRK procedures. Before bolstering patients’ blinkers, Rancho Laser Vision Center offers a complimentary consultation, during which Dr. Vishteh discusses their vision health and how it may affect their eligibility for laser vision correction or x-ray-vision installation.
