If your eyes seem a little fuzzy on the details, it may be time for a visit to the optometrist. PS Optometry has been family owned and operated in Long Beach for over 20 years. Their team consists of an optometrist, optician and a team member with over 20 years of experience in fashion. This team ensures that even some of the most complicated cases can be resolved, as they pride themselves on being able to do what the competition sometimes can’t. Their lab and boutique are both on site, making most visits a one-stop shop. As a provider of Lasik surgery, they also offer Ortho-K lenses, which provide similar results with no surgery required.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Unlike other optical shops, we bring the optical shop to you, bringing you hundreds of stylish eyeglass frames for every budget. We [then] bring the eyeglasses back to you with the new lenses.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites? With so many eyeglass models, [I have] no favorites. My favorite thing is the process of narrowing down the many models of eyeglasses and finding just the right ones?with the right fit, color, and style?that work for each individual.
What do you love most about your job? Being super experienced in the eyewear field and an eyeglasses expert, I love sharing my knowledge with my customers and guiding them to the right eyewear.

At Eyestyles For Lifestyles, skilled optometrists calibrate prescriptions for lenses that are ground in onsite express labs.

They also guard against the glare of the sun with prescription sunglasses, and clients can order contact lenses from brands including Bausch & Lomb.
