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.
Dr. Shervin Alborzian helms the Eye Center of La Jolla, where laser-powered iLASIK surgery updates the original LASIK procedure to sharpen vision for 99% of patients. A pre-operation consultation ensures a patient’s candidacy for the procedure, with the typical iLASIK candidate donning glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, or seeing friends as hamburgers during periods of intense hunger. Dr. Alborzian then performs the surgery using only lasers, which boosts procedural safety. Boasting a 3-D mapping system, the now-bladeless surgery customizes itself to the layout and secret passageways ensconced in each pair of eyes. Afterwards, as research charts, 99% of patients achieve their intended level of correction. This Groupon also includes post-op visits one day, one week, six weeks, and six months after the surgery, and, if patients own a time machine, six hours before.
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.
Carlsbad Eye Care's board-certified ophthalmologist Michael Tracy cares for eyes with the latest technology and a wealth of advanced training. After attending medical school at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, Dr. Tracy went on to perform his residency in ophthalmology at the Scheie Eye Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. He then completed a fellowship in corneal and refractive surgery at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami, which has been ranked as the top eye hospital in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
Dr. Tracy has performed thousands of eye procedures, including LASIK, custom surface ablation (PRK), and cataract surgery. He employs state-of-the-art equipment during LASIK surgeries, eschewing a handheld blade or Keebler elf’s samurai sword in favor of the advanced IntraLase femtosecond laser.
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. Daniel Hiser earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College and spent years in private practice, during which he became worried about the sun damage plaguing so many of his patients. Along with a registered nurse and the clinic director, he decided to open a med spa that would nurture skin dealing with the effects of aging and overexposure to the sun. The trio’s brainchild, Timeless Age-Defying Laser Clinic, treats patients to medical services ranging from wrinkle-fighting Botox injections and smoothing laser hair removal to age-defying IPL photofacials and chemical peels.
The clinic also ventures into spa territory with gentler facial treatments, which employ green tea, antioxidants, and microdermabrasion to fight blemishes and restore a youthful glow to cheeks without installing light switches in them. Clients can continue nourishing their skin at home with skincare products from Obagi and Timeless Age-Defying Laser Clinic’s own label.
