The Three Faces of
Clear An Optometric Destination
Dr. Lok Chan is serious about eye care. After graduating from UC Berkeley’s School of Optometry with honors, she continued her training at institutions throughout California and in Beijing. Dr. Chan draws on that expertise in her own practice, determining patients’ prescriptions and screening their eyes for any potential diseases or injuries.

Once they know their prescriptions, clients can browse a selection of frames from labels such as Chanel, Fendi, and Bulgari. And the shopping experience aims to be just as luxurious as the products themselves. Cisitors can relax on leather seating as they try on glasses, while a separate children’s area entertains youngsters with toys and movies on a flat-screen TV.
“Frozen yogurt” isn’t synonymous with “optometry,” but Clear wants to change that. To that end, it houses the Refresh Bar, a dessert shop scooping up frozen yogurt, ice cream, and gelato, topped with everything from fresh fruit to flavored mochi. Hand-poured Blue Bottle coffee is also available for a midday pick-me-up. Treats at the Refresh Bar are complimentary for the clinic’s patients, though the general public is welcome to pay to partake as well.
