Getting the best correction for vision and eye comfort is more than buying a pair of prescription lenses and a frame to put on your face. We consider how you will use your eyeglasses. Do you use a computer all day? Do you require a different power for seeing far, the computer or to read? How does your vision affect your work and profession?

Lens materials, lens coatings and colors, glare protection, and protection against injury on the job and at home are just some of the considerations we make when recommending what is right for you.

Should you have a thin lens-what type, a progressive, a digital-free form lens, a safety or tinted lens, is polarization good? What do you really need? We can educate you and help you decide.

When we recommend a lens, we also consider past or potential future surgeries, vision problems from childhood, what your work environment demands, and even how strong your visual system is and what demands you put on the system every day.

Children and seniors both require specific considerations which must also be made when eyewear is designed and ordered.
And, of course, you must look and feel great!

Feel free to discuss your particular needs and likes when choosing a set of frame and lenses from us.


Weho Optical

Through decades of eye care experience, we have compiled a list of doctors to recommend for specialty health care, ocular health care, refractive surgery like Lasik, PRK and lens-exchange surgery.

We also refer for surgery to correct ocular muscle imbalance, droopy eyelids, pinguecula and pterygiums, and surgical improvement of keratoconus, and for the repair of retinal damage.

These fine specialists have proven their skill time and time again with excellent results to my patients. We are able to participate in your pre- and post -urgical needs with our referring doctors.

Feel free to discuss any concerns with us and we will make the appropriate referral.


We are pleased to offer a wide range of quality eyewear for our clients. We are sensitive to those looking for quality glasses on a modest budget (as well as the finest money can buy).

You may be pleasantly surprised by the spectrum of frames we carry, and should certainly be able to find something that fits well, feels great and looks fantastic! We carry a full line of frames by the following designers and eyewear manufacturers.

Working with professionally trained opticians is your best solution for getting proper fit and function from your eyeglasses. We are proud to have trained opticians with more than 40 years of combined experience on staff in the optical department of our office.

Eyeglass sales people in many stores are not necessarily career opticians, and you would be wise to ask any sales person about their background before you place anything as precious as your vision in their hands.

Barbara and George are dedicated to getting your eyeglasses made with precision, proper fit, and great comfort and looks. They greet each new patient with dedication and experience to achieve the best set of glasses that can be made for you.

George will spend the time necessary to guide you through the process of ordering a proper frame for your prescription, comfort and working needs. He will follow the manufacture process and finalize the fit on the day you come to pick up your glasses.

Barbara is a specialist in the needs of any office worker and computer user. She has a particular flair for assisting in the ordering and proper fit of glasses used every day at the office. As a golfer, she also knows the needs of any player who must wear visual correction, which helps get the ball in the hole!
