Welcome to Village Eyes Optometry and both our West Los Angeles Dry Eye Clinic and our Specialty Contact Lens Clinic. Our eye doctors want to give you a great eye exam! Please click on the video above for an introduction to Village Eyes.
Village Eyes Optometry is a vision care center located in Westwood Village, a suburb of West Los Angeles in the city of Los Angeles. We have been practicing family vision care since 1974. We have four doctors on staff at Village Eyes Optometry. In addition, we have a Dry Eye Clinic at our offices to help our patients with all of their dry eye issues from evaporative dry eye to tear deficiency issues. We also specialize in contact lenses and can take care of even the most difficult contact lens prescriptions for our patients.
The practice was founded by Dr. Jon D. Vogel in 1974. Dr. Vogel's son, Dr. Lorin E. Vogel, joined the practice several years ago. In addition, we have two excellent independent practitioners that practice from Village Eyes facilities: Dr. Bahareh Golbahar, and Dr. Annie Hu-Duval. Here are some of the services that we offer to our patients:
We have a full service optical boutique on the premises, and we feature the latest fashion eyewear, ophthalmic lenses, and special lens treatments to make the lenses scratch resistant and glare free. We carry a great selection of non-prescription fashion sunglasses and reading glasses. We also have our own in house laboratory which allows us to provide the highest quality eyeglasses fabrication in a timely manner.
In addition to our terrific optical department, at our Specialty Contact Lens Clinic we offer contact lens fitting for all types of contact lens products including soft, soft toric, disposable and non-disposable contact lenses, rigid gas permeable contact lenses, as well as lenses for special purposes and special conditions. including multifocal soft and gas permeable multifocal lenses. We fit custom lenses for post surgical complications and keratoconus. We carry the latest hybrid contact lenses as well as special large diameter scleral lenses for difficult to fit corneas. We also have colored lens options for those patients that want to enhance their eye color. Finally, we offer special contact lenses for corneal molding or "orthokeratology" that can actually improve nearsightedness to the point that a patient's vision is improved so much that no contacts or eyeglasses are needed during waking hours. We are very excited about new research that is showing that it may be possible to control or manage myopia through the usage of specially designed contact lenses. This is especially important for children that have a family history of myopia and are showing the development of myopia at an early age. There is also evidence that a special type of soft multifocal contact lens available at Village Eyes can be helpful in controlling myopia.
Further conditions that we treat at Village Eyes Optometry are: glaucoma, eye infections, scratched corneas, pink eye, blepharitis, and eye allergies. We offer urgency and emergency eye treatment for our patients. We also provide consultations to patients considering cosmetic eye surgery.
