" Ocean Park Optometry is the best there is. I have many issues with my eyes and Dr. Ito and her staff took care of the ones I knew about and also found some others that were causing strange visual happenings that I thought were not related to my eyes. I am grateful to have found them. ”
“Great place to get your eyes checked. My doctor was extremely knowledgeable! ”
“I had an acute episode of eye pain and they were able to accommodate me immediately. The staff and doctor were very professional, quickly diagnosed me correctly and gave me the proper advice and treatment, as confirmed by my optholmolgist the next day. Would highly recommend. The pharmacy next door was also very convientent. ”
“I came as a walk in with their booked schedule and they helped me right away. Everyone on staff was super nice and helpful and professional. I loved my experience, thank you!”
“I have been with Dr Sarah Ito and her team at Ocean Park Optometry since we arrived in the US 10 years ago. They are always professional, efficient, kind, courteous and patient (it took me a long time to get used to using contacts!). I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a great optometrist. ”
