Our optometrist near UCLA strives to keep you seeing crisp and clear – with comfortable and healthy vision – for as long as possible. We equip our office with the latest digital optics and diagnostic tools, so you benefit from optimum precision and efficient service. If you suffer from the irritating symptoms of dry eye syndrome, we will treat it to bring you relief. Nowadays, almost everyone (students in particular!) spends hours a day gazing at a digital device, such as a computer or smartphone. As a result, many people suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), which causes headaches, eyestrain, and a host of painful symptoms. If you have CVS, we can help restore your comfortable vision at our eye care clinic near UCLA.
UCLA campus is the most prominent feature of Westwood, yet we’d like to take a look at some attractions beyond the classrooms!
Explore Westwood Village
This charming neighborhood is the perfect place to window shop, purchase boutique items, and simply enjoy a slower pace outside the bustling lives of LA. Established in 1928, this retail village of stores, restaurants for true foodies, art galleries, and entertainment venues is a historical landmark. Watch out for Fox Village Theater, open and running since 1931, with its 170-foot tall tower and neon signage. Another one-of-a-kind place to visit in Westwood Village is the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary, where Hollywood reigns forever with the graves of icons such as Natalie Wood, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Roy Orbison and Truman Capote.
Art aficionados love Westwood’s Hammer Museum, where engaging exhibits of modern art, design and photography are accompanied by a fantastic events calendar. Of course, their free admission policy is another powerful attraction. To expand your familiarity with contemporary artwork, stop by the Fowler Museum too, a hidden treasure on UCLA campus. Artifacts on display show diverse creative trends from around the world. If you appreciate outdoor installations, we encourage a self-guided tour of the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden, with five acres of sculptures on the UCLA grounds.
Entertainment & Eating
Sit back and enjoy the sounds and lights of a performance at Royce Hall, the elegant 1,800 seat theater at UCLA, in Westwood. This hall has a fascinating legacy, with famed stars such as Duke Ellington, Jimmy Dorsey’s Band, and George Gershwin having played here. Yet when the seats are sold out, don’t despair – the Geffen Playhouse is another glitzy home for catching big-name talent.
When you and your family need a snack to stay energized, Diddy Riese should be high on your list of places to go. This scoop shop is a legacy in Westwood, with huge ice cream sandwiches in a rainbow of flavors. If it’s meal time and you need more than a frozen confection to fill your family up, the handcrafted pizza at 800 degrees is a great choice, or stop by Frida for authentic Mexican cuisine. What before or after an evening show? We love Palomino for Italian fare, and Napa Valley Grille for exquisite dishes with a taste of the rustic side of Westwood and Los Angeles.
We look forward to seeing you at our Westwood eye care center, serving UCLA and all surrounding neighborhoods!
