      Welcome to Clarity Advanced Optometry!  We have three offices conveniently located inside LensCrafters stores in Arcadia and Pasadena.  Our team of experienced doctors of optometry pride themselves in their personalized eye care.  Whether you are concerned about your family history of glaucoma or need an annual diabetic eye exam, we are always here for you 7 days a week!

     Our optometrists specialize in myopia management (personalized treatments prescribed to slow down the progression of nearsightedness in school aged children). They are also trained in the diagnosis and management of cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other eye diseases.

     To elevate our patients' experience, we have invested in the highest technology equipment, including the Daytona Optomap--an instrument that takes a wild-field scan of the retina without having to dilate our patients' eyes.


    Our Clarifye digital eye exam, which is powered by innovators in precision optics, provides tools for our doctors to pinpoint a more accurate and personalized prescription. It is available exclusively at offices located inside LensCrafters.

     We also have a lab on site - this means that most glasses, including sunglasses and progressive lenses, can be picked up in one hour!

    We welcome patients locally from the San Gabriel and from around the globe. Our doctors are fluent in English and Chinese, and they also conduct exams in Spanish. We accept most vision and medical insurance plans and offer discounts for AAA and AARP members.

     To schedule an eye exam for you and your family, click on the "Schedule an Eye Exam" on the top right corner of this page, or call us at 626-445-2717 (Arcadia-Santa Anita) and 626-463-1314 (Pasadena-Paseo). Same day appointments and walk-ins are always welcome during office hours.


About Us


Comprehensive Eye Exams


Just like an annual physical, a comprehensive eye exam is recommended once a year. We test your visual acuity, blood pressure, color vision, depth perception, eye pressures, visual fields, glasses prescription, eye alignment, and the overall physical health of your eyes. Most vision insurances cover routine eye exams once a year.

Myopia Control

Our doctors prescribe personalized treatment to slow down the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. The different methods we use include: soft contacts, ortho-ketatology, and atropine eye drops.

Besides keeping the prescription low, myopia control also helps reduce the risk of vision-threatening complications later in life, including glaucoma, cataractsretinal detachment and even blindness.

Contact Lens Fitting

After a comprehensive eye exam, the doctor will discuss with you contact lens recommendations based on your prescription, eye health, and lifestyle. If this is your first time wearing contact lenses, we will schedule a contact lens care and insertion/removal training with our experienced associates.

Medical Eye Exams

Our medical eye exams include the treatment and management of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and dry eyes. Our optometrists are trained and certified to the highest scope of practice. We accept common medical insurances such as: Medicare, Aetna, Cigna, Blue Shield of CA, and Oscar.

Emergency Eye Care

Our doctors provide same day appointments for eye infections, eye injuries, and other urgent eye issues seven days a week. However, if your eye injury or emergency is after hours, please seek help at your nearest hospital emergency room or urgent care.

LASIK Consultation

We understand that LASIK is a life-changing procedure that can draw a lot of questions and anxiety. The consultation consists of a comprehensive eye exam to check your current prescription and eye health. If you are a good candidate, we will refer you to our trusted and experienced refractive surgeon.

Our Optometrists


I was receiving an eye exam. All staffs were very professional and helpful. My Optometrist, Dr. Kristen Murakami, was an angel! Dr. Murakami was patient, knowledgeable, and skillful. I appreciate her personality and professional experience. The charge for service and lens was super reasonable. It's located in the busy Santa Anita Mall that's safe and convenient.

I was very impressed by Dr. Lillian Nghe! She was warm, welcoming, friendly, informative and i could feel she cared. Most appts, Doc wants to hurry and get you out the door for the next one. She was not like that. She's earned a new patient for life!



Dr. Tina Chiou has been my optometrist for a few yrs and she is absolutely fabulous. She got me fitted with contacts, prior to her, I could not utilize contacts because nobody ever took the time to train me how to put them on corrrectly. Dr Chiou took the time and patience to help me out. Thank you
