Hands down the best Optometrist I have ever been to in my life. I have awful vision and have had mixed experiences at best with other Optometrists who barely listen or pay attention to my needs. Dr. Do was incredibly thorough, honest, and respectful. After seeing him, I have the best fit of contacts than ever before. THANK YOU!

Dr. Do is simply the best. I have been seeing him for almost 20 years. I’ve sent my friends and family to see him as well. He is personable, friendly, and really cares about his patients. Recently I noticed a change in my eyesight, and he saw me right away. It turned out one my retinas was torn. When my PCP lagged and didn’t get me the approval I needed, Dr. Do stepped in. He connected me with another doctor that saw to my care. He stayed in touch with me checking to make sure I got the care I needed, even texting me before he went on a family vacation to make sure I was OK. I literally owe being able to see out of my right eye to him. If you want a good doctor, you have found him.

Dr. Yu is by far one the best in the area. I love how he’ll explain every little detail and is fun to be with. Thank you for the elite and genuine experience. Also, kudos to the staff that supports him. They are nice and very knowledgeable. I recommend for both young kids and adults. I been coming here for 7 years now. Thank you again.

I've been seeing Dr. Alexander since I was a kid and my father has been going to her ever since. She is an excellent direct, professional, very detailed doctor, and I am very glad, and grateful that I have been going to her since for the last 27 years and will continue. Thank you Torrance Optometry! THE BEST OPTOMETRIST IN TORRANCE IS HERE!

I came in for a regular checkup. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr Do was super nice and informative, gave great advice for maintaining eye health, no sense of being in a hurry, and no pressure to purchase unnecessary eyewear. Sitting on the fence about getting your checkup? Come see the folks at Torrance Optometey.

Best optometrist ever! Nice staff and clean office, came here in a panic for a swollen eye and was able to be seen and treated the same day, So then I also came back a week later to get a new prescription and Dr. Do really took his time with giving me the right prescription and was able to answer every question I had about my swollen eye and new prescription. I don’t typically write reviews but I had to because the service and experience was so amazing. I 100% recommend Torrance Optometry they won’t disappoint!!!

Big fan. Was quick and efficient. Dr. Yu was so likable and super frank. Did not try to push glasses on me but was honest they might help with my night driving if I decided I wanted them. After hearing I was concerned about price, he made sure his assistants only pulled frames that were covered by my insurance. And he gave me my prescription in case I wanted to go somewhere else. What a guy! His assistant, Manu, was such a gem. Walked around and gave me her opinion on glasses. So happy I came here for my eye needs!

FINDING IT- it's upstairs, like above Madre in a little plaza. Can be a little confusing to find. Look for the 200s sign on a stairwell next to Madre.

I have been with Dr. Do for about 4 years now and even followed him to this office. He’s great, funny and actually talks to you!

The staff here is also great with helping you choose a frame and giving you more info on it like other colors or similar styles. I always bring in my older frames for adjustments and they happily fix them for me.

Husband and I took our two to Dr. Debra. They did a good job…one of the friendliest staffs I’ve seen…most of all as a new client first impression matters a lot, so I must mention the operator / assistant Ms. Charlotte did the best job. Over the phone she gave a great welcome,attended to my problems immediately , didn’t waste my time & make me tired like most of the other offices.thank you Charlotte.all the other assistants & the doctor were knowledgeable and did a good job too.Thanks everybody !!!

I found Dr. Alexander when I first moved to the area and have followed her from two other optometrist offices to the beautiful one they occupy now. The staff is highly knowledgeable and friendly and I would not want to trust my sight to any other group. Dr. Alexander recommended and took me through LASIK many years ago and it was a great experience. My entire family are all her patients and are grateful for all she does! She is great with kids and now that mine are older, they still enjoy talking with her. I know of no better place to get this type of care! They are the absolute BEST!!!

Dr. Alexander rocks! I’ve been going to her for eleven years. She always remembers what we talked about at our last appointment and says hello when we see each other around town. She and the staff are very very friendly and will answer ANY and all questions you have regarding payment and insurance.

Her assistants are good at choosing frames for your face AND your budget. Dr. Alexander even comes out to give you the yea or nay on how the frames look on you.

Going to Torrance Optometry is like coming home!

Dr. Alexander is super friendly and relates to her patients really well. The staff are very kind and thorough, making sure that your insurance is taken care of before you arrive at the office. They are efficient and I love that they use email to communicate appointment confirmation, send paperwork, etc. It makes life so much easier!

My father and I have been going to see Dr. Do for years. His service and care is above and beyond the average optometrist. I have recently moved over 1.5 hours away and will continue to see Dr. Do. He consistently takes time to see me around my busy schedule and I always leave feeling confident I received the utmost service and specialized attention. Dr. Do rocks!
