Dawn to Dusk with Mei Fleming, O.D.

Mei Fleming, O.D.

As the founder of Luminance Vision Optometry (LVO) in Lafayette, CA, as well as the creator of the Eye Like Fashion blog, Mei Fleming, O.D., believes that eye care should be a unique, memorable, and style-centric experience.

“At an early age, I enjoyed performing ‘makeovers’ on my friends,” says Dr. Fleming. “Optometry naturally falls in line with that passion—combining health care and fashion.” Here, Dr. Fleming shares her dawn-to-dusk in the Bay Area. —KERRI ANN RAIMO
