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
