A new location of the USC Eye Institute is now open near the University Park Campus, offering faculty, staff and their dependents, as well as USC students, a convenient location for their eye care and optical needs.

The office, at 3335 S. Figueroa St. (Unit E) is in the University Gateway building near the corner of Figueroa and Jefferson. It is the latest expansion of the Eye Institute, which features an office on the second floor of Healthcare Center 4, 1450 San Pablo St., on the Health Sciences Campus for all optometry and optical needs.

All USC faculty, students, staff and their dependents who have purchased vision insurance through USC are eligible for an annual eye exam at the USC Eye Institute, which has been ranked as a “Top 10 Best Hospital” for adult ophthalmology by U.S. News & World Report for the past 21 years.

“We are so excited to have convenient locations at both the UPC and HSC campuses now to serve the entire Trojan Family,” said Veronica Isozaki, assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

Keeping their eye on service

In addition to comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fittings, the site offers designer eyeglasses and sunglasses from many major brands. Board-certified and experienced opticians will be available to help patients with their selection, measurements and adjustment needs. All eye examinations are provided by residency trained optometrists.

“We are very focused on the quality of care we provide each and every patient,” said Lernik Torossian, assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology. “Our priority each day is to provide our patients with the exceptional care and personalized service that Keck Medicine is known for.”

Both locations are open for walk-in purchases of contact lenses or eyewear Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the UPC location offers free parking at the University Gateway building.
