Shermin Lahijani, O.D.
I am very pleased to welcome you to my practice and my website. As a Doctor of Optometry, I am a primary health care professional who examines, diagnoses, treats and manages diseases and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures, as well as diagnosing related systemic conditions. I prescribe glasses, contact lenses, vision therapy, and certain medications. I have extensive experience in many areas of vision care, including primary care, pediatrics, vision therapy, contact lens, low vision, ocular disease, and LASIK pre and post-operative care. As a member of the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center team, I work among many fine medical professionals who are committed to helping me provide you the very best eye and health care possible.
Dr. Lahijani is “TPA” certified, which allows her to use an extended range of medications in her care of patients. She has worked with one of the largest laser centers in Southern California, and is extremely experienced in all aspects of laser vision correction evaluation and patient care.
When Dr. Lahijani is not at the office, she is busy being mom to three active young children. She enjoys shopping at local farmer’s markets and hiking in the Hollywood Hills. Among her sponsorships of local businesses and schools is Valley View Elementary School. She truly enjoys her profession and strives to treat each of her patients as she would a member of her immediately family.
Jennie Fan, O.D.
Greetings Friends and Colleagues,
I am Dr. Jennie Fan and I have been practicing alongside Dr. Shermin Lahijani for over 8 years. I am a native of Southern California, I received my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine and my Optometric degree at Marshall B. Ketchum University (formerly known as the Southern California College of Optometry).
I am dedicated to providing excellence in eye and vision care for each and every one of our patients. My passion includes helping the pediatric and underserved community. In addition to primary vision and eye health care, contact lens services, ocular disease treatment and refractive surgery comanagement,
I am also trained in specialty contacts such as RGPs, ortho keratology as well as medical cosmetic contact lenses.
I believe vision and eye health to be intertwined with overall health and wellness. In the course of the exam I will ask for a complete personal and family general health and eye health history. In addition, I will discuss the functional problems the patient may have, such as concerns with reading, functioning in the kitchen, glare problems, travel vision, the workplace, television viewing, school requirements, computer/work space issues and hobbies and interests.
Outside of work I love spending time with my family. My interests include architecture, nature hikes,
wines and I am a foodie!
Thank you for considering us for your eye care needs. I look forward to helping you!
Both of our doctors are certified in the pre and post-operative management of implantable contacts.
Giving back to our community is very important to both our doctors and staff. Our practice actively participates with Esperanza 4 U, a volunteer organization helping the homeless in Downtown Los Angeles by providing free meals, blankets and other resources.
