Steven Lai O.D.

Founder of Bright Eye Care Optometry

Experience: Dr. Lai's knowledge of eyes started at a very young age and was influenced by his father, who was an optician for 60 years. Growing up in an optical shop not only inspired him to become a high school physics teacher but also taught him well about assisting and providing services for people. Combining academic strength of optical skills, eye diseases and hands-on experience from his father, Dr. Lai caters to his patients with utmost devotion and expertise. Serving his patients in Southern California for more than 30 years, he is voted by them as the most caring and friendly optometrist. Orthokeratology is one of his well-known specialties, along with various other aspects of optometry.

Education:  Dr. Lai graduated from New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts with his Doctorate degree.
