Book Appointment

Our Mission Statement

At Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group, we provide and promote exceptional primary eye care, contact lens, and preventive healthcare services. We inspire trust and confidence through innovative and exemplary services—always with a personal, caring attitude.

Our History

Our office was established in 1921 in the Civic Center area of Downtown Los Angeles, commonly known as Little Tokyo. The practice was established by Dr. Arthur Kenzo Sugino, the first Japanese optometrist in the United States.

Dr. Kenzo Sugino was succeeded by his son, Dr. Arthur Tatsu Sugino, who passed away in a single-engine private plane along with his wife, Ruth, and their 4 children on June 26, 1966. At the request of his surviving family, the practice was continued by Dr. Rodger T. Kame. It was later named The Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group.

Dr. Kame continued the practice for 34 more years until his passing in 2000 from renal cancer. His legacy lives on in his son, Dr. Gregory Y. Kame, who continues the tradition of excellence in eye care started in downtown Los Angeles over 100 years ago.

Why Us?

  1. Our practice was nationally recognized as one of the 10 best contact lens practices in the country. We’re known for our cutting-edge work in the contact lens field.
  2. We’re committed to advancements and innovation within the eye care industry. The Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group team takes part in clinical studies and investigations on an ongoing basis.
  3. We have the equipment and experience necessary to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. Our modern yet comfortable office is a welcoming environment where you’ll be treated with warmth and care.
