About Us

Dr. Lynette Cacciotti

Dr. Lynette Cacciotti is a graduate of the New England College of Optometry, Dr. Cacciotti or “Dr. C,” as her patients affectionately call her – is a state licensed optometrist in both California and New York. The founder of Dr. C Optometry, she has treated a wide variety of vision problems that make her one of the top optometrists in the nation.

After ten years in a clinical setting, Dr. C opened a family–owned Practice with the heart and warmth of a small town doctor to the hub of Los Angeles’ westside. Dr. C is the first choice for vision care for many of the westside’s medical professionals and their families. Her patients include some of the most prominent physicians in Los Angeles.

Because of her expertise, fellow doctors refer the most difficult cases to her for review and consultation. She is known as “the doctor’s doctor” in the medical community. Vision care at Dr. C Optometry is a marriage of both medicine and fashion. Dr. C is not only responsible for ensuring proper eye-care to patients, but also providing fashionable eye wear and contact lenses that reflect the image and lifestyle of the wearer.

The Vistakon division of Johnson and Johnson asked Dr. C to spearhead an organization of women optometrists. Today, she is a founding board member of Women in Optometry, which is an international organization of female doctors. She is also a member of the American Optometric Association (AOA).

Dr Nakada

Dr. Chau Tri Nakada has been a welcome addition to Dr C. Optometry since June 2005. She brings a passion and a strong depth of knowledge to improve the eye care and health of adults, children and infants.

After graduating with a B.S. in Neuroscience from UCLA, Dr. Nakada earned her Doctorate in optometry from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1999. In her graduate clinical training, she has developed an expertise in vision therapy, low vision and contact lenses.

Dr. Nakada has a special interest in the development of the visual system and its effect on early childhood learning and school performance. She understands the importance of the eyes working together, clearly and efficiently, to enable children to put their effort into learning, not into seeing. By the use of vision therapy, Dr. Nakada helps children and adults improve their ability to see clearly and easily.

With extensive training in corneal refractive therapy, Dr. Nakada also uses specialized contact lenses to reshape the eye and improve your vision. She has had great success with this therapy.

Violet is the director of the optical department. She maintains a full inventory of over 1000 frames, something for everyone. She has the ability to know what will work best for your face shape, skin tones, prescription, personality and lifestyle. Never rushing you to make a decision, Violet wants you to be as excited as she is about your choice of glasses.

In our office we believe education is very important. At any given time, we may have interns learning under our doctors and staff. Some patients have allowed the interns to observe the examination, and we thank them. A large number of these students are now successful optometrists and we are delighted to have played a part in their growth.
