Conveniently located in Monrovia close to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Center in nearby Arcadia, Children’s Optical offers one-stop shopping for patients needing prescription eye glasses, contact lenses, frame repairs, accessories and protective eyewear.

Children’s Optical provides customized lenses for children to ensure proper prescriptions and comfort. When very young children are prescribed glasses to correct a developmental condition, it is crucial that the lenses be properly aligned.

With a large selection of frames to choose from, Children’s Optical offers child-friendly frames that can be properly fitted to facial characteristics, nose bridge and temple length to provide the best comfort.

  • Children have smaller noses, which can lead to the glasses slipping down if they aren’t properly fitted.

  • Frames should be durable and be sized to fit the width of the face.

  • The temples (arms) of the frame should be the proper length and follow the contour of the ear. Frames can be fit with comfort cable tips to ensure a minimum of slipping or strap to secure the glasses.

  • Durable frames and polycarbonate lenses are recommended for protection against breakage and harmful UVA/UVB light rays from the sun.  



Street parking is available along South Myrtle Ave. or free parking structures on East Lemon Ave. and West Colorado Blvd.
