My visit to Dr. James Kurata was one of the most informative, comfortable, insightful, and enjoyable experiences I've had in my life. His skill set places him in rare air where only a chosen few sit.

I've been going to Dr. Kurata for many years, and only recently to Dr. Chin. They are first class doctors and first class people. A visit to their office is always productive and pleasurable. I attribute my excellent eyesight at an advanced age (77) in large degree to the fine care Dr. Kurata has given me for over twenty years.

Dr Kurata was extremely thorough and engaging in his assessment of my eyesight. The staff were efficient, and everyone was using safe COVID practices in a very professional manner.

Visiting Kurata Eyecare is always a pleasant experience, the staff is always friendly and helpful, and Dr. Chin is the best as usual. The new procedures to promote safety and social distancing don't feel too intrusive, and my appointment didn't last much longer than usual, if at all.

The exam process is very thorough and complete and the price ranges of the lenses and frames fits my budget with many reasonably priced frames.

Every person there at Kurata is friendly and genuine. The doctor is patient, unhurried and caring. Definitely an A-1 operation.

Our visit with Dr. Chin was a great experience. We took our 8 year old child for her first optometrist visit and Dr. Chin immediately made our child feel comfortable and proceeded to explain everything she was doing so that our child understood that none of the procedures would be painful or scary. I already have Dr. Chin as my optometrist and would recommend both her and Dr. Kurata to anyone. Plus, the office staff is friendly and efficient, so they do add to a very good visit.

Awesome staff. I’ve been coming here for many years. Though I no longer live/work Dowtown, I’ll still come in for my vision and contacts exams.

The waiting room is always clean, comfortable, and well kept. Lots of frames on display. The staff is friendly and attentive. Dr. Chin is very nice and efficient. I've been a patient for about 5 years now and I'm usually in and out in under an hour.

Doctor Kurata is always very friendly with his patients. I feel relaxed and tried to understand more about eye care by having open communication with him.
Sep 9, 2019
Love how quick everything is. I'm so used to eye appointments taking forever, waiting forever, not this practice, they are efficient and have so much positive and kind energy. I also feel a great deal of trust for the information and care given.

Dr. Chin and the staff were great!

Dr. Chin and her whole team always make me feel very taken care of and take their time to ensure all of my questions are answered. This place has a great glasses selection (Salt and 141) and they make ordering online really easy if you’re looking for more colors. They always reach out for appointment reminders and are great about reminding me when my checkup is due. I would highly recommend Kurata Eyecare to anyone looking for an optometrist!

I have been getting my eyes examined at Kurata Eyecare Center since about 2003, and have seen primarily Dr. Kurata, but most recently Dr. Chin. They are both outstanding, professional, customer-service oriented, and friendly doctors that care about your vision health. During their comprehensive (much more comprehensive than any other office I've been to) exam they explain in detail what they are doing and looking for, the status of one's eye health, and what actions you need to take.
Aug 26, 2019
Hands down, my favorite eye exam experience I’ve ever had in my life. I came back to my office and told all my co-workers about how great Dr. Chin was, and the whole Kurata business.
Aug 22, 2019
My standards for doctors visits have gotten pretty low over the years. I just assume I'll have to wait around and then be rushed through my appointment only to receive a shocking bill a couple of months later. So the Kurata Eyecare Center really stands out. It's not just pleasant "for a doctors appointment". It's legitimately an enjoyable experience. Everyone is friendly and communicative, and I never feel rushed (and yet there's somehow never a wait either). It's the kind of place where the doctor will talk with you and not dumb it down, where the staff will help you pick out frames like they're your personal stylist or something. Added bonus: you can go get great sushi or ramen after your appointment.
Aug 15, 2019
Great service. Dr Chin answered all my questions. She explain what is happening to my eyes as I aged.
Aug 13, 2019
Excellent and thorough exam and eye care by Dr. Kurata. Staff and assistants are also excellent with pleasant personalities.
Aug 5, 2019
Dr. Kurata and his staff have always been stellar! I have been seeing Dr. Kurata for 18 years! I was willing to drive from the Westside to Little Tokyo for him, but now that I've moved to San Diego, I'm sad that I will need to find someone new to say "one or two." Although....he's only 2 hrs away so maybe I will see him again... :-)
Jul 28, 2019
I love the staff at Kurata. They are always extremely polite and helpful. I've been going there for 5 years despite moving farther away and changing insurance. It's worth it! Dr. Chin is incredibly thorough and kind. Her memory is excellent and her advice is sound. I never feel pressured to make unnecessary purchases or have extra tests. They are a great business that genuinely cares about its patients. Thank you!

Very fast & easy to make an appointment and have my eyes checked! First time getting my eyes dilated, and Dr. Chin walked me through each step clearly and patiently.
