Dr. Kurata and his team are great! I've never had to wait long when I have an appointment. Dr. Kurata is so nice, he has a great demeanor and is always smiling. Their office is conveniently located in Little Tokyo not far from the arts district or core downtown.

I’ve been coming to Kurata since I was in high school. The service is fast and great! The staff always makes me feel welcomed :) Even though I’ve moved to San Diego, I still come back to Kurata because they’ve set the standards so high and no other optometrist I’ve been to has been able to beat them. I highly recommend you come here! You will get great service and care!

Although my husband and I now live in the Valley, we still come back to Kurata Eye Care for our annual exam. We thoroughly enjoy our visits with Dr. Kurata and Dr. Chin. The reason for the long wait time including exam is that because I'm diabetic, my eyes take long to dialate.

dr kurata was exactly the type of medical professional you want to meet on your first meeting: patient, understanding, not pushy or rushing in anyway, and not trying to hit you up with extra charges. A really great person and fountain of knowledge.

Everyone at Kurata Eyecare was super friendly and helpful. Dr. Kurata was very thorough and explained everything he was doing during my eye exam. I felt very comfortable here, and will definitely come back! Thank you for the excellent service!

I have been wearing glasses for over 20 years and have visited optometrists all over California, and can honestly say that Dr. Kurata and Dr. Chin provide some of the best quality, friendliest and honest eye care. I have been faithful Kurata Eyecare patient for a few years and have recommended many friends who are happy to be patients there too!

Always a thorough exam, professional, and a good experience!

I have been doing my annual eyes checkup with Dr. Kurata for several years now, I could not be happier. He explains everything in detail and both him and the girls in the front desk always have a friendly attitude.
Jul 19, 2018
Excellent service and care, can't recommend highly enough.
Jul 7, 2018
I really appreciate the level of care I receive here. A small, intimate eye shop with a good selection of frames and attentive doctors.

I’ve been taking my children to see Dr. Chin for their eye exams for 5 years now - ever since my daughter was 6 months old and I suspected an issue. Dr. Chin is very gentle, thorough and so kind. She is extremely supportive and receptive to concerns and is very honest. My kids have always done so well with her. My daughter sees an ophthalmologist at CHLA and my daughter is always so much happier leaving Dr. Chin’s office - she can get little ones to cooperate without tears. My husband and I also see her for our regular checkups and she will always follow up to make sure we’re doing well. I cannot recommend Kurata Eyecare enough. She really cares about her patients.

Dr. Kurata and his staff are always so welcoming, courteous, informative, and kind! I really feel like Dr. Kurata cares about his patients and takes the time to explain anything I might have questions about, from equipment in his office, treatments, and test/exam results. He is also a great conversationalist! I not only recommend his practice to those who work at my office, since he is so conveniently located, but I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a quality optometrist.

Best service from an Optician ever experienced. Love visiting Kurata Eyecare.
Jun 25, 2018
Dr. Kurata is very patient and works hard to ensure I receive the best fit contact for my eye condition. He has improved my prescription with each contact fitting. Thank you Dr. Kurata for being an amazing eye doctor.

I have been returning for 10 years.

They were able to get me into an appointment the next day that I called for one. Very quick and good service. Not much paperwork to fill out when you check in; if anything super simple 3 pages to fill out. Once inside for my exam, it was very straight forward and quick, yet very detailed as well. They attended me super quickly which I appreciate at any clinic, doctors office, etc.
Jun 21, 2018
Dr. Chin is a consummate professional. She is thorough and very practical in her recommendations for care, which I appreciate. If we ever moved out of the neighborhood, I would definitely travel back to Kurata to see her. She is that good!

Kurata Eyecare is the best in the business!
Jun 11, 2018
Thank you so much Dr. Kurata for the examination. Also, Thank you so much for giving me an eye drop. That's great for my dry eyes. I can't wait to get my glasses!
May 31, 2018
I had a great experience from the moment I walked in. I was greeted. I came in near closing time but still managed to get a walk in appointment. I left 30 minutes after business hours. That goes a long way. The office is wonderful and I would highly recommend everyone to reconsider their own eye care provider and switch here. My wife just got her eyes checked but I’m coming back here with her in 2 weeks.

Dr. Chin is kind, attentive and caring. I would highly recommend her to anybody. She takes the time to ask questions, explain things I don't understand, and make recommendations for my health. Thank you Dr. Chin!

Apr 5, 2018
Very professional and takes care of patience needs and also not pushy about options.
Apr 3, 2018
Dr. Kurata is very patient and thoughtful. I have very bad/high prescription eyes and he takes a lot of time and care with me and to find the best fitting contacts and prescription necessary, which isn't easy. He makes the whole process comfortable and manageable. I highly recommend him for all your seeing needs!
Apr 3, 2018
By FAR the best experience I've had! I've been coming to Kurata Eyecare for a couple of years now & every time I leave in a better mood than I came in. The front desk is extremely & genuinely kind and helpful. Dr. Kurata is the most personable and knowledgeable Dr. I've had in a very long time. The culture of their business is really great & it shows. I can't wait to go back & choose my new glasses with the front desk gals' help :)
Mar 30, 2018
I recommend your office all the time.
Mar 22, 2018
I always look forward to my visits. The staff is friendly, I'm never kept waiting (unlike practically every other doctor's office I've been to), and afterwards I can go get some Japanese food or a fancy coffee. I even convinced my girlfriend to start coming here.
