Lumen Optometric

ODG created a premium eye-wear experience bringing together a boutique front of house with the latest vision therapy technology and services.

Sierra Madre, ca


ODG created the right blend of clinical and retail so that patients would feel like they were in an approachable, hygienic environment. Using warm wood tones and pop colors we were able to provide visual fun while using warm grey and white tones for exam rooms - making the space feel reliable and friendly without feeling overly medical.


The design was inspired by the simplicity and comfort of California MidCentury residential design - combining organic materials and quirky geometric shapes to keep things feeling light and bright.

Owners Dr. Eric To and Michelle Yee wanted to create a space friendly to all ages. After their recent opening, the small town has commemorated them for bringing life back into an otherwise sleepy corner of Sierra Madre Blvd.


"Our frequent photographer Laure Joliet recently sent us these images of a cute, midcentury-inspired optometrist and eyeglass boutique that she shot just outside of Pasadena. Called Lumen Optometric, the airy, pastel-punctuated space was designed by Otto Design Group."
