I have been a patient of Dr. Oku’s for about 5 years. I live around the area and I am the type of person that likes looking for services I need that are close to home. Luckily, I came across Dr. Oku’s office in 2008 and have been his patient since. The service has always been professional and efficient! I always look forward to my annual eye exam! Thanks Dr. Oku and great staff!!

I have had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Oku for as long as I can remember. Not only is he an RHS Alumni like me, but he’s just exceptional at what he does and an awesome friend. Dr. Oku and his staff are extremely welcoming and sensitive to my needs. From the time I walk-in the door and until I walk-out, I feel cared-for, appreciated and overall comfortable. Thank you Dr. Oku for caring for my eyes. Jimmy for being patient with my undesiveness when choosing frames (I take long hehehe!). With no hesitation I highly recommend Dr. Oku to family and friends who live in the area and to those who commute, work and study near by.

My life’s mantra is whatever makes life easy and user friendly. Dr. Oku has been my eye Dr for over 11 years. When its comes to the care of my eyes, that’s always been his specialty. I’m always able to get an appt very easily, without much wait or delay,even when I have an emergency.Dr Oku has an beautiful office in an easy to find location, right off the Pomona Frwy, on Atlantic Blvd.There’s ample,free parking,I like that.When I wanted to try contact lenses,I had some hesitation. He made it easy for me by allowing me to try them first,with a free trial pair,with no obligation to buy them if I change my mind.He even gave me plenty of contact lens solution samples. Once I tried them , I loved them. As I became older and started having problems reading up close, he made adjustments which allowed me to read up close,with contacts and without reading glasses, fantastic!!! Once when my contacts went down the drain, and I was in dire need,he gave me an emergency pair to hold me over till my order came in.What more can one ask,when it comes to Eye Care, Dr.Oku has definitely made my life easier.

The staff at Oku Optometry is incredibly efficient and kind. When I went to get my eyes examined, they did an absolute fantastic job assisting me. I would like to commend Dr. Oku for his expertise in the field. He knew exactly what procedures to perform during my examination, making me feel comfortable. Being a high school student, it is very important that places like this make me feel this way. I will definitely stick with Oku Optometry! It’s a great place for ALL ages.

Dr Oku was recommended to me by an acquaintance when I experienced a sudden ocular emergency. I was looking forward to a social function that same evening with Magic Johnson, Sandy Koufax, former teammate Fernando Valenzuela, and a great number of Dodger greats (past and present). I was grateful that Dr Oku was able to squeeze me in to see me that same day. He made sure that I got the medical care I needed and followed my progress until I was fully recovered. Unfortunately, I missed my function, because I wanted to go looking like a ball player, not a boxer caught looking the wrong way. I can now resume my PR appearances, thanks to Dr Oku and his great staff, Jimmy and Rosa. Thank you Oku Optometry, Go Dodger Blue!!!

I would recommend Dr. Oku to anyone interested in a new or change of optometrist. Dr. Oku has been my optometrist for the past 4 years and had no complaints. Dr. Oku is patient, informative, accommodating and caring. The staff provides exceptional customer service. A plus about this optometry was the selection of designer frames.

Dr. Oku has been our family optometrist for many years, ever since our kids were little. He and his staff are always very nice and professional. He is also thorough in his examination and takes the time to answer your questions and explain things. We’ve had a few emergencies and he made the time to see us right away. Without hesitation, I would recommend Dr. Oku.

Dr. Russell K.Oku, OKU Optometry, is such a great place to get my family and vision care done. The doctor and office staff is so professional and the environment is comfortable. I love going there to take care of my family and I vision needs. I appreciate the thoroughness of the facility.


I finally found a new eye doctor nearby that I really like. I used to go all the way to pasadena for great service and fast order of my contacts but one day I gave this place a try and I was not disappointed! Dr. Oku is very nice and listens to my concerns and addresses them well. My husband also came here and had the same great service.


Dr. Very sweet and friendly, staff very helpful and welcoming. Highly recommend. Great prices and great service, I’ve been going for years.

Faith R.

I’ve been going to Dr. Oku for almost 6 years and he and his team have always delivered excellent professional service in a kind and warm manner. If you drive by Atlantic Blvd. and the 60 fwy, it’s a great place to take care of your eye health needs!

Melissa M.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Oku for about 6 years. He is very friendly and does a thorough job with my eye exams every year. The office staff are very friendly and welcoming as well . I order contacts and they are ready for pickup within a few days. I’ve moved to the Southbay and still drive all the way to Monterey Park to go to Oku Optometry!


I just had my first eye exam in about 7 years. I’m not a big fan of doctors. I was treated extremely well by Dr Russ and the staff. With my first visit Dr Russ took his time with me, I didn’t feel rushed through. He treated me like a valued client, which I’m finding rare nowadays. His staff also took their time with me while I did my frame shopping and addressed my concerns about my first pair of glasses. So far the whole experience has been more than I expected. THANK YOU OKU OPTOMETRY!

Julie C.

This eye doctor office is the best. Dr. Oku is great and the staff is the best . They take many insurance companies. Give them a call,

Dr. Oku and his friendly staff have had my family members and I coming back for many many years. I have tried to go to a couple of other doctors because I moved out of the area, but I always manage to keep coming back to Dr. Oku. I will make to trip because of the outstanding service they offer!

Lucky C.

Love Dr.Russell and his staff. I started going to get my eyes checked by him over 6 years ago. When I moved out of the area I tried another optometrist. Big mistake, I was just another chart number. I ended up going back to Dr. R. He truly cares about his clients and always explains everything. Great customer service & great selection of glasses.

Elena F.

The doctor took his time in explaining the results of my exam. He was very knowledgeable. They have a great selection of glasses. The prices are reasonable. Great staff!


Dr Oku is a great optometrist. I highly recommend Dr Oku to both my friends and family. He is very thorough with his patients during eye exams and answers all questions patients may have.

They also have a very friendly staff. The staff is very welcoming and they try to help you as much as possible. They have a lot of brand frames which are reasonably priced. Above all, the service is great, like I said before: “very friendly.” That is why my family and I have been attending for years. I also have friends who have switch optometrist after their first visit.
