Tarzana optometrist Dr. Adam Goldstone works all week plus Saturdays, and if you're the type who needs special attention, this laid-back, affable expert is the guy to see. Recent customers included a woman who came to him because she could not stand the slightly crooked way her glasses always sat on her asymmetrical face; a guy who ordered a rosy-red dark tint for his sunglasses after Dr. Goldstone discussed with him at length the visual effects of each lens-tint color choice; and a guy who asked the good doctor to fit prescription lenses into his new thrift-store find — cool, horn-rimmed glasses he'd rescued from a basket of throw-away specs at Goodwill. This small shop is friendlier and less pushy than the chains and glitzier eyewear boutiques, and there is never any pressure to buy. 18625 1/2 Ventura Blvd., Tarzana. (818) 708-2010, adamgoldstoneod.com.
