In his practice, Dr. Kawakami focuses on primary care optometry. This includes the prescription of glasses and contacts as well as diagnosing and managing ocular disease ranging from common conditions like dry eyes and cataracts to eye emergencies like retinal detachments. He aims to provide high quality service during his exams because that is what he believes every patient deserves. Educating his patients about their eyes in a manner that is understandable and relatable is also of high importance to him. He hopes they can use that knowledge to live their best lives.
