Dr. Vivian Shibayama, formerly Dr. Phan, has been with UCLA since 2011. She graduated cum laude from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Post graduation, she completed a 1 year specialty contact lens fellowship at Stein Eye Institute and stayed on staff taking over the specialty lens practice from her mentor Barry Weissman. Her practice consists of 80% specialty fits including keratoconus, post corneal transplants, scars, dry eyes, post refractive ectasia, and infantile aphakia. Being with the university has allowed her to be on the cutting edge of technology, fitting all types of lenses such as custom rigid, soft, hybrid and scleral lenses. UCLA also offers custom molded scleral lenses that are made to fit the contour of a patient's eye perfectly.
Dr. Shibayama also fits contact lenses for patients with normal refractive error: custom made soft or rigid contacts, single vision or multifocal. She is the chief optometrist for the UCLA athletics department, making custom lenses for the UCLA athletes.
