Morton "Mort" Kenneth Greenspoon, O.D.  was a second generation 

"Optometrist to the Stars." He was the only son of Reuben Greenspoon and Stella Blum Greenspoon. He moved to California from New York with his parents in 1933 and graduated from Beverly Hills High School in 1946. Mort married the love of his life, Sandra "Sandy" Helene Mondshine, in 1954. He is survived by his three daughters, Claudia Linn Mosher, Ronda Diane Carnegie, and Andrea Lee Medina. He is also survived by his six grandchildren, Tamar Knoller Raucher, Karen Knoller Doolittle, Stella Carnegie, Joseph Carnegie, Melissa Medina, and Rachel Medina, and his great-grandchildren, Judah Reuben Raucher and Elijah Moses Raucher. Mort was a loving husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather. His favorite phrase was "You only live life once but if you do it right once is enough." He was known for his good humor and dedication to family. Mort attended the University of Southern California and graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1951. He opened his own practice that same year in Sherman Oaks, California, now known as Professional VisionCare Associates, and saw patients a week before his death. He took over his father's special cosmetic contact lens practice in the early 1950s and was later the first optometrist to receive a movie credit for his work on The Lost Boys in 1987.
