Providing Superior & Comprehensive Eye Exams in Fullerton

When It Comes to Eye Care, Prevention is the Best Medicine

Eye exams are an important part of your overall health care and should be scheduled annually.

Many eye diseases and conditions, including serious vision-threatening diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration, often start developing without noticeable symptoms. For many people, by the time enough damage to their vision has occurred to notice, it is already too late- vision that is lost is generally lost forever.

We take your eye health seriously, which is why we’ve made big investments in the latest diagnostic and imaging technology available today. Our use of advanced equipment allows us to see your eyes clearer, faster, and in minimally-invasive ways

Eye Exams Designed for You & Your Family

We subscribe to the belief that our patients deserve the best of our time and efforts. We incorporate proven advances in eye care technology and practices; we work continuously to ensure that we provide the best eye care available anywhere in Fullerton.

One piece of technology we use is the Optomap, an advanced piece of retinal imaging equipment that gives us greater visibility into the eye than ever before. Using the Optomap we can see signs of developing eye diseases, diabetes, strokes, and other important medical information

We utilize advanced equipment, such as the Optomap retinal camera and the Spectralis OCT to image and view your eye. The use of these technologies (and others) allows us to enjoy a never before possible perspective on your eye health.

Adults age 18 to 64 should have theirs eyes examined annually. Learn more about how we care for your whole family:

Our investments in advanced technology and training pay off in one obvious area: time. Our eye exams are under one hour long from start to finish and are completely non-invasive and pain free.

 

If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, we will update your corrective lens prescription (if needed) during the exam.

If you’re considering switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses, please schedule a contact lens fitting exam.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Our eye exams are designed to provide a comprehensive assessment of your ocular health. In addition to screening for vision problems and developing eye diseases, our eye exams will also identify deficiencies in color vision as well as changes in other areas of your health (Did you know that Optometrists regularly discover signs of diabetes or strokes before other medical professionals?).
 
The exam is broken down into two sections: the vision evaluation and the eye health examination with the Optometrist.
 
Vision Evaluation
Performed by the Optometrist and an Optometric Assistant, the comprehensive battery of optometric tests gives the doctor important information about your day to day visual function to make sure that you are not only seeing clearly at all ranges, but also comfortably. Many causes of eyestrain, visual fatigue, headaches, poor reading skills, computer strain, or double vision are detected and treated in this phase of the examination.
 
These tests include:
 
Refraction assessment – If corrective lenses are needed, we will refine your prescription.
Eye muscle assessment – We utilize several methods to assess your eye teaming muscles and look for abnormal movements.
Eye focusing assessment – The focusing tests are tailored specifically to changing abilities of different age groups.
Visual field test – This test assesses the size and quality of your peripheral vision.
Eye Health Examination
Performed by one of our Optometrists, these tests go in-depth to look for eye diseases and other signs of a change in your ocular health, or systemic health.
 
These tests include:
 
Complete health history – Assessing your complete ocular wellness requires that we understand your overall systemic health also.
Optomap Retinal imaging – A sophisticated camera is used to take high-resolution photos of your eye.
Slit lamp exam – Using an intense light source and a specialized magnifying lens, we look at your iris, cornea, and parts of your retina.
Tonometry – This test measures your eye pressure (an indicator in several eye diseases, including glaucoma).
Direct retinal exam – A variety of specialized tools are used to look at the inside of your eyes, at your retina, blood vessels, and optic nerve.

Eye Exams That Are Perfect For Kids

Growing eyes require a more careful assessment. Our extra-thorough eye exams give us a clear picture on your child’s eye health and overall vision quality.

 

Getting kids interested in their eyes is very rewarding for us. We try to educate and get kids excited about their eyes and the cool things that they do.

 

If your child needs corrective lenses (eyeglasses or contact lenses), it’s important to have an accurate and current prescription. Babies and infants, toddlers and preschoolers, and school-age children should have an eye exam annually.

 

Advanced equipment like the Optomap lets us get more information about your child’s eye health than previously possible. The equipment is also fun to look at and talk about- kids have compared our office to Tony Stark’s lab (take THAT, Ironman).

 

We have a variety of styles for all age groups, including the latest styles from popular brands like Penguin Jr, Converse, Ray Ban, Disney, DB4K. See all our eyewear brands.

As we age we need to be more aware of certain changes in our bodies: we can’t move as quickly as we used to, and we can’t see as well, either.

Changes happen in our eyes continuously, slowly and subtly influencing the way we see and perceive the world. Progressive disorders, such as presbyopia, develop despite otherwise perfect health. Serious eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, are also more prominent the older we are.

We Take Your Eye Health Seriously

When we examine your eyes, we go into appropriate detail to ensure that we are catching any changes to your vision early. The earlier we detect developing eye diseases, the better equipped we are to manage those changes. Please request an appointment to see an Optometrist.

 

Eye Exams Designed for Seniors

We look in all areas of your eye for signs of disease or disorders. We are especially cognisant of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinal health, and cataracts.

 

An eye exam takes approximately one hour from start to finish. Because we incorporate advanced equipment into our exams, we can go into significant detail without causing discomfort.

 

If your wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, we will ensure that your prescription is current and accurate. Part of the exam process is to assess your prescription in order to ensure it continues to provide ideal vision correction.

Great Contact Lens Comfort Starts With an Excellent Fit.
Visit Us in Fullerton.

Helping You Find Your Ideal Contacts

For millions of people all over America, contact lenses are the perfect solution to their vision problems. Whether you have myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, contact lenses can provide comfortable and hassle-free vision correction.
 
Compared to eyeglasses, contact lenses are superior in several ways. Because they fit directly over the eye’s lens, they offer superior peripheral vision acuity; also a benefit of their placement, they do not fog over on cold days or in humid places.

Considering Contact Lenses for the First Time? Let Us Help!

As contact lens experts, we will ensure you experience an enjoyable and comfortable transition from glasses. Even if you are nervous or hesitant, we will work with you step by step to provide you contact lenses that fit comfortably and provide maximum visual benefit. Request an appointment to get fitted for contacts!
 

Comfortable contact wear is heavily influenced by how well your lenses fit. With so many brands and types of contact lenses available, it can be difficult to know which is appropriate for you.

During your fitting exam we take extremely accurate and detailed measurements of your eye’s shape. These measurements, in addition to your prescription, help us determine which contacts are best suited for you.

Once we have completed our fitting exam we will send you home with a set of trial contact lenses to determine how your eyes respond over time. During your trial, it’s important to pay attention to your eye comfort and vision quality.

Because contact lens comfort and vision is so subjective, it can sometimes take a few different sets of lenses before the right one is found. It may take some time, but we are experts at customizing your contact lens solution and finding the right set of lenses for long-term comfort.

Due to their extreme popularity, innovations in contact lens technologies happen all the time. Today you can find a contact lens option for just about any prescription and application.

As each type of contact lens is unique, we are meticulous in our testing prior to dispensing any contacts for you. Proper fitment is important, as is matching the right type and shape of contact lens to you (based on your lifestyle and needs).

We utilize the latest innovations in eye care in order to provide some of the best eye exams available in Fullerton. We know that our accuracy and level of depth is an important part of helping you make informed decisions.

You can expect your contact lens evaluation to take around one hour. Chances are that we will conclude the exam by sending you home with a pair of trial contact lenses, with subsequent follow-ups to determine their effectiveness and comfort.
