In order to maintain excellent visual health, a yearly eye exam is suggested. We offer a comprehensive exam that includes glaucoma screening, visual field testing, slit lamp examination, dilation and refraction.

Contact lens exams are also available. This includes the initial exam, trial lenses, teaching session, and follow-up visits. Our staff will provide personalized fittings to assist you in selecting your contact lenses or frames.


Prescriptions from outside providers are also welcomed. Just bring in or fax (858) 534-4749 your prescription. An eye exam may be required depending on the date of the prescription. Appointments are not necessary to process current prescriptions. A visit with one of our optometrists does require an appointment.
