Eye Exams

Eye Exams are composed of two evaluations.

First, Dr. Spitzer evaluates your present prescription(s) and your satisfaction level with those contacts or glasses. Then, by doing a computerized auto-refraction, we can determine what the computer says your best optical prescription is (rarely what you will choose with the subjective refraction).  The subjective refraction allows you to modify what the computer "recommends" according to your best comfort level. This is the famous, "Which is better, 1 or 2?" Once that is determined, other vision performance tests are done to determine your eye coordination, focusing ability, depth perception, color vision, tendencies to strain (or cross) your eyes. These tests can help you understand why you may fatigue quickly when on the computer, or get headaches, red or itchy eyes, and how we determine the most comfortable and clear vision for you.

The second part of the exam is using the newest technology to determine any pathology of the eye from the cornea, to the lens, to the vitreous, to the retina. We can treat most conditions with medical prescriptions, nutritional therapies and assist in procedures performed by all the top surgeons in Southern CA, if a surgical treatment is necessary.

We have special therapies for Dry eyes, Itchy eyes, teary eyes, conjunctivitis, eyelid and eyelash problems and bags under your eyes.
