FULL EYE HEALTH AND VISION EXAMINATIONS
Based on extensive research, the American Optometric Association recommends a yearly eye exam to sustain eye health. Therefore, we take pride in providing our patients with comprehensive eye health and vision examinations. These regular examinations aid in detecting abnormalities and preventing disease.
As dedicated optometrists, we believe a healthy vision is more than just “20/20”. Our exams are focused on assessing a variety of conditions and coordination skills. We evaluate for signs of threatening conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.
We also believe that patient-doctor communication is key. All tests and results will be discussed with patients to ensure a complete understanding of their current eye health and personal requirements.
SENIOR AND CHILDREN EYE EXAMINATIONS
West Coast Optical is the front runner in providing highly skilled optometry care for our senior patients for their visual system health. We provide thorough eye examinations at affordable pricing and help our patients understand their symptoms, no matter how minor they may seem.
We also understand that visiting an optometrist can seem scary for children, which is why we focus on creating a safe and fun environment for our younger patients. By providing children with regular eye examinations, we are safeguarding their visions for the future.

CATARACT AND GLAUCOMA CO-MANAGEMENT
Cataracts and glaucoma are very common eye disorders that affect millions of people all over the world. Although common, if left untreated, they may lead to complete loss of vision.
At our optometry clinic, we take pride in providing advanced eye care necessary to counter these diseases. Our specialized and sophisticated care is tailored to provide care for even advanced cases and includes secondary and tertiary care. For further testing and management of these difficult eye conditions, we also provide referrals for advanced surgery if required.
DRY EYE MANAGEMENT
Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a common disease of the tears and surface of the eye. It occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears do not have the right composition. As we get older, our tear production slows and the composition of our tears can change.
Common causes of DES include medications, hormones, medical conditions, seasonal allergies and environmental conditions including poor air quality, low humidity, AC, infrequent blinking from staring at computer or TV screens and/or long-term contact lens wear.
The symptoms of DES include:
- Burning, red eyes
- Dry, gritty sensation
- Eye pain
- Stringy eye discharge
- Blurred vision
- Light sensitivity
- Eye fatigue or heavy eyelids
- Discomfort with contact lens wear
Our expert optometrist provides specialized treatment plans based on each individual’s diagnoses to ensure an accurate, timely and successful recovery.
