ENCINITAS VISION OPTOMETRY
Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of our clients eye exam, describe their options and listen to our clients eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage patients to ask questions and share their health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
