Eye Care Services

Examination services available at Los Altos Optometric Group include comprehensive eye examinations and vision analysis – testing for vision, eye coordination and pathological conditions. We prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses, and are co-managing doctors for LASIK and all forms of refractive surgery. We diagnose and treat many forms of eye infections and inflammation and when we find conditions that require a specialist (cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration; even high blood pressure and diabetes, to name a few) we will make the appropriate referral. In short, we are a primary-care optometric practice.

Services we provide or *co-manage include:

  • Learn more about what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
  • Early identification of a child's vision problem is crucial.
  • Currently, the prevalence of myopia (nearsightedness) in children is the highest it has ever been.  Our experienced doctors are able to utilize a variety of clinical methods that can stop or slow down the progression of myopia in a child's eyes.
  • Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer the Optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams.
  • Our eye doctors fit a wide variety of specialty contact lenses for patients that cannot wear conventional soft or RGP lenses for vision correction.
  • Orthokeratology, or CRT (Corneal Reshaping Therapy) is the process of reshaping the eye with specially-designed rigid gas permeable contact lenses. The goal of ortho-k is to flatten the front surface of the eye and thereby correct mild to moderate amounts of nearsightedness and astigmatism.
  • A non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.
  • OCT is advanced technology that uses light waves to gather cross-sectional images of the retina.  It can be used to aid in diagnosis of disease or as an additional screening to assure eye health.
  • Dry eyes result from the chronic lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye, which can cause minor irritations, an inability to wear contact lenses and an increased risk of corneal inflammation and eye infections.
  • Glaucoma testing involves measuring eye pressure, testing visual fields, and taking detailed scans of the optic nerve.  Results of testing help our doctors diagnose glaucoma and decide on treatment.
  • Vision Therapy is a non-surgical, doctor-directed program of visual activities designed to improve visual skills and correct vision problems such as lazy eye, double vision, and certain reading/learning disabilities.
  • Eye injuries range from the very minor such as getting soap in your eye, to the catastrophic such as chemical exposures or lacerations, which could result in permanent loss of vision. Find out when to seek immediate medical care.
  • Macular degeneration is an eye disease that affects the portion of the eye responsible for processing fine detail and providing sharp central vision (called the macula).
  • Used to detect diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration, it is critical to confirming the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures.
  • Cataract surgery removes the natural lens of the eye that has become opaque, and replaces it with a synthetic lens.
  • If you're ready for an alternative to glasses and/or contacts, LASIK may be the right solution for you!
  • Low vision is the term used to describe reduced eyesight that cannot be fully corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or eye surgery. The primary causes of low vision are eye diseases, but low vision also can be inherited or caused by an eye or brain injury.
  • Sports eyewear can give you the performance edge you're seeking for just about any sport (tennis, racquetball, etc.) or recreational activity (hunting, fishing, etc.). It can also provide the safety and eye protection you need as well.
  • Measures the quality of your side vision (peripheral vision). Usually involves covering one eye and focusing the other on a fixed point in front of you, while describing what you can see on the “periphery” of your vision. 
  • Through InfantSEE®, optometrists provide a one-time, comprehensive eye and vision assessment to babies in their first year of life, usually between the ages of 6 and 12 months, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income or ability to pay.
