Comprehensive Eye Exams

On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment once or twice a year depending on the severity.

During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health.

Computer Vision

Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.

If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.

Myopia Control

Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects from afar. If you are experiencing nearsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.

LASIK Co-Management  Compton, CA

LASIK Co-Management

LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.

Pediatric Eye Exams

Here at Compton Eyecare, we are proud to offer pediatric eye examinations. Children should have their first eye exam around the age of six months. If the first exam finds that their eyes are healthy, they won’t need another appointment until they are between the age of two and three.

Although many schools offer annual eye exams, they are not complete visual exams and the results can be inaccurate. For this reason, you should schedule yearly or bi-yearly examinations to ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and that he or she can see clearly.

Digital Retina Imaging  Compton, CA

Digital Retina Imaging

Using a digital camera system, our optometrists at Compton Eyecare can clearly see and examine your retina, located at the back of your eye. This examination is critical to monitoring the health of your eye as well as to the early detection of many medical problems. The pictures generated through retinal imaging help us identify problems with your vision and can also help diagnose other medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, or even brain tumors.

Digital retinal imaging is important because, often, vision or eye problems can develop with no clear symptoms. Subtle changes in your vision can be hard to detect and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or retinal tears may only be visible through these images. Even in healthy eyes, retinal imaging is important as it allows us to track changes in your eyes over time so we can better predict and prepare for common issues that affect eyes as they age.

Strabismus, also known as tropia, is the medical term for a variety of common eye conditions. Most commonly known as cross-eyed, it also includes eye turns, wall-eyes, wandering eyes and more. However, Strabismus does not include the condition known as lazy eye; this is referred to as amblyopia.

Strabismus is a vision condition in which a person, under normal conditions, cannot align both eyes simultaneously. It may be constant or intermittent and occurs in both adults and children.

Strabismus will not go away on its own and does require treatment, often a treatable condition. It is estimated that 5 percent of all children have some degree of strabismus and it usually starts with double vision. In an effort to correct or avoid the double vision, the brain will eventually suppress the image in one of the eyes; referred to as suppression. Children will not outgrow Strabismus and it’s important that you seek treatment and care for them right away.

There are many different types of Strabismus and each type has its own causes, characteristics and requires a specific treatment plan. If you are experiencing anything mentioned above, anything unusual in your vision it’s important you seek out help from a specialist.
