Seeing eyeglasses in a new light in San Diego

Young man Biking The Vision Council of America reports that about 75 percent of adults in this country need some level of vision correction. Fortunately, today’s optical consumer in the San Diego area has more choices than ever in eye glasses and contact lenses. Quality eyewear is an important investment in how you see and how you look. The optical team at Coastal Skin and Eye Institute is here to help.

Role of the optician

An optician prepares and dispenses eyeglasses. It may seem like a straightforward job, but integrity and dedication have a big impact on the outcome. The optician must be qualified to accurately fill the prescription of the optometrist or ophthalmologist. In addition, a good optician works closely with the patient to assist in:

  • Selecting attractive frames.
  • Understanding lens options, such as anti-glare coatings and scratch resistant materials.
  • Determining pupil distance.
  • Adapting the final product for comfortable fit.
  • Making minor repairs.

Importance of licensing

Licensed opticians staff our eyewear boutique. They have successfully completed training and examination mandated by the state of California, to legally dispense spectacles. They are also certified to fit contact lenses. These helpful individuals are dedicated to your satisfaction.

Personalized approach

We take a personalized approach in determining the vision needs of each patient, from eye glasses to contact lenses, and laser vision correction. We communicate as a team, to arrive at a vision correction solution that clearly fits your needs.

Coastal Skin and Eye Institute carries a large selection of eyeglass frames and sunglass options, and many choices in contact lenses. Our professionals guide you through the process of optimizing vision, for maximum enjoyment of your active southern California lifestyle.

For eye glasses that reflect your unique character, call Coastal Skin and Eye Institute in San Diego at (858) 943-2540.
