Vision checks preserve quality of life for San Diego residents

Clear vision plays a key role in enjoyment of life. It connects us with our surroundings. It helps us understand complex concepts, and is vital to maintaining mental sharpness. Deterioration of vision reduces productivity and eventually jeopardizes independent living. Annual vision checks from Coastal Skin and Eye Institute in San Diego help to preserve eyesight, with early detection of problems and effective vision correction solutions.

Comprehensive examination

Eye Check up The Team at Coastal Skin and Eye Institute utilize the latest technologies to provide full vision and medical eye examinations, with testing for:

  • Visual acuity – How clearly each eye sees.
  • Glaucoma – Damage to the optic nerve from elevated pressure.
  • Macular degeneration – The leading cause of vision loss, impacting more than ten million Americans.
  • Cataracts – Progressive clouding of the lens.
  • Dry eye disease – Untreated, a condition that leads to discomfort, ulcers, or corneal scars.

Actual Patient Review

The best service in my 20 year history of buying eye wear. Had to buy a pair of mid-range glasses for both music and computer use, a tough requirement. Randy provided me just the right amount of information and help to make a great choice that satisfied all my criteria, including price. I could not be happier. Originally posted on
