Monterey Heights reading glasses

Monterey Heights Optometrist

Your vision is important. Any changes in your visual acuity, no matter how small, can have an effect on your everyday life. If you are living with an inadequate vision prescription or are not wearing vision correction when you should be, then you are most likely suffering from a slew of inconvenient symptoms. Here with our optometrist Edward Soss, OD, you can be sure that your eyes are in good hands, even if you simply need Monterey Heights reading glasses.

Patients of all kinds should make sure that they pay their eye doctor or optometrist a visit. Whenever you are planning your routine exams and annual checkups, it is important that you make sure to include your eye doctor as well. Even if you have no known eye conditions or even if you have perfect vision, it does not mean that you are exempt from ever developing any eye conditions or vision problems. In fact, even adults who have lived most of their life without glasses or contacts find that they need some form of visual assistance once they get older. Typically, as adults age, the cornea begins to weaken and lose its shape. An eye that is capable of perfect vision is perfectly dome shaped but as that dome becomes flatter and loses its elasticity with age, farsightedness can develop. This is often why adults over the age of forty find that they develop the need for reading glasses. Here with our optometrist, Edward Soss, OD, you can make sure that you get the most comprehensive eye exam, the most precise vision prescription as well as the perfect pair of reading glasses that you need in order to see comfortably and clearly again. Monterey Heights reading glasses are a cinch with Edward Soss, OD.

If you notice a change in your vision, or have noticed an increased difficulty in being able to see objects or read things up close, then you may need Monterey Heights reading glasses. A comprehensive eye exam here with our optometrist Edward Soss, OD can provide you with all of the help and care that you need in order to see well again.

At the optometry office of Dr. Edward Soss, we examine the eye for routine purposes, diagnose and treat eye diseases, assess health risks based on the appearance of the eyes and advise patients on how health problems can effect the eyes and vision. We take the time to discuss all options with our patients, including the benefits of both eyeglasses and contact lenses with correcting visual impairments, like the common refractive errors of nearsightedness and farsightedness. Our Ingleside optometrist, Dr. Soss is well-known in the San Francisco area for his gentle and caring approach to eye care, as well as his dedication to his patients.

Comprehensive Eye Exams. A comprehensive eye exam will include a thorough vision and health history, testing the visual acuity, eye muscle balance, tracking, focusing ability, a microscopic examination of the structures in the front of the eye, and an examination of the structures in the back of the eye which may require dilation of the pupil, depending on the case.  Also, each patient is evaluated closely to assure that there is no glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration. Additionally, our Sunnyside California eye doctor will make house calls to those patients that are housebound or in convalescent homes/hospitals.

Contact Lenses. We also offer contact lens evaluation and fitting services.  Whether you require special fitting due to eye disease or trauma, or like most patients, you want to see clearly without glasses, our doctors will find the right lens for your eye. This occasionally includes measuring the arc of your eye to ensure a comfortable fit. We most frequently prescribe soft contact lenses to our patients because of their tremendous comfort. With all the advances in optical goods, contact lenses are now available for patients with astigmatism and dry eyes. We also offer colored contact lenses for those looking to change their eye color.

Glaucoma Diagnosis and Testing. As the second leading cause of blindness, glaucoma is a very serious eye condition. At our Westwood Park optometry office, we have state of the art technology for diagnosing, treating and managing glaucoma.  This includes scanning laser polarimetry which assesses the nerve fiber layer of the retina.  Humphrey perimetry which is the gold standard for peripheral vision testing.  Additionally, we utilize canon digital image photography to document any changes that may occur due to glaucoma.
