Comprehensive Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are essential to not only update your prescription, but also ensure your eye health is in tip-top shape. Whether you visit us for a comprehensive, pediatric, diabetic, or contact lens exam, you can count on our eye doctors to fully evaluate your vision and walk you through every step of your care.

Our Designer Eyewear Collection


We carry a wide range of glasses and sunglasses in all the brands, shapes, and colors you can think of, making eyewear shopping a breeze. Our optical experts will get to know you and your preferences, then guide you through frames from GUCCI®, COACH®, Ray-Ban®, and more to help you find a pair (or two) that deliver unmatched clarity and show off your distinctive style.

Dry Eye Treatment at La Paz Optometric Center

Personalized Dry Eye Therapy


While there are various factors that contribute to dry eye disease, our experienced eye doctors can accurately determine the root cause of your case using state-of-the-art LipiScan® technology. Then, based on your lifestyle and vision needs, they’ll work with you to develop a customized dry eye therapy plan with TearCare® or LipiFlow® to give you meaningful, long-lasting relief.

Advanced Myopia Control


Myopia is an extremely common condition that causes faraway objects to appear blurry. Although glasses and contacts correct vision, they don’t fix the underlying issue, an elongated eyeball, causing stronger prescriptions and increased eye disease risk. Our optometrists provide multiple myopia control options, such as ortho-k and multifocal lenses, to slow myopia progression and keep your vision clear for years to come.

Eye Disease Care


At La Paz Optometric Center, we know early diagnosis is crucial to protect your sight now and in the long run. Combining our doctors’ experience with the latest equipment — including Optos retinal imaging and ocular coherence tomography (OCT) — we can catch and manage eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration well before they affect your vision.

Avulux® Migraine & Light Sensitivity Glasses


La Paz Optometric Center in Laguna Hills, CA, proudly provides Avulux® migraine-reducing eyeglass lenses for patients experiencing migraine and light sensitivity. These lenses are clinically proven to filter about 97% of specific migraine-triggering light, such as harmful blue, red, and amber colors.

Dr. Michael Lum clearly explained my results and my options so that I would receive the right prescription for my multiple visual needs5. Huge selection of frames to choose from which could have been overwhelming but Erin hand selected many for me to choose from and between us we were able to quickly find the perfect pair.I have never been excited to go to for an eye exam or to pick out glasses but I now look forward to my appointments at this office.

LaPaz Optometric is a wonderful practice, both for regular eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses, and also for more complex well eye visits. I've had two eye related health issues in the last 18 months, and both times the team here was able to quickly fit me in, do a thorough exam, and leave me treatment and guidance that made me confident in the health of my eyes. Plus, everyone is so friendly, I don't ever have to sit around and wait, the equipment is very modern and confidence inspiring, and all three doctors I've met are very knowledgeable, great with patients, and just plain nice people! Highly recommend!
