What is a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

At our partner practices — La Paz Optometric Center, Brookhurst Optometric Center, North Tustin Ave. Optometric Center, and Mission Viejo Optometric Center — our mission is to get a full picture of your eye health and deliver the best eye care and eyewear for you.

We utilize state-of-the-art technology to track minute changes in your eye health and catch diseases well before they can impact your vision. We’ll ensure you get the most out of your eye exam, and guarantee that not only your vision and updated prescription are in tip-top shape, but that your eyes are in great health.

Why Comprehensive Eye Exams Are Essential

Your eyes are constantly changing throughout your life, and regular eye exams are key to both detecting and preventing eye diseases. Early disease diagnosis is possible with comprehensive eye exams because we’re able to spot them before they have the chance to fully develop and damage your eyes and vision. On top of the eye health benefits that comprehensive eye exams provide, they also help us to make sure that your vision correction is up-to-date as well!

Why Choose Our Optometric Centers

All of our optometric centers in southern California boast world-class eye doctors who you can trust to provide an exceptional eye care experience. We pair our skilled teams with the latest and greatest technology to ensure both our accuracy and your comfort during every appointment.

We’re proud to assist you with everything from disease management to eyewear selection, and our opticians will help you find frames that suit your vision, fashion, and lifestyle perfectly.

Pediatric Exams

When it comes to pediatric eye exams, our doctors are experts at working with children and taking care of their eyes! It’s incredibly important for children to receive regular eye exams because childhood is a key developmental stage for the eyes where growth and changes happen rapidly. Our doctors know that your child’s vision is incredibly precious, and they’ll ensure that they’re comfortable and receive quality care.

Contact Lens Exams & Fittings

Contact lenses need a precise fit, not just for your comfort, but because ill-fitting contacts don’t correct vision as well. After getting your precise contact lens prescription — which differs from a glasses prescription — our doctors will ensure that your contacts fit perfectly and that you’re wearing the best type of lenses for your vision and lifestyle.

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!

Yesterday I had my routine eye exam. Not really sure where to start with this review. The crew was amazing, professional and kind. They took their time in running all the tests and explained everything in details. After completing all the tests, Dr. Walsh took her time with me to address all the concerns, prescribe the best lenses for my glasses and contacts. They by far the most professional optometry center I’ve ever dealt with. As a patient never been that happy. Simply if you have vision challenges. That’s the place you want to be to get your treatment.So glad that I found my optometry center.The most highly recommended vision center. If there was more then 5 stars I would have definitely gave it to the team.That’s the place you should go to if you want to walk out with a smile on your face. They magically know how to draw a fat one on your face.

The staff is very friendly. Very thorough exam. I had to take my glasses back for them to adjust my focal point. They fit me in really quickly and made sure they found the issue.

I've been coming to this optometry establishment for years, and have always had nothing short of a positive experience. They are now under new management, but the service provided is still exceptional.I booked my annual eye exam, and was going in feeling comfortable. On our call, Jody had asked me to make sure to bring my mask and to fill out some paperwork via email prior to my appointment, to reduce contact and time spent in the office. Upon arrival, I was asked to call the front desk to assure that I would be socially-distanced and everything was cleaned before entering. Once entered, Jody took my temperature and then walked me through some eye tests. She made sure to wipe all of the equipment down before use, which was very assuring. I then walked into my exam, and there was a sign on the chair before sitting down stating that it had been cleaned. I had an eye exam with Dr. Hsieh, and was extremely happy with her professionalism and knowledge. We ended up trying out some new contacts! James checked the schedule and had me book a 1-week follow-up appointment to make sure that they were to my satisfaction before ordering them.I came back a week later with no problems, and ended up purchasing a year supply of contacts (which were shipped to my house promptly - in less than a week).Overall, they are one business that is following COVID guidelines well, and I will continue to give them my service!

I went in for my annual exam. I expected to be greeted by a friendly staff and I certainly was! I was told Dr Cooperman himself retired which was no problem for me as I have never met him and was always examined by another doctor on staff. I must say that this crew working there is very friendly and professional. My appointment was on time, and I felt very well taken care of. I felt like they took the time to make sure I was getting the best service. The entire staff seems very knowledgeable and efficient. I would certainly recommend this office to anyone!

Husband has an urgent need to have his eye looked at, no appointment… the office scheduled him for next day, but asked him to stick around for a bit as they worked on getting him in sooner. He was seen later in the day and given a very thorough examination and testing. They went above and beyond for him.In addition, we have experienced the staff to be very professional, patient and kind when calling to change or make appointments. Also when checking in to be seen.The office is very clean

I give two thumbs up to the dedicated office staff. I would recommend the Brookhurst Optometric Center to anyone who needs immediate vision care. I was a previous patient and hadn’t been seen for 1.5 year. I took a chance a walked in hoping to be seen.I was greeted by Jacob who was warm and welcoming. I explained my vision problem and he asked if I wanted to be seen today. I said “yes”. Jacob checked my insurance and explained me the tests that would be performed. He was so kind and helpful. I was seen 30 minutes later and had a full eye exam and was fitted for contacts. I was so thrilled. I was seen by Dr Chi. Excellent Optometrist. He was very patience with me and explained and answered every question I had. He even assisted me by plucking sn ingrown hair from my eyelid. Wow! I checked out with the girls who were delightful . I had the best experience. The entire office staff was friendly and very helpful. Stop by and see them! You”ll be happy you did.

I had a good experience at this office for my eye exam. I've been having a little trouble seeing my phone with my glasses and Dr. Chi gave me a solution on my new ones. The staff were also very helpful since I walking in the door to me choosinga new frame. They treats me like a family instead of another patient. Not having to dilate this year because of the tech they have might be one of the best part.
