Eye Exam

Keep seeing and looking your best by having your eyes checked annually. Most eye diseases do not have symptoms to warn you of a problem because there are no pain receptors inside the eyes. This is why it is important to have your eyes examined every year to detect eye health problems before they impair your vision.

At Hollywood Vision, we offer same day eye exams without an appointment. Please call us to check availability: 323-954-5800

Most of what you do is dependent on your eyes: Sports, computer work, school, studying, working, reading, driving a car, shopping, balance, hobbies, watching TV or movies, your energy level, and even just walking around. Benefits and Reasons for eye exams:

More Than Meets the Eye

Eye Exam

Our comprehensive eye exam includes:

  • Customized glasses prescription including prescriptions that help you perform your best for computer use, sports, night driving, video monitors for editing, photography, painting, etc.
  • Neurological screening (since 80% of the brain is related to visual function).
  • Eye health exam for diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, dry eyes, environmental sensitivities and allergies.
  • Examine for health problems that are visible in the eyes, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol, allergies, stress, and autoimmune diseases.
  • Blood pressure screening since high blood pressure is fairly common and often goes undetected.
  • Eye pressure screening for glaucoma.
  • Educate patients on lens and prescription options followed by custom lens design by our highly trained opticians.
