Our Patients Are Like Family
We put service as highest in our line of priorities to our patients. Starting from the grandparents and down to the little ones, we are proud to be the most trusted optometrists for the Torrance community.
Contact Lens Services
Basic Spherial Lenses
When your eyes require a correction to see its best potential, contact lenses are often the choice when one prefers the all natural look.
Specialty Contact Lenses
With today's technology in contact lenses, we are now able to help patients with high astigmatism. For our more mature patients, we have multifocal lenses that will help you see distance and near. And lastly, color contact lenses are a fun choice for when you just want to change your eye color.
Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses
Rigid gas permeable lenses or "hard lenses" are still being fitted. It is the lens of choice when we are trying to control myopic (near-sighted) progression in our young patients. In some cases, it may yield better vision in folks with higher than normal astigmatism.
Eye Infections and Foreign Bodies
The doctors at Torrance Vision Center are fully licensed to diagnose and treat various ocular diseases and pathology. We often put cases of "red eyes" due to infections or inflammation as a high priority. Most patients are often seen and treated on same day visits. We also have the tools and skills necessary to remove any foreign bodies that may have found its way onto the cornea or eye from the work site or from everyday chores at home.
Retinal Screening and Monitoring
Many have said that the eyeballs are the windows to your soul. This statement may apply to one's health in general. Certain conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and various autoimmune diseases have ocular manifestations. A retinal screening is vital in monitoring these conditions. In many cases, optometrists are often the doctors who are first in finding out these cases.
Co-Management With Ophthalmology
LASIK / PRK
Laser eye surgery, refractive eye surgery, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis has been the most exciting and most talked about eye surgery for the past 20-25 years. It has changed the lives of millions who were hindered by eye glasses and/or the intolerance of contact lenses. Dr. Au and Dr. Huey are excited to have worked with some of the top names in ophthalmology and corneal specialty for LASIK. We provide patients with detailed consultations to determine candidacy for LASIK or other alternative means. We also provide pre- and post-operative care for our patients who do end up deciding on laser eye surgery.
A cataract is the clouding of the anatomical lens in our eyes. It normally forms as part of normal aging process. Cataract surgery involves a precise removal of that clouded lens and its replacement with a clear man-made intraocular lens. In most cases, the patient's eye sight returns back to normal within hours to days. Dr. Au and Dr. Huey have comanaged with various local ophthalmologists who specialize in this lens exchange procedures. Dr. Au and Dr. Huey will also help determine which intraocular lens choices (basic or multifocal lenses) are best for each particular patient in each unique cases.
