Fountain Valley optometry
Eye health is important, and it should never be overlooked, which is why annual eye exams are so vital to remember. Eye exams can tell you a lot about your eye health and your vision, but it can also tell you more about your overall health as well. Here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry we can provide you with the exams you need and with any treatment you may need as well. With Fountain Valley optometry, you can have certain conditions diagnosed, monitored, and treated, even if you have something along the lines of cataracts.
Cataracts develop as the lens of the eye thickens. There is a clear tissue over the eye that acts a bit like the lens of a camera does for the eye and it is known as the cornea. Cataracts often develop in people who are over the age of 65, people who have diabetes, as well as people who have suffered from eye damage in the past, but there are other factors that may make cataracts more likely. This is why eye exams are so important, and on a regular basis. Routine eye exams can help to identify early warning signs and symptoms so the issue can be treated as soon as possible. Early on, cataracts are treated like nearsighted is, with increasingly stronger prescription lenses. But as cataracts develop further, lenses may not help and surgery may be needed instead. Here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry, we can provide you with comprehensive exams that spot early signs of cataracts and we can also provide you with regular treatment and care if you already happen to have cataracts. With Fountain Valley optometry, you can take care of your eyesight and ensure that issues like cataracts are taken care of.

Costa Mesa LASIK co-management
At the offices of Jeffrey H Brown Optometry, we provide custom made contact lenses, eyeglasses and designer frames as well as appointments for eye exams and Costa Mesa LASIK co-management. LASIK co-management evaluates the eyes before surgery to determine if the patient is a candidate for LASIK surgery and to receive all the necessary measurements your surgeon needs. The co-managing physician continues postoperative care and reports progress back to the surgeon.
Before your Costa Mesa LASIK co-management, we’ll provide you with a full eye exam that starts with a full medical history inquiry. This also helps us diagnose any problems that may happen in the future and allow us to better diagnose any existing problems before your LASIK surgery. Dilated exams can detect over 30 systemic conditions including diseases such as diabetes and conditions like high blood pressure or tumors. If needed, we will prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses and any medication for eye disease as well. LASIK is a simple procedure that takes only about 15 minutes in our offices and can be done quickly and conveniently, allowing patients the use of full vision afterwards.
Our Costa Mesa LASIK co-management procedures help us to evaluate your eyes before your surgery to make sure they’re healthy. We also offer pediatric eye care. Because one in four school children may suffer from issues with their eye health that can impact their education and cause them to have poor academic performance, it is recommended that they receive their first eye exam before they turn six months old, another at three years old, and another exam before they enter the first grade. After children enter school, they should have an eye exam at least once every other year unless problems arise with their eyes. Call our offices for more information and to make an appointment for LASIK co-management procedures.
