Meet Your Optician

The opticians at The Classical Eye will take into account your face shape, hairstyle, and lifestyle needs to guide you toward a glasses or sunglasses selection that helps you look good, feel confident, and see clearly.  

Lens Choices

Your specific vision problems, the strength of your prescription, and your lifestyle are all factors in your lens type and lens treatment decisions. At The Classical Eye, we offer high index, multifocal, progressive addition, Transitions®, polycarbonate, and polarized lenses, as well as anti-reflective coatings and progressive lens design. Alongside the guidance of your optometrist, your optician’s training and expertise allows them to fully explain the utility and benefits of all of our offered lens types and treatments to help you make the right choices for your needs. 

The Right Frames With the Right Fit

Your optician is also a master of fit - their delicate adjustments to your glasses will make them feel as if they are custom built for your face. Say goodbye to nose slippage or pinching, thanks to your friendly optician. When it’s time for a glasses tuneup, stop by our La Jolla offices. We’re always glad to welcome you at The Classical Eye.

COVID-19 Update:

Dear Patient,
We are pleased to announce that the California Department of Public Health has given us permission to resume full scope eye care, including preventative care and postponed exams.

At Total Vision Care, the health of our patients, doctors, and associates is our top priority. We are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our community.

Health and safety protocols we are taking:

  • All visits are by appointment to ensure social distancing. This includes picking up of glasses/contact lenses, adjustments on glasses, and ordering new products.
  • Patients are asked to arrive to their appointment alone and notify us from your vehicle once you arrive (a parent/guardian may accompany a minor and a family member/caretaker may assist a senior). Please call the office and someone will greet you at the door.
  • Prior to your entry a team member will take your temperature, provide you with hand sanitizer and ask you a series of questions regarding your health and possible COVID-19 exposure. Our team members are all subject to these same screening protocols.
  • All doctors, associates, and patients must wear masks.
  • Our team sterilizes all equipment and surfaces after every patient and disinfects all frames prior to placing them back on display.

What we ask of patients:

  • If you have any of the following symptoms, you must reschedule your appointment for a future date: Fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, gastro-intestinal symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, or stomach pains), recent loss of smell or taste.
  • Please bring a mask which must be worn in our facilities at all times.
  • Your patience in adhering to new safety protocols.
  • Please feel welcome to communicate any questions that you have to your Total Vision Care practice associates.

In addition, we will continue to monitor CDC, WHO, governmental, and optometric associations guidelines and make changes as appropriate to protect our community. Thank you so much for your continued support of our practices. We appreciate your patience throughout this process and for trusting us with your eyecare needs.
