Your Annual Golden Triangle Optometric Center Eye Exam

Your eye exam will last about an hour and will be painless. Even if you don’t require prescription glasses or contact lenses and are blessed with perfect vision, regular eye exams are still a necessity. Your optometrist at Golden Triangle Optometric Center can help you arrive at an eye exam schedule tailored to your needs.

During your eye exam, your optometrist will conduct a medical history, deliver a precise glasses and/or contact lens prescription, and perform a variety of tests and screenings designed to detect your risk of potential eye diseases or conditions. Early detection can help improve treatment outcomes for many eye problems, so your optometrist takes special care to examine your eyes and ensure you are in optimal health.

Your Comprehensive Eye Exam Will Consist of:

Medical History

Family history of eye diseases and conditions is one of the strongest risk factors of developing those same diseases and conditions, so your optometrist will need this information if available. However, your optometrist will also ask you about your general health. Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and behaviors such as smoking can also increase your risk of eye disease. The information you supply gives your optometrist more tools to help you stay healthy.

Vision Tests

Your optometrist will use a variety of tests to evaluate your vision and visual acuity. It is during this part of the exam that the eye doctor can diagnose a refractive error and/or determine your glasses prescription. If you also want contact lenses, a contact lens fitting can be scheduled separately or be performed at the same time. Your optometrist will also test your peripheral vision, observe the alignment of your eyes and how well they are working together, and check the reactivity of your pupils.

Eye Disease Screenings

Depending on your age and individual risk factors, this part of the exam may include more or fewer screenings. All patients can expect to be screened for glaucoma with a measurement of their inner eye pressure. Additionally, the eye doctor will use light, mirrors, and microscopes to non-invasively examine the inner structures and back of the eye for any signs of damage or disease. 


Each step of your eye exam gives your optometrist important information about your vision and eye health. Prevention of eye disease is as important as the treatment of eye disease! Your annual eye exam allows your optometrist to guide you toward the most beneficial choices for your eye health as they help you maintain your vision. 

As part of the Total Vision eye care network, the optometrists at Golden Triangle Optometric Center have the additional benefit of access to cutting edge diagnostic and treatment technology. Even if eye problems arise, you and your family will have the best possible treatment options available right here in University City.

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:

  • 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.
