Certainly among the best experiences I’ve had.

I have been seeing both optometrists in this office for a couple of decades, and also occasionally others in SoCal, NorCal, and NYC as I've moved around the country. The accuracy and attentiveness of work here is as good as I've ever seen it, certainly among the best experiences I've had for glasses and contacts.

Paso Robles, Los Osos and Atascadero Eye Exams for Kids

Children need crisp and clear vision to learn in school, to socialize with confidence, and to perform their best in sports. Undetected vision conditions can get in the way of their success in many areas of life. That’s why pediatric eye exams are critical! Just as you, the parent, are dedicated to maximizing your child’s potential, our Los Oblos and Paso Robles eye doctors are dedicated to optimizing your child’s vision!

During a pediatric eye exam, our friendly optometrist will assess visual acuity, functional vision skills and ocular health. With a series of gentle, painless and quick tests, we will check for any signs of a pediatric vision disorder. If treatment – such as eyeglasses, contact lenses or vision therapy – is required, we’ll make sure your child receives all the eye care services necessary for sharp and healthy eyesight.

Is your eye doctor’s appointment coming up? Are you worried about going to the eye clinic during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic? Rest assured, keeping our patients and staff safe is our top priority.

We anticipate that this outbreak will continue for a while, and do not want our patients to neglect their eye care needs during this critical time. Our optometric clinic is prudent and has adopted specific measures to protect our patients and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19 during this time of uncertainty.

That said, guidelines for slowing the spread of this pandemic are rapidly changing. Please pay close to attention to local regulatory changes to get the most up-to-date information. Our practice is up to date with the current local, state and federal recommendations. Read more.

Here Are the Precautions Our Eye Clinic Is Taking to Limit COVID-19:

We employ a strict office policy that mandates that all eye doctors, opticians, office staff, and patients not enter if they are feeling unwell or have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, or have been exposed to a known case of COVID-19 or traveled outside of the country within the last 14 days.

The staff may ask you to wait outside or in your car rather than in the waiting area in order to protect yourself and others from any circulating germs. Furthermore, we are trying to schedule our appointments in such a way that our waiting room remains as empty as possible.

During your eye exam:

  • The eye doctor may use a special plastic barrier called a slit-lamp breath shield to block the exchange of breath between patient and doctor.
  • The practitioner will wait for your slit-lamp eye exam to be over before speaking with you or answering any questions you may have.
  • We sanitize all equipment and patient contact surfaces after every use and at the end of the day.
  • We sanitize all surfaces and equipment (front desk counters, telephones, pens, door handles, waiting room chairs) with antibacterial wipes.
  • All staff members wash their hands after contact with each patient and throughout the day.
  • Our office is equipped with several sanitizing stations.
  • We request that patients sanitize their hands prior to and after trying on frames. We also make sure to clean frames that have come into contact with patients
  • If we don’t shake hands with our patients during this time, please don’t take it personally.

Please call Optometric Care Associates at one of our three locations Paso Robles 805-238-1001, Los Osos 805-528-5333 or Atascadero 805-466-6939 with any questions or concerns you may have. If you feel it’s best for you or a member of your family to reschedule your appointment, we encourage you to do so.
