Eye care is more than focusing on your eyes
it's helping your eyes focus for you
achieve 20/20 vision or better
LASIK is the ideal procedure for you if you’re sick of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. This procedure involves modifying the shape of your cornea to ensure it bends light correctly towards the retina, thus restoring optimal vision. LASIK is an extremely safe and popular surgical procedure with a nearly perfect success rate. It can help you achieve 20/20 vision, liberating you from a lifetime of glasses and contacts.
LASIK is Your Path to Sharper Vision
Cataracts occur when protein formations accumulate in the lens of your eyes, leading to hazy or blurry vision. Cataract surgery involves removing cataracts and replacing the lens with artificial intraocular lens implants. Our ophthalmology practice uses femtosecond laser technology to ensure optimal precision with cataract surgery. We provide multifocal lens implants to restore perfect vision without myopia or hyperopia, so you can see all objects clearly, regardless of their distance from you.
Glaucoma is a condition wherein fluid accumulation in your eyes leads to increased pressure, damaging the optic nerve. Thanks to recent advancements, glaucoma surgeries are more controllable and safer than ever. We perform minimally invasive glaucoma surgery to ensure safe results with a minimal recovery period. However, our surgeons will select the ideal surgical technique based on your unique condition and lifestyle.
general eye health
West Coast Eye Institute takes a proactive approach to eye health. Instead of waiting for eye problems to occur, our Bakersfield eye doctors actively seek them out at the earliest stages. Most eye conditions are chronic, i.e., they worsen with time. That’s why we use advanced diagnostic tools to identify and treat eye conditions at the earliest stage, helping you maintain optimal eye health. We also provide eyeglasses and contact lenses and address all other vision concerns.
PEDIATRIC EYE CARE
Pediatric eye care consists of regular (annual) eye examinations for children to identify and correct vision problems at the earliest stage possible. You should ideally start bringing your children in for pediatric eye exams at the age of five because that’s when they start reading and learning at school. Vision problems can make children struggle while focusing on their reading materials, and it can actively impede their academic development. We provide comprehensive pediatric eye care to identify vision problems at the earliest stage possible to ensure optimal correction and treatment.
