At Gary L. Etting, O.D., FCOVD, Dr. Gary Etting and our entire optometry team are committed to providing advanced vision care in a professional and comfortable environment. As optometrists, our primary eye care service includes a complete eye exam that analyzes eye health and vision function. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, Dr. Etting and our team of optometry professionals provide testing for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Our Encino optometrists also offer glasses, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative care.
Dr. Etting and the Gary L. Etting, O.D., FCOVD team care about your health, so we take even simple routine eye exams very seriously. During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our patients will receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, several assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. If additional testing is needed, our optometrists will thoroughly discuss those needs that may be required in order to fully diagnose an eye condition, or to identify the foundation of an eye disease.
Not sure that glasses are for you? Ask our Encino staff about contact lenses. Advances in the field of optometry have produced a variety of different types of contact lenses with a wide range of benefits. Some examples of these lenses are rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement. We will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you, and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions you may have.
Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses and contacts, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Gary L. Etting, O.D., FCOVD, Dr. Etting provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call our Encino office today at (818) 344-3937 so we can schedule an examination to see if you are a candidate for LASIK.
