Enjoying a lifetime of clear vision requires ongoing eye care to ensure the eyes are healthy and free of sight-threatening diseases. Regular checkups should be just as routine as regular visits to your dentist. At Atlantis Eyecare, Torrance residents will receive a thorough examination of all parts of the eye as well as a vision check. Early detection of sight threatening conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy is the first line of defense against these diseases.
General eye care should include:
- Annual eye exams with a licensed eye care professional
- Proper care when using contact lenses
- Using protective eyewear such as sunglasses and goggles
- Education on eye conditions including knowing the symptoms of serious conditions

Routine eye exams
Comprehensive eye exams are the standard of care at Atlantis Eyecare Torrance. The exam lasts approximately one hour unless you are receiving a pupil dilation test. The examination assesses your vision to determine if you need corrective lenses or if your prescription has changed. Additionally, the examination checks for the presence of any eye diseases.
Some of the tests you can expect during your examination are:
- Visual acuity tests – that chart with the big E on top
- Color blindness test – detects potential eye health problems as well as color blindness
- Retinoscopy – determines vision correction prescription
- Refraction – refines vision correction prescription
- Slit-lamp examination – detects cataracts, corneal ulcers, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy
- Glaucoma test – tests internal pressure of the eye
- Visual field test – checks for blind spots in vision
- Pupil dilation – allows the most thorough evaluation of internal health of the eye
Routine eye exams provide peace of mind that the eyes are healthy, and that the corrective lens prescription is accurate. In cases of eye health issues, routine eye exams prevent devastating sight loss issues in the vast majority of cases. Early detection is the key to successful treatment.
Who performs routine eye exams?
Your Torrance eye exam will be conducted by one of our licensed optometrists or ophthalmologists. Our professional staff is at the top of their field both in education and in experience. They can diagnose common and complex eye health conditions and provide treatment options. Vision correction is accurate and precise using the latest digital imaging equipment. Should eye surgery be needed, it is performed by one of our top tier ophthalmologists.
After your eye exam…
If you have no eye health issues and do not require a corrective lens prescription (or an update of an existing prescription) you will simply carry on with your day. Should you need a change in prescription, it will be provided immediately and you can choose to have it filled at Atlantis Eyecare in Torrance or at any other facility of your choice.
A caution on filling prescriptions at discount optical providers; there are many technical aspects of optical lenses that most people are unaware of. The experts at Atlantis Eyecare will only provide high quality optical lenses which have a proven track record of outstanding service.
For patients with eye health issues, your eye care professional will provide a treatment plan unique to your needs. You will be scheduled for more frequent examinations to monitor the progress of the treatment.
Our priority is to provide our patients with a comprehensive eye care facility staffed with top tier eye care professionals. Find out why Atlantis Eyecare Torrance is the destination of choice for those who demand only the best eye exams Torrance residents could ask for.
