Office Safety & Scheduling Procedures Update

IMPORTANT: Your safety and health is our highest priority. Our staff members are working diligently to maintain a safe environment for all our patients who are receiving care at our office:

  1. If you have a sight or life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or contact your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. Due to the large number of patients returning to our office since the pandemic, we had to update our scheduling procedures so that we can ensure the safety of all our patients and staff. Typically, we are able to reply to most inquiries within about 1-2 business days.
  3. If you are new to our office, to streamline the scheduling process, please kindly email us at odtong@bxbsecure.com with the patient’s name, age, who referred you, and a 1-2 sentence description of your main concerns. All services are by appointment only. 
  4. If you have been to our office before, please email us at odtong@bxbsecure.com, text us at (626) 565-3534, or leave a voice message at (626) 578-9685 if you have any questions. Typically, we are able to reply to most inquiries within about 1-2 business days.
  5. COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:
    1. If within the past 10-14 days you have experienced any symptoms (other than the COVID vaccine reactions), been in close contact with anyone with COVID, traveled internationally or out-of-state, or been on an airplane, please inform our staff immediately.

Specialty Eye Tests, Therapy, and/or Lenses for Special Needs Patients of All Ages

Special Needs Exam

Our eye doctors are very experienced in the evaluation and treatment of the visual health and function of all types of special needs patients, including pediatric, geriatric, developmental delays, and nonverbal.

Special Needs Eye Exam / Vision Tests

Individuals with special needs and/or developmental delays require special testing of their eye health and visual function. We are experienced in comprehensive eye exams and effective treatments for special needs and/or nonverbal patients, including infants, children and adults with developmental delays and/or traumatic brain injury.

Special Prescriptions and/or Prism Lenses for Autism, Brain Injury, and other Special Needs Individuals

We are experienced in the total vision care of special needs individuals who typically need much more than a standard 20-20 eyeglasses prescription. We prescribe lenses that go beyond 20-20 eyesight correction and are fine-tuned to the total vision of the special needs patient. Our customized eyeglasses prescriptions can be life-changing.

Developmental Vision Care for Special Needs

In so many cases, the right prescription is significant, but so much more improvement and success is possible for the special needs patient with our developmental optometric care and treatments, such as Vision Therapy. Call us to find out about our lenses and/or developmental eye care and therapy programs for special needs patients. Our practice has a special committment to providing extraordinary vision care for special needs patients, , including the developmentally delayed!
