About Meyer Izaac, O.D.

I am an optometrist in Encino, Ca. I love what I do and I like practicing on a very personal basis without feeling rushed so that I can provide the highest standards of optometric care and address my patient's needs in an orderly manner. I received my Bachelor of Science at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and my Doctor of Optometry at the Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, California where I graduated with honors. My services include comprehensive eye examinations for glasses and contact lenses, eye disease diagnosis and management including glaucoma, and refractive surgery consultation and co-management. I am licensed to prescribe therapeutic medications for the treatment and management of eye infections, glaucoma, inflammation, eye allergies and dry eyes. I have a particular interest in specialized contact lens fittings such as keratoconus, orthokeratology, post corneal transplants and post refractive surgeries as well as other hard to fit contact lens cases. I strive to achieve excellence in providing thorough patient examination and recommendations. http://www.visionsource-izaaceyes.com/ http://www.facebook.com/MeyerIzaacO.D http://twitter.com/#!/Izaaceyes .
