Welcome to Carmel Mountain Vision Care:

Excellence in eye care since 1979

Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. 

Your Eye Health is important to us at Carmel Mountain Vision Care in San Diego

The eye doctors at Carmel Mountain Vision Care believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Doctors Cook, Reeder, Bytomski and Sandler know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as dry eye, glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up. 

We specialize in Corneal Reshaping Therapy (CRT) and Myopia Control. Dr Reeder is proud to be an FDA Clinical study investigator for this exciting treatment. Our clinic now has over 900 patients from 5 to 67 years old successfully wearing CRT since July of 2000.

Q&A with Our Optometric Team

Our Optometrists Answer Your Eyecare Questions

1. What makes the SynergEyes multifocal contact lenses better than other contacts? 

Dr. Earl Sandler Responds:

SynergEyes are hybrid contact lenses. They are hard in the center, providing crisp optics, while having a soft skirt on the outer part for optimal comfort and stability. They are the best solution for patients who need multifocals or have an astigmatism because they are comfortable and provide excellent vision. Each contact is fit specifically for the eye, so they need to be fitted by an experienced optometrist.

Dr. Cook is very personable and not rushed. He takes time to get the Rx lenses correct and compares to the previous Rx.

Lisa was an amazing help in fitting the new frames. She was cheerful and pleasant. She even waited 5 minutes so my wife could drive over for final approval on the new frames.

My visit to Carmel Mountain Vision was fantastic as usual. Joel took the time to ensure that everything was looked at, that the prescription was accurate to 0.0000001 and also gave me the latest and greatest in lenses and in lens cleaning. In other words, everything that a doctor visit should be.

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The associate staff people were very efficient and friendly. They explained every test to let me know what it was for. Dr. Cook was very nice and obviously had great credentials and skill. The staff members in the area for ordering glasses and contacts were also very helpful. Overall, it was a very nice experience and I would recommend this office to anyone in that area who needs vision care.
