Dear Patients,

We are pleased to inform you that our office is now resuming our regular business hours for appointments. Of utmost importance to us is to continue to provide exceptional eye care in an environment that is safe for our patients and entire Monji Optometry team. We have taken great measures to prepare and implement COVID-19 safety protocols guided by resources from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the American Optometric Association (AOA) and the California Optometric Association (COA).

We want to share our new safety practices and let you know what you will expect when you come to our office.

  • Our front door will remain locked and only opened to those with appointments. To limit the number of people, all patient encounters will be by appointment, including glasses pickups, adjustments and repairs. Our schedule has been adjusted to allow spacing of people in any given area in our office.
  • We ask that adult patients arrive alone for an appointment. Minor patients may be accompanied by one adult.
  • If you are new to our office, to help us be prepared for your arrival we ask you to submit the “Patient History Form” found on our website under “Patient Forms” before your appointment. Please don’t forget to bring your latest eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
  • Our staff and patients are required to wear masks. When you arrive, you will be asked COVID-19 screening questions and your temperature will be taken by a non-contact thermometer at the door. If your temperature is over 100 degrees, we will reschedule your appointment.
  • Upon entering, you will be immediately directed to wash your hands. We are practicing safe distancing and ask that you mindfully keep a 6 foot distance between other patients.
  • Plexiglass barrier shields have been placed at our reception desk and tables for eyeglass frame selection to allow safe interaction between you and staff. Protection shields have also been outfitted on examination instruments.
  • Our staff has been trained on CDC procedures to diligently keep touched surfaces, instrumentation and overall office clean and disinfected following each patient and regularly throughout each day. This includes disinfecting eyeglass frames.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Best regards for your continued health and safety!

Comprehensive Eye Exams

To keep your eyes and vision in top shape, optometric experts recommend that yoEyeExam GreenButton 2u have a comprehensive eye exam performed yearly. In line with this, we encourage all of our patients to come in for regular eye evaluations in our Burbank, CA, office. It doesn’t matter how old you are, (from infants to golden-agers) or what physical condition you’re in, routine eye examinations Burbank are the best preventive care for your eyesight!

Many common ocular diseases and vision conditions may have no symptoms, especially at the early stages. Our gentle and thorough eye exams, provided by Dr. Gary Monji and Dr. Judy Ichiuji will inspect your inner eye tissues and retina for signs of any abnormalities. By identifying problems before they impact your vision, you’ll be able to begin treatment immediately, which greatly improves the success rate of preventing future vision loss. Pediatric eye examinations are particularly important, as they may detect a vision condition that could cause learning delays or difficulties in school.

Eyes also provide us with a look at your overall health. When we check your eyes in our Burbank clinic, we pay attention to indications of certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or hypertension. Our Burbank eye exams assess much more than just your vision. We care personally about the health of each and every patient we see!

How is our eye exam different from a vision screening?

Vision testing can be done anywhere and is often conducted by a volunteer or nurse. These tests may help identify a need for eyeglasses, yet they cannot detect signs of eye disease. When our experienced eye doctors examine your eyes, every part of your ocular health will be considered.

When you first arrive, we will sit down with you and discuss your medical history, including details about current medications, occupational hazards, family eye history and any vision problems you may have. Our friendly eye doctors, Dr. Monji and Dr. Ichiuji will get to know you and your unique needs.

We want you to have a pleasant experience, so your whole exam in Burbank will be comfortable, quick and painless. For ultimate efficiency, we have two full exam lanes and we utilize a range of diagnostic tools to examine your eyes in our Burbank office. Procedures generally include:

  • Visual acuity testing by reading a basic eye chart, along with an evaluation of your eye muscle mobility, color vision, peripheral vision, and depth perception.
  • Our office is equipped with Ultramatic RX Master Phoropter Refracting Instruments, known in the industry as the leading phoropter. We use this technology to help decide the lens power that you need for vision correction to give crisp eyesight.
  • We’ll conduct a cover test, during which you’ll need to cover one eye at a time while focusing on a small object in the distance. We’ll pay attention to your eye movements to detect any misalignment, even slight, that could disturb binocularity and lead to amblyopia (“lazy eye”).
  • Magnification equipment and bright lights will be used to help us assess the health of your external eyes, such as your cornea, conjunctiva, eyelids and surrounding tissue.
  • Dilating eye drops will be applied so that we can examine your retina and the tissues at the back of your eye. This is the most effective way to check for diseases, such as retinopathy and macular degeneration. To ensure high accuracy for our patients, we use the advanced Canon retinal camera cr1.
  • When necessary, we’ll map the curvature of your cornea with our quality Topcon kr1w Corneal Topographer, to diagnose conditions such as keratoconus or to achieve a proper contact lens fit.

At the end of your complete eye exam at Monji Optometry, we will meet with you to share and discuss the results. If treatment is required, we will work together with you to design the most suitable plan for your lifestyle, health condition, and visual requirements.
