Individualized Eye Exams
Dr. Jesse A. Camen offers comprehensive exams that cover all aspects of your vision and eye health. She will start with questions regarding your daily life and any symptoms you may be experiencing at home or at work. She will also take record of your vision, medications, and overall health.
Dry Eye Therapy
To keep your eyes healthy, you need to have tears to provide moisture and lubrication. This is not only for your comfort, but it helps with your vision. Tears are secreted by glands around your eyes. When you do not make enough tears, you have a condition called dry eyes.
Many things can cause eye infections, so it is important to determine the cause before you start to treat your infected eye.
The most common infection we see is conjunctivitis caused by an adenovirus (the common cold). There are other types of bacteria and viruses that can cause eye infections. Fungal infections are also seen, though they are not as common.
Great service and very welcoming from the first time I walked in. Knowledgeable about her profession and walks you along with every step of the process to feel secure about your service. Definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an eye exam. Great location as well. Thank you Dr. Camen.
My wife and I went in to get new glasses, and have our eyes checked. Jesse Camen was thorough, professional, friendly, patient, and completely up-to-date with the latest medical knowledge. A total pro! Plus, it's worth it just to meet her darling dog, Slater.
Dr. Camen is amazing! She dilated my eye and found a spot the retinal specialists office couldn’t even find until I told them where she found it! She’s so thorough and kind and the space is perfect for bird rock!
The optician was fabulous!! A delightful gentleman that picked out numerous frames that would fit my face and my style. Thank you
I took my daughter for an eye exam. Dr. Camen was amazing and so patient and kind with an energetic 7 year old! She was able to diagnose an eye issue I was concerned about and gave my daughter some eye exercises (that have been effective!) to combat the issue.
Dr. Camen is awesome! She is a wealth of knowledge, personable and professional. I was totally at ease during my eye exam. She worked with me on the fees for the exams she performed, and I will be changing my current insurance during open season. I'm actually looking forward to my next exam. I will certainly be recommending her. As a fellow veteran I appreciate her Naval service.
I nightly recommend Dr. Camen! She took very good care of me and made me feel very at ease. I think she’s one of the best in San Diego. Super thorough and very professional. You will love her :)
Dr. Camen is a newer Optometrist in La Jolla however not new to the industry. In fact, she is one of the more talented and experienced Optometrist in La Jolla not to mention an awesome person. I've seen her over 2 times now and I'm impressed each time. I highly recommend her!
Such a great experience! Both the exam and glass buying!!
We actually followed Dr. Camen from her old practice and it's totally worth the drive for us. She is just absolutely wonderful, straight-forward, and friendly. I love how she works with adults and kids, makes it so easy to get everyone seen! My son has an odd prescription and I wouldn't trust anyone else except Dr. Camen to get it right.The office is really, really nice. Very comfortable and just two blocks from the beach! We like to walk down to the ocean while we're waiting for the dilation process; what other optometrist can tell you to go watch the surfers while you wait? :D
Customers for life are forged with excellent service, professional skills and a true interest in the customer's needs and concerns. Dr Jesse covers all of those with flying colors and I am very happy to have met her (and Slater). Looking forward to many years of the same top quality visits I have had in the recent past.
A huge fan of Dr Jesse Camen, she has been treating me for years and is a expert in her industry. She's knowledgeable, kind, and caring about her patients. She always goes above and beyond to make sure I am taken care of when I'm in to see her. Offices provide state of the art technology, Jesse provides individual eye exams customized to my personal needs. She was able to re asses my eye needs and condition with a easy and painless solution quickly and easily. If you are looking for a new optometrist look no further and make a appointment. Best decision I've made.
