A few questions your

Torrance Ophthalmologist

will ask you:

• Is your vision blurry or foggy?
• Do colors appear dull or muted?
• Are your glasses no longer working?
• Does sunlight or other light seem overly bright or glaring?
• Do you have decreased night vision or see halos around lights?



Why your Torrance eye doctor is a favorite: “You’re out of surgery in less than an hour with very little pain”

If you experience one or more of the symptoms listed above, you may have cataracts, a clouding of your eye’s natural lens. Cataracts are the leading cause of visual loss in people 55 and over. The good news is that most people are very surprised to learn that cataract surgery is easy and relatively pain free! At the Hecht Eye Institute, you have three convenient locations and an experienced eye doctor to bring your eyesight back to clarity.

Torrance ophthalmologist helped Bill stay in his profession

Bill has been in the newspaper business since he graduated college in 1979. As he got older, he found that his glasses couldn’t keep up with his job. He moved to blogging five years ago and found that the intensity of looking at a screen all day was hurting his already compromised eyesight.

Torrance eye doctor offers cutting edge eye correction surgery


“I was thinking about going into some other kind of work because the strain on my eyes was simply too great. My wife recommended me to her eye doctor in Torrance, Dr. Hecht. I had never even considered surgery to correct my eyesight. But after he walked me through the process, I knew it would be the way to stay in the profession I love. He performed LASIK surgery. I can barely put it into words but having nearly 20/20 eyesight has completely changed my view of things, literally.”
