Our approach is individual! We start by listening to you.
We ask ourselves how can we help our patients see their best. At Dr. Newman Optometry and Vision Therapy of Beverly Hills, we know it is important that the doctor not only examine but also educate the patient on what we do and hope to accomplish. Dr. Newman and her staff follow this credo, knowing patient education will help patients learn preventative measures and become better equipped to care for their eyes.
The heart of our profession is our patients. We know that every patient has different needs and concerns. At Dr. Newman Optometry and Vision Therapy, it’s our responsibility to know and understand these concerns, and we take the time necessary to provide Comprehensive Personal Eye Exams in order to ensure our patients achieve optimal vision and ocular health.

We diagnose chronic diseases. The eyes are windows to the rest of the human body, indicating chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, multiple sclerosis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. It’s not unusual for us to be the first health care professional to spot developing systemic conditions during routine eye exams. We also diagnose and treat eye infections and conjunctivitis.Age-Related Macular Degeneration evaluation and treatment: Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a complex disease that has both genetic and environmental components. Long-term smoking substantially increases the risk for AMD, just as it does for formation of cataracts.
Annual Eye Exams
We encourage annual eye exams for early detection of potential concerns along with continued eye health. The key to the best and most effective eye care treatment is identifying issues and treating them before they become problematic. We utilize modern technology and assessments to identify early stage eye problems, and we have the eye care expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to meet needs for eyeglasses, contacts, specialty fit contacts, vision therapy, sports therapy and general eye health examinations.
Children should have their first eye exam by the time they are six months old to identify potential problems that occur soon after birth. Their eyes should be examined again by age three and before first grade to make sure learning activities will not be affected by vision problems. Binocular Vision Exam by a Developmental Optometrist is highly recommended for children who have challenges and difficulties in school. Not all optometrists provide in-depth testing for developmental, binocular, and functional vision problems and related treatment such as Vision Therapy. Dr. Newman is a Developmental Optometrist who specializes in testing and treatment of binocular vision disorders that can cause reading and learning difficulties in children as well as adults. Request an evaluation for a Comprehensive Eye Exam to assess the health your eyes and/or request an evaluation for a Binocular Vision Exam to detect the presence of learning-related vision problems.
