Protect Your Eyesight with a Routine Eye Exam

Scheduling regular eye exams can not only detect vision problems before you are even aware that anything is wrong, they can also identify underlying health issues. General eye care is very important to your vision and overall wellbeing.

Saddleback Eye Medical Associates’ general eye care provides comprehensive eye examinations, diagnosis, treatment, and continued monitoring follow-up care for all types of conditions of the eye, eyelid, and vision. Through honest and sincere patient education, we will create the finest patient experience and provide exceptional patient care to Orange County, California patients. Since 1979, our board-certified doctors have provided patients with general eye exams and other ocular procedures.

What Is an ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor (MD) or a doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) who specializes in eye vision care. Ophthalmologists are trained to perform eye exams, diagnose and treat disease, prescribe medications, and perform eye surgery. They can also write prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses.

What is an optometrist?

Optometrists are Doctors of Optometry (OD) that also concentrate in primary care eye care. Optometrists are trained to prescribe glasses and contacts and diagnose and treat certain eye diseases. It is common for optometrists to work side by side with ophthalmologists to help co-manage with pre-op and post-op care and disease management.

What a Routine Eye Exam Will Look Like

A complete eye examination at our office does more than determine how clearly you see, what eye problems you are experiencing, or which lens prescription will give you the best possible vision. Our Orange County ophthalmologists will perform a number of vision tests to check the health and function of your eyes, using state of the art equipment.

A routine eye exam at Saddleback Eye Medical Associates will start with our team going thoroughly over your medical history and your family’s medical history, along with documenting any visual problems you may be experiencing. Contact lens examinations and fittings are also routinely done in our office by our contact lens specialist. During these appointments, we will thoroughly examine your eyes and then prescribe contact lenses based on your specific lifestyle needs.

Dr Gawk’s assistant took me on time and took my vision distance measurements quickly. Then, Dr Gawk came in and spent as much time as I needed to get my questions answered. I like the changes made in the office process a lot.

Tom Bergman

I am seeing both an ophthalmologist and an optometrist, Joson Moin. Both are absolutely fantastic. Not only are the doctors patient focused their staff is too. I've seen Joson for more than a decade. Moin for years. I plan to keep coming back to these doctors. The optician, Shi, is easy to work with, helpful and careful in choosing the frames and right lenses I need and with the right coatings.

I brought my 3 year old and 7 month old in for eye checkups. The front office staff were so nice and efficient. The nurse or assistant that took us back was so amazing with my 3 year old and made sure she understood what she was being asked. It had potential to be a terrible experiment but was absolutely wonderful. Dr. Weiss was so great with my kids also. We will definitely be back.
