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.

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.
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.
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.
Our General Eye Care Service is comprised of eye care providers who are qualified to diagnose, treat and monitor follow-up of vision problems. Our ophthalmologists are also medically trained to perform surgical and laser procedures for all eye conditions that may require them.
Our eye doctors provide diagnosis, treatment and monitoring follow-up care in these and other eye and vision conditions:
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.
