Preserving Vision and Enhancing Eye Health

At Sierra Eye Medical Group, we offer comprehensive eye care services aimed at preserving your vision and enhancing your eye health. Our commitment to excellence ensures that you receive thorough evaluations and personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs.

Difference Between a Comprehensive Eye Exam and Regular Eye Exam

While a regular eye exam focuses primarily on assessing your visual acuity and updating your prescription for glasses or contact lenses, a comprehensive eye exam goes a step further. 

During a comprehensive eye exam at Sierra Eye Medical Group, we not only evaluate your vision but also thoroughly assess the health of your eyes. This includes checking for signs of various eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other vision disorders. We also examine the structures of your eyes, including the retina, optic nerve, and cornea, to ensure optimal eye health.
