About Eyeglasses & Lenses
Roseville, CA ophthalmologist Dr. Stephen Wilmarth is an experienced eye surgeon who has practiced LASIK and other vision correction procedures for many years, but we also welcome patients who prefer more traditional methods of correcting their eyesight. We carry a full range of contact lenses as well as a wide assortment of eyeglasses. The majority of lenses used in our glasses at Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center are ground in our Roseville laboratory, making fast service a hallmark of our optical department. Dr. Wilmarth and his staff pride themselves on providing quality, hands-on eye care that meets each patient’s needs, and they encourage everyone to schedule a consultation today.
What to Expect
Before Dr. Wilmarth can discuss options for correcting a patient's vision, it’s important to understand the issues causing eyesight problems. During the initial, complimentary consultation, Dr. Wilmarth will perform a full examination to identify conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, blurry vision, and other issues. Once the proper results have been attained, Dr. Wilmarth will discuss with each patient on which option is most suitable: contacts or traditional eyeglasses. From there, the patient can choose which lens and/or frame is right for them.

"I had a cataract in my left eye, Dr. Wilmarth performed laser surgery to remove it and replaced my lens with. Restora brand multi-focal lens. The results were amazing I had 20/30 vision the day of surgery and better than 20/20 within 1 month. I was so pleased with the results that I choose to have the lens in my right eye replaced with the same Lens! Same results as the left eye 20/20 vision...it's so nice to be DONE with glasses forever!! Dr. Wilmarth and his entire team are very professional, efficient, extremely competent and friendly. I am very confident in their abilities and recommend them for any eye surgery you may need."- L.H. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2018
"An easy and professional Lasik procedure! A great experience for a medical operation and you can't ask for better hands."- D.R. / Facebook / Jan 17, 2018
"Proud to say I can now see 20/15 [that's better than 20/20]! I must be dreaming; I have worn glasses since I was 5 years old and I feel like a brand new me. I came from a negative 6! Thank you Dr Wilmarth!"- J.R. / Facebook / Oct 20, 2017
"Fantastic experience throughout the pre-op, the procedure itself, and the couple of post-op appointments I've had so far. I went in for moderate to severe hyperopia (far-sightedness), so I would get heavy eye fatigue and lose focus when reading text or small print for any longer than a few minutes. After the Lasik, I now have 20/15 visual acuity and can read for hours without eye fatigue. While it is a significant financial outlay, I was not looking for the discount-chain "99 cent store" type of place to operate on my eyes; I was looking for the best of the best, and I can confidently say that is what you get if you go to Wilmarth Eye and Laser. Thank you again doc!Nick"- N.R. / Yelp / Oct 19, 2017
"I have known Dr. Wilmarth for years through our children's school. I had great vision my entire life but then it all changed when I reached my late 40s. Ultimately, I couldn't read up close or even drive very well without glasses. I didn't last long with the inconvenience of glasses. And, I had a terrible time trying to work with contact lenses. Since Dr. Wilmarth has such an excellent reputation in the area, I decided to schedule a consult.Dr. Wilmarth's staff is very experienced and they seem to really enjoy what they do. They were very kind to me and treated me as though I was important. I didn't research any other doctors for this procedure since my very best friend, who is extremely well-researched, told me she would never go to anyone other than Dr. Wilmarth. I had both eyes fixed for distance. My distance vision now is very sharp. I haven't reached for my glasses since the surgery three weeks ago. I have also found that if I back up my reading materials an extra 6 inches or so, I'm able to read magazines, newspapers, etc. much better even though I had my eyes fixed only for improving distance. I have only reached for my "cheater" reading glasses a few times since the surgery for very small print.I know a lot of people spend years considering this procedure. I'm super grateful for Dr. Wilmarth and I'm very happy to have my life back! Thank you!"- T.C. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2017
