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.

"The staff was extremely professional and exceeded every expectation I had. I’ve worn glasses for ten years and now have 20/10 vision. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has ever thought about getting the procedure done."- T.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2018
"I just recently had the ICL lens inserted into both of my eyes. I couldn't be happier. I have been in glasses/contacts since 6th grade (now in my 40's) and my vision was -10 and -11. Dr. Wilmarth was so knowledgable, professional and kind. He talked to me through the whole procedure and let me know what he was doing which calmed my nerves. His staff was incredible and Colleen was so quick to return my calls and answer my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Wilmarth and this is one of the best decisions I have made."- J.H. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018
"I was severely farsighted and have worn glasses since the second grade. At 71 Dr. Wilmarh recommended cataract lens replacement surgery using Toric lenses. I just left his office for a follow-up appointment and my vision is 20/20 in both eyes. No more glasses. He is amazing and makes you feel secure in his recommendation. My experience through the whole process was top notch - Dr. Wilmarth called the night before the procedure - the surgical center called before and after my procedure and follow-up with Dr. Wilmarth was immediate. His staff is so helpful. I can't thank him enough, this has changed my life."- G.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2019
"The BEST money I have ever spent. Doctor Wilmarth and all of his staff are excellent at answering any and all questions and sorting out any confusions you may have. Before my surgery my vision was 20/70 in one eye and 20/60 in the other. Now I'm seeing 20/15, which means I see as clearly at 20 feet as someone with "normal" vision sees at 15 feet. I highly recommend a visit to Doctor Wilmarth if you are tired of glasses and/or contacts."- G.W. / Google / Jun 15, 2018
"For anyone considering custom wavefront lasik, I highly recommend Dr. Wilmarth. Highly skilled and professional. From the first visit to post surgery, the process has been amazing.Went from terrible eyesight (legally blind) to 20/15 vision."- D.A. / Google / Jun 05, 2018
