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.

"Dr. Wilmarth did my LASIK in January of 2019. They made it easy to go through. My results are excellent. I have recommended Dr. Wilmarth to my friends and colleagues whom ask why I no longer wear glasses."- C.P. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2019
"Thank you Dr Wilmarth! 3 years later and still 20/15 and no dry eyes and no headaches."- S.N. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2019
"My wife had 20/650 vision in one eye, and 20/750 in the other. We went in for evaluation, and Dr. Wilmarth recommended we start with an ICL procedure, and then "fine-tune" that with Lasik if necessary. His entire staff demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and kindness. Colette in particular was a joy to work with. Throughout the entire process the communication was clear, thorough, kind, and timely. My wife now has 20/20 vision and she couldn't be happier. If you are considering an eye procedure, this is the place to get it done. Everything from the professionalism of the staff, to the human kindness, to the results were 5/5 star. Bravo, team, bravo!"- D.C. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2019
