Eye Exams, Glasses, Contacts, and More in Sierra Madre
Looking for a full-service optometrist near Sierra Madre? We’re just 10 minutes away and offer comprehensive eye exams, prescription eyeglasses, and sunglasses in the latest styles, contact lenses, and LASIK consultation and care.
Our comprehensive eye exams assess far more than the sharpness of your vision. In addition to glaucoma and cataract screening we examine and test for numerous eye health issues, many of which could soon develop into serious conditions.
So even if you don’t need glasses an annual checkup is generally recommended, more frequently for some patients. You should call for an appointment immediately if you notice any of the following changes in your eyesight: changes in how you perceive colors, difficulty reading up close or distant signs, difficulty tracking side-to-side motion, double vision, halos around light sources, sensitivity to glare at night, or a white spot or clouding in the pupil. Or any change in your vision for that matter.
We use all-digital technologies for an absolutely thorough exam that takes only 30-40 minutes. Contact us here.
Eye Glasses in Sierra Madre
Our selection of eyeglasses include practical safety wear as well as the latest styles in prescription glasses and sunglasses. Whatever your age or personal preferences you’ll choose from 20+ leading names and designer frames with lightweight lenses and the option of anti-reflective coatings. We also provide prescription safety, sports, and specialty sunglasses with options such as customized tint, mirrored lenses, and polarization. And whichever you select, we’ll fit them perfectly.
With contact lenses, there’s no frames limiting your field of vision, no fogging up, and no catching raindrops. Even if you were once told you couldn’t wear contacts today’s new materials may make that possible even if you have astigmatism or chronic dry eyes. To that end, we offer soft lenses, soft toric lenses, and rigid gas permeable lenses. Options for our patients include daily wear, disposable, extended wear, and monthly extended wear.
We have decades of experience and stay up to date on the latest technologies. We’ll guide you through the choices then provide expert contact lens fitting. In most cases, you’ll have your new contacts on the same day.

Sierra Madre Trivia
One of the mountain resorts of the late 19th century, Sierra Madre California was the site of the first Mount Wilson Observatory in 1889. The observatory was later moved, so that explains the trail but no telescope. The city is home to to the world’s largest flowering plant, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The Sierra Madre Wistaria was casually planted at a home in 1894 and now covers 1 acre and is estimated to weigh 250 tons. Finally, did you know that the city encompasses 69 traffic lights to help keep its 10,580 residents safe (2010 population)?
