Monovision

When we’re young and have normal vision our eyes are in perfect condition. They can focus up close on objects as close as their nose and they can instantly switch that focus to a far away object. This is known as accommodation. Unfortunately, accommodation becomes, well, less accommodating as we get older. With every passing… Read More »


Nearsighted or Farsighted or Astigmatism?

Some people are born with great eyesight and it stays that way until presbyopia and its difficulty with close focus encroaches after their 40th birthday. Others develop either nearsightedness or farsightedness as they progress as children. And other people have astigmatism, which creates some degree of blurry vision at multiple distances.

Dear Friends,

We at Central Valley Eye hope you and your families are well. During these uncertain times, we are taking all necessary precautions to keep patients and staff healthy as COVID-19 infections continue to rise. We are following CDC and American Academy of Ophthalmology guidelines, including extra diligent cleaning, and disinfecting around the office. Our waiting rooms have been reconfigured to allow more distance between chairs, and we are turning away all non-urgent patients who are symptomatic with cough or fever.

In keeping with government and institutional guidelines, as well as to promote the practice of "staying at home," we are implementing new restrictions. Starting March 20th, we will be limiting our clinic only to patients with eye conditions that could permanently threaten vision if not addressed within two months. This means that many appointments will need to be rescheduled. Additionally, some of our office locations may be closed on certain days, as patient volumes are expected to decrease significantly. If you are unsure whether to come in for your visit, please call us.

The clinic is also establishing a telemedicine service to address eye problems that are less urgent, which can be managed over the phone by a physician.

The doctors at Central Valley Eye will not be performing any non-urgent surgeries until further notice. Our surgery coordinators will be contacting patients to reschedule the surgeries that need to be postponed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 209-952-3700.

Warmest regards,

Brandy Simpson
Practice Manager
Central Valley Eye Medical Group, Inc.
