Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our eye doctors:
Dr. Taylor Bladh has been a practicing optometrist for over thirty years. He began working in the eighties and has continually updated his license to the fullest extent of the optometric practice. In fact, Dr. Bladh is one of only five percent of optometrists who are licensed to treat Glaucoma in the state of California.
This means that Dr. Bladh runs a truly one stop optometric office. While we continue to have a great traditional office with excellent staff, a wide variety of fashionable eyewear, an in office edger to make glasses while you wait, a large inventory of contact lenses, a great sunglass selection, and expertise in orthokeratology, we can also help your family with many medical eye problems that you may encounter. Glaucoma, eye infections, dry eye, diabetic eye exams, LASIK co-management, cataract monitoring and surgery follow up can all be handled by Doctor Bladh.
He has served on numerous boards including Vistakon’s contact lens advisory board, and product development, was the original director over optometric projects for Xela AID a joint humanitarian aid nonprofit organization to the poor in Guatemala and traveled in the country to provide services. Dr. Bladh was part of the Nike Sensory Sports Training pilot and continues to develop his state of the art Sports Training Lab to this day. He is part of a research project teamed with UCR to study ADHD and continues to develop new training and therapies for this growing population. His office is a clerkship site for Western University of Heath Sciences College of Optometry where current optometry doctorate candidates receive hands-on training in a real-world clinical setting.
Eye care at its best.
The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
- Aetna Better Health
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- National Vision Administration (NVA)
- Blue Shield Of California
- Care Credit
- Envolve Benefits Options
- La Care
- Uhc Community Plan
- United Health Care
- VSP Premier
Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO, Davis Vision, EyeMed, Humana, March Vision, Medicare, MetLife, National Vision Administrators (NVA), OptiCare, SafeGuard, Superior Vision, Vision Benefits of America (VBA), VSP and many others.
