At Signature Optometry, we are dedicated to helping you with all of your eye care needs. However, we are particularly concerned with your emergency needs, as we know it can be scary and majorly disruptive to have something suddenly go wrong with your eyes, vision, or corrective eye-wear. If you experience an emergency eye problem, don’t hesitate to call us. We can generally get you in for a same-day appointment.

Our optometrist and staff are completely trained and capable of handling most eye and vision emergencies in-house. We can generally take care of any issues, prescribe any medications, and assist you with your eye-wear on-the-spot. Should your problem require a specialist, we will assist you in choosing and contacting one right away so you get the help you need.

Just call 559.432.0606 for immediate assistance. And to confirm your medical insurance coverage at our offices.
