Certain eye diseases, like closed-angle glaucoma and wet macular degeneration, can cause sudden emergency symptoms like eye pain, redness, nausea, headaches, flashes and floaters, or even sudden vision loss.

I have been a patient of the Alameda Optometrist Group for years and have been extremely pleased. Thank you Dr Shelly Sheppard and staff for all your good care. Thank you Jan for always being so patient with me on deciding what frames look better. I highly recommend your office to anyone with optometric needs.
Dr. Sheppard was very thorough in the examination and her staff was very helpful. There was three of us and they took care of all three of us with the same thoughtfulness and made sure we were comfortable. I would highly recommend Alameda optometrist to my family and friends.
Nothing but the best every time I come here thank you all so much I love my glasses.
