Sun Valley Eye Care has been in operation since December 2005. Drs. Chantelle Clarizio and Loc Pham have been practicing in Arizona for over 22 years each. We both graduated with a degree from a University of California school in the health sciences. (Dr. Clarizio at UC riverside, Dr. Pham at UC Irvine) We furthered that education by receiving a doctorate degree from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1998.
Our vision was a simple one. We wanted to be able to work in our own environment not pressured by outside interests. Our desire is to listen and understand your case before we implement a plan of action. You have a right to understand your healthcare needs and illnesses and we will explain them in a manner that it is easy to understand.
We only schedule appointments every 30-60 minutes. We cannot do an exam in 10 minutes and applaud those who can.
Our methods to measuring your Rx are meticulous. Like a carpenter who measures twice, but only cuts once we like to follow the same creed. We analyze your current Rx, take new measurements, and evaluate the results to see if a change is warranted.
We will evaluate the health of your eyes and discuss management strategies that will help protect/preserve its integrity for years to come.
We welcome all new patients. Our best source of new patients is always from referrals.
We are local residents of the community and always try to support local businesses and keep tax dollars within our city. By doing this, we can all help keeps jobs secure and local. Your support means everything to us.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Routine eye exams are important, regardless of your age or physical health. During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
If you decide to opt for contact lens wear, it is very important that the lenses fit properly and comfortably and that you understand contact lens safety and hygiene. A contact lens exam will include both a comprehensive eye exam to check your overall eye health, your general vision prescription and then a contact lens consultation and measurement to determine the proper lens fit.
Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own. Here's a short list of common eye conditions we treat, such as astigmatism, dry eye syndrome and presbyopia. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don’t look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your doctor.
We use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina.
Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, is the use of specially designed and fitted contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea to improve vision. It’s like orthodontics for your eyes and the treatment is often compared to dental braces.
