Dr. Fred Fuerst founded the first EYEcenter in Sacramento in 1960. Back then Dr. Fred imagined a mix of quality care, family values, and compassion for his practice. This culture he envisioned still thrives at EYEcenter today: a combination of nurturing care and advanced methods, respectful of our roots yet continually envisioning the future. Here in his own words, Dr. Fred describes his early hopes for EYEcenter. We’re so proud of where we’ve come from and look forward to continuing to serve our community with the same unwavering commitment to helping people see their best.
