Welcome to Wichita Optometry

Healthy eyes are essential for maintaining good vision and preventing both common and uncommon eye diseases. When the need arises to see an eye doctor, the first question new patients often ask is, “Where is there an eye doctor near me?”



Life can only be seen through clear eyes. At Wichita Optometry in Wichita, KS, we offer patients several alternatives to enhance their vision. While some patients are fond of eyeglasses, others prefer contacts.

How Can Optometry Care Help Improve My Vision?

Optometrists provide essential eye care solutions to patients with and without vision problems. We are the first line of defense against eye diseases. Our expertise allows us to examine, diagnose, treat, and manage an array of disorders of the eyes. It is through our intervention that many diseases are caught and treated in their early stages of development. One of the worst scenarios is not seeing an optometrist and dismissing what seems like unimportant or minor symptoms. Even the slightest irritation is cause enough to seek the opinion of a skilled optometrist.

The types of symptoms that patients should be concerned about are the ones that affect their vision. We treat:

  • Dry eyes: At Wichita Optometry we specialize in treating dry eyes and their symptoms. Dry eyes include watery, red eyes that feel scratchy and uncomfortable. Dry eyes are caused by several factors, including age, illness, eye strain, allergies, diabetes, insufficient tear production, or hormonal changes.
  • Cataracts: Cataracts make your vision cloudy and usually develop slowly over time. Cataract symptoms include blurry vision, which can get worse.
  • Eye allergies: Depending on what season your eyes are exposed to, your eyes might turn red, look tired, or have discharge. This is normal for allergies. However, some allergies might not be so simple.
  • Glaucoma: Glaucoma is an eye disease that affects vision and optic nerves. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness, particularly in people over 60 years of age.

If you need an eye exam or are experiencing problems with your vision, give Wichita Optometry a call at (316) 942-7496. You can also go online for a virtual tour of our onsite location before your scheduled appointment.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Personal & professional staff, state of the art testing and a huge selection of glasses! I suffer from dry eye and have experienced an amazing improvement since being diagnosed and have begun the prescribed treatment."
    Susie W.
  • "Each time has been such a positive experience. Everyone is friendly and the whole office is run very efficiently. Great care for our whole family and we are so grateful for the entire team!"
    Bri D.
  • "I am grateful for the expertise in vision health, diagnosis, and corrective measures offered by the optometry team at Wichita Optometry. Other optometrists had done their best to prescribe changes in lenses but Wichita Optometry diagnosed the real, prevailing issue and began rigorous vision therapy to correct the problem. I didn't know there was such a thing as VT! I feel very well taken care of as my vision improves here at Wichita Optometry."
    S. Jeannette
  • "The employees were professional. Nice clean facility. Appointment was smooth and did not take long at all. I recommend anyone to take your family to Wichita optometry"
    Andrew T.
  • "I can't even recall the last time I had to get an eye exam, but I had to today due to a driver's license renewal. I had never been to this location/business before. The staff was amazing. I have worked with medical staff extensively, both as a client and as a clinician. These were perhaps the kindest and most pleasant providers I think I have ever been around. My eyes are (fortunately) still in good shape. I was not planning on keeping any future appointments they might have made, simply because I don't feel they are terribly necessary. However, between the Optometrist's/all caregiver's pleasant natures and (God forbid) even the front desk being respectful, I kept my appointment for a year from now. I don't want to lose an office with such wonderful clinicians. I am pleasantly surprised. Great place."
