Our eye doctors accept more types of vision insurance than other Wauwatosa optometrists. You can get a free consultation with a vision care specialist to learn more about our affordable eye care options.

Local eye doctor for diabetes-related eye care

Our eye doctors see many patients who have diabetes. Comprehensive eye exams at Wisconsin Vision are always performed by an optometrist (not a technician) and include dilation. Learn more about eye exams for people with diabetes and book your exam online.

When to see an eye doctor for dry eyes

Dry eyes can be temporarily caused by air travel, allergies, prolonged screen time, and other circumstances. Getting older, changes in hormones, digital device use, and many common medications can also contribute to dry eye symptoms. 

Chronic dry eye puts you at a higher risk of infections and damage to the corneal surface. When your dry eye lasts longer than a couple of weeks, eye drops stop working, or other symptoms develop, it’s time to book an eye exam.

Choosing the right eye doctor for contact lenses

Many factors can make finding comfortable contact lenses difficult. Conditions such as keratoconus, astigmatism, or dry eye affect the surface of the eye (and how contacts fit). Individual sensitivities and preferences can also make finding the right contacts more challenging.

Finding the best eye doctor for contact lenses is a crucial part of finding your best-fitting contacts. Our eye doctors conduct thorough contact lens exams and fittings to determine the optimal contacts for your unique eyes. We’ll patiently work with you until you’re seeing clearly and comfortably with your contact lenses.

Eye and vision care for children with autism

Quality vision care is especially important for individuals with autism and their families. Each patient’s situation is unique. In some cases, an underlying vision problem can contribute to behaviors such as poor eye contact, looking with the sides of the eye, extreme light sensitivity, or hand-flicking movements near the face. Proper vision assessment, vision correction, and/or vision therapy can significantly benefit people living with autism. Our eye doctors provide comprehensive eye health evaluation and vision testing for adult and pediatric patients on the spectrum.

Wauwatosa eye doctor for senior eye care

Keeping up with annual eye exams is especially important for adults aged 60 and older. There are many ways aging affects the eyes and vision. We make it easy to access affordable eye care with discounted pricing for seniors and senior eye exams at all our locations. Our eye doctors take Medicare, which may cover certain types of eye exams when you meet the criteria.
