Meet the Doctors

The Doctors at Community Eyecare Center care about not only your eyes, but your entire well-being. Each is certified by the Wisconsin Optometry Examining Board to practice at the most advanced level possible. This means not only expert prescribing of eyewear and contact lenses, but the ability to diagnose and treat ocular disease (dry eye, infections, glaucoma) and perform minor surgical procedures like removing foreign bodies from the eye. If you require more advanced care (like cataract surgery, LASIK, retinal surgery) we have strong relationships with specialists from Stevens Point to the Fox Valley and from Green Bay to Madison, and are well-equipped to co-manage such patients.
