Your local Eye Doctor and Optometrist near you in Harlan; we truly care about the health of your eyes, and offer local vision care to all family members.

Many eye diseases can be quickly and easily diagnosed during a Comprehensive eye exam, Pediatric eye exam or Contact lens eye exam. If you were diagnosed with an eye disease, such as Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, or Dry eye, you may be overwhelmed by the diagnosis and confused about what happens next. Will you need medications or surgery – now or in the future? Is LASIK eye and vision surgery an option for you ? Or you just need help with conjunctivitis, Red eyes or even Twichy eye, our Harlan eye doctor is always available and ready to answer your questions about eye disease and Contact lenses.



Comprehensive—or rather—thorough is the operative word here. Eye exams check not only your visual acuity but also evaluate for any eye diseases that may be lurking under the surface to prevent any problems from arising by catching them early on. Undergoing regular eye exams is the first step in being proactive about your vision health regardless of your age or physical health.

At Harlan Vision Clinic, we aim to go beyond 20/20 and to help you see clearly far into the future!
