Our goal is to provide top quality, life-long care for you, our patient, ensuring you See Better.. Live Better.

Our History

Dr. Hawks started the practice by opening offices in both Overland Park and Gardner in 1974. For almost 50 years, our goal is still to provide professional service with compassion and integrity. We are dedicated to providing high-quality optometry services in a professional, friendly, and comfortable environment.

Emergency Eye Care

We know that life doesn’t stop when the office closes. That is why our optometrists are available on-call 24 hours a day for our current patients. Call either office and follow the prompts to leave a message for the on-call doctor; and the doctor will call you back right away. If your emergency is life threatening, please call 911.
