At OptiVision Eye Care we are committed to keeping your eyes healthy and happy. Our goal is to give you the best possible vision because healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role throughout our entire lives.
As young children, we develop the visual abilities needed to perform well in school. As teenagers, we use glasses and contact lenses to help keep our vision clear and then as young adults, we enjoy healthy eyes but may encounter visual stress and eventually have difficulty seeing clearly. When those visual changes affect our jobs and extra curricular activities, we seek laser vision correction to maintain a lens-free lifestyle. Cataracts enter the picture in our later years and as they compromise our way of life, we search for multifocal lens options to help us see near and far.
As you navigate through all of the visual changes in your life …. we’ll be here for you.
Our surgeons are leaders in laser vision correction and can deliver you superior LASIK results at the most affordable pricing in Wisconsin. We have a highly skilled team with a wealth of experience, allowing them to effectively correct both near and distance vision and eliminate the need for glasses in most cases.Learn More
For adolescents, glasses and contact lenses are the aid that provides a “bridge” between living with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. You’re too young to have a vision correction procedure because you haven’t reached ocular maturity. In most cases, glasses and contact lenses become a part of adolescence – like braces for your teeth!
Young adulthood is typically when we start to reach the point of relative ocular stability. A vision correction procedure such as LASIK for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism is now an option. Having LASIK in your 20’s and 30’s provides a significant cost savings and safety margin vs. sticking with glasses and contact lenses until age 45 – 50.
Something unique happens in our 40’s and 50’s. Presbyopia – and it affects everyone! The lens of the eye begins to lose the ability to focus and having trouble reading small print is the most notable symptom. Fortunately, there are a variety of vision correction procedures and “lifestyle options” for presbyopia. LASIK, PRK, and monovision are your best options.
For patients over 60, we recommend scheduling regular exams with one of our ophthalmologists. During your mature years, you may develop symptoms related to, but not limited to: Dry Eye, AMD, Glaucoma, DM Retinopathy, flashes and floaters, or retinal detachments. A thorough evaluation with one of our doctors will determine what procedure makes sense for you and your vision goals.

"I remember the days when I had to rush to a fire and the contacts would aggravate my eyes. LASIK gives me clear vision at all times and it pays for itself not in the long run, but the short run. Thank you Optivision for the gift of vision."

"I found some great looking Hugo Boss sunglasses at OptiVision’s Optical Shop in Appleton. I think they look pretty cool…(my girlfriend does too!)"
"I took an hour out of my day to have cataract surgery with the MACS HD lens and instantly had clear, bright vision. This is truly vision in high-def."
