Optometry in Wauwatosa

Steck Eye Care offers Wauwatosa a complete clinical package in eye care, combining years of experience with state-of-the-art equipment. Rather than settle for Stone Age practices, detect any ocular health issues you may face with our digital retinal imaging. Our practice educates our patients around eye problems such as glaucoma or macular degeneration through an inside look at optometry. In an effort to be as transparent as possible, we want you to clearly see and understand your eye care.

Your child's eye care affects their quality of life as they age. Our center in Wauwatosa not only delivers all the tests mandated by the state's Child Vision Initiative, but we are trained to give a higher level of testing than traditional school screenings. Our licensed optometrists are proud to work with Lens Crafters to bring both you and your child the best ophthalmology in the business. 

Eye Care & General Health – Are they related?

Eye health can reflect broader health issues as they're windows to what's going on underneath. According to the medical journal Neurology, symptoms of serious conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol can actually show in your eyes. An ophthalmologist or optometrist isn't only here to treat specific eye care conditions. Regular optometry visits to our Wauwatosa clinic can help detect other underlying health issues. During an eye exam, your doctor may refer to broader medical history to discern any warning signs of deeper health problems. We're happy to then refer you to a trusted outside physician to continue your care.

At Steck Eye Care, we understand the eyes are fascinating organs that deserve only the best treatment. We encourage you to stick to regular eye exams not only for eye care but to improve the overall quality of life. Stay ahead of the game and visit our clinic in Wauwatosa today!

    I've been going to these Drs for a number of years and won't even consider going anywhere else. They are both very knowledgeable in eyecare and are genuinely nice people. Hopefully, they won't ever retire. If they do, I'll go blind.
