Our Eye Care Services

Over the years our eye doctors have treated thousands of patients who first came to our practice as children or pre-schoolers for their pediatric eye care and later continued to visit our eye care clinic for eye exams, contact lens fittings, binocular vision, Dry Eye treatment, vision correction consultations, and eye emergencies.

Our office was the beginning of the Baby Piper glasses phenomenon. Her smile when seeing her mother for the first time now has over 46 million views. It all started with an infant eye exam with Dr. Young in the Newport office. Be sure to have your child's eyes examined early!


Advanced Technologies

As a leading optometry practice in Northern Kentucky, our eye doctors are always up-to-date with the latest technologies and innovations. Our team uses the latest technologies in the eye care industry to offer accurate and painless diagnosis for eye conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.

Eye care experts at Opticare Vision Center use OCT Scans to scan your retina and assess your eyes for early signs of eye diseases. The images allow your eye doctor to detect and treat eye diseases that can cause blindness. We have the ability to do advanced cosmetic procedures in-house, including removing a bump on the eyelid. To sterilize the instruments use in such procedures, we invested in an autoclave which uses a steam refresher.

Eye Exams in Newport, KY

Many of our patients choose to visit us with their entire family. We specialize in pediatric eye health and vision exams and vision therapy as well as vision testing for adults. Our eye doctors take the time to explain the testing and treatment options at your visit. Even a routine eye exam at our professional eye care practice can detect early signs of eye conditions even before they affect your vision. You'll be surprised to learn how many cases of vision loss can be prevented by a simple eye examination performed once a year.

Call 859-491-1010 to schedule your eye exam at Opticare Vision Center today!


Contact Lenses and Eyewear Selection

We have over 900 designer frames, sunglasses and eyewear at our optical boutique in Newport. Our opticians have years of experience in helping our patients pick the right pair of glasses and stylish frames, that flatter their hair color, skin complexion, and face type.

We recently added Jimmy Choo frames to our collection.
Don't forget to purchase a pair of sunglasses! Your eyes need maximum protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. Polarized lenses offer 100% UV protection while providing you with a clear, glare-free vision outdoors.

Surgical Procedures

NEW: At our Newport office, we now offer the following procedures:

  • Treatment and removal of styes or chalazion
  • Removal of skin tags or small bumps around the eyes
  • Removal of moles around the eyes
  • Removal of problem eyelashes that grow toward the eye

For these procedures we use the Ellman Surgitron device - a blade-less technique called radio-frequency surgery. It uses radio waves to gently remove tissue, which minimizes bleeding and has less scarring.
