The Eye Center has served Northwest Arkansas for over thirty-five years. With a team of ophthalmologists, optometrists, licensed opticians, and certified ophthalmic assistants, we are confident that we can take care of your eyecare needs. Our services include: your child’s first eye exam, solving your dry eye problems, helping you choose those new, stylish glasses, or getting you out of contacts and glasses through Lasik or advanced cataract surgery. Our team of doctors work together to serve you and your family. Typically your care is coordinated by an optometrist, and our ophthalmologists support them in your care with any surgical intervention needed, such as glaucoma intervention, cataract surgery, Lasik surgery or injections. Our optometrists are some of the most highly trained in the area, with three of them having more than twenty years’ experience. We are honored to serve you and your family and promise to guide you through the best vision for your life. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please give us a call at 442-2020, or you can visit us on our website, which is eyecenternwa.com.

EVO ICL is an implantable Collamer Lens that delivers sharp, clear vision at a distance as an alternative to glasses and contact lenses. It is a great treatment option for patients who have moderate to severe nearsightedness and/or astigmatism or have been told they are not a candidate for LASIK.
RLE – Refractive Lens Exchange
RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange) is a vision correction technique for patients who are over the age of 45 and are frustrated with their reading glasses and/or bifocals. The procedure is essentially the same as cataract surgery, but is considered elective/cosmetic since it is before cataracts develop. RLE is also known as the Lifestyle Lens because it allows patients to return to many of the activities they enjoy without glasses and contacts permanently.
Choosing to have cataract surgery is an important decision. But equally important is talking with your doctor and deciding which type of intraocular lens (IOL) is the best choice to correct you own unique visual condition(s), including cataracts, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
Optical Glasses and Contact Lenses
Serving your optical needs is our top priority at The Eye Center Optical. Our staff includes licensed and certified opticians with years of education, hands-on experience and pride in their work. With over 60 years of combined optical experience, our opticians are highly skilled in the selection of eyewear for function and fashion.
Comprehensive Eye Care
Regular eye exams are essential for your vision health, of course, but they can also be an important part of your overall health and wellness.
Your exam may include some or all of the following exams:
Visual Acuity Test
Visual Field Test
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Dilated Fundus Examination
Dry Eye Clinic
At The Eye Center, we have a Dry Clinic just for our patients who suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome. Since there are so many possible causes and contributing factors, we work with each patient individually to identify the best options for treatment.
We vow to start your treatment with the most simple and inexpensive option. Some options are available without a prescription, including warm compresses, generic artificial tears, or drinking more water.
You don’t have to live with the constant discomfort of dry eye, thanks to a new FDA-cleared electronic treatment called LipiFlow®. (The Eye Center is the first area clinic approved for this treatment.)
LipiFlow goes beyond treating symptoms and actually treats a disease called MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction), the root cause of most dry eye.
