Our Story

Here at The EyeDoctors, we are proud of our Kansas heritage and how we have grown with the communities around us. Our practice beganĀ in 1969 in Manhattan. Shortly after, in 1970, we opened our second office location in Council Grove. From the beginning, we have been committed to putting our patients first and doing all that we can to ensure that they have their best vision possible as well receiving exceptional ocular healthcare.
At The EyeDoctors, we love being Optometrists. Your Vision is always Our FocusDr. Brian Horsch, CEO
This commitment has been rewarded by our patients, as they have spread the word and allowed us to spread our reach. Offices in Topeka, Lawrence, and Olathe were added over the years. In the past 6 years alone, we have more than doubled the number of our locations in Northeast Kansas. However, this growth hasn’t compromisedĀ our focus on what is important – personalized vision care for each individual.

As a business, we strive to provide outstanding professional optometric care while offering you the latest advancements in vision technology. We hope to show you exceptional value and convenience throughout your visit, all within a comfortable environment.

At The EyeDoctors, we are proud of the services and products we provide to our patients. We stand behind these products with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Giving back to our local communities is also an important value to us. To reflect this, we began the Community Vision Fund in 1984. The Community Vision Fund stepped in to fill a gap for people who had no financial means for eyecare and yet didn’t meet the criteria for Title XIX (welfare) status. Over the course of 30 years The EyeDoctors donated nearly $200,000 in goods and services. Beginning in 2014, we were able to roll our Community Vision Fund into a larger initiative – The Gift of Glasses. Through the Gift of Glasses, we are able to donate one pair of glasses for every pair purchased at The EyeDoctors. Donations are made locally, regionally, and internationally. The Gift of Glasses is only possible because of the loyalty and generosity of our patients, and we are grateful for you!

Thank you for considering us to be your eyecare providers. We’ll hope to see you in of our locations soon!
