KU Eye Optometry and Optical

 KU Eye and Optical Shop Sign

KU Eye Center's second full-service optical shop and two-exam room clinic opened March 15th.  Located in Miller Suite 1011, it is cleverly named the KU Eye Center-Miller Clinic.

KU Optical accepts VSP, Superior Vision plans and Kansas Medicaid.  For those who do not have those insurance plans, KU Optical offers a 15% discount. There is also a 30% discount for The University of Kansas Hospital, The University of Kansas Physicians and the University of Kansas Medical Center employees who have already used their insurance allowance or do not use insurance. Tip: A spare pair of glasses is always a good idea, so you could purchase a second pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses at 30% off.  For those who don't wear a prescription, we sell non-prescription frames and lenses too.

A valid prescription (no older than one year) is required to order prescription glasses or contact lenses.

In addition to shopping for eyeglasses and contact lenses, patients may schedule appointments with one of our two optometrists or an ophthalmologist specializing in cornea or oculoplastics.   Routine eye exams, refractive eye exams, minor cosmetic procedures and evaluations for LASIK, cataracts and corneal transplants will be available. 

LASIK evaluations are free and the same employees receive a 20% discount on the surgeon's fees.

Cosmetic evaluations for eyebrow, eyelid or face lift are also free of charge and a 10% employee discount on the surgeon's fee for procedures is also offered. Botox® and Restylane® injections, laser resurfacing, and facial peels are just a few of the other cosmetic services available.

Located at 7400 State Line Road, Prairie Village, KS 66208, KU Eye Center will remain open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and KU Optical  9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

To contact the KU Eye Miller Clinic, please call 913-588-6688.

         In keeping with the mission of providing exceptional, full service eye care, KU Eye Center offers the extra convenience of an onsite optical shop. 

          Here, patients can browse the over 500 frames - from budget to designer brands - and fill their prescriptions for eyeglasses and frames, sunglasses, readers and contact lenses. Conceived as a way to better accommodate KUMC and UKP employees and to provide additional services to our community, KU Optical accepts a variety of insurances, including VSP, Superior Vision, Medicare and Kansas Medicaid. KU Eye can accept prescriptions from all providers.

            With plenty of free, close-by parking, KU Optical will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to serve your needs.
