Eyecare Services

You can never be too careful when it comes to your vision. Age, medical conditions, eye injuries, and eye diseases can all take a toll on your eye health and lead to vision loss. At Richards & Wegener, we offer advanced vision care services designed to protect and improve your vision throughout your life. From comprehensive eye exams to eye disease management and treatment, you can have full confidence in our team to provide the optometry services you need.

Eye Exams

Eye exams are a priority at Richards & Wegener. During a comprehensive eye exam, we’ll test your visual acuity, eye focus, and eye teaming skills. If you have refractive errors that impair your vision, we’ll recommend corrective lenses to improve your sight. If you have poor focus or teaming skills, we’ll recommend a course of action to correct these problems so you can see more clearly.

Eye health is also important to the quality of your vision. Using precision optometry equipment, your Liberty eye doctor, Alan Wegener, OD, will evaluate your eye health to detect signs of diseases that can cause irreparable damage to your sight. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases can prevent permanent vision loss.

Eye Disease Management and Treatment

As you grow older, there’s greater risk of your developing eye conditions and diseases like cataracts, dry eye, macular degeneration, and glaucoma, just to name a few. Left unchecked, these diseases can lead to loss of vision. By detecting symptoms early, your Liberty eye doctor can help manage and treat symptoms to avoid permanent loss of sight. We also offer computer vision treatment and urgent eye care services for emergency situations that may arise with your eyes.

Eyeglasses and Contacts

If you need prescription eyeglasses, you’ll find our selection of eyeglass frames and advanced lens technology second to none in the area, making it easy to find exactly what you want and need. We also offer an assortment of contact lenses to include soft contacts, rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contacts, daily wear, extended wear, and disposable contacts to suit your prescription, budget, and way of life.


LASIK surgery is an alternate option to correcting refractive errors in your vision. Your Liberty eye doctor provides pre- and post-op care for this procedure. After a careful review of your medical history and comprehensive eye exam, we can determine if you’re a good candidate for this surgery.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had such a great experience today! It was hands down the most personable and informational eye exam I have ever had and I have been wearing glasses nearly my entire life! Highly recommend!"
  • "Dr. Wegener was so great with my daughter! She had a previous experience at another optometrist's office that left her feeling pretty scared about eye exams. Dr. Wegener was patient, explained everything in detail, completed her exam without any surprises or scares, and was very encouraging when she was picking out frames. She left with a huge smile on her face, excited to start wearing glasses. Will definitely be bringing the rest of the family! Thanks, Dr. Wegener!"
  • "It was an amazing experience and they explained everything very well. Everyone made me feel super comfortable and made sure I understood what they were explaining to me. Will definitely refer everyone I know to them and I am definitely making this my permanent eye doctor office."
  • "Doctor Wegener goes above and beyond for his patients. I can't say enough good things about him. He responds extremely quickly even after hours through their Facebook page and even met us after hours for an emergency. I refer everyone I know to him."
  • "Recently visited Dr. Wegener for our 7 year old son. We had a great experience! Dr Wegener was patient with our son's wiggles, but communicated clearly with him, in order to get a thorough exam. Dr. Wegener took care to fit our son's glasses well, which doesn't always happen at larger eyewear stores. I also appreciated all the education Dr Wegener provided. Ashley, the receptionist, is friendly and helpful, and the entire office is calm and welcoming."

  • "I can't say enough great things about Doctor Wegener. He fit my son in short notice for an eye issue and met my husband on a day the office was closed for what we considered an emergency. He's incredibly kind and cares about his patients. I will recommend him to everyone"
    Joleen J.
  • "Dr. Wegener and his staff are amazing. We saw him for a second opinion and couldn't have been happier with our experience. He was extremely thorough and really got to the root of the problem. We have loved every aspect of our care and will definitely be regular patients from now on."
    Christine M.
  • "Staff is so friendly & helpful and there is a calm feel to the office which is so nice. You don't feel like you're in a cattle call waiting for your number. Dr. Wegener equally brings a relaxed, calm, yet thorough and knowledgeable experience. He is the first in all my years of eye exams and eyewear fittings who took the time to actually educate me on my eyes and care for them. You get a personal feel and know you've been heard.

    For those who avoid making phone calls to another human being for appointments - fear not! You can use messenger or texts to talk to them!

    Great experience, highly recommend!"
