Jerde Eye Specialists strives to provide high quality eye care and innovative technology at an affordable price where patients feel like part of the family.

Education is an important part of the practice, owned by Eric Jerde, O.D., and his wife, Ashley Thill, O.D. The team includes opticians Rhonda and Caton.

"We take time with our patients to make sure they understand why their vision is changing and why we recommend the glasses, contacts or other treatments," said Dr. Jerde. "All treatments and recommendations are made with keeping the overall health of the patient at the forefront of our minds."

The practice started as American Eyewear Center in 1987. Doctors Jerde and Thill bought the practice in Sunset Hills in April 2018 to be close to family and friends.

Services available include routine eye care, medical eye care, glasses, contacts, dry eye therapy, diabetic eye exams, scleral contact lenses, and cataract/glaucoma/macular degeneration management. Plus, Jerde is adding multiple name-brand frames to the already extensive 1,700 frame selection.

With the increased usage of technology, dry eye treatment is an increasing need.

"Dry eye treatments are vast in number and able to be individualized for each patient," Jerde said. "Through tear samples and imaging, we are able to create a targeted therapy for each person based on the type and cause of the dryness."

Patients appreciate the inviting atmosphere, the frame selection and how much Jerde Eye Specialists "truly cares about each individual that we get the pleasure to take care of."
