Progressive Eyecare & Eyewear, Your Optometrist in Indianapolis and Fishers

Here at Progressive Eyecare in Indianapolis and Fishers, our optometry team is dedicated to providing the best quality of eye care to our patients. We know how vital it is to maintain eye health to function throughout your daily life. Physical changes in the eyes from age, disease, or a chronic condition can make it harder for your eyes to perform at their optimal level. Dr. Tim Birtwhistle and his committed staff are here to provide you with the quality eye care you need to maintain or improve your vision. 

It All Starts with An Eye Exam

If you are experiencing difficulty with your vision, it is essential to visit our team before the issue worsens. We will review your vision history, check your eyes' structure, look for signs indicating a problem, and make a diagnosis based on our findings. After the exam is completed and a diagnosis has been made, our optometrists will provide you with the right kind of eye care needed for your condition.   

We use advanced diagnostic technology in conjunction with years of eye care experience. Patients benefit from cutting-edge technology because it forms the best possible diagnosis and treatment for any issue. We can detect a problem early on in its formation and help the patient get ahead of the symptoms and conditions associated with the issue. If you suffer from an eye disease or a chronic condition, eye exams also inform us of any changes in your condition and the kind of treatment needed.

Our Optometrist Can Help with Vision Correction and More

Eye care does not end with getting a diagnosis or status update on a chronic condition. We will then work with you to make a prescription that treats your specific vision issue. You will be able to see clearly again with the help of glasses, contacts, or Lasik eye surgery. We can fit you with prescription sunglasses for those times when you need vision and protection from the sun. Our team can also help you with vision issues caused by chronic conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetes.
