We Are Your Kansas City Optometrists
If you’re looking for friendly staff and caring professionals in Kansas City, you should have your eyes examined by a Kessler Eye Care optometrist. Understanding each of our client’s needs and lifestyle is one of our goals, and we make sure to incorporate it into the well-rounded treatment our patients receive, even for something simple as whether to recommend eyeglasses or contacts.
Kessler Eye Care is a full service optometric practice. In addition to performing routine eye exams, our eye care professionals diagnose and treat eye diseases and eye conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and macular degeneration. Dr. Kessler also provides surgical consultations and co-management and can refer you to experts in eye surgery and LASIK.

A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
