Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, vision issues often go undetected since most eye disorders don't have clear symptoms.
While dry eye isn’t a serious condition, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. You may find your eyes get tired faster or you have difficulty reading. Not to mention the discomfort of a burning sensation or blurry vision.
If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, it can seem a bit intimidating. After all, you’re inserting something into your eye! Let’s ease your mind about the first step – your contact lens exam.
Macular degeneration, commonly referred to as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is the single largest cause of sight loss in the developed world and affects more than 10 million Americans.
Having worn glasses and contact lenses at a young age, Dr. Murphy knew she wanted to be an optometrist! She graduated from the University of Missouri – Saint Louis College of Optometry in 1988, is a member of local and state optometric associations, and has been in private practice for over 25 years! With 10 years of dedicated service to the Crestwood community, Dr. Murphy specializes in primary eye care, contact lenses, and macular degeneration.
Dr. Tantsits has been a doctor at Primary Eyecare & Eyeware since July of 2020 when she graduated from the University of Missouri St. Louis College of Optometry. But Dr Tantsits was no stranger to our office as she had been working here as an optician for 5 years as she finished up her undergraduate degree at St. Louis University, and throughout her optometry school years. She has always been interested in private practice and has helped our office grow in so very many ways since she came on board.
With our up-to-date equipment and technology, you can be confident in knowing that you are receiving top-tier care in the most thorough exam you may have ever experienced.
As usual fantastic experience. I have been a patient of Mary Murphy for 16 years. She knows her stuff and is truly concerned about her patients. Omg the staff of her girls totally rock,! They are my fashion divas that help me pick the most awesome glasses. Their selection of awesome quality frames is fantastic!! The only eye doctor I will go to till the end!!
Dr. Mary and Dr. Maria with their staff were all very accommodating and sweet during my visit with them. I went to a huge box chain store last year and they didn't fix my vision after telling them that road signs are unclear when I drive, so my vision has been slightly blurry ever since. Dr. Maria fixed my eyesight after the exam and I can finally see clearly! I picked out contacts and glasses and I'm so pleased with their kindness and compassion with what they do. I'll come back every year! Thank you so much, ladies!!!! :)
Dr Murphy & her crew are the best! Polite, respectful & professional. I know my eyes are getting the best attention. And I LOVE the selection of frames. Something for everyone & in lots of colors, shapes & sizes. Btw, I’ve been a patient of Dr Mary Murphy for over 20 years.
Quite literally the best experience I've ever had going to the eye doctor. Everyone was so nice and helpful, they even figured out how to get my contacts for the lowest cost I've ever seen. The store is so cute and the positive and friendly atmosphere makes you feel like you're on a fun outing rather than an appointment to check off your to-do list. Highly recommend!
Coming to Primary Eye Care is such a fun experience! This team always strikes the perfect balance of professional, fun, and warm. The personalized service is world class and the selection of frames is second to none. Great doctors with the most wonderful personalities who care about their patients combined with a personable, caring staff….I love to come to this eye care practice!!!! The best in town!
