One place for excellence in eyecare

Welcome to Metzger Eye Care

If you’re looking for a great eye care experience in the Northern Kentucky area, with a friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff to provide you with superior eyecare service, look no further than the Optometrists at Metzger Eye Care.

Good eye care is important for children and adults alike. For children, this ensures their success throughout school and in their extra-curricular activities. The eyes are the window into the world of learning, and sharp vision means sharp learning.

Good eye care for adults is essential to be sure that sight-threatening eye diseases that begin to creep up as you get older can be caught and treated successfully before damage can be done to your vision.

Our experienced team of eye doctors led by Dr.Julie Metzger will be able to help you with comprehensive eye exams, pediatric eyecare and treatment for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

We are excited to serve the Northern Kentucky community and we accept many forms of insurance.

Q&A with Our Doctors | Dry Eye Syndrome
What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

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. More about Dry Eyes...

What are the typical treatments for dry eyes?

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. More about Dry Eyes...

Are there any recommendations to help people avoid 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. More about Dry Eyes...
